Thank you everyone and WP!!

Hey everyone…πŸ™‹

Received a notification from WP on completing 4 amazing years..so a quick post..

As mentioned work keeps me busy and occasionally once in a while when I do post and get such amazing support and love from my fellow readers and friends here on WordPress it really make my day.. urges me to keep writing..even if it’s just rants..it feels amazing truly..😍

When days are dark and sad, reading such positive comments from friends you haven’t even met cheers me up…literally..so just a short thank you note to everyone following me and stopping by to read, especially friends who actually make time to read, comment and share in my happiness and crib sessions..

I started my WP journey on a pretty random note..I had a few writings and I just had to express myself and wanted someone to read it..I hated FB..πŸ™„I hadn’t even the slightest idea of how one posted a blog and that it was even possible to blog or it was called a blogπŸ™ˆ

Once I started my journey here I learnt so many things..it was kind of an adventure for me..I enjoyed reading fellow bloggers post and realised its indeed a bright happy world out there..

At one point when my blog was dormant, due to a personal loss I started blogging again and boom, WordPress kept me busy during those dark teary days..
I made soo many new friends across the world, I enjoyed reading their posts and comments and replying back..soo much for WordPress,so thanks again guysπŸ€— it’s not just a blogging platform it’s a boon in disguise!!

Hope I am not sounding all emotional πŸ™ˆ

Wishing you all a fab week ahead..

Yup that’s me Nee!!πŸ€“

Being Nee #8

Hey everyoneπŸ™‹

I have long been MIA ..work keeps me busy and the little time I get I just want to laze around..

No book or TV channel fascinates me..Saturdays are working days, so no long weekends for me, Sundays all I do is sleep,cook, read the news and binge eat..

Oh I do workout too, the gym saw me being punctual for a week and then poof I did not want to get out of the bed thanks to the early morning rains..πŸ™ˆ

Work wise I am learning a lot of things as usual, apart from surgeries, more specifically human behaviour, as being me, Nee..I tend to and wanto learn from my observation and mistakes but I never learn..πŸ™„ I keep repeating them again and again, not to say that I am some goody two shoes but try as much as I want, I can never ever learn to be diplomatic..πŸ˜’

It is like the diplomacy genes in my blood aren’t quite expressing themselves..πŸ™„
In my family, all are laden with the knack of being diplomatic and able to tackle situations so easily, whereas I find myself being pulled into deep deep trouble..😣
I guess it’s something which is never learnt, it’s just inborn or something like that..😏

Newton’s laws of motion comes into play in my everyday life..the way you treat and react you get treated and reacted to..
I am good to some I get treated that way..I don’t like few people and I am not their favourite either..πŸ™„

Lessons learnt which i should but I never learn from..

🀯Don’t trust anyone completely..be good do good but always be on the lookout for yourself ..save your ass (if I may use such language)

πŸ™I guess most people are introverts not everyone is outspoken or eternally bubbling away with eagerness and enthusiasm!! Basically people are precatious!!
They measure their words and speak only when spoken to, answering to the point, making me wonder if I am not normal??πŸ€”so now I do shut up and I listen,taking it easy and also I do not go around making besties instantly..

But yes I would not let my happy spirit stagnate..πŸ€“

A happy me greets everyone in the mornings and my learnings on human behaviour continue, so much for my rants…πŸ™„hope you all have a fab weekend and a great week ahead..hope to keep posting..πŸ€—

(Hope is the word here!!)

The Gulmohar Tree🌳

Hey everyoneπŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€
Happy June🌀️

A post long pending..

Work kept me busy,
June makes me happy
Soo soo happy,
that I wonder why..😜

Here is a little play of words penned, rather typed when I came across the many gulmohar trees, laden with beautiful bright red flowers and tender green leaves, in full bloom inspite of this scorching summer heat!!! Seriously a soothing sight for the sore eyes..😎

The Gulmohar Tree🌳

As I passed by my house,
I saw the fiery red spout..
Behold the blooming Gulmohar tree,
With bright red flowers and leaves soo green..
The road looked royal,
with flowers strewn by..
I dared not tread, lest I destroy..
The beautiful flowers fallen down,
Embers of coal on the ground..
A carpet of finesse and velvety look,
Filling up every crevice and nook..
As the leaves glisten in
the bright red sun,
Do stop and take a look,
for the gulmohar is in full bloom..πŸ¦‹

Have a great week ahead everyoneπŸ€—

Mother’s day thoughts

Hey everyoneπŸ™‹

It’s mothers dayπŸ‘©
Wishes pouring in to Mom’s all over the world..and me… Well an emptiness prevails.
It’s been 18 years.. Not a day goes by without me missing my Mummy.
I still remember, as a girl in her early teens, me, cycling off to the flower shops nearby the Infant jesus church in Bangalore, picking up a bunch of chrysanthemums, to wish my mom, a very very happy mothers day and the scene would be repeated every year on her birthday.😊
The million times I fought with her and the trillion times I made up with her.
Mornings was war, clash of the titans, what with my mother running after me with a comb in one hand and a glass of milk in the other and me running away.😝
Finally she would win, ending in me gulping away the milk..😣
Scoldings would follow which was an everyday affair..πŸ™ˆ
“You are late today!! why do you spend so much time in front of the mirror??”
And me Nee, would make up my mind not to talk to my mom from that minute on only to be broken in a few hours span.
Scene change, come evening and the first thing I would do after coming back from school/ tuitions would be to run and hug my mom and tell her about my day as if nothing had happened,forgetting the staunch resolutions I had made in the morning, much to my dads amusement!!

