The THC, under a gibbous moon, is a gentle adult novel that deals with some everyday situations and other not-so-common problems. The three characters of the book visit a health farm, The Total Holistic Centre (THE THC) to heal their physical ailments... there is Samar who hopes for a cure for impotence and an addiction to nicotine, Sanjaneka who suffers from arthritic osteoporosis and Varun who is depressed and an insomniac. The trio become friends at the THC and help each other heal and in their short stay, the need to learn that physical ailments are very often a by-product of deeper psychological trauma and that to cure themselves they must close the doors from the past and open new ones ahead. The author explores the mindset of people and everyday happenings in life.

The THC is a positive book that shows that every problem has a solution (however unusual) and all answers can be found within oneself. The THC is the outcome of Manoj’s keen sense of observation and optimistic approach to life which the author likes to share with his readers. To unearth something that is so obvious yet hidden makes his book interesting and thrilling!

Book excerpt:

Unless you learn to accept and love yourself, no treatment will give you the cure you want,” said the doctor, taking back the oval mirror. “Today I will give you a simple exercise to do. You must find another patient on campus and tell them your story. Telling me will not help as much as telling another patient. Sit outside and let your words escape into the universe. Tell it slowly but surely and the talking will release you from the past, at least for now. It will be a start."
Sanjaneka was unable to speak, and merely nodded her head. She knew the good doctor was right. As she rose to leave, the doctor continued, “There is comfort in strangers. They will not judge you harshly.”
