1-it was fun to see people on 3D glasses[i wore it on my power glasses!!]...looked like an epidemic blindness..lol:D
2-2.5k is the fine those money grubbing spirits r charging for these 3rd rate glasses[in case of damage] and damn sure tht they would have managed to get some scapegoats too..
3-iron man2 coming up...trailer is out...check it out..

people involved-ortho pgs,patients and ward boy
in ortho its a common thing to get fracture cases during night duties and in most of the cases to stabilize[and also to decrease pain] pops[plaster of paris] are put as a initial emergency medical aid and further managed depending on the patient[finance]/docs.
a patient with obvious fracture comes to the emergency and one of my pg after initial routine[history,doing MLC and xrays] decides to put pop and tells[request-u cant order these self important jerks!] one of the ward boys to put the pop...after everything [putting cast] the ward order plainly demands money[pretty hefty] from the patient telling the dr himself has asked for it[pure exploitation].
After a few days some how this pg comes to know abt this[from the patient themselves] and so from then on in a heroic way[he was in 1st yr then] decides to put all the casts himself[in order to save their money]...satisfied/with pride[after putting some] at last walks into the duty room and narrates[to his senior pg] all this...senior pg then calmly replies "now tht u have personally gone to put pop ward boy would charge double the amount saying he has personally called u for the work"
that was the last time he put the cast himself in his life....
those who think all govn docs r corrupt r wrong....

this day that year...16th dec 2007 was when i started blogging and have been happily continuing doing so till today...best part about this is that its a hobby which i like doing and coz of this have been able to connect with some really wonderful people[and writers] whom i didnt even know and cared to spend their time reading my blog and pen down their opinion.
A big thank u for all those who made me to continue this till today[with their feedbacks and comments] and also those who care to read it [and dont comment].
as they say "a writer is, after all, only half his book. The other half is the reader and from the reader the writer learns"-feedbacks/-ve and +ve suggestions are most welcome..and request each and every reader to do so:)

have u ever been to a fish market?[non vegs]
i have never been to one[am a egg eating veggie] but guess it will be somewhat similar to the ops in our departments on mondays...lots of people[with all sorts of complaints] shouting and running here and there and we like vendors trying to convince[or somehow escape] them somehow.This is so coz all the weekend cases would have been accumulated[unless its an emergency] and they on monday would just drop in into opds[even more so in ophthal since emergency cases r too less] causing the mad rush.
Luckily for interns work is to just do LS and measure iop using tonometry

Pocket mein rocket hai
Pocket mein rocket hai
Beta halke halke, udna sambhal k.......
just love this song from the movie rocket singh-salesman of the year and have already arranged the tickets for tdays evening show...
hope its not a cheap copy of employee of the month movie
ophthalmology is not bad as i had expected it to be...an autonomous single institute[one among very few in south india] just for just an 6-7gm organ....marvelous indeed!!
Saturday, December 5, 2009
Never enjoyed ortho and wont be taking it as my pg.
watched Boondock saints-very stylishly filmed movie with good storyline...do watch it if u r a fan of such movies[like man on fire,usual suspects]
today had been my last OT[major postings] and was feeling all nostalgic...if i dont take a surgical field it will be last time ever i will wear a OT dress....
my personal[private] picture blog is now 165 posts old and it feels so good to see my yr old snaps....
She-wolverine-snap taken by my co-intern after a k-wire fixation to a lady...

"please sir just few prescriptions of these[/day]"...this is what i have been hearing from MRs[medical reps] in opds who visit regularly [whole week] and bombard the innocent docs[interns] sitting there with loads of new meds[trade names of same old drugs] and rarely sometimes with free samples...sometimes i find more MRs than the patients in the department wandering here and there with their bags and targeting/torturing every pg/intern they come across.More often it has so happened that its difficult to decide whether to talk to them or to the patients who keep pestering us with their year[like one patient who has a pain problem from 15 years but has never bothered to show it to any doc] old problems.
on the brighter side they r few advantages as well-free meds,pens[which i never use] and get to learn quite a few funky cool trade names[atleast it impresses the patient!] of the drugs.
1-those of u who think am a sadist and experiment on patients like guinea pigs r mistaken...we write[most of the times] only those drugs which r safe and dont have any untoward rxns.
2-ortho is such a dull field-just xrays/pulling,pushing/mending bones....
3-had been to my native yest-@ seaside[west coast]
Sunday, November 22, 2009
after 2 weeks of ortho i have-
put just 3 slabs[pops]
assisted in another 3-5
written about 50-80 painkillers[bread and butter of ortho]
in OTs have done practically nothing except for some pion and paper works...
in short-life in ortho sucks[compared to obg] with too many duties/ots....
1-finally had been to 2012..quite a nice movie though 1st half was little boring..
2-MRs[medical representatives] come to every opd and give us a list of latest drugs in the market[coax us!] which we experiment on the patients...write the same drug for few of the patients and in case u get bored[or until u memorize it properly] jump to another one..lol..and its quite fun!!;)
3-studies have gone gone for a toss...hardly i study these days...:(...may be coz of lack of motivation plus too many duties...
Monday, November 16, 2009
no more free days[atleast for the next few weeks] where i can just ideally in opds and while away my precious time...its time for some broken bones,nut.bolt,pops and muscle flexion[to pull,push etc!]
from tomo actual ortho begins...had physiotherapy till now...
2 night duties in 4 days:( and moreover this rain has so much increased the incidence of rtas making our life miserable!![every 3rd accident case coming to casualty]
saw boondock saints movie...one cool action movie
Thursday, November 12, 2009
Tuesday, November 10, 2009
even the cases i come across are so monotonous...either fracture/rta[rd traffic accident] or some chronic pain case...and now itself i have realised this subj is not my cup of tea[as pg] and hoping to finish it as soon as possible and move on with my other postings.
1-a thief when caught red handed and tried to escape fell from a roof top and unfortunately landed up in our department[me on duty] yesterday with 3 broken bones.!!
2-i really miss those cute babies[and babes] in obg!!:(
3-thanks Saranya for the award!:))

