“When I decided to fall in love for the first time, people said love was tough. But I decided not to believe them; somehow you seemed to make it easier.

When we fought for the first time, people said love ended in tears. I chose to deny that; you had just planted a big smile on my face and there was no way you would turn it into tears.

When you broke my trust for the first time, people said love ended in heartbreaks. Mine won’t: I was sure. That was just a folly and you won’t repeat it.

When you picked others over me, people said love doesn’t revolve around chances. I didn’t pay any heed. You said I was your world and how could one not chose his world over others?

And the when we drifted apart, people said it was the end. Somehow, I still couldn’t believe them. You had just said “I love you” and it kept echoing in my ears…until you decided to let me go.”

I wished for the raindrops

To fall on my face

Drench my eyes

And cover up my tears.

 

For it all felt the same

The night we were

That clouded night

When the sky wasn’t starry.

 

And we both awaited

The music to our dance

With puddles beneath us,

We twirled,

Sashaying ourselves

With the rain that fell.

 

Now as I smell the earth,

Watch the sky lighten with thunder,

All I can think of is you

And the promises that weren’t true.

“Dear Girls,

The truth is, you are not enough. You are not the most beautiful girl around, you are not the smartest scholar, you are not the coolest chick around, you are not the sweetest lark around and most importantly, you cannot always satisfy everyone. Even for the ones who claim to love you, there will be some void that you won’t fill. So, that’s the story.

So what now? Frankly, beat it. Just fucking beat it. No matter what you do, there will be some flaw or the other. They might assume you to be selfish, label you as greedy; but you know who you are. And if they are high ambitious and not persuaded with you, let them live their lives and chase whoever the hell perfectionist they wished to be with. You don’t need to chase them around. You don’t have to prove yourself always. You are who you are, unique and precious. So just be the girl you are and someone with eyes who can appreciate the real you will come around.”

You might have seen doctors. You might have admired them too. With the glamorous portrayal of doctors be it in the silver screen or the TV screens, we have at times even considered them to be popular, well-dressed nerds. And now with the frequent visuals in news headlines: be it an attack or negligence or a new law being passed-“doctors” now have the potency of soon being the heated topic of discussion. 

July 1st is one such day in which doctors are indeed the heated topic for that day. It is celebrated as the National Doctors Day: a day dedicated to recognize the contributions and services of the physicians to the society. This is a day in which the health organizations and workers thank the doctors for their dauntless facilities. From a simple stitch to performing day long surgeries to helping in the medico-legal aspects, they come with an array of services to humankind. 

The first Doctors’ Day observance was March 30th, 1933, in Winder, Georgia. This first observance included the mailing of cards to the physician s and their wives, placing flowers at the graves of deceased doctors and formal dinner at the home of Dr and Mrs William T. Randolph. The United States still celebrate this day as the Doctor’s Day and is declared a National Holiday there. 

In India, it is celebrated to honour the legendary physician and the second Chief Minister of West Bengal, Bharat Ratna, Dr Bidhan Chandra Roy. Other countries like Brazil, Cuba, Iran, Vietnam and our neighbouring country, Nepal also celebrate National Doctors’ Day on varying dates. 

 While most of us consider them to be just money-makers in the name of humanity, many of us still uphold our believe in them- it is that believe which has been running through centuries-  the very fact that be it a king or a laymen, when in ailment, it is a doctor who will heal you through. It is only when we look into the innards that we see the cumbersome journey one has to go through to don the white coat and sling a stethoscope over his shoulder. From his first day in Med-school to the day he graduates, every passing day is a day to toil. Along with the classes comes an exposure to a wide range of microorganisms, carcinogens and other health hazards in that process. 

And even though it is a tough job going through all the struggles as a medico, it isn’t all bad. Medical science besides teaching us about the marvellous human body also teaches us other important values like punctuality, patience, perseverance and sacrifices. It also tutors us on dealings with people no matter how ill-tempered they are. And of course, it is high time they start teaching self defence too! Every day as a medico demands our time and focus. 

“Medicine is a science of uncertainty and an art of probability”- rightly said William Osler. This metaphorically translates to: you cannot blame every bad that happened on the doctor. With the increasing attacks on the Doctors, this quote has gained relevance in our general public. Not every doctor knows the genetic machinery of his patients. Not everyone can predict a sure shot consequence of the treatment. What the doctors know is a possibility. 

       Doctors’ life is not an easy one. It is not like the sensational ones that they show in soaps and movies. Especially when he has to juggle his life and his patient’s at the same time. It is more of a vicious cycle of frustrations, anxiety and commotion. But as this Doctors Day approaches, let us change our mindsets about the life savers dressed in white and learn to pay them the respect they deserve.

Musings : #7

Karma is just the past haunting us in the present. And that past could be last  life, last decade, last year last month or just yesterday…

On the occasion of Mother’s Day …

She bore my weight 

Carried me through 

Nurtured me 

Like petals for Bud. 
For every struggle I went through 

Every stumble I faced,

She stood by me, never complaining. 

Even my angst she would bear. 

And that pretty Iris 

Who cried joy when I uttered,

“Mother”

That divine lady she is.

Valentine-Heart-17-1

Love makes us vulnerable…yes, you read it right. Even though texts say the opposite, but with sound mind and whole heart I say, love makes us vulnerable. It makes us vulnerable enough to search for happiness in him; to get jealous when we see him enjoying without us; to make every waking moment about him, and only him. It makes us vulnerable enough to get insecure by people who you know are far less than your approach; elude sleep just coz you noticed a slight change in his behaviour. And the worst of all, it makes us vulnerable to such an extent that the thought of him leaving us, throwing us out of his life sends chills down our spines. And if that is to say, then what is it that keeps love going and defining its strength…

…It is the promises made, and the many words said and actions committed to held high one’s promise; it is the million fights fought and reconciliations made that keeps it fresh and it is the trust that gives its strength.
