Aditi's Tag

So I am tagged!! Here's it

• What according to you, is a blog?
Its a place where YOU call the shots. Post all that you feel needs to be, no rules. A fine way of putting your words into thoughts

• How did you come to know abt blogging?
Heard about it on my school yahoo group, felt dumb to not know what a blog is. Ran a google search and landed on here I am!

• How far it has changed your perception?
Well I have realised that I am not that bad a writer...realised that I am baaad at spellings. Speaking about perception of the world...hmnn it really hasn't.

• Are you true to yourself while blogging ?
Yes....can't blog about things that I don't believe in. So you won't find me blogging preaching Living in relationships, sadhu babas etc.

• Any blog? you wish to be the author of ? and why?
Ah I author enough blogs. But I wish I was the author of "Aayi's Recipes" . Shilpa updates her blog regularly and has a good database of recipes.

• What it has preached you?

• Two of your fav. Blogs? And why?
Two is a small number.....atleast a dozen. Check the blogroll...only blogs that appeal to me are in there..

• One of your fav. Post by a fellow blogger?
Difficult to zero in on just one post but I like Malshej Ghats by Nagesh. Like it for the album along with it. Its a long post but fun. Thw Album is a MUST SEE

• One of your fav. Post by yourself?
Movies. One of my first posts...

• A blog which inspired you?
Mukta and Nagesh's Blog 1 ang Blog 2 These blogs inspired me to make my own.

• any Blog friends ! who are they? and why?

• If provided opportunity would you like to meet a fellow blogger? Who? and why?
Certainly! Each blog creates an impression of the author in your head. Meeting them would help you understand their blogs better. Would love to meet Aditi, Dadoji, Pooja, Dilnavaz ,Shilpa...and some more...Have met a few bloggers too....Nagesh, Ananth, Aparna, Abhijeet.

• name a blogger, who comments regularly in each post of yours?
Aditi , Dadoji and Pooja are absolute regulars! Admire the sincerity with which they visit all the blogs, not just mine and leave comments.

• A blog, where you comment regularly?
Aditi, Dadoji, Pooja, Arz000n, Nagesh, Aparna, Rama...most blogs on my blogroll

• How does it feel to be called as a blogger?
Wonderful!! I feel bloggers are a different genre of people. In the sense that putting your thoughts into words, joys, sorrows, failures needs a lot of courage and an open mind.

I tag Nagesh, Aparna, Shikha

Amusing and Musing

Mid Day Boy
There is a boy I often see on the train who sells Mid-Day. He hops on the train, shouts "Mi de Mi De, tsk tsk"....."Mi de, Mi de..tsk tsk". He has a 'eager+ forlorn+ anxious to jump out of the First Class ASAP' expression on his face. Suddenly I got an urge to buy Mid day from him (Mid Day is something I buy only on impulse, or unless my Ajji (gran) is home. She HAS to have the crossword or she gets bored sitting at home all day). So he got in at Khar and I took a paper...started hunting my wallet for change. The train was about to leave and TC was on the train. So the guy said,
"Baad me sandaas me akey dena..."

I said "Huh, aye ruk...." He had long left the train, and the train had left the station. I keep feeling bad for not having paid the fellow, and befuddled by the toilet bit till Santa Cruz arrived and I realised I heard him wrong. He had said..."Santa Cruz mein main ayega to dena...."

Professional Secrecy
Now I know why professional secrecy is such an important legal issue in Medicine. Today in the Gyn OPD came a patient whose name I will obviously not mention. She was married and in Gyn you have to ask the patient a lot of personal time since marriage, about miscarriages, contraceptive use and so on. The lady started giving her history by telling me that she had been married since 5 years but her in laws had cheated them so she and her husband had had no physical relationship whatsoever. In her words, he had still not 'broken into her'. I was shocked. Not as much by that fact as much by the realisation that without having known me at all that lady had confided a very personal, a very serious matter in me. I am still dazed.....

Just for the fun of it

Just for the fun of it I have tried my hand AGAIN at fiction, twice in fact.

And just for the heck of it I started this new blog. No my primary blog is still going to be this blogspot one. But try my new one too. This is just an find out if wordpress is REALLY better than blogger, considering the number of bloggers making the switch. So far I didn't think so....but lets see.

Whenever I update any of my blogs shall leave the link avoid any inconvinience to anyone...

Ciao for now....

Self Advertising's my maiden attempt at fiction. That is if you exclude the funny essays I wrote in school with titles like 'An hour at the bookstall/railway station', 'It happened one night..' and so on.

The post is called 'Thoughts'

Thursday, September 07, 2006


At present I am posted in Gyn/Ob department of KEM. And 10 more days to go. And I remembered Dr.MSVK Rajoo, my psychiatry HOD from my alma mater in Loni. Now what's the connection you would ask. I will come to that, at the risk of being bashed up by all the feminists and probably my non feminist gal pals too. But I take the risk anyways. This has been bothering me for a few days now and finally I decided to put my feelings into words. Not only have I been busy but have also learnt that when you post too frequently the number of comments you get on your older posts reduces.....:)

Coming back to Dr. Rajoo. He is one of my professors I have adored. And who have inspired me. After one Dr. Abhang Prabhu who inspired me to take up MBBS, Dr. Rajoo was the one because of who my interest in Psychiatry deepened. Then one day he made a statement in class, "A woman's biggest enemy is another woman." And God was I scandalised!! He clarified, saying visit the maternity ward to know more, to see how one woman treats another. And I forgot all about it till I joined here. He wasn't too wrong. Here I see many gy/ob PGs......all females themselves treating their patients very badly. Those coming in the middle of the night to the labour ward are the ones treated the worst, "Arey if your tummy hurts, but you are not ready to deliver your baby, I can't admit you. Admit karke kya pooja karu tumahi?" Now thats not very consoling to the lady who's just 7 months pregnant, worried she's in labour too soon. Ok, you are overworked, your unit has in all about 100 patients, your diurnal rhythm is screwed for life and you don't remember when was it that you last slept. But is that the fault of the distressed patient sitting in front of you? Didn't you know before taking up this field that all your patients are going to be women coming in unannounced, in multiples and they are going to be anxious!! As a fellow woman can you not understand their anxiety! And when you start your private practice...will you still shout at each and every female who comes in at 4 am with labour pains?

I still do not completely agree with Dr. Rajoo but what he said wasn't too far from the truth....I am sad...
