A doctor looks at every patient from the perspective of his medical problem. A family physician looks not only at the medical problem on hand, but also at the pulls and pushes, which tear apart the human spirit. Doctors and Devils offers the unique family-physician's perspective on life. It is captured in both short stories and poems that bring a humane touch to some of the medical illnesses spoken about in this novel. None of these stories are factual, but many have realistic qualities based on years of medical experience.

Dr. Ratan Gajwani was born in Rohri, Sindh, where he was educated in the Sindhi vernacular. After the Partition of India, as with most Sindhi Hindus, he came to Bombay, where he studied medicine. He is a self-taught Hindi speaker. He learned Hindi, by buying and studying a primer, as it was India's national language. Throughout the years, he has gained a strong understanding of languages and has a working knowledge of Hindi and Urdu, besides Sindhi, and English. After completing his medical education and a fellowship in anaesthesiology in 1957, he worked at several hospitals in India. In 1972, he had to leave anaesthesiology, due to health problems. He has been practicing as a family physician in Bombay, for over 40 years. In discussing his literary interests, Dr. Gajwani mentioned, "Doctors have windows open in many houses. They have the privilege of studying life in the raw. The undercurrents of love and hate in many families are clear to them. I have drawn on some of these to make up stories of my own. Thus, many of my stories have a medical background." Dr. Gajwani has two children and four grandchildren and lives with his wife in Mumbai, India.
