Just a week late..

Today was an exceptional day. The day that I went into a nostalgic field trip of everything I did wrong, during the span of 5 months of this year. Or rather everything that went wrong this year. The day obviously started with the apologies from the previous night’s missed zoom calls. I got some apologies…

The Last Day

Staring up at the ceiling, I lay awake for hours after hours thinking how many more days my eyes were going to spend staring the very same ceiling while my brain worried endlessly, day in and day out, about what was to happen to me. If anyone ever told you this, “You’re a Doctor. It’s…

Wasn’t this enough to make my tea taste formidable?

The aromatic smell slowly drifted towards my nose. I must’ve been dreaming I thought to myself, refusing to open those tired eyes. As every second passed by, the smell grew stronger. It was the smell of something I cherished. My subconscious mind knew that. The endorphins already started kicking in and I voluntarily started smiling…

Who switched the light on?

Having landed at 4:00am in the beautiful city of Thiruvananthapuram (TRV), tiredness was a physical feature that I seemed unable to rub off. My mother’s hometown, the destination to which I was headed to, was around 3 hours from TRV. The car ride is usually one that gives a breath of fresh air unlike any…

The Chaotic Brain

Amidst the pandemic that has been shutting down economies and killing hundreds of thousands of humans around the world, I believe the lockdown imposed on us because of the pandemic has given us the time to think, ponder about things important and unimportant. What I really thought about was the topic of ‘interests’. I believe…

The scavengers

One of the commentators of my post, “What’s your number?“, brought out a topic that has probably been forgotten by many. He sounded like someone who was really bothered by the events that had occurred. It had bothered all of us but when he wrote about it to me, he ended with a note saying…

What’s your number?

I recently had a conversation with one of my friends regarding the unexpected amalgamation of two of our acquaintances. The summary of that conversation basically entailed that this girl deserved better and the guy definitely did not deserve her. And then this thought popped into his head and then later into mine. How do we…

The sunshine at 20:00

Sitting there looking out of the window, there I was, drinking a brilliant hot lemon tea with a fresh egg toast that was seated ever so gracefully on a fresh warm loaf of bread.  The sun rays were peering through the windows awakening me from the drifting state of consciousness that I was in.  Looking…

Dr W and my best five days

I was standing there amidst the chaos, filling out the final paper work of the shift, with droopy red eyes in the smelly work clothes and a jumper. I turned to look at the clock. It was 6:45am. I was just staring at the clock for a full five seconds before I decided to run….

The Central Line

The beauty of its arrival was something that always left me mesmerized. The lights flashed through the darkness of the tunnel. The sound grew louder and louder as it came closer. The wind rushed past me like a storm. Then, it finally came to a halt. The shiny red doors opened all at one go….
