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 :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…
