Enough !

For the past week the morning news paper leaves me agitated, filled with disbelief.. making me ask..'is this man for real??' This Varun Gandhi, this upholder of God knows what , this man who stands for every thing which is wrong with Indian politics. Everything! His claim to fame is that he is the son of politicians , which automatically makes him part of the 'Parivar' , his slanderous statements made to instigate religious conflict so typical of Indian politics. This man doesn't seem to have a heart, and neither a brain, which makes me ask is he for real? I mean i understand if he is doing all this for vote bank politics, because then if people are foolish enough to vote for him then they deserve the fate. God forsake, if he actually believes what he says then this man is dangerous to the society and needs to be institutionalised, get his head checked, consult a psychiatrist , because psychopath turned politician may make a sensational headlines but spells doom for a teetering ,fragile India. For days now I had been reading his antics , and was mildly amused , or put it down to a mildly exasperated ' these politicians!' , but enough is enough.
This vandalism goes on bacause we let them, if Mr Varun Gandhi feels that he can get away with it then I think it is our duty to show him otherwise. The only language they understand is vote banks and that is the language they need to be spoken to, hate mail stating that the moderate and rational Indian, every rational Indian will vote against him and for any group that supports him.
I resent Varun Gandhi , for making a mockery of politics, a mockery of the democracy.
I resent Varun Gandhi , for slurrying the honest name of 'hindutva' and twisting the meaning of religion to suit his needs.
I resent Varun Gandhi , for slurrying the name of the youth of India, at 29 he commits the same crime of his predecessors.
I resent Varun Gandhi, for making me fear for the future of this country.
I resent Varun Gandhi, for making me feel helpless at the wreckage he plans. For the tears of frustration i shed today morning, for the anger that I felt yesterday , I resent him for making me fling the morning newspaper in disgust.
I realise that the war is not between people of different religions, but the war is between the radical religious fanatics and the nonfanatics.In these troubled times i feel that we moderates, we non fanatics are the minority , but the time has come to make ourselves be heard , make our vote count, to out vote these fanatics! Be afraid Mr Varun Gandhi , be very very afraid.

a friend of mine, who's in the advertising business says that what ppl like varun practise falls in line with whats known as 'communal marketing'..

in order to achieve the most favourable outcome, varun's strategy team must have advised him to go ahead and target the hindu population..by putting down the other religions apparently..

i just cant believe that somebody like him, who claims to be a so-called protector of ppl, underestimates our intelligence so grossly that he picks that line for selling himself..its disgusting..

where have all the toppers gone?

Its result time once more , and the news papers are full of proud toppers and their even more proud parents. Pictures of beaming kids surrounded by their proud parents, aunties uncles and muhalla walas. Each picture comes with its own tale of tireless strife and grim determination. ‘I studied long hours’ ‘I missed out on all the movies’ ‘I didn’t see any IPL matches’ ‘I left home at 4 in the morning for coaching classes’. I went to OPD this morning and while waiting for the first patient, I glanced at the head line ‘Science topper wants to be doctor.’ I smiled. The sisters and working staff inquired why I was smiling, but I just said “nothing.” A few doctor friends asked why I was smiling, and I said ,” the topper wants to be a doctor.” We all smiled, some smirked, some grunted and some out right guffawed. It’s an inside joke. Its been exactly 10 years since I passed my twelvth standard exam, and I wonder what the ‘topper’ will feel after te

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 tenuo

HOUSE M.D. the indian M.O.

I am such a fanatic fan of House M.D. the weeekly telly serial, that I have withdrawal symptoms if I don't get to see it. His flamboyant, irreverent, brash mannerisms which disguise a sensitive man who plays the piano, strums a guitar, rides a Bike, misses his ex wife, and suffers with his limp.. alone with his Vicodin.. sigh...before I start drooling. What I realised is that we as Indian doctors have a lot in common with the genius doctor. We diagnose patients sometimes by starting treatment 'empirically' and that happens a lot of times among AMO's and medical officers in the PHC's and other primary health care setup's.. sometimes this' empirical' form of treating takes place in teaching hospitals too.. because either the diagnostic test is not available, or the the test is too expensive and the patient can't afford it. So we say ' lets start treatment and , then if it doesn't work start something else.. relying on our clinical
