it's been a gastronomic week..or has been weeks ..i have forgotten in my gluttonous state...
since the exams,namely my pre post graduate exams got over,life has been delicious.
1: first i went to this place called shalimar situated in the heart of th emughlai land of mumbai,jj area. noted for it's super quick service and value for money, it's a great place for hard core non vegetarians.we had hungama chicken for starters , a sizzling starterof a platter full of kababs.the malai kulfi falooda was yummy too.but i have had better biryani... ambiencewas so so..but when you r digging into tender pieces of meat and gorging on butter naan...the lights an fans dont really matter.

2:the lunch buffet at monza...diametrically opposite of shalimar.here the ambience is tops. the place classy,the decor spartan,even the soup is mild. but what a soup.a vegetarian soup,cream of something...and each one of us had seconds!the live counter had a choice of pastas . there were some unimaginative salads . the desserts too were unimaginative,chocolate brownie,chocolate mousse and vanilla icecream..could have done better for a continental spread but i am partial to chocolate so pardonable..
monza is in high street phoenix,lower parel.

3:rajasthani thali at place called rajdhani.. the ambience was mostly bacause of the friendly waiters and the hospitality which is so famous amongst the atithi devo bhava indians... again a place which was pure veg and yet ...we gorged.

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…
