How do you find something hidden in plain sight? Begin in a village named for an epidemic, witness an exorcism, and enter a labyrinth. Emerge with a mirage and meet a curious cartographer. Journey 60 million years with a turtle and a frog. Then, finally, find Gilbert Hill. Once Upon A Hill is a plea from Kalpish Ratna to their city of Bombay. Gilbert Hill is where our past and future are gathered. Shall we revere this still point, or as seems inexorable, destroy it with our dance? About the Authors Ishrat Syed and Kalpana Swaminathan write together as Kalpish Ratna. Ishrat Syed is a paediatric and general surgeon. Kalpana Swaminathan is a paediatric surgeon. Their previous book, The Quarantine Papers, was short-listed for various awards.
