New Delhi, Delhi, India Dr. Krishna Saksena today launched her new book ‘Whispers of Time’ at India International Centre in New Delhi. The book was unveiled by Smt. Smriti Zubin Irani, Minister of Textiles and Minister of Women and Child Development. Also present at the event was Lady Kishwar Desai, renowned Author and Columnist, who presented her comments on the Book and journey of Dr. Saksena. Smt. Smriti Zubin Irani with Dr. Krishna Saksena during launch of the book Whispers of Time ‘Whispers of Time’ witnesses three generations in the author’s long life of ninety years in which she found a great difference. If the first was too strict and severe in clinging hard to traditions, the second had softened down to new values of love and helpfulness. In a way it was a beautiful world of togetherness. But this world soon dwindles into a world of selfishness and deceit. The series of events are developed in a powerful manner that makes the novel both real and revealing. Smt. Smriti Zubin Irani with Dr. Krishna Saksena during launch of the book Whispers of Time Speaking at the launch, Dr. Krishna Saksena says about ‘Whispers of Time’, “In my last 3 generations, I witnessed the importance of money and how money rules the world. Through this book, I have tried to explain how cutting the throat of others and living a life of outward show and grand style is the fashion of today and I believe this book will be a practical eye-opener for the young generation.” Commenting on the book, Smt. Smriti Zubin Irani said, ‘’The book is a manifesto of women hood. You speak nonchalantly about the discrimination between a son and a daughter but you are not sad about it, you write in a way that says the daughter is waiting for the day when she is able to prove herself. The book is able to wrap regression with laughter; this shows the beauty of the writer’s skill and makes it distinguishable from others. I just hope we come together again on your 100th year Krishnaji to celebrate yet another book and yet another success.’’ About Dr. Krishna Saksena Dr. Krishna Saksena is a author of unbound name and fame.

Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India

  • Bed-bound, 67 years old female couldn’t walk due to severe pain, got treated and discharged the same day
  • India’s first and only Tessys machine used for spinal endoscopy to avoid blood loss and minimize the treatment time


A 67 years old woman, experiencing severe pain in her left leg was brought to Jaypee Hospital, Noida. Almost unable to walk, the woman had been bed-bound from 6 months and couldn’t even go to the toilet on her own due to excruciating pain and numbness in her left leg. The doctors figured that either an endoscopy or an open spine operation had to be performed on her to get rid of the pain she experienced.


Jaypee Hospital


Thanks to the recent cutting-edge inventions, open spine surgery can now be replaced by endoscopy for better & quicker results, which is as effective as the conventional operation with more advantages. The team of doctors headed by Dr. Devashish Sharma, Consultant, Institute of Spine at Jaypee Hospital, Noida, performed spine endoscopy on the patient as opposed to the conventional open spine surgery which involves severe postoperative pain (due to incision of tissues), complete unconsciousness (general anesthesia), blood loss, ICU care and multiple stitches leading to surgical scar. The patient very easily got relief from pain, the same day, in just 45 minutes without having to go through any of the above mentioned problems.


Dr. Devashish Sharma, Consultant, Institute of Spine at Jaypee Hospital, Noida, says, “Nowadays, our modern lifestyles and the ways of working in the corporate world allow sitting in front of a laptop for 6 or more hours continuously. That, along with the lack of exercise is one of the major causes of spinal diseases in young patients. On the other hand, increase in the consumption of junk food has ruined our balanced diet and reduced the intake of proper enriching nutrients. Neck pain (cervical), low back pain (lumbar) are a few of the problems that people experience because of their bad habits. Exercising, Yoga and keeping our day-to-day activities in check shall certainly help in the decrease of such diseases.”


He further added that, “We, at Jaypee Hospital, use the ‘TESSYS’ technology by Joimax for any endoscopic operations. It is one of the most high-tech instruments we use. Manufactured in Germany, Tessys by Joimax is a very reliable and effective healthcare instrument which is the only technology for a successful Spine endoscopy.”


There has been a 60 per cent rise in spinal problems among the youth. According to a survey, every fifth Indian in the age group 20-30 suffers from various types of spinal ailments, which until a decade ago were common among senior citizens only.
