This leads to the quest for enlightenment. Her writing, her words are so beautifully written, each word describes something out of this world. For 4 years she fought the cancer that ravaged her body very badly. She had her family and with their love and help she took it on very bravely. She was admitted to hospital where she went into a coma. Doctors had given up hope that she would live again. She felt it was almighty's graces that this lovely lady, pure-hearted Anita Moorjani who went into coma, saw in the coma, the ethereal world, her father, her dear friend who had died of cancer. She even saw the nurse and doctors who were treating her. When she came out of her coma, she was also completely cured of cancer claims Anita Moorjani.

Perhaps after life experiences in a moment of deep distress falls in the other side of the spectrum. Physicians treating terminally-ill patients should be more aware of aspects of illness which goes beyond the physical.

Anita Moorjani's inspirational book is a reminder of that need. It is well written in a simple yet elegant style.
