There lies a great difference between text book medicine and the world of practicing physician. Text book medicine is purely a Science whereas; treating a patient is an art. The world of practicing physician requires a different set of skills and knowledge. Text book medicine no doubt provides the conceptual framework for treatment but no doctor can treat a patient without the use of his or her intuitive practices. In the story Birth the way Andrew brings back a still born child to life, is a testimony to this fact. The nurse at first dumps the child thinking it to be dead. But Andrews takes a chance and the miracle happen. He in the beginning applies his text book knowledge but the child does not recover. He doesn’t lose heart. He applies his own intuitive method and the miracle then happened. Treatment is Science and beyond. It is both a science and an art. The story Birth is a realistic fiction. In other words, the elements of the story have been taken from real life experiences and woven in the fabric of fiction.
