Doctor in PPE

I have seen so many sick people throughout my MBBS and now during my residency. Have seen many dying. But have never seen something deadly like COVID19, taking lives of many whom I have talked to, whom I have known for sometime, whom I never expect to die so young. While taking my rounds in ICU last night, one of the patients asked for my phone to talk to his daughter. After talking, he told that she is an intern at a nearby college. She was on duty there. And here he is fighting for his life on 100 percent BiPAP ventilation. The next patient was a 25 year old young guy.

Sexual Assault and Women

When did we last apologise to a victim of sexual offence, for not being able to protect her from being acted upon violently, perhaps in a bus, roadside or any other public space? When did we make a legal and/or psychiatric counselor available to her from the time of reporting the crime? Maybe we should answer easy questions first. When did we last sensitise the police, public and doctor to have a sensitive attitude? When did we last confirm that the reporting of crime and its treatment is not equally or more painful than the crime?

Ankidroid flash cards was a useful study tool during my NEET PG exam preparation

Ankidroid is a flash cards app that I have probably used the most for my NEET PG preparation. For those who are not familiar with flashcards, a flashcard is a card bearing information, as words or numbers, on either or both sides, used for revising and memorizing. One writes a question on one side and an answer overleaf. There are a lot of flashcard apps available in the play store and you can use any of them. Now this app is based on the principle of spaced repetition for revision. You can make your own flashcards in the app(so this app is of better use if you start a bit early). These flashcards are then repeated in the app on particular time intervals.

This is where I had tea on my way to court.

A short summary of a court evidence describes the importance of analysis of intracranial haemorrhages during court evidence. The details of the case, name of the deceased, location of the court and name of the other expert have been purposely hidden.

All the bones of upper limb are important as far as MBBS first year exams are concerned

Anatomy is a subject which has the potential to be a headache to most of the medical students. I even felt that anatomy faculties take it as a credit when students say that Anatomy is a difficult subject. It is such a subject where your memory will be pushed to its limits. Even those muscles which don’t serve a considerable function in the body can put your exam results at stake.

Living and surviving with a dream at AIIMS Bhopal. Struggle within and struggle outside are undeniably the forces to reckon and face when humble beginnings happen for major projects. Did it ever happen otherwise? Looking at the present from a day years ahead in future improves the perspective and reconciles the unrest.
