Life... astonishes !

Life .. astonishes!
just when you thought that your mundane existence,did not have any scope of the unexpected, life serves a googly ,at full toss ..and you are bowled over..
Fact is so much more interesting than fiction. Fiction is limited by imagination , by thought ,by what we know..
Life is beyond imagination, beyond what we know . Life reminds that there is so much, so much more to know, to experience , to live.
It's as if God is saying -this life.. this is my play ground, my creation, who dares go forth..
In contrast, imagination and thought are our creation, they speak of our dreams and aspirations and flaws. they are inherently human.
Life on the other hand is Godly!


So why this sudden change of heart in a girl who lives in a dream land, who is absorbed in her bown world of make belief?
Ensconced in my limited imagination, Life just seemed too dangerous a game to play. Life with it's unexpected, literally grabbing you by the throat and dragging you into reality!
Maybe , am finally ready to enter the game- roll my dice and see what i score-see where the gameboard of life takes me.

Life inspires awe, inspires fear - and today I feel brave...

birthday retrospect : Lebensmude and other Midlife things

This year will be the 11 th Birthday retrospect;it is a promise I keep to myself, where I write my thoughts on growing a year older. I started writing a birthday retrospect on my 25th birthday and this year being my 35th birthday post. (read last years post  BR 2018 )
This year went by in a blur –and I was happy about it. Earlier, my reaction used to be, “ Oh my God! This week went by so fast, where did the time go?” , but this year I couldn’t wait for the months to roll by. I was in a WHY IS LIFE TAKING SO MUCH TIME TO PASS BY mode . Ah! I can feel that a lot of people reading this are going to be surprised by this. Because I have always been someone plugging my day with many things to do, I was someone who was a ‘go getter’ kind of person, so much to do in life, so much to see in life, the girl with the biggest FOMO or Fear of missing out. This year I had flipped completely to the opposite spectrum. I didn’t want to do anything new. It wasn’t like I was demeaning the act of disco…

The gift

A few days back a close friend of mine received a gift. A large box wrapped in purple gift wrapping, ribbons and all, with a note saying “thank you doctor, from the Martins family” * (name changed to protect privacy)
A sweet gesture which a few patients still followed. A token of gratitude apart from the fees they paid and the medical bills. The medical profession has been subjected to major mud slinging in the past few years and small gestures of gratitude and appreciation mean a lot to us trying to do the best we possibly can.
But this gift was different.
“your patients must really like you.” I said, especially since I knew that many of his patients considered him family, and would get him fruits from their gardens, home made wines or cakes for Christmas, sweets on Diwali.
the patient died. She had terminal cancer, there wasn’t much that I could do. I didn’t want to take the gift, but the family insisted…” he replied
The doctor patient relationship is a tenuous one. The giver and …
