Description of "V.Q.E (eBook)"

In 1980, after completing medical school in India, a young Indian physician lands in Britain in pursuit of his dream to get to the United States. He is young, a full 26-year-old, ambitious and opinionated. The two and half years that he spends in Britain prior to coming to the United States were eventful years and this book captures that period
It is set in Great Britain of the early 1980's and comprises a medley of experiences: of a young, nationalist Indian coming to the land of his colonial masters, a new medical graduate negotiating the travails of an international medical career and of an objective spectator looking down upon this once great power. Thrown into this unlikely cocktail is the political backdrop of Britain in the 80, s- the rise of Margaret Thatcher, the Royal Wedding of Princess Diana and Prince Charles, the Falkland War and British racism.
