Hear them out, please!

It is heart breaking to come across these many cases of suicides in the recent past. And what is more painful is the fact that these are kids, merely in their teenage. To analyse, let us all go back into our past when we were teens. I am sure we all had a difficult time,…

Trust me, I don’t remember you…

Nothing changes in a day to day basis, but when you look back everything has changed. The once very careful you who has now least bothered about everything. Like, you’ve finally made up with life, accepted it the way it is.  The once curious you who is now not interested whatsoever. Like, you’ve learnt all…

Doctors – the Vulnerable Elite!

Sunday, March 12th, 2017. Not such a ‘Happy Holi’ after all! While the entire country was trying to burn evil, the devil was burning a Doctor, the one they call God-like. 11 p.m. Dhule, Maharashtra. A young man was brought to the government hospital which lacked the facility of a ‘CT scan’ and was asked…

The World Congress on Drug Discovery and Development, 2016, Bangalore!

Where do I start! As pharmacologists, the idea of a world congress on drug discovery and development, along with the presence of eminent personalities like our honourable President and Prime Minister, lured most of us into taking a trip to Bangalore. As an excited student, an amount of rupees 4.5K didn’t seem much back then….

A mood swing???

I have absolutely convinced that almost all of you have gone through it, the phases!  Everything goes smoothly till one fine day you just lose it, your calm, your composure. The emptiness fill you up, to the brim. And you do not know why! You are cranky, frustrated and tired of everything around you, within…

I came across this blog written almost a year ago, I suggest all of you to read it. Here is the link. To the author, Respected Sir, I was sincerely touched by your post. It took me ten years back in time, in 2006, when I was sitting with my parents and making a decision…

Don’t give up, yet…

I picture myself sitting on my couch with a cup of steaming coffee in my hand. The cup is so hot against my hands but everything else is so cold, so numb. I am looking out of the window, its hazy. All I see a these tiny little drops racing their way down the glass….

To live or to survive?

Does living and surviving mean the same? Does living for long years mean a survival? Or does survival mean living for long years? If you answered as a yes, you are wrong.

Diverse

It happened a few weeks back when I was on a trip, in relation to my work, to this North Indian state of Chandigarh which is where I got introduced to the diversity in and around me. I basically belong to the city of Mumbai, a place known for its humid weather. So when I…

Aged Innocence

They lived miles apart. One day, they planned to travel the distances, to meet each other, for it had been a very long time. When they finally met, somewhere midway, nostalgia washed over. Tired, they decided the bodies needed some rest, even though the minds were running at the speed of a horse. Can I sleep…