saw LONDON DREAMS movie...overall was a pretty good movie..but as some of them said think needs some reality check [do we need that?]...just learn to enjoy the movie as it is and leave behind the logic/reality check[which most of them dont]!!
doing surgery mcqs for entrance and am totally loving it...loving the logic behind answering some of the qns and the way it improves ur overall clinical knowledge:)...my only regret is that i didnt do this during my surg postings[internship]:(
is anyone really interested in wht u eat/see/drink??...frankly i dont enjoy twittering anymore....that way fb rocks...atleast can put some pics/chat/have fun;)
getting to see some pretty good nurses around wards these days....actually its fun talking to some them[;)] and appr the dedication they show unlike some stupid,overgrown useless senior sisters[totally hate them to core]
anyone seen the movie MOON?

When i was in school and playing cricket i was a terrible fielder and known for throwing easy catches away..i still remember my bros[especially my twin] shouting their ass off @ me for leaving those silly catches...guess tht trait has continued till today....
on sat while on duty had to conduct one delivery[due to some peculiar reason] and when was all ready to catch it[baby] and fraction of a sec after she delivered i find my hands totally empty...baby had just slipped and fallen into the bucket...[umbilical cord had prevented it from falling off completely]
luckily baby was fine and nothing unexpected happened...:)

Friday, October 9, 2009
when told many among relatives were unable to digest the fact that i had conducted so many deliveries...they just think i have just assisted[which i havent]/witnessed or may be bluffing abt the whole thing...lol....on the other side there r quite few ones who get really surprised and keep asking me how i did/do that etc....[:D]....
Wednesday, October 7, 2009

rode my new[actually my bro's] cycle trek3700 today....could covered just 14kms in 1hr 20mins....this is the first time am riding a geared mountain bike and think its pretty cool
moral of the story-
1-bang traffic sucks really
2-never ever listen to ur mom regarding directions
3-my stamina is too poor...
15 days of day duty[labour] coming up from sund....am already sweating!!:(
Wednesday, September 23, 2009
1-a just born asphyxiated baby surviving after almost 10 minutes of nonstop cpr[by myself and a paediatrician]+adrenaline trail....we had almost decided to declare it dead to the party concerned...after successfull resuscitation it was shifted to nicu immediately.[but our concern was the amount of brain damage baby would have suffered due to the episode]
2-a lady delivering a "healthy" baby instead of urinating in bathroom...
3-an anaemic mother surviving the delivery and coming out of it as healthy as any mother....
4-me not delivering a single baby yestersay in 24 hours
god is indeed sending his much needed blessings upon the needy!;)

i feel overwelmed and indeed very happy when i-
-see the baby's head suddenly popping out of the mothers womb[oops!] and rotates[called restitution]
-for the first time hold the baby in my hands and direct it towards the mother lying there exhausted[really appr them for this kind of hardship they undergo]....
-take the baby for suctioning and on putting the tube inside its tiny nose it Sneezes[atchoo!!]
just check this out...a womans quest for 100 kisses in paris....wth!

