mommy mood swings turns one

It is one year to my "birth-day" and snippets of the year gone by are buzzing in my head like bees in a bonnet. the moods are in swing too; nostalgia, funny times, magical moments, and just general gratitude for the year that was.

a few random thoughts that I have right now;

Masterchef Australia: In the last few weeks of pregnancy, Masterchef Australia season 7 was what kept my evenings occupied , it was showing on star world Premier at the time. and on the night of the grand finale I had to check into the hospital, now even though it was a very nice hospital, with almost all channels, since star world premier was a channel one had to specially subscribe to, it wasn't available in my hospital room. that evening while they checked for the fetal movements, little shreyu was kicking away too fast for the nurses comfort, she wanted to recheck the movements in an hour, what I did tell her is that he moved this fast every night, what I didn't tell her was that the food and the cooking on television might have been the reason. Next morning my brother called, and the first question I asked him was who won? and he said "Billy and it was epic!" a year down the line, as little shreyu sleeps, I see Masterchef season 8 on my hotstar app from the comfort of my bed, right next to him, and with my earphones. no television sets required, not even the lights in the room. Things are the same and yet so different.

The boy: For my baby shower on the 3 of May 2015, i bought two foil balloons online, a blue baby boy shaped balloon and a baby girl shaped balloon. since we didn't know if it was a boy or a girl. months later when Shreyu was born on 5 August 2015 , my inlaws said that even though the girl shaped balloon had deflated, the baby boy balloon was still the same! Over time they tried to deflate the balloon , but somehow it would not deflate. Now it has been more than a year, and exactly a year since my baby boy has been born, and we still have 'the boy' balloon just the same, without ever having filled air in it! to be honest, now I am getting superstitious about it; it's like a horcrux from Harry Potter, or maybe the balloon and Shreysht have a past life connection.



There are so many more floating thoughts, which I will pen down subsequently.. but right now I have balloons to blow, and cakes to bake, and streamers toput before I sleep.

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…

New year resolution , investing in myself

As the year draws to a close , I found myself asking , should I make new year resolutions , or am I too old for them? Are resolutions for the young and hopeful?
If twenties were about self discovery , then the thirties surely are about ‘ghar grihasti’, the home and the family. But then, rather than letting the winds of time buffet me on my journey, would it not be nice to have a road map, a compass to which way my thirties are headed?
With these thoughts in mind I decided to design my new year resolutions this year, not for a year, not for a few months, but as long time goals.
I got the idea from my financial advisor actually. This year has been a year of monetary upheaval, for the country at large, with demonetization and such. For me personally, it has been a year, when I started work after a year long sabbatical, without the safety net of a job to go back to, I started a-new as a self employed doctor/surgeon.
The worries and woes that, that entailed is for another time, but what I le…

Birthday retrospect : potential energy versus Kinetic energy

A few weeks back I tried to enrol my name for a Leadership program which was looking for ‘people with potential leadership qualities’, when my application was rejected. Turns out I was too old for being a leader; they had a cut off age of 31. But on further retrospection, I realised , they weren’t saying I was too old to become a leader, but were saying that If I had the ‘potential’, then at my ripe old age of 33 I should be well on my way of becoming a leader. And on that note begins my this year’s birthday retrospect. I would like to call it my ‘pre mid life crisis ‘ birthday retrospect. It was triggered by the word ‘potential’. It took me back to my high school physics; potential energy and Kinetic energy. Potential energy is the energy that is stored within, it can be  a ball held at a height above the ground, or an object being pulled on an elastic string like an arrow, or a stone in a sling. The more taut the string on the bow is, the further the arrow will travel that is the t…
