27 more days for the exam....[my 7th till now and 6 more to go]

weight gain..
this cold stress and added laziness in the morning due to that...
daily bombardment of pure nonsensical friends updates in fb....

Closing this blog forever...


Changing priorities in life...
Loads of crap people...
Hypocrites...
less passion...
fb...
exams...
picture blogging

few of the reasons for me to close this blog permanently....and this time am pretty sure that am not coming back here again...When i initially started writing it was just me and this space but gradually i started changing and started writing for others.It was just wasnt me here.Frankly i think many here just read my blog coz i manage to read theirs like u scratch mine and me yours[like Raksha says] thing.And with fb this year i slowly started loosing interest in posting frequently and my posts response have been dropped accordingly.
Other main reason is that i was never truly passionate about what i write and always felt that am more interested in humor/medicine blogs and some few personal ones rather than reviews,stories and poetry.For these things i have net,newspapers and why would i be spending my time in reading such things here[sorry no offence to anyone].
After much thinking i have finally decided to put an end to this.This space will be always be special to me for many reasons-improved my language/some great cool friends.
Some day will surely come back with real me and would definitely inform you guys then...til then bye guys!! :)

p.s-
already nostalgic:(
would continue to read the blogs i have liked..so people plz keep writing...

memory stunts...

'there is nothing like good and bad memory but only trained and untrained one'

many say success in any field is 99% effort + 1%luck but i think in medical field its 99% memory and just 1% luck...coz medical science is more of fact based and the little bit of clinics u do is no where near the amount of theory u need to know.Many of our seniors[read profs] say key is to understand the things and do them practically but i think most the things u read/hear cant be seen and its impractical to expect to learn everything just by clinical knowledge.And this problem of retaining things is more so when u r preparing for competitive exams like pg,upsce etc where more than what to remember its more of how to remember.
Just think for a sec..how in gods name are u going to remember the mc se of Carbamazepine drug or the drugs causing SLE by just understanding the subject or agonist of any particular receptor..?? Either u have to study it byheart like we did during high school [even mathematical problems weren't spared then] or just use some memory techniques like acronyms,mnemonics and apply them accordingly.
Making a mnemonic or any acronym is like creating a music..its depends on your personality[like an art] and time and interest u invest in doing it....if u really want to remember anything u just have to invest accordingly and frankly there is no other short cut.
Throught my UG like [and even now] i was quite famous for this among my friends and in fact some of my mnemonics which i had made then are helping me even now for my exams..Some of them are-
rIght-right side heart murmurs Increase on inspiration..
among LAs anything with 2i is an amide...
WTF* pelcan-wimburger,tremmerfeld,franklin line and pelcan spur...scurvy radiological signs
cArbamazepine-Ataxia[mc]>Anemia[most serious]
Sulfonylureas[oral hypoglycemic] patients must be Small-so given in thin patients and metformin in obese...
Imagine a tree @ ur sacred place....Trazadone causes priaprism[painful erection]
Lamotrigine causes a line in your skin-cause Steven Johnson syndrome
Clip on your hair-doc for Hairy CL is Cladribine

key is just to use the techniques accordingly and among these the most powerful one is visual ones[like trazadone] coz what ever u hear/see is visualized inside your brain and in this way why not use it constructively and remember few things!!

p.s-
*wtf-wow thats funny
1-it may be worlds fastest rubic cube solver or some UPSCE topper..its just pure memory which helps them do things they do more efficiently...
2-talking like an expert here doesn't make me one...its just my opinion and little bit of knowledge i have gained during my medical life....

random thoughts of an unemployed mind...

days are getting colder and my schedule tighter..more classes with less time to cover them and the time spent in preparations are inversely proportion to your retention in neocortex...think good planning and time management are the keys now...

watching Inception was a big mistake...its a nice movie but no where entertaining and instead shd have seen despicable me..animation movies are always the best bet when it comes to entertainment and frankly even the worst made are quite entertaining..

blogstipation is an epidemic now...many fellow bloggers have virtually stopped writing and it has caught t on me too..i really dont think anyone is interested whether i shit,eat or sleep...this is one reason i never use twitter [last update was 27 days back saying 'i hate twitter']

lilliput living next door is quite amazing..i always hear him either crying or screaming [till his throat burst out]...and i still i haven't unleashed my ultimate weapon against him ie..chocolates...best way to make a kid your fan/follower..;)

house s07 coming ..starting 23 sept...

according to medicine personality is an unmodifiable major criteria for heart diseases...just think about it!..that means personality u have cant be changed at all [as many books say] and once u get its the end...

