Meeting New People....

A new concept which I learnt when I came to Bengaluru last year to start off a new life as a postgraduate. Before I go on with my view about it let me tell you two little stories.
                                                                          It all started with the passing of my final year. The final step in medicine which once taken properly gives you the power to diagnose and treat people. The final year was followed by a gruelling internship. Most of us tried to finish it in our own college but many of my friends, batchmates and acquaintances left the college to pursue their dream of Post Graduation and do a dummy internship in centres where they could just pay money and get on with the coaching for post-graduation entrance. During my internship, I was one of the most hardworking interns i.e. I would take care of all the patients admitted under my unit to the best of my abilities. Be it a simple duty in the postoperative ward or a heavy duty in ICCU, I would never shy a…

The Nervousness

The idea behind this piece is my nervousness. Most of the times when I write it is about some thought, an idea which had come to me or some observation which I might have made some time ago. Today I thought of writing in the real-time i.e. writing when I am feeling it. By 'it' I mean the feeling which has encouraged me to write is right here sitting in my head and making me think things.


Let me start with a question. Has it ever happened to you that someone you like a lot is always around you, sits around you for the most part of the day? Sometimes conversing with you, sometimes ignoring you and sometimes trying to notice you while you are not looking? It has happened to me many times, mostly because I really start liking and trusting people pretty soon. Most of the times I just assume that the other person would be good to me if I am honest, straightforward and clear about my ideas, thoughts and feeling in some cases. Well, to say it, in other words, my life has been full of …

Wild Style

DISCLAIMER - Before I proceed further to discuss the crux of this write-up in my life I would like to say that I do not blame anyone or intend to point a finger in anyone's direction by my opinions of the society, culture, the country I live in.                                                         There is a very specific reason why I took up this project - "WILD STYLE". Being born in one of the most aggressive and notorious states of India has its own benefits and negative points. Since my under graduation days I have been labelled as an outsider where ever I go. I have mostly not been accepted easily by any group of people, friends or a new community. I believe that it happens to everyone i.e. being accepted in a college, department, hostel floor and finally by a group of people is a process. But in my case, the scenario has been a little different because mostly the acceptance level reaches its peak at the department level.

Sun Sets on Everything....

Recently I experienced a loss of someone very close to me. Although it made me extremely sad but also made me think about things. Things like what is life? What are we doing everyday i.e. while we are at work or just sitting around and chatting with a friend or are watching a movie in a theatre/home or just hitting the pub at odd timings and coming back late on a Saturday Night. Yeah, I know there are many other things which we do apart from the things which I have mentioned but I thought I would list the most common and generic ways of passing time in everyday life. 
                                                                           Coming back to the point from where it all started. By 'it' I mean my thinking process of thinking things i.e. looking at grey areas of life. It was a monsoon of 2012 when I first realized that even my brain could contemplate thoughts like empathy, thinking ahead of time and making plans for future. Although the trigger for it was too unfo…

Awards and Achievements......

Born in a family of intellectuals it was always difficult for me to cope up with the achievements of my parents and siblings. The only discussion which used to take place for the most part of the year was how should we change and improvise our strategy to be at top of the class, only academically. Physical superiority was never a strong suit at my home. Being fit and involved in any kind of physical work was looked down upon as a distraction and deviation from the real course of life. The Right Path.

                                                                                   Meeting new people every year, those who would join the class with each new session was looked upon as measuring up them. Measuring them up in their intellect, physical prowess and finally coming to a conclusion what should be the new change in our plans to succeed in that year of life. I still remember myself as the black sheep of the family. Someone, who would never go in the direction of masses or the on…

Misunderstood Girl !! 2.0

Society strikes back again. It looks as if all the things I mentioned in Misunderstood Girl (Click it) were not enough. It had to go for a person's identity and individuality. Sometimes I think, Why do people think that what they think is absolutely right and there can be no other thought regarding that particular matter?                                                                             Most of my posts are written after research (as much as I can do). I never write when I am angry or am being influenced by any kind of emotions. I feel the blogs or any kind of post which I give should be self-explanatory and easy for everyone to understand. They should help them to change their point of view which is what they would do after a stimulus for a thought. This is the first time I started writing because I got angry over certain things. I got so angry that I felt like punching in my almirah but I have learnt it the hard way that it is not the best way to vent anger.

Micro Me 2.0!

As per the contrary belief, Microbiology is not just a theoretical subject. It's is one of the most dynamic, ever-changing and wonderful medical subjects I have known. It not only consists of a great deal of benchwork for daily diagnostic tests but also has a lot of potential to just be a research subject. When I entered the department I was subject to various basic sections as I have already described in Micro me! (click it) That frustrated me a little, but to my surprise, I feel that it was something very important for me to be a complete Resident in my department eg. Sample collection and transportation is a very important part and influencer for quality reporting in any setup.                                                                               Mostly, as a clinician, we do not realize the importance of these basic and very small things. I don't say that it's a news for all of you but sometimes we tend to overlook these important aspects like having an accurat…
