Mridula Ramanna has researched the impact of Western medical thinking and practices on the early institutions of rest and cure in mid-19th century Bombay. Among the major themes she addresses here are: British medical reformist policies and the Indian reactions they evoked- complex interrelations between power, politics and people in the domain of the public health and civic amenities- and colonial and indigenous paradigms of medical practice and practiconers that sometimes bordered on medical activism.