Ego/superego



id-want to go out with friends,movies etc
ego-its not the right time for worldly pleasures since many exams are fast approaching
superego-wont affect my moral consciousness though..

had an awesome psychiatry class[i mean actual classroom class not sessions] this week..just loved it...subj looks nice in the books.

p.s-

just got my net conn back..
ANy one been to inception??....
life @ new home is quite diffn...its an apartment with many children around [who scream all the time] and nosy old ladies...
one of my friends working in PHC is being transferred from his work place for his honesty...am sorry for him and have advised to be less sincere next time..
i just love this..Kangna by Dr Zueus..good old punjabi pop songs [almost extinct now days]

update on life

studies seem to never end..it goes on and on and on...Nimhans entrance nearby[this sunday] and frankly i have only a single digit chance of making it....its not abt the preparation or level of competition here [around 10k write for 6 seats] but one thing called LUCK [which i think dont have]...

saw "shes out of my league" movie today...pretty good time-pass one and the character kirk resembles a lot to one my close friends.

every time i eat something out i have a bad stomach upset the next day...dont know whether its my immunity or the unhygienicity of the street food.

not getting psychiatry during feb exam was in deed a blessing in disguise for me....i dont think thats field is for me...[dealing with addicts and depressed souls is so contagious]

should re-pick up the habit of reading good books and playing video games...i so much miss my xbox....when ever i see any top game on the net i just feel am missing something in my life and the first thing am going to do after joining a pg is buy a new set.

'we are what we repeatedly do'-trying to make some changes in my daily routine like getting up early [ie by 8am!;)]..hope it works out well.

p.s-
thats it for now!!...time for a snooze [dont have the habit of snoring in the afternoons]

the way...


The road to success is not straight.
There is a curve called Failure,
A loop called Confusion,
Speed bumps called Friends,
Red lights called Enemies,
Caution lights called Family,
You will have flats called Jobs,
But, if you have a spare called Determination,
An engine called Perseverance,
Insurance called Faith,
A driver called God,
You will make it to a place called Success.

birthday post...

its already june and feels like just yesterday i have finished by internship...this is one part of my medical life which i will cherish forever....those night duties,funny patients,cute babies,free breakies from pgs...miss them all.

6 birthdays coming up in 9 days...5 of my friends[including mine-today]...its only when ur twin wishes for ur birthday u can reply back "wish u the same";)

my daily routine has been going crazy...almost daily i get up late and end up being an insomniac at nights...shd bring it back to my old ones.

is it only me that am finding fb boring these days..its the same old updates/videos....

people always tend to forget 2 things in life-grass is always greener[seems like] on the other side and that in swimming u can control only ur swimming and not how others do it.

p.s-
i really get pissed when people wish for ur birthday on seeing fb,orkut etc...seems like they just wish for the sake of it.

patience really helps..

Over years i have found out[by experience] that what ever situation ur in a little bit more patience at that very moment makes a lot of difference....like when you are constantly getting irritated while studying by others[mom especially] or when confronting an irritated child[due to sickness] and its parents or in obg labour rooms where the ever pouring admission [atleast 25-40 new in a 12 hr shift totaling around 60] makes u loose ur cool and frequently usually end up shouting at them.
At the start of my internship last yr i had made a decision..never frustrate out on an ailing patient's kins,a child's parents[from my personal experience] and on a pregnant lady having labour pains [which is equivalent to an amputated finger].Looking back at it now makes me really contended and happy that atleast somewhere i was right for a moment and treated the people the way they deserve.

p.s-
one of my close friends still regrets for shouting at those innocent pregnant ladies.
i loose my cool when it comes to incompetent nurses and ward boys.

MAD-ras


>1ok people,50 seats[o:],only 4 centres in India=aiims exam...leaving today to MAD-ras....hope i dont end up being just a burnt chicken there...

Tuesday, May 4, 2010

just few updates...[am alive]

with aiims exam nearby [this sunday] i shd be totally into books now which unfortunately am not [regret about this every minute]...sometimes i totally loose motivation [also the opposite] and end up watching movies,browsing etc...[almost 31/2 movies in 4 days]

this summer heat is really making me addicted to ice-creams...almost every alternate day i eat one and luckily havent fallen sick yet.[really miss those lollies which i used to have during my school days]

watched Talladega nights yesterday...with Will Ferrell in it as a driver who grows up becoming a driver.Thoroughly enjoyed it [being his fan] with its silly humor and good storyline.

More i read psychiatry the more i think am having hypochondriasis[especially bipolar disorder]....may be am too much into the subj and some self evaluation.

finally have got all my graduation snaps..totally love them and will always cherish that day.Only regret is that i havent taken any snap together with my best friend [since ukg we are together].We were so involved during that event that neither of us realized wht we were missing.

p.s-

remember this classic song of Baba sehgal "dil dhadake"...totally miss those old rappers [apache indian and jazzy B]

a story..

