a hole new world....

i remember the time , i was contemplating buying a littmann stethoscope... and was totally dissuaded since , i have a tendency of losing things...
over the years i have lost more things than i ever hope to find...
a litmann costs around 2000 ..and that is too much of a responsibility , my friends and parents said.
well.as luck, or should i say destiny would have it.. i am now the proud owner of a heine beta 200 ophthalmoscope..and it costs{hold your breath} 13000 rupees!!! the sheer responsibilty ! the over whelming need to always be aware of it, taking care of it.... as a frind put it, you now have a baby and you must cradle your ophthalmoscope close to your heart..!
an ophthalmoscope is used to view the inside of the eye..the posterior chamber as we call it..
the optic disc and blood vessels... it's like a whole new world inside the eye..
this is one of the only place in the body where we can actually visualise the blood vessels and their status. and because of this reason , an ophthalmologist is referred patients from all the other depts of medicine.
A sophisticated machine, whose optics , and mechanism i have yet to understand has become an important part of my being..like i have grown a new organ . sprouted a new limb!!needless to say, i am over joyed .. at being able to see , a hole new world.

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…
