No coffee

Past my bedtime most of the times i make sure that I don't have any beverages. Having it totally ruins the sleep which ends up me being awake on the bed crawling, staring at the walls and go to bathroom umpteen times to clear my bladder(really hate getting up). Today being a pre-christmas night, we went out for a ride at 12 night and had coffee at the 24 hours beach restaurant. It was fun as usual but now am paying the prize. Staring at the walls, getting up, fbing and writing this post at 3am.

P.s-
Merry christmas!

few more weeks to go....

taking 1st calls in final year is really pissing me off. U see shit cases [silly in fact] all day and get calls at midnight from other departments for references etc. Am doing this from past 3 years [almost] and frankly now i don't have the same patience and enthusiasm as i had in my first two years of resident-ship. Luckily this will be my last month of emergency calls and that's it, am done with my M.D here after 2 months of regular attendance. Hopefully i sail through the exams smoothly [2 candidates this time]. After that an year or so of senior residency here may be and will move on to next phase of my life. Phase where job responsibility will be more and personal goals are given more importance.

Lazy sunday...

Lazy weekend....
Got up at 10.
being in final has its own luxury. Less of work(and duties) and hardly they expect you to attend Sunday rounds.
Had a nice cup of coffee now with some good music. Happen to stumble upon tommy and tuppance episodes (YouTube) recently when trying to dig into the poirot episodes online. They are quite engaging and you will love it if u have read the books.
Finishing this will have my brunch, get a small nap and study a little bit.
my good weekend will end here and again tomorrow it will be a new working week with opds to attend and same old seminars and casualty duties.
Hmm....this episode looks interesting and I must finish it. Bye for now.

Happiness is...

Good music (online radio)...
Morning jogging...
Playing with a pup...
Treating a sick patient successfully..
Talking to old people in opd and their weird complaints...
Self cooking...
Coffee with a dear friend...
Demanding gifts from good friends and managing to get them..
Sunday morning road side shopping..

New celebrity on the road...just love him.

Diwali resolution

Eat less, exercise more and to be healthy. That's it.

Belated diwali wishes to everyone....this time I got to spend it with my family(parents and friends).
Thoroughly enjoyed it and was really quite memorable.

Ramblings....

Its been 15 days post my thesis submission and still am not buried in my studies as expected. I come home, relax, watch a movie and hit the bed to get up early next day for jogging. I have been really enjoying my days now. Guess now its time for me to plan up and get busy. No more lazy days, movies and facebooking.
I really think I should start reading some novels/books. Old days of book reading which I really used to enjoy should be brought back (atleast my kindle eBook will be worth its penny).
more watches and pens. My collections are pretty 'awesome' now. May be for the time being am little satisfied and my grabby behavior has lessened a bit (p.s-you are always welcome to gift me tag heurer watch or a waterman pen :D)
planning to spend this diwali with my parents. Both my brothers are staying away  and I feel parents are missing us. Hope to spend a day or two with them and try some crackers this time (who cares about air pollution).
Miss my old friends and foes. hardly get any time for them and these days its just whats upp and Fb chatting which keeps us in touch.

Watchporn...

My watch collection.
Some of the watches am using right now in Pondy(few more in Bangalore). Just love them.
Each of these were either gifted or borrowed from my loved ones. A raft of good memories associated with them which I value a lot.

P.s-
My dream is to go like these to the opd once.wonder what those patients will think of me.

Dasara...

Once again dasara.
That time of the year where marathon Pooja sessions are held at home (ancestral).days when u spend ur holidays at your home town, making merry and having good food with your cousins.
I miss all of them now.
staying in the city doesn't give you all these luxuries. You get only one day holiday and rest of the days you spend working. That festive mood doesn't bite you and we end up spending that day off just like any other holiday.

Smile.

A middle aged lady walks into opd with a smiling face.she greets me warmly, quietly takes her prescription slip and in the end again smiles leaving the opd.
After few minutes I realize scratching my head that this was the same lady whom I had intubated and put on ventilator few days back.timely intervention and right decisions makes a difference to the life.
these are the few instances which really puts a smile on our faces here.

Happy teachers day...