I would lovingly burry my face into mummy’s tum tum and blow, tickling her and feeling all so secure..
The most safe and relaxing place in the world, my mother’s arms..

We would then go off to the temple, specially on Monday evenings followed by veggie shopping which was a fixed routine..

She would always buy me Uddina vadas ( fritters made from Urad dal) which I would gorge on with amazing homemade chutney powders/ mint chutneys, sprawled on the carpet, watching TV , with my German shepherd Rambo, by my side,who would have a literal puppy face, looking longingly at me in case I change my mind and give him a bite..
Those were the the tension/ stress free days..

Mummy would make the most amazing Methi pappu(Fenugreek daal),with yummy dried fish and Papad, she would( literally) run after me again ensuring I finish my dinner, which I had toπŸ˜• watching Malgudi days on Sony tv..
My homework all having been completed, I would laze next to mummy and watch Om Namah Shivay on Doordarshan, a serial about Lord Shiva, my childish mind completely engrossed on how Sati became Durga and hearing my mum telling me the qualities of the handsome Lord Shiva, following which she would tuck a sleepy me to bed, I would drift away without a worry in the world!!
All Tension and thoughts taken care of by my mom and the routine would begin again next day, right from waking me up to making me do my maths sums to getting me milk and ironing my school uniform, Mummy would do it all, come rain or sun, in good health or bad, Little nee was taken care off without a worry in the world.

Ahh how I wish for those days to come back again..How I wish to lie in my mummy’s arms again and be my old little self.
Mummy daddy’s little girl..
Please come back dear time, Come back for once..
So that I can relish and relive the memories again..

Psst: My mum passed away when I was 15 years old…a bad case of stage 3 breast cancer,having fought the battle for nearly 3 years..a post on that some day in the future maybe..

Ahh not wanting it to sound tooo depressing, I am celebrating mother’s day again thanks to my lil Rhea…a bundle of energy and joy…reliving the moments with her…

Have a great week ahead everyone..πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—

Google Patients 😎

Hey everyoneπŸ™‹

Cant believe that’s it’s mid may soo soon.. This week sure needs some laughs, while I get into a routine grind I need to be sane and atleast have something that is familiar and so WP it is..the most “familiar being” for me currently, hence sharing and posting something to laugh about with my WP friends.. πŸ™„πŸ˜ͺπŸ™ˆ

I do encounter many such patients at work so couldn’t resist sharing..

Patient – I have fever, headache, cough & cold. I’ve taken some basic medicines for the same.

Doctor – Which ones?

Patient –
β€’ Paracetamol
β€’ Amoxicillin
β€’ Levocetrizine
β€’ Theophylline
β€’ Montelukast
β€’ Bromhexine
β€’ Ibuprofen

Doctor – Someone give me an Alprazolam!

Patient – Relax doctor. Alprazolam is an anxiolytic. It may not help you right now. You’re suffering from an Intermittent Explosive Disorder (IED). A selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor like Escitalopram will work better.

Doctor – Someone give me passive euthanasia!

Patient – Passive Euthanasia requires you to sign a ‘living will’ in advance. Besides, you’re not even terminally ill. Now can we please talk about my fever?

Doctor (calls his father) – Papa, I’m joining the family business from tomorrow!

Sunday JFL!!

Hey everyoneπŸ™‹

Just a quick post on how Ramayan and Mahabharat would have been in the age of smartphones!!!

These pics have been circulating everywhere so couldn’t resist sharing..

Have a fun filled week ahead everyone 🌀️

Gyaani NeeπŸ‘Ύ

Hey everyone..πŸ™‹
Posting a sunday gyaan [Sanskrit word for wisdom…(for all the new readers)] after a really long time..
Ok so I joined back work after a long long break and how do I feel??? absolutely wonderful..love my profession!!πŸ‘©β€βš•οΈ
I thought I would have forgotten half of my knowledge and skills but sometimes I surprise my self when I am spot on with my diagnosis and end up being correct!!

Ok too much of self praise..πŸ˜›
So work wise I am too happy happy..😊

Now coming to people..general human behaviour!!πŸ˜–

Ahh some times I sit back and observe everyone, isn’t that normal?! Don’t we all do that? And what I have deduced so far in this span of three weeks at work is, things are not as simple or as complicated as they appear!!
From previous lessons learnt, never judge anyone in one go..
As Dr.house says Everybody Lies ..true!!! So do you and me..
Lying is ok, but lying for no rhyme or reason is just not ok..πŸ˜’

Work place comes with all added nonsensical baggage…it’s the same story everywhere..workplace drama is a never ending issue..I better learn to deal wid it..πŸ˜”

Never trust anyone!!

