life is a buffet...

Last week we were celebrating mom's birthday and went to the Taj lunch buffet..
our family is a family is a family of foodies..and i am quite proud of my eating skills..
a good buffet spread is the ultimate treat..
soo
We reached Taj at 2;30 and as we took our place we were informed that the buffet is going to be for only another 30 min!!!! only till 3 pm !!
I went into panic nood..
sooo much food so lil time..
prawn cocktail,oyesters,crab meat on cucumber,10 types of cheese,20 types of cold meat..dimsums ,momos,mutton ribs,roast chicken,pizza,pasta,soup..
and another assorted table of main coarse which i never had time to see..
then there was the main attraction ..the dessert table..30 ,no kidding..30 or so types of cakes,mousse,scones..!!!
but so little time..
i went on the attack and kept filling plate after plate of food ...
fill fill fill..run keep..
what happened in the end was that i was too nervous to enjoy the buffet and had not done justice to all that i had taken..


my brothers opinion:this just proves that u cant work under pressure,he said smuggly.
my dad was deeply involved in getting the food on video,and thoroughly enjpying the freely flowing champagne..his advice-have a glass of wine..
mom very wisely told me-bui enjoy what u have already taken,just because there is soo much variety of food does not mean that u r expected to have all of it..a buffet offers u a wide variety,but u have to pick and choose..and enjoy yourself.


Later as i sat and analysed the lunch[i analyse everything in life] i thought:
life is a buffet ..with a much wider variety than even the taj buffet,the idea is not to be bogged down by it all
so many different proffesions,so many college courses,so many suitors,so many movies,so much studies..and this just the starters..i haven't even reached the main course..
and there is so little time...
life is all about the choices u make..
the choices u make ,will be important..
but the most important thing is to...
ENJOY EVERY MINUTE IF THIS BUFFET CALLED LIFE.

Birthday retrospect :Live a little before you settle down

Birthday Retrospect : 2018 , Live a little before you settle down. Before we married , my husband and I had a deal, not exactly a contractual agreement, but a sort of shared life motto so to say; of experiencing destinations and travelling widely, and working hard but enjoying the fruits of our labour , and to “LIVE “ a little before “SETTLING DOWN”. How many of you have heard these lines ‘to live a little before settling down’? I am guessing a lot of you, especially in India we tend to say this a lot. Sometimes we say it to our parents, sometimes to our friends. We don’t want to commit to a relationship – because we want to explore all the possibilities and the probabilities of finding true romance before the fire is doused by ‘settling down ‘ in marriage. We don’t want to commit to a profession or a job, because we want to dabble in a number of things before we finally ‘settle down ‘to the mundane-ness of a 9-5. Basically once you commit to something, the living part is lost. Livi…

7 things I wish I could tell my medical student self, 15 years ago

Two things happened this morning , one was the NEET (the national entrance exam of medicine) results in the Newspaper, and the second ,a discussion on our college whatsapp group that today was infact 15 years to the day we attended our first lecture as Medical students. The jubiliation of the students and parents of today as they embark on a new journey in medicine, and my own journey of the past 15 years ; the connection was like a resonance that my writing muse could not deny. What would I tell the medical student , that was me, from 15 years back? What secrets of the trade, what insider scoop could I share which would have made my journey a little less daunting, a little more fun, and may be even more satisfying? Here are my thoughts in no particular order, except as they enter my head.
1.You made it! : I think the first thing I would like my younger self to do is to celebrate , and not doubt myself. I had won. I was in. the door had closed (atleast to the medical college of choi…