Two teachers who really made an impact in my life  were my high school teachers...MSK(maths) and MMP(Hindi/my class teacher too).
Mmp is still in the same school guiding and teaching with same enthusiasm.
Msk just retired I guess after serving as school principal for a short term.

High school was the period when I really developed my self esteem and I realized my true potential thanks to these great ones.topping my class 10th board exams proved as a catalyst in me.
when I entered 11th I had a sense of self belief and confidence which I successfully carried to my 12th board exams.(topped both state theory and entrance).what ever am today and achieved I owe a part of it to these great teachers.
legends in deed!!

Lost a companion...

I was in final year mbbs(2008) that surprisingly my elder brother gifted me my first mobile..n72.
frankly it was a dream come true for me.n series were a big craze then and I still remember how people used to vouch for these n95 phones like iPhone these days.
Games,songs or taking snaps.I did everything possible with it and I must tell that till date all my cherished moments were captured in this mobile(internship, graduation,).
Today after listening to the news of ms buying Nokia permanently almost broke my heart.the brand I used to associate with will be no more and the company which was once leading in the market will be completely wiped out of the stores.my n72 is still working (and i still love it)and hope it stays that way for few more years to come.

P.s-
This Nokia episode just shows how selfish a generation can be.a company which was once loved was completely betrayed by its loyal fans just because it didn't match the technology and was not given enough time for a comeback.

Change....

If you can't fly, then run. If you can't run, then walk. If you can't walk, then crawl. But whatever you do, keep moving."

-Martin Luther King, Jr.

Just one month to go for thesis submission (took extension) and few more for final year exams(M.D) think I should pore upon my efforts more.
Daily planning is necessary and also little bit of micro planning. Divide each day into micro bits and put up a plan.if your planning is good (and executable) I think half  the work is over.u just now need to follow it with a discipline to achieve your goal.

Just another evening ...

Coffee...

Made it..

Jog..
Slowed down...
Brisk walk..
Jog in between..
Finally made it to finish line.!

Addiction

Old habits die hard.
Initially PC games followed by Xbox console and now mobile games(android mobile).I always manage to get  good new games which keep me engaged and really don't mind spending few bucks for the same.(bought few games from Google play recently).
after all what ever u spend on your happiness is always worth the effort.

Prosperity...

I may not be one of  the richest but at least am rich enough to buy the things I want and thus making be prosperous.
I may not be affordable to eat in the wealthiest hotels but rich enough to have three healthy meals/day.
I don't have a Ferrari but lucky enough to have my own vehicle to travel and thus avoid the nuisance of public transport.
I Am may not have the best looks but I have friends who like me for what I am and stay with me during my bad times...(no fair weather friends plz!!).
Am lucky enough to not have any disease or malformation so that I can peacefully sleep at night without any pain/suffering.
I may not be a famous rock star that people flock around me but am a good enough physician that people greet me often.

I should count my blessings...c the glass as half full not half empty or else just drink it!.

Campus ...

Had a quick walk and a study session in the campus park..quite invigorating!....

Coffee break...

One quick ward rounds over(self).Time for a coffee @ campus canteen..

Somethings...

Sometimes(may be always) something's can't be bought....

Patients love and their blessings.
Unexpectedly a patient improves.
A patients gift(as token of appreciation).
Guessing a rare diagnosis and it turns out to be right.
Unexpected cancelation of seminars.

Raksha bandhan...

This day comes every year and I always miss having an own sister sibling.having being brought up in the circle of male cousins/siblings I have hardly experinced this bondage with anyone apart from my cousins who used to tie the band.as time went on and not being my own siblings  this custom gradually faded away.
Fortunately in the recent few years I have met people who have filled in their shoes and I make sure they get my heart felt wishes every year. (Not to forget my dearest cousin sister staying in Brunei country).

P.s-
so for me I think Raksha bandhan is to be celebrated with my brothers.(any day for such a thing ?)

My philosophy

Its always better to over investigate or treat a patient because under treatment/evaluation may kill the patient.

Is when an almost dead patient comes back alive after three days of rigorous efforts and his family members thank you.

Evening stroll

In campus

My little angel

She is my angel
One who stays in my hearts angle
My sinus rhythm she controls
And limbic system she rules
She is in surgery but
Always at mercy
Warrior in the ward but
Flower she gets as her work reward
Chotus sweetie she is
And his little pie
She is not a Mysore lioness
But for chotu she is his little princess............