A young boy travelled far from his home to study under a great teacher. When he met the wise old man, his first question was, 'How long will it take me before I am as wise as you?'
"The response came swiftly, 'Five years.'
"'This is a very long time,' the boy replied. 'How about if I
work twice as hard?'
'"Then it will take ten,' said the master.
'"Ten! That's far too long. How about if I studied all day and
well into the night, every night?'
'"Fifteen years,' said the sage.
"'I don't understand,' replied the boy. 'Every time I promise to
devote more energy to my goal, you tell me that it will take longer.
Why?'
'"The answer is simple. With one eye fixed on the destination,
there is only one left to guide you along the journey'"

its an excerpt from Robin sharma's "The monk who sold his ferrari" book and has always been my favuorite when it comes to philosophy.

legal now..

finally,atlast[and after little bit of luck must say] i got my name registered in my state council..tht means am a legally certified doc who can start practising and moreover people from now on can sue me for my misadventures[pretty scared]!....getting this work done itself was a big pain in the ass....extension,getting the duplicate challan and those stupid office people[our collg is a govn one] who make u go around 100 times to get a sign done.

Studying for long hours[though not consistent] has become a routine now...but i still feel internship was better with just work and little bit of academic thing.

Havent watched a single good movie from a month..quite a record for me....waiting for IM2..planning to see this one in big screen[hope this isnt a pseudo-3D like CotTs].

p.s-

spending 3 hrs[council people made me wait till evening so had no other go] alone[!!] in Mcd yest was just too aweful...now half an hour had to buy something to keep myself and those cleaners busy..[empty table here doesnt show tht i havent eaten anything!]

Gudibande visit..

last week  had been to Gudibande...in A.p..4hrs from here...

p.s-

a new life...


after grad everything has changed..no more duties,getting up early,rounds or any post duty offs....now i can do wht ever i want provided i compromise on my exam preparations....

-have realized studying for hours is not my thing...those who say they can study14-16 hrs/day r either bluffing[after success many] or are the psycho types.

-friends cant be trusted always...many who say r ur friends stab ur back[too much competition u know!] or like those small beatles eat u inside out.luckily i dont have such kinds

-exercise is a good way to destress urself...went for a jog yest and had never felt so good recently...hope i cont it...

-have to get my name reg in karn council[legally]...quite a long procedure:(

-nothing beats HOUSE...still now its a kickass serial with its trademark sarcasm and medical research.

-have been reading abt the CRPF massacre in the newspapers recently...even after seeing so many deaths @ our hosp i still feel bad for those who die for no reason...all around 80 getting blown away together shows how incapable we[India] are and the disrespect we have for lives of soldiers.

p.s-
recently came across an article where the CAT topper says he used to study just 1hr/day//wtf!!..he expects us to believe this bullcrap!?

-finally will be finishing my internship tomo...had 15 days extension in ENT...actually i enjoyed working there..got to meet some interesting people and moreover it always good to work with ur -juniors[who have just started]..the respect u get from them is just overwhelming sometimes:)).........

-after 11 long yrs meeting some of my school[7th std] friends today....really excited and looking forward to it...

-have decided to frame atleast my grad snap...after going through my private pic blog have realized that snaps do matter a lot and really help in reliving ur old life again....

things i miss..

finally with the internship coming to an end [not counting the extension in ENT am doing] i would like to highlight the things which i think i liked and would miss from now on...

1-stipend-this may sound weird but frankly this is the thing i will miss the most..financially it helped and hope from now on i need not work part time till i get into a pg...

2-post duty brkfast-after 24 hrs duty this was the silver lining i was looking forward to each morning[post duty]..nothing more cherishing than a good brky[with coffee] on a post duty morning..will surely miss it [more so since most of the times pgs used to pay for it:P]

3-sisters-will miss those v rare cute sisters whom i worked with and were my good friends....

4-seminar perks-only reason we interns used to attend those boring post lunch seminars was the perk we used to get there-a simple tea/coffee and some snacks [and also a way to escape from ur ward work]

5-free samples-sometimes its tht more than the patients its the medical reps[MRs] who pester u with their products and medicines....we used to get a lot of such samples[most of which i never used] and sometimes even movie tickets!!

finally D day has arrived...finally graduating today....

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

dance,dance,dance...

yesterday we had our class socials [much like pre-graduation party without alcohol].After so many months [almost one yr] i got to meet many of my classmates whom i really missed during my internship.Rather than a simple get together it was more of a pre-graduation farewell party where we gad everything-a formal function,a trip down the memory line in the form of pics and in the end when we all by ourselves we ate,drank,talked[gossiped] and danced together.

