E-sclepieion is a story set against the imaginary scenario of a medical center in Chennai (one among a global chain of hospitals) towards the end of the 21st century. It is an era when healthcare has been taken up as a universal concern and hospitals the world over have come under mandatory global control and administration; an era when the care of the sick has evolved into a 'high-tech, no-talk, no-touch' enterprise.
The name E-sclepieion reminds one of the healing sanctuaries in ancient Greece dedicated to Aesclepios, the Greek god of medicine. The ancient Greeks believed that bodily healing could take place only in association with healing of the mind.
Subbu Sampath is pleased that at a time when the care of the sick has been entirely handed over to robotic technology, his request for examination by a human doctor has been granted. Expectations run high in his mind as he enters the Chennai E-sclepieion. He is going to be face to face with a human doctor! But the incessant volley of soulless admonitions and the ever present vigilance by the capricious robots throws Subbu into an emotional mayhem. He realizes how much he needs the kind words and healing touch of Dr. Chakraborthy to calm his troubled mind and start the healing process - much more in fact than E-sclepieion's electro-bio-nano-technology, molecular healing techniques and the fabled brain modulation device.
