simply...LIVE!

living life in similies and metaphors,
living a life written in verse and prose,
the complexities and complications,
of a complex sentence compounded.

when u've lived your life,
and wait for the final call...

u will not say,

"my life was like a kite,blowing in the wind,buffetted by the gust,flying among the clouds."

nor r u going to say..

"my life a flowingriver,gushed and frothed over the rocks,to finally meet my destiny, in the salty seas."

Nah! when u r lying in your death bed,similies and metaphors are not going to be upper most on your mind.
the 'end' brings a clarity of thought ,a sudden enlightenment,
that life is not a complex sentence,
sometimes it can be a compound sentence,
but mostly life is a simple sentence.

and at the 'end' u will be wanting to say-
'i lived'. "i lived well"

Hey Kuheli..dont call life a sentence yaar!!..n wat brings clarity of thought is the 'beginning' n not the 'end' (atleast it shud be not too close to the end if one wants to claim to have 'lived' life, if u know wat i mean)..

that is the irony...unfortunately the clarity comes too late..we get bogged down by the small things and forget to see the big picture..
we r so bothered abt the commas and full stops and the verb and adjective that the meaning sometimes is lost amongst the vocabulary...
if u know what i mean..

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…
