Whether it be Bihu holiday (State holiday of Assam), Puja, Diwali holiday or holidays after exams, after finishing that last final exam for the year, a medical student is left to wonder about what to do now. See, usually after semester exams some medical students would go out, have a drink, party, but still have the next day’s busy schedule buried deep in their subconscious. However, that nagging feeling of responsibility is replaced after the final exam for each year (MB we called it in Med School) is over by this sudden exhilaration and happiness for two whole weeks of freedom that is, ironically, mixed with feelings of confusion as well. Why the confusion? Well, what do we do now that our time is not occupied with studying?!

Being a Blogger!

iStock_BlogTypeWriter-e1355120416611You know how they say the pen is mightier than the sword. Not sure who originally wrote that, but I’m going to put my personal spin on it.

If you blog, prepare to make friends, frenemies and enemies. You will make some people laugh, some people cry, some people look over their shoulder, some people will re-examine everything they thought was true and some people will just read themselves into anything and everything you write.

Surviving a major accident- Saved by Grace!


A few moments after the accident happened, I lost my grip on reality and to be honest that was not a very good experience. After I regain my consciousness, I thought of two major things.

Me: (to myself) I really need to sleep, I have to attend the morning dermatology class. I need to do all the classes tomorrow. I don’t believe it’s already 3:14am. I am only going to get 4 hours of sleep…

I Miss You!

“So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart”- Metallica (Nothing Else Matters)

It’s been a year since I last saw her and I am wondering whether or not she will ever miss me. I know for sure she will never do all the while when I really miss her. She must have changed a lot, all I could think of is the good times we shared together the dumb little things. Every time I am alone I started thinking about her I sometimes feel really sad and lonely, like there’s no one who loves me. The only thing I want to do right now is to see her. Even though I know I am not going to see her for another 2-3 years, but these memories will be true, real again. Yeah I miss HOME!
