RoAd TrAfFiC AcCiDeNts..!!!

Part A
Two months back, I was posted in Sahyadri speciality hospital (deccan gymkhana, Pune) for my Clinical postings... Just like my daily routine, I went to college & then to my postings.... I travel on my pink Scooty pep+ everyday, as I have no other option, except to drive...(I despise driving actually...i get freaked out)
As I was driving at a slow speed & was about to take a left turn, a man on his motorbike came from the wrong side, suddenly swerved his bike in front of me & we were about to crash horribly into one another...

thankfully I pulled my brakes just in time,hitting a stone in process & losing my balance .... "dekh nahi sakte kya uncle??" I yelled at him... He replied by mouthing a few, very classic bad words at me... I was furious..& I realised that I was shaking with shock, my left arm & right ankle hurt & of course I was late...... Trying to come back to normal, I sped up my scooty a bit & finally reached the hospital... I quick…

Chinese-Italian Pasta..!!

When it comes to cooking, everyone around the world has different tastes and likes.
Cooking I suppose, is an art in itself.

The best part about it is you can always create something new.

So here is my recipe of a unique  "Chinese-Italian Pasta"

Common Wealth games, sports games or wealth games???

PART A...
As today's a holiday...I had the priviledge of getting late up in the morning, as usual, after getting fresh & ready, I decided to check out today's newspapers, (ya..I know eating & reading simultaneously is a bad habit...) As I read the head line of "Games become India's Shame" (about the CommonWealth Games), I decided to read the article... & as I read on, I was shaken....
I mean almost everyone knows that a certain Mr. Kalmadi has filled his pockets full with notes of money, everyone knows that a certain Mr. A R Rahman was paid an amount of Rs.5 crore & yet he produced a third rate song for the Games, Everyone knew that there were additional committees added because the preparation for the games was found to be inadequate... & yet with just 11 days before the CommonWealth Games,the foreigners are complaining of stinking toilets, stagnant water & stray dogs!!! 
Is our country so dumb to appoint these irresponsible people as the l…

The Clock is Ticking. How time flies!

Time is something that nowadays everyone says that they don't have enough. No time for chilling out with friends, not enough time for submitting projects, not enough time for family members, no time for this, no time for that!!!! I guess all of us, you & me, often use phrases like "Sorry, I don't have time, or else I would have......." or maybe "My life's so busy, I don't even have time for myself".... all of us are cribbing about our life....& Mr.Time is nicely smiling & laughing at our plight!!
I am NOT here to discuss time- management. There are many professionals out there to discuss & teach it. I am writing this because I suddenly realised that even if we are not aware of this most of our life, almost all our decisions are based on whether we have time or not. Our schedules, our meetings, our various special "dates", our daily-soaps,our lectures,the office hours,etc etc everything under the sun depends on this 4 letter …

everyday at Sassoon Hospital...

Image
Part A The exprience...

"Please help me, Its paining...& I can't walk.."were the cries of a 35 plus female, in the medicine ward of Sassoon hopsital...I, with two of my seniors,one intern & one batchmate,were there to treat her... it was my 5th day at Sassoon Government Hospital, Pune..

"Take her case history"...ordered one of my seniors to me & my batchmate.....well obviously, we have to act obedient in front of our seniors, so we quietly obliged, & started asking her things,which doctors need to know, so as to begin assessment...by the way there's a particular format, & we must comply with it....or else we are termed "stupid" & the information we have collected is termed as "incomplete"...
Anyway, as we tried to make her stop crying and start answering out questions, I wondered whether it was right to manipulate a person like this so as to make him or her listen to our commands & demands...I brushed aside that …

Villagers in cities, the biggest controversy.

Image
The other day I was meeting my friend but she came a bit late. She said, "These beggars, one of them,a small boy, was literally chasing me, I had to give him 10 whole rupees, only then he went away, don't know where these people come from,sorry I'm late." That she was late, didn't matter to me, I was wondering, what causes these beggars to send their own children begging like this, on the roads, I mean I fully respect the begging racket shown in movies and written about in newspapers, but are there some more reasons, which lead the poor strata of society to beg,borrow & steal??
Thousands of villagers migrate daily to big metro-politan cities in search of work, because they can no longer afford to earn a living by farming. Farmers are suffering day & night. By the way I thought that farming is the main occupation of India, but looking at the current situation of farmers in our country, I don't think so, do you???
Who is to be blamed for the increasing un…

mobile mantra...!!!!

Yesterday night at 12 am, a beep on my cell phone indicated that I had recieved a text message...it read "hiee,hw r u?wht r u doin?rep soon" well obviously at such an hour, I usually am getting ready to sleep..but still I replied.."m fine wht abt u?i ws readin,wht u doin?"
now, I wasn't actually reading anything,my eyelids were drooping & so I was about to sleep, but just a text message by a friend on my Samsung mobile phone & there!!! I was wide awake ready to chat away!! As you people might have experienced, once we start chatting, its an never ending process, I finally slept at 2:30 am....I was wondering, what is the reason that keeps me awake at night & engrossed in my cell phone in the day?? Is it excitement of chatting with a particular person, or is it the sheer pleasure of holding a high power,high technology device in my hand which connects me to so many people even if they are miles apart from me, or is it the fact that the 'SMS packs&#…

Fitness & beauty mania!!

I woke up late on a sunday morning as usual...I got up & looked into the mirror....& like I always do...I started critising myself for being plump..In the afternoon,as I switched on the television, I saw the ultimate size zero kareena kapoor sizzling away...
& my inferiority complex increased double fold..!!!I tried finding the solution to my 'big fat' problem by asking my friends.some said, "try the gym..It really helps" yeah...I said to myself,,I sure would try the gym,I would definitely go there, if & when my mom would give me the money (which she would never, she knows I am never regular at anything...) & if & when I would get a few hours apart from my college & studies...( which is next to impossible..as I have heavy hours of academics)...so I neatly cancelled out the option if going to a gym...I asked still some of my friends...and they said "chill yaar,,why are u so worried?" I said to myself,,of course,why am I worried,I a…

Indian youth - modern..really??

Image
It seems like a frequent routine to me now, to hear people in their forties & older than that to say "You youngsters are so rude, no culture no respect, now in our times we were........" & they go on & on & on.

It makes me wonder that are we so bad?? have we really no respect? have we lost all our modesty, & the so called 'sanskriti' in an effort to 'modernize' ourselves????

From one point of view, i feel yes...all the above views may be correct. But then again, I remember the innumerable times I and my friends have cursed the Indian government for being lazy & corrupt,the college teachers for not teaching properly, the rickshaw wallah for not driving according to the meter system, the petrol pumps for not filling the entire amount of petrol for which we pay,the dirty roads full of garbage, & so on & so forth..the amount of discussions we have had at such instances are endless. Thinking a bit deeper,doesn't that show that in …