i have delivered[independently] 3 babies[statistically quite less compared to my other cointerns]
assisted for about another 3!!...
still amazed[and surprised] with the way i conducted my first one...just some moves here and there and within a few secs i had a healthy female child crying in my gloved hands[for which the mother gratefully thanked me!!:)]
Friday, September 11, 2009
1-yesterday as soon i entered the room i saw many preg ladies lying on the bed ready to be delivered...it was such a weird feeling...didnt know wht to say or do..i just had to like a zombie roam around a bit for some company[other cointerns:P]
2-from drugs to equipments used seemed new as if i had read this subj long back...guess i have to do my home work properly...!:(
3-2 days brk now...next duty is on sunday!!...
4-the best part is that sisters do most of the work here[unlike in med,surgery] and we just have to sit back and order them/impress them[?]!!..;)
Tuesday, September 8, 2009

any 3rd rate private hosp[also corporates]/doctor thinks our hosp is a dumping place of patients and send any complicated case to us for the management inspite of knowing ours a govn setup and except for basic facilities[which itself is in acute shortage] have nothing else...truth is everyone just wants to wash their dirty butt and come clean...!!
a patient's attender comes at night to us[from emergency wards] at around 1am and tells us that some private doc had told him that as soon as he comes here the patient will get operated and was questioning us why it hasnt been done so...as if we r some vultures and as soon as the patient enters we pounce on him and take him to ot...wtF!!...

This year i finally made it to the flag hoisting ceremony at our college campus...this was my first time there[and the last] and after going there i realised that am doing it[singing my national anthem and witnessing a flag hoisiting] after 8 long years[last being when i was in 9th] which made me very nostalgic and in fact little patriotic!!...
1-have taken the snaps which am putting in my private picture blog.
2-everytime i come across our nat anthem i make it a point to standup[atleast try]..how many of u guys indeed do this??

after much hype by the media this swine flu has really got on peoples nerves...inside our hosp campus these days i see every other person wearing a mask be it a chaprasi,ward boy or the docs who pass through the opds...think i shd get one too for myself tomo[going with the trend]....
Tuesday, August 11, 2009
after 2 back to back duties and no bath inbetween[with plenty of axe] am stinking like an animal...no wonder that the street dog near my house didnt even dare to come near me today.
p.s-1-this time i preferred sleeping during my break in the mornings instead of taking bath!....
2-these days every tom,dick and harry from abroad who gets a cold[or flu symptoms] demands a h1n1 testing to be done and as a result the swine flu ward[in our setup] has become a market like place with long Qs for throat swab cultures....[god i really curse these media people!!]

A 24 year old man comes to opd and says that he has an wound on his right index finger and needs our immediate attention....when i further enquired about it he said with some hesitation "i was bitten by my 23 yr old friend".Such cases[any bite] usually needs to be done MLC[medicolegal case]here and when i told him about his situation he just disappeared from there and never came back.

recognition in their eyes. One said to the other, "Now wait a
minute, don't tell me, I know I know you, but I'm not sure of
where we met. Let me see if I can think of your name. I've got
it! We met in Miami Beach two years ago."
"No, I've never been to Miami Beach."
"Hold it, don't tell me—oh, yes, it was on the boardwalk
of Atlantic City that we met."
"Sorry, I've never visited Atlantic City."
"I've got it now! Chicago in 1953!"
"Nope, I was not in Chicago in 1953."
"Well, I know we've met, where do I know you from?"
"Idiot! I'm your brother!!"

out of 7 tries in giving spinal anaes i succeeded only in 3.way to emergency OT[hell to interns at night]
Wednesday, July 22, 2009
Bunked anesthesia today...really hate it...may be that am[interns] are not getting to learn anything productive and all we do in that OT is monitor the patients[which any layman can do] or just stand there looking at paralyzed patients.Just 2 more days to go and then have surgery.
Watched King kong movie...really a jawbreaker movie with good story,terrific graphics.Best part was the last scene where Jack black just comments "Oh no, it wasn't the airplanes. It was beauty killed the beast."!!
have been listening to this song recently and i just love it..one of the few songs whose lyrics i really liked...laree choote from '140 ki last local" movie

Frost Nixon-A dramatic retelling of the post-Watergate television interviews between British talk-show host David Frost and former president Richard Nixon.
Simply loved it for its compelling storyline,great acting and for some fine direction[was selected as one of the best 10 movies of 2008 by AFI].....while watching it felt like am seeing an action movie.
I rated it 9/10 in imdb which it truly deserves.
Friday, July 17, 2009
Thursday, July 16, 2009
We interns do get chances [for giving spinal etc] and exposure wise its really good but frankly i feel this field is not for me where the work is just mechanical[like monitoring patients,push iv inj] and is wholly dependent on the surgeons with whom u have to work with.Moreover i enjoy talking to people and want to get into a clinical side where the interaction with people is more personal and satisfactory[though radiology is still an option wide open;)].
So now i have atleast one option less for my pg!!...
thank u vyazz for the award..will be writing abt it in my next post:)
Monday, July 13, 2009
i absolutely agree with this quote and even follow it so some extent[not possible always]...when ever bored or down or uninterested this little thing really lifts me up and lets me enjoy wht i do...its just another way of seeing a glass half full instead of half empty.Some may think its just another quote by a philosopher but to really know it just try it out once and feel the difference...
p.s-down with ge[gastroenteritis-loose stools]..hope i may make it for night duty tonight
Friday, July 10, 2009