A small poem dedicated to my lady...my little angel.

Cruel world...

         Not having tried the famous chaat shop nearby I decided to drop by today after my daily routine....here shops are unlike in bangalore where they sell food and drinks together.
         In this shop the owner sells just two items and his daughter (still in her preteens) accompanies him doing both the preparing and cashier job.watching all this this my enthusiasm just broke down(had already placed my order).this little girl who was supposed to be enjoying her childhood instead is working  here for her living.her father looks helpless and these days with so many rape cases being reported I can only imagine the mental trauma and insecurity he is going through.I did finish my ordered dish and came back with a pensive mood.

Toy shop..

Had been to madras for some personal work.it was just for a day.
stayed at my aunts place and roamed around a bit visiting some nearby maals.dresses or any electronic gadgets never draw my attention but every time when i enter a good pen shop(Williams pen showroom) I get this childish enthusiasm and happiness.I look at them with glowing eyes(and awesomeness) and most of the times end up undecided which ones to buy because of the sheer quality and variety they offer here.having pelikan,parker,lamy and Sheaffer in my collection now but every such visits just makes me realize that I still have much more to go.this always reminds me of my childhood where chocolates and toys used to have the same effect.you grow up and many times forget to enjoy such things in life and I feel that having an hobby always keeps this habit floating.

Philosophy....

Some people are so afraid of losing their individuality. Wouldn't it be better for the pig to lose his pig-individuality if he can become God? Yes. But the poor pig does not think so at the time. Which state is my individuality? When I was a baby sprawling on the floor trying to swallow my thumb? Was that the individuality I should be sorry to lose? Fifty years hence I shall look upon this present state & laugh, just as I now look upon the baby state. Which of these individualities shall I keep?....

Discipline. The thing which keeps you focused and on track..but now days am totally out of it.I go and come to work with out a plan.not scheduling my days like I used to nor have a mindset to plan one.I see its consequence in my work now.can feel the change in the form of little incompetence that has crept in me these days.final year exams,case presentations and thesis to complete. All these and just few more months to end. Time to re think,schedule and prioritize my life and be the person I used to be.

P.s-

Birthday...

When you are very young people around  treat you special on your birthday...parents and cousins (friends) eagerly wait for this day and shower you with all the goodies/blessings...but as u grow up things change and they begin to ignore it and years pass by where your birthday will be just another day where only your close ones care wish you and u start believing the same....things change once u start working(earning)...colleagues/friends relive your childhood celebrations by making you feel special.....
yesterday I turned 27...feeling a bit old...have gained weight and mind is not agile as before...children around don't call me anna anymore and people treat as an adult (no more in the receiving end)....true friends, parents and special ones who really remembered wished me and made me feel like a child I was once...today am  28 and as life moves on I wanna cherish these moments and capture them...

Bike ride...

Yesterday was a free day(actually was on duty...2nd call) so my self with a friend of mine decided to go for a long distance ride..in my discover bike....place is a nearby temple town called mahabalipuram... Its around 99kms from here and its through ecr road(east coast road)...going in ecr is quite risky...traffic,safety and this heat...but after little persuation from my friend we decided to go for it....reached there in two hours...and came back after an hours stay....once we reached i felt that it was worth ride...ride,place and company....like they say its not the destination that matters but the journey.

Amma....

A one year baby to take care of along with a twin siblings...three babies and one amma..that's my mom....be it a house hold work,cooking,home work or being a teacher...she has managed to do it all till now for 26 years in a row!....and that too with great efficiency.you don't need to be well educated to bring up your children in a sound way...being just a bsc graduate and married to a phd student she has showed this....
Even now I very well remember the days when she used to walk miles for our needs,take care of our simple demands inspite of our financial burden,protect us,teach us like a teacher,sacrifice her needs for our well being.
Now that am postgraduate and staying away from home when i look back at my past I realize that only reason I should keep my parents happy and look after them is that they always managed to keep us HAPPY...my childhood was a happy one and I feel that this reason is enough and they deserve the respect and care without any demand or compromise

Happy mothers day (super)amma...:)... Love you...(..)..
