Dear Dr Dhara Thank you. You are too kind to write this. Honestly I do not deserve. You are right about my other work in last 5 months. My new book Early Diagnosis of Foot Drop due to Leprosy took me 4-5 months to complete.

In 25 days 600 researchers have read/downloaded this work. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/323747843_Early_Diagnosis_in_Foot_Drop_due_to_Leprosy Please read and give your suggestion. with regards pankaj