My dad always tells me believe everybody at the same time don’t believe anybody!!πŸ˜―πŸ€”

It never made sense..now that I am coming across such weird and varied personalities..I understand what he means!!

Ahhh now I get it!!

So does that make me more wiser with each passing day?? Definitely yes…so much for my Sunday gyaan..😝
Have a happy week ahead everyone.. πŸ€—

Please spare the children!!

Hey everyone..😧
This post should have been titled Being upset..πŸ™Ž

An 8 year old MUSLIM girl ASIFA was abducted..drugged..gang raped for days before being killed and all this happened inside a temple.!!!

Asifa

It is so heart wrenching to hear such stories and ashamed that it’s happening in my country..
What is worse is since the little girl was a Muslim, when they arrested the criminals, the Hindu groups protested and rallied to save the rapists!!! Such a shame!!!
Did the Hindu god or the muslim god save the child??noo… the child was raped in a temple, what I am really horrified is at the behaviour of our country men, finally our PM Modi spoke up about this issue..
I wish they punish the bloody rapists with severe sentences..Death!!!
They have no rights to live either outside or in jail after robbing an innocent child of her life..
People may rally and protest, carry out marches as much as they want but that little girls life is gone.!!
She will not come back come what may and the perverts, the many rapists, roaming freely out there will always escape..
I am soo ashamed and what makes it worse is I have a daughter and I worry for her future and safety cause no place is safe for children today (be it boy or a girl) except a mother’s womb!!

Once in a while a sensational story like this crops up and long before it is forgotten similar incidences occur yet again..Will this ever stop??!!Only time will tell..until then as mother’s to little girls and boys I feel it’s our duty to teach our babies from an early age so that they are safe from such predators..no place is safe for them anymore!!😒

May that little girl Asifa be at peace atleast now!!😟

Hey everyoneπŸ™‹

The mention of the word “Work” has made me sick I guess..πŸ™„

Ha ha ha I was supposed to join with renewed energy and even before I could report to work I was down with flu!!πŸ€’πŸ€•

Blame it on the fact that I am missing my daughter terribly or the thought of getting back to work after a long hiatus made me sick??no idea!!

Missing Rhea terrribly

Right now I am on sick leave, I sometimes feel chuck all and be a full time house wife..but then…nahhh not me!!!
So as my fever wasn’t subsiding I eventually had to go to a physician..yeah a doc going to a doc..have to..a must, when you are sick and have tried all medications and the only way out is to do blood tests and rule out the possible causes..

So off I trotted away to get them, every thing was within normal limits except for few blood cell counts which were low, fighting off the infection obviously and the X- ray revealed bronchitis, so I was put on bed rest and rest and sleep I did!!😍 Full on!!

Now work beckons and hope to rejoin this week, so hope I stick in this time and before I sign off..here’s how I feel!!

But…

Have a great week ahead all..πŸ€—πŸ€— I am gonna miss lazing around though😎

Hey everyone πŸ™‹
Happy Easter πŸ₯š

The post should have been titled missing Rhea 😒
Been a busy busy month what with me travelling and travelling ..my travel logs don’t seem to end!!
If it was pleasure I would be pleased, but work and shuttling cities is a pain, especially when you have to drive about 2 hours to the airport to catch a flight, it’s a torture!!
Anyways coming to what’s happening with me..
I have been busy with the routine Mommy duties and my day is jam packed with my daughter’s meals, play and sleep and only after she sleeps that’s like way way late at night do I get some “ME” time..
I make the most of it, right now I am hooked to Amazon prime, to those who don’t know what it is..it is something similar to Netflix..
So I am busy catching up on the latest movies and TV shows, the best so far has been this series called BREATHE, dwelling around organ donation..a good watch it was..
April is going to see me get back to work with a zing, after a 3 years break phewww..
I am just praying I remember my skills!! πŸ™„ have already started brushing up my text books in case I have forgotten where exactly the eye is located😝 ( for the new readers I am a doctor, an ophthalmologist to be precise on a very very long maternity leave )

Everyone is busy asking me so how do you feel getting back to work after such a long time??!! I don’t feel anything seriously!!
I don’t feel like I have missed out on anything..I have enjoyed ( except for the times my daughter has wailed and wailed and left me wondering what have I gotten into) I have enjoyed watching her grow, in India you get only 3 months of maternity leave and I choose to leave my job when I conceived her..my choice..cause that was more important to me!!
I have been there 24/7 with her and have relished,doubted, cribbed ( many emotions ) every moment, So I am glad I took a long break and now I feel is the right time to get back to work..
I sure will miss being around her all time but we got to do what we got to do…

So wish me luck guys and I hope to post more regularly ( yeah, hope is the word!!)
Have a great week ahead all..πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•
