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…

The power of two (Gametes)

We study almost 5 years, only about what could go wrong in our bodies.Trust me,  there really is A LOT.The tiniest mistake in a single cell’s strand of DNA, while we’re still floating in our mothers womb , a mass of cells which decided to be rebellious could result in something catastrophic. Your entire being…

4 years in: What changed?

You know how when you’re in school, nearing high school and people start to ask you what you want to be when you grow up, three options pop in your head (Only applicable if you’re of Indian descent) Teacher ,doctor or engineer.Yeah well it was only two for me. Teacher?No way! Why would I want…

Back to the grind

I can finally breathe.Two months of living on a strict timetable, studying all day, counting my 5 hours of sleep by the minute.All motivated by one goal, you would think it is to top the exam or something but really… it’s just to pass. There is no winning in med school is there? Well that…

The enemy within

On account of studying in a different state than my parents I have come to travel alone a lot. Which is great for me because travel stories make for good content (if you’ve read our posts you’ll know). By virtue of this, I’ve had the fortune only few have, of meeting new people and listening…

It’s the outside that matters

Bruised hospital walls.

The once painted walls of the hospital are now enveloped in grimy stains and white flakes. Numerous charcoal scratches from the multitude of stretchers that have grazed them. These black stains you associate with fear and sickness. The stagnant air around you toxic like the ashen fumes of a truck. So you sit holding your…

Kill them with kindness.

As rituals go, as soon as it was 10 o’clock, my phone showed “home calling”. And almost every day it’s the same old spiel, “How was college?” “Did you see anything interesting?” “Eat properly. Drink water. You’re a growing kid, you don’t need to diet.” Needless to say the latter is most often than not…

Halcyon

The heat of the blazing sun above scorched down on my fatigued eyes My tired feet scurry toward the library Time was fast moving and the test not too far. Alas the silence of the library was unnerving, my eyes remained fixed on the book but my mind wandered, as I read the same line…

#1 Violence against doctors 

Here’s what’s new. (Not really) Watson and I are starting this new series called “SERO-WAR” where we each pick a side on a relevant topic and make an attempt to give some insight into the same. Basically, a debate. We’re just trying to be fancy here. Sero-war is a play on the word serovar which…
