What colour is your world?

I was reading about a medical condition where people are colour blind. and then there is a condition where people see the whole world in a single colour.. shades of a colour actually.. most comonly blue..
And it got me thinking.. if I were to see the world in just one colour what would it be..
Now mind you this isn't the same thing as , 'what is your favourite colour?' since my favourite colour is red ,but I wouldn't want to see the world in red. It would be gory.
Maybe shades of brown? Like living in a sepia toned world.. an old world movie.. or seeing the world through Raybans?
Maybe pink..a rose tinted world..
or yellow ..to give a sunny outlook..
greys and blacks are out ..too passe..
orange and lavender are too OTT..
hmm i am yet to decide..
Till then i live in my technicolour dreams..

if i can see just one colour, then maybe i'd pick a colour which wud allow me to see shadow and light in all kinds of different permutations and combinations, i guess..
oh and i changed the name! :) i like how we associate colours with emotions na? green is jealous, blue is miserable, black is angry and so on.

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 …
