A Good End

Is there ever a good end to something which is going good? Endings to ‘good’ things generally bring a ‘sad’ feeling. But should they really? Isn’t life all about moving on? Isn’t change the only constant in life. Despite the obvious, our lives are, many a times, at the mercy of our perceptions and emotions. […]

The Covid Buddha

Buddha : You look sad today… Me : Shouldn’t I be? The Covid-19 second wave is raging like a wild fire in India. So much suffering and gloom all around with no immediate end in sight. I fear the worst for myself and my dear ones too. Buddha : I agree. One is bound to […]

COVID-19 Vaccine : To be, or not to be

Once again I invoke Hamlet in my blog title. But the famous words do aptly convey the dilemma faced by many amongst us regarding the COVID-19 vaccination. After the start of it’s COVID vaccination drive in January ’21, India has so far (till April 20th) managed to fully vaccinate nearly 1.74 crore people (two doses) […]

“Confusion…thy name is Covid”

Pardon my slightly poetic and Shakespearean inspiration in the title but I am pretty much sure if Hamlet were to be real and alive today, he would have uttered pretty much the same words. A lot has been written, said, heard and experienced about the Covid-19 pandemic which hit us nearly an year ago and […]

Get DARKed..Get Enlightened!

There are television shows and then there is DARK. To state that this German series on Netflix is mind boggling and mind numbing would be an understatement. In my opinion the creators Jantje Friese and Baran Bo Odar have dished out a masterpiece of philosophy and spirituality under the guise of science. I say thus […]

Keeping Leg Veins Healthy in the COVID-19 Pandemic

Pandemic, Paranoia and Problems The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way the world lives. Our priorities have changed and rightfully so. Preventing ourselves from the yet to be fully understood novel disease is important but getting paranoid about it will not help. The World Health Organisation and many scientists have pointed out that the pandemic […]


Epitaph As many might be aware, an epitaph is a short text that is engraved on a gravestone or headstone in the memory of a deceased person. Usually, it written by the loved ones to summarize the life of the person as aptly as possible. One can say that the life of the person gets etched on […]

Let go

In our fast paced lives, there are only few times in a week when the entire family sits together for a meal. I, being a firm believer in the idea – “The family which eats together, stays together” – have been trying for our Sunday lunch to be a family affair – my wife, two […]

The obvious reveals itself

In medicine, sometimes the diagnosis is simple and obvious. It merely takes bit of time, patience and clinical acumen on part of the treating doctor to clinch it. Ganesh Chathurti is a day of festivities for all of us. This year was no exception except for the fact that I had an emergency Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy […]
