I have lost the gift-the gift of god – to express, to write my heart out, to fill the paper with multitude of words. I have become a redundant writer. I realized this in the morning today when I wasn’t elated at the sight of a blank writing pad and a bottle of Boheme L’aime […]

Medical college is tough and when we pass through our clinical years, it is the toughest of all. Many of us want to be amazing doctors, but most of us do not have an idea about how to be one! Books don’t teach us to be an amazing doctor. It is our attitude and our […]

It was dawn of the 20th century. The old plantation worker had just returned home from a hard day’s work. He sat down on the grass, under that small shelter he’d built and picked up his old guitar. Memories of his dead wife and the struggles they faced flooded his mind and strumming it slowly, […]

Human beings are a queer species. An advanced one, no doubt, but peculiar nonetheless. From the day we’re born till we arrive at death’s door, we are conditioned, groomed and sculpted to suit the general norms of society. Society is what makes us an advanced species.
