I was born and brought up in a traditional Hindu family; reliance on medicine was very strong. After graduating with a science degree from Punjab University, I took a job at Delhi University. However, I used to suffer frequently from dysentery and stomach trouble. I was very afraid of eating certain types of food and of eating outdoors. In 1954 I got a scholarship and went to Harvard University in the United States for higher studies. There also I had recurring stomach trouble and was examined by doctors frequently. One said that the source of my stomach difficulties was emotional disturbance.

I thought if I could gain peace of mind, I would be all right. Once I read an advertisement in The Christian Science Monitor on how one could gain peace of mind by reading Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. In a Christian Science Reading Room I met an elderly woman who told me that she had lived without medicines all her life. I was amazed to hear this. She invited me to attend services in a nearby Church of Christ, Scientist.
