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…

My Money Book- Exide Life

“Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them” – Lemony Snicket This quote must be somewhat of a joke in this age of smartphones, iPads & Kindles. A book doesn’t arouse curiosity as much as a smartphone app probably these days. Google Keep, Evernote, Colornote etc, the Google Playstore or the Apple App Store are filled with APPS to make the daily TO DO list easy. Everything seems to be at the fingertips these days . In such a world EXIDE LIFE has come up with a MONEY BOOK. I must admit that when I first read…

The WashBucketChallenge

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…

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…

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…

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…

Love Thy Father!

He sat there on his wheelchair all by himself, so frail and lonely. He looked at the calendar for the umpteenth time to make really sure of the date. It was 2nd December indeed. It only seemed to make him more depressed. Back in the day, he was a jovial and friendly guy, a loving husband and father who would go to any lengths to keep his family happy. But time hadn’t been so kind to him. At 55 years of age his muscular legs of yesteryear seemed to have lost their strength and he now needed a wheelchair to…

Food For Thought!

I had read about BlogAdda’s wonderful initiative Blog To Feed A Child in association with Akshaya Patra probably on the very day it was launched. Honestly speaking, I didn’t bother to get into the details of it because I thought that not only would I be too pre-occupied with my personal stuff to contribute a blog post this month but also because of my ignorance (no harm admitting the truth). It was only when Dr Roshan Radhakrishnan tagged me in his post on his blog – GODYEARS & educated me about the whole issue and also showed me how much…
