      Book: "Leprosy and a life in South India: journeys with a Tamil Brahmin" / by James Staples - London: Rowan&Littlefield (Lexington book) , pp. ISBN: Drawing on solid ethnographic fieldwork as well as many hours of interviews, Leprosy and a Life in South India: Journeys with a Tamil Brahmin tells the life story of Das. Early written records giving clinical descriptions generally accepted as being true leprosy date from BC to possibly as early as BC in India, where a disease called Kushta was distinguished from vitiligo. 4 Chinese documents from about BC that mention skin lesions, numbness, and loss of eyebrows attest to the spread of the disease.

      Various skin diseases translated as leprosy appear in the ancient Indian text, the Atharava Veda, by BC. Another Indian text, the Manusmriti ( BC),  prohibited contact with those infected with the disease and made marriage to a person infected with leprosy ciation: /ˈlɛprəsi/. The patients come from all over India and have received treatment at a local hospital run by the Leprosy Mission. In theory, leprosy is easy to treat, requiring a course of drugs lasting between.

      Many of the individuals that we serve in India, China, Nepal and Kenya received the Multi-Drug Therapy (MDT) too late to stop the disfiguring degeneration that marks a leprosy patient. Cultural stigmas and fear have forced them to leave their homes, rejected by .   The hands of Bodhe Annasuya, 45, who acquired leprosy when she was 12 years old. She lives in Balaji Nagar, a leprosy colony, with her husband and adopted son, in Hyderabad, : Apoorva Mandavilli.

Introduction Leprosy is one of the oldest diseases known to man (see Chapter ). Exclusion from society has been a feature of leprosy from its earliest descriptions onwards (e.g., Numbers –15, NIV Bible). In the times of the Old Testament, the exclusion was not just a social phenomenon but a divine institution, which served as a public health measure to contain an infectious disease.
