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…

Doctor Who?

That would be us, we’re doctors now! A while ago, our compulsory rotation ended, and life has been nothing short of a tumult of mingled emotions. Does that qualify as an excuse for being an absentee blogger? I hope it does. There is absolutely nothing that can prepare you for internship. Its funny how we’re…

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….

The Big D

(Decision) A few months ago: Person:“ Watson, what specialty are you interested in “ Me: “Not sure, but I most certainly know what I don’t want to pursue-Surgery” A month ago:  Person:“ Watson, do you know what specialty you want to pursue“ Me: “I haven’t decided yet “ After successfully getting through 4 medicine OPD’s,…

Humble beginnings

It’s been a month into our “compulsory rotatory internship” as they call it here and there’s so much we have to say about it! It’s going to be a long post. At the outset, apologies from us, for being so irregular on updating our blog. We’ve been busy among other things. But to start with,…

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…

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…

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…

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…
