Monkey-mind

Having spent a LOT of my days on autopilot, only finding joy in the moment I slipped into bed, I often wondered when it would get better. When I would leap out of bed with a giant smile and find joy in every moment. When my mind wouldn’t be constantly scrolling down that goddamn, never-ending…

Still Shackled

I wrote this after I watched the move Thappad (Hindi) which left a deep, lasting impression on me. It’s about the insidious patriarchy that we see in today’s seemingly modern world. Would love to hear your views! “Thoda Bardasht karna sikhna chahiye auraton ko.” Which roughly translates to, ‘women must learn to tolerate some unfairness…

Did I even like blue?

As the sky turned purple,the moment day meets night,I waited for you, my dear,under the broken streetlight,my mind drifted with the wind,to the day I first saw you,In the fine three-piece suitmade your eyes a deeper blueand your wife on your arm,not a hair out of place,she enthralled the whole room,with a queen’s regal grace,You…

The day I said goodbye

Never did I imagine,this day would come,But I knew,I just knewIt was time to say goodbye,On the last day of that July.~As I sat,Tied to those machines,I longed to be free,and just be,To breathe in the salty air,And watch the sun dissolve into the sea,Like the sugar cube that melts into my tea.~But I couldn’t…

The moment we made it

What gets me through the hard moments is envisioning the future when I finally feel closer to my dreams. It keeps me above water on those days that feel endless. Medicine is hard. There is no two ways to say that. It’s endless studying to finally make it, and then, endless working. You also witness…

The Poised Princess

Walking the tightrope, A poised princess, You filled my cracks, With stained-glass insets, I twist and I turn, To impossible shapes, You revel in my lustre, They watch, mouth agape. Knowing well if I fail, I’d shatter to pieces, I hate you for being, My well-favored weakness. Then one day I fell, With no one…

Manifestation of my Mind

They say the pen is mightier than the sword, and it has held true for my life. Writing has helped me through many a tough situation. Feelings that I can never express have a way of manifesting themselves when I put pen to paper. It’s trying and exciting and I can’t imagine life without my…

A Physiological Conundrum

Most of my posts reflect my mood as I write to express, entertain and evolve. Hence sometimes the posts are heart-wrenching and melancholic and at other times they are simple and light. I believe that personal blogs are all about articulating your personality and what makes you, YOU. Medicine and writing are two key facets…
