Disclaimer: Don’t take my advice.

If I had to summarise quarantine till now, it would be me trying out a bunch of new things only to find out I’m not good at anything. Yesterday, in a feeble attempt to educate myself in some things financial/economic, I set out to find a podcast about money. This might be my last few…

Just Do(ctor) It✅

By now you’d know that all of my posts begin with an explanation (irrespective of whether or not one has asked for it) as to why we were AWOL for so long. So for our 9 very diligent readers I’d like to tell y’all , this time we were on a hiatus because we were…

First, do no harm

“ Treat the patient not the diagnosis “ a little something I’ve heard so many times. It isn’t that I didn’t understand what it meant, but what meaning do quotes hold anyway if there isn’t a life experience to throw light on it. So here’s a little something which made those words ever so clear….

Winter is coming

Yeah, I wish. I wish winter was coming, but then I live in a tropical city. Here it either pours from the sky or the humidity makes my sweat glands pour. Its one or the other. What I meant was a med students’ winter and the gruelling days leading upto it…colder than the chilliest of…

It won’t be soon before long

With only 4 months of med school left I still feel like it was yesterday that I was the dreamy eyed 8 year old who without a speck of doubt said “I want to be a doctor.” The journey so far has been eventful to say the least. “Your tenth boards are very important” they…

Pen Harry met Paper

We left the store hours later, Our purses a little lighter our bags a little heavier Walking back with a childlike glee A lot of zeal we foresee In green and red and blue they come To break the black and white humdrum (of the textbooks) If you were to walk by our spot in…

Maybe you should see a “real” doctor

It’s been raining for a few weeks now, the trees look green, its gloomy outside, the air is moist with the smell of petrichor. Perfect weather for a cup of coffee and inspiration for a blog post eh? But apart from voices in my head coaxing me to slumber, my mind is blank. Writers block…

The wind, the grass and the holy book

What helps us study #1 The clock is ticking, 50 pages to study, 100 things to talk about One topic down, a couple strolls by Sitting outside has its perks, we know who’s dating, who’s hating, what’s cooking and who’s stalking(us obviously) Another topic down and an ant crawls up D’s hand, she shrieks, the…

The eye sees what the mind knows

We are in paediatrics rotation now and just yesterday I witnessed something unreal. Three of us were standing in the feared-by-all-students doctor’s cabin, meekly in a corner. He was asking us questions and we were trying very hard to put our combined knowledge together and impress him while giving each other the side eye for…

We have a problem!

(It’s called Math) I can be pretty damn indecisive and I don’t know how many people can relate but more times than less, even though I don’t know what I want, I most definitely know what I DONT. And I might have not known what I wanted to pursue until the end of summer in…
