Gauahar Khan was born in Daryaganj in India but is believed to have spent considerable time in Pakistan. The title of Gauahar Khan is given to a Punjabi writer by his first name, and is the name by which his two most famous works are translated: Gauahar Kairi Gazebo and Gauahar Kehrang. He is a prolific writer and biographer who have produced eighteen novels in total, including the bestseller Gauahar Khan’s Body (also known as Gauahar Kay Khalsa). As a biographer, Gauahar Khan has written about many famous figures such as Sardaracharya Subhas Chandra Bose, Raja Ravi Verma, Joginder Singh, Raja Sawai Raja Mandal, and Balabhadra Sen. The late Bikram Yoga founder B.K.S. Yash Chopra is another famous personality from whom Gauahar has written several books about.
While Gauahar does not discuss his own measurements in detail in his books, he has created a unique niche for himself as a critic of modern and Western academic and scientific measurement systems. He frequently refers to modern technology and scientific measurement systems as “modern ways of measuring things”. Although he criticizes modern science and its measurements, he does not believe in their outright replacement. Instead he argues that we should use both measuring methods simultaneously for accurate measurements, logic, objectivity, and objectivity in measurements.

One of Gauahar’s most interesting and oft quoted lines is,” Numbers and measures are only tools, they are not values. The concepts that go with them are not worth much except for trivia. How many fingers do you have to scratch before it sticks? What is the size of the Earth? The answers are as near as anybody can get.”
It is interesting to note that Gauahar Khan uses the quote above, which is from a Beni Your nan ad, to show how easy it is to kill your faith in numbers, measurement, and science in general. He says how easy it is to kill your belief in the numbers and the measurement of life and even points out how often this happens throughout history. One might say that this is perhaps an off-point comment on the separation between religion and science, and perhaps a true point. However, in the end, one must always be careful to separate the two.
Gauahar Khan’s writing style is extremely detailed and sometimes difficult to understand, especially if one is a non-native English speaker. However, once one gets past this early stage, Gauahar Khan’s work is extremely enjoyable to read. As a former practicing physician, he clearly writes about the physical and scientific side of human life. He shows the flaws in the methods and beliefs of many scientists, proving once again the fact that the commonly held scientific methodologies are nothing more than vanity projects, and that they have proven nothing. Khan is also extremely knowledgeable about his subject matter, clearly communicating his knowledge through the written text.
Overall, this is an excellent book on a subject that is all the more important than ever, and one that is necessary for everyone to know more about. Reading this book will allow many people to begin to better understand themselves and what their place in the world is, as well as allow them a deeper understanding of how science and religion can help us make sense of life. A very interesting and enlightening read.
