The High-rise!

He watched the building with narrowed eyes. He knew that the moment of truth had finally arrived. He didn’t want to do it but had no choice. Your opinion didn’t count. They inched closer to the highrise. He placed his hand in the back pocket and found what he was looking for safely hidden. He watched the innocent strangers on the street who had no idea what was about to transpire. They reached the entrance and his girlfriend entered bloomingdale’s. His worst nightmare just became a reality.He withdrew his wallet from the pocket and clutched his credit card desperately……  …

The story of my blog – A SURGEONS SOJOURN

“If a story is in you, it has to come out” – William Faulkner Reading and writing is a passion for many. Somehow both go hand in hand. Like William Faulkner said in the quote above, all writers want their stories to be heard or in this case read. But not everyone gets the opportunity to GET PUBLISHED as they say. That is where the world of BLOGGING comes in. Unlike your “Dear Diary” where you jot down your thoughts (which are often personal) and then keep them to yourself, blogging gives you the power to tell the world exactly…

The WashBucket Challenge

My favorite way of getting out of doing chores is by acting like I’m asleep. But it never works -Author Unknown Most men would agree with the above statement on both counts. If there is one thing that men shy away from, its definitely got to be the household chores. Men are ready to work long hours in the office, spend hours sweating it out at the work site or even stand hours together at the operating table, but when it comes to even the simplest of household chores like washing the dishes or for that matter even taking the…

Dry baby, happy baby….happy mommy!

Only a mother can truly tell how important it is for a baby to be dry and tummy full!Here’s how much a dry baby can make a difference in your lives. The following post is in the words of Dr Nishita Fernandes, my wife. I woke up at 7am, stretched my arms and legs lethargic as ever, had a quick look at my awfully huge tummy and finally managed to wiggle out of bed. Somehow I lazily dragged myself to the balcony to soak in some early morning sun. They say it’s good for health. Being 9 months pregnant accompanied…

World Cup -Then and Now!

Stuart Binny walked out to the middle. He felt insignificant at the massive Melbourne Cricket Ground or the MCG, truly an historic venue. Yet, there he was, an important member of the team, one of the chosen 15 out of a billion to represent India at the ICC cricket world cup 2015. It was an important match and he had finally gotten a chance to show his skills for his country at the biggest stage of them all. The stadium was packed and noisy. Not for one minute could he believe that he was playing in Australia, it actually felt…

All in the Mind!

I wanted to write a post about positive thoughts. That’s when my wife told me about this wonderful experience of hers which really touched me and brought out a lot of positivity. So here goes. The entire post is in her own words I stood beside the water fountain facing the entrance to the huge multi speciality hospital that I was going to be a part of for the next three years. It was my first day as a post graduate student in the field of obstetrics and gynaecology, my subject of interest that I had gladly chosen myself. Yes,…

I, Creator

The world was surely being destroyed bit by bit. There was water everywhere which seemed ready to gulp down every bit of land visible . Everyone was frightened and running helter skelter to protect themselves. I picked my Pepsi can and began sipping it in awe of the amazing graphics of the movie 2012 as I lay on the sofa. Hollywood definitely has a way to make blockbuster destruction movies I thought to myself. The government heads in the movie were building some kind of ships to save the chosen few and the elite were using their money to book…

Being Social

Year 2004 I got back home from college and ran straight to my desktop PC. I first switched on my CPU and then the monitor and logged in to my Orkut account via Internet Explorer. There was a new testimonial waiting for me there written by my friend Prashanth and I was excited to read it though I had been bugging him to write one for me since weeks! It would show on my Orkut profile page and everyone would view it. Satisfied with what he had to say about me I then went onto check if I had any…

Mirror Mirror on the wall……..

October 1995 Riya checked her watch. It said 8:29 AM. She would make it on time to class after all! Having stayed up all night preparing for today’s exam she had somehow managed to oversleep and was now making a mad dash to the examination hall. The clock struck 8:30 just as she reached the door. It had been a tough two weeks for Riya just as it had been for the others in her class. The university exams were on and finally today they would be let free like a bird out of a cage. She looked around and everyone seemed to be mentally preparing themselves for that…

This One’s For THE Girl!

“Most people who meet my wife quickly conclude that she is remarkable. They are right about this. She is smart, funny and thoroughly charming. Often, after hearing her speak at some function or working with her on a project, people will approach me and say something to the effect of, you know, I think the world of you, Barack, but your wife, wow!” – Barack Obama, The Audacity of Hope She looked awesome when she danced. I could see her jiving to the number Mambo Number 5. The guy dancing with her seemed to be constantly out of beat but…

All Over Down Under – Melbourne

Today was such a tiring day at school. Nobody realises how stressfull life is for an 8 year old! We have class after class with hardly any play break in between. On top of it I have to deal with a few bullies in class who want to have a part of my lunch packed by mom. And then to add to it there is so much homework! That is why I think the perfect song for an 8 year old would be “saari umar hum, marr marr ke jee liye, ek pal toh ab humein,jeene doh“ As I came…

He came, He saw…I shaved!

Before I begin, I would like to thank my good friend Kunal Borah – The Kaleidoscopic Kanvas for tagging me and pushing me to write this post. He is someone whom I can genuinely call my Blogging Friend because I have never met him but we seem to somehow tag each other in our blogs! So here’s my story…………………………………. I was passing by the room named TREATMENT ROOM in the hospital when I saw an intern bent over a patient. It was the surgery wing of the hospital, my favourite subject and I couldn’t help but peep in through the…
