It is with pleasure that I agreed to say a few words in commending this book to the public. Physiology and Hygiene are the two subjects of which our people have no accurate knowledge. In the days when I graduated, it was considered a necessary part of general education that a student should have a knowledge of Physiology and Psychology; the one was taught in the F.A. class and the other in the B.A. class. Those were times when specialisation had not obsessed the public mind as it has done now. Fortunately for us, the educational authorities are now very anxious that students in the earlier classes should have some general idea of the human constitution and of its ailments. So far as I am aware, there is no book in Tamil which treats of the subjects with care and precision. Mr. Erambaranathan has accomplished that task satisfactorily.
After giving a lucid description of the visible and non-visible organs of the human body and of their component parts, the author deals with the necessity for food and air and of their transformation into blood etc. Further information on essential matters is contained in the succeeding chapters. The comparison in chapter 16 of our body to a kingdom is interesting and instructive. The first part of the book ends here.
In the second part, diseases and their causes