Monday, March 8, 2010

jugni hasdi...

watched Oye lucky lucky oye movie yesterday-a simple,so well narrated script with humor of utmost quality and the still photographs used in the movie was something new to bwood[like in Hwood] which suited the script perfectly.Abhay in the role of a charismatic brilliant thief was just perfect[like his Deol cousins].

p.s-
jugni hasdi is the song in the movie [played in the background]...reminds of those good old punjabi disco songs[mika etc]

Sunday, March 7, 2010

finally graduating

"Success is a journey not a destination. The doing is usually more important than the outcome. Not everyone can be Number 1."-
Arthur Robert Ashe, Jr.

from the time i remember all i ever wanted was to get into the medical field.When anyone used to ask my friends wht they wanted to become rather than telling pilot,actor etc [and other fancy things] i used to ans just one thing ie DOCTOR.Now after 1642 of medical schoofinallyl and 365 days of training am finally graduating on 13th of this month!..:).....

Friday, March 5, 2010

will miss it...


way to OPDs[out patient department] inside the hosp....will surely miss them in the coming days:(

success guru[s]..


why so called success gurus [self acclaimed],motivational speakers glorify themselves with others success/work and present themselves as super successful when all they do is just suggest and preach and nothing else?!...

guess its the peoples fault where everyone wants/glorifies success/fame[u can only eat when fed] and lot of loosers [or those who think they r!] who make them look successful.

last few days...

only few more days to go for my internship and am already feeling nostalgic..it seems like just yesterday i started it and now after almost one whole yr its almost over.

am in skin and std now [last one] which is quite cool[no night duties] compared to my previous one..plastic surg has been totally hectic with duties,wards works and ots.This place is called a mini court where almost all cases are MLCs[medico legal cases] with suicidal,homicidal burns cases being admitted round the clock.Moreover with such a high morbidity/mortality[every 2nd person dies] finally u end [atleast me] up loosing interest in the work.

these days hardly i feel like coming online...as said earlier am saturated and really need a good brk from this routine.

after my internship i will be a unemployed graduate.Think its quite tough to digest this fact and shd really plan and prepare for the upcoming pg exams.

Paeds is totally diffn..here u r more of a friend than a doc and children really adore u if u become one[not heroworship and all].They are just so pure and innocent which exactly makes me like them.Best part is that they just obey ur orders when they r told those golden words "chocolate"[often misused also].

p.s-

this is the first time in internship where am really enjoying my work...its just work and fun.

a patient politely requests today "mughe tonic likhkar do syrup nahi"!!
p.s.s-
One more duty coming up tomo...u just see few cases,sleep well[6-8hrs] and go home happily with a day off[HOD thinks we work our ass off during duties]...

as a vet doc...


One obvious similarity between a vet doc and a paediatrician is the patient..both cant talk[except for older ones] and diseases must be cured based on interpretations/histories of the attendars[parents]...and many times obviosly u end up making assumptions or rely on lab findings for the proper diagnosis.


one of the most absurb/annoying thing i have seen in opds r the parents themselves..they just exaggerate symptoms and animatedly describe things where they corelate every possible incident with the childs sickness..i agree tht parents get anxious abt their kins health but by doing so u just end up confusing the doc.

whether its a 10yr old or a 15yr old child[adolescent] parents still[immature ones] demand or syrups..wth!...15 yr old and still make them take syrups[which they hate really]!...plz grow up people!!

yesterday we had an identical twin nabiulla and sayiulla[names changed]...they were so identical that after examining Nulla we found out that in fact it was Sulla who was sick.

"injection dalvado" is the expression which we hear often..even for a simple sneeze/cough they demand[request] for injections and that too for a 2yr old ones...still havent understood whether its their ignorance which make them beahve like this or they just want to exploit the govn.

david vs goliath


CB and 3 idiots row is making a lot of noise in the media these days[rediff comes up with a new masala article every other day] saying CB is betrayed and bollyw people[like always] betrayed a writer artist of his respect/recognition etc....
but one thing is clear-they r legally right but only morally wrong and shd have credited him properly or atleast admit that they have flicked his story from the book[not saying its just 2-5%]...dont know whether he is really hurt[think so] or is just creating all this gimmick for money/fame[which he already has] and moreover unfortunately[for VVChopra] media always suppport a david in war[in india minority rule]...

p.s-

1-my new yr resolutions-eat less,sleep less
2-the DUDE is back...Snoop Dogg "Gangsta Luv" Ft. The Dream
3-joke of the day-A college physics professor was explaining a particularly complicated concept to his class when a pre-med student interrupted him.
"Why do we have to learn this stuff?" one young man blurted out.
"To save lives," the professor responded before continuing the lecture.
A few minutes later the student spoke up again. "So how does physics save lives?"

The professor stared at the student for a long time without saying a word. Finally the professor continued. "Physics saves lives," he said, "because it keeps the idiots out of medical school."
