The Chicken or the Egg???


(And my dear friends...this time..its short...and thanks to my colleagues...since i've 'borrowed' experiences...)

The pretty gal walked into the podium. I am sure my eyes weren’t alone in the run to watch her getting ready. Within seconds her lips began moving…and began the ‘melodious’ symposium. It took a few seconds for me to realize that the talk had started…I missed the title…who cares…I knew it is something related to gynaecology

It has been more than a week since I got posted in gynec, and still I am not sure if I know something more than what I had learned in Obstetrics… (The one in which I was previously posted). I don’t know how fast time flew all these days. I still remember the bewildered look in madam’s face when none of us could identify a Sims’s speculum (an instrument to excavate interiors) even after a week in wards and theatres. (Honestly…I refer to the operation theatres and not the abode of lecture ‘cutters’). It is not exactly the lack of interest…but…hmmm…I don’t know. Some low immortals reason that gynaec is for gals…how absurd? I call that attitude absurd not since such a thought is out of question…but because I know the equally pathetic condition of my female colleagues. Well here is the actual underlying problem (which I reason)…lack of ‘maturity’…being in the third year of MBBS means ample time to relax (misconceptions rule the intermittent time period in the magnificent course). I still live in the world of fantasies. There was indeed a golden age...when I strived…real hard to get into a professional course…then I had dreams…but I worked for them…okay my brains is not dead yet… still I do have dreams…but now…I just dream…so that they remain in dreams!

Hey…is someone calling me…? I was half awake…

Ya the symposium is over…

“Get up child!!!”

A strong sound drags me out of the chairs, “Good morning…hope you had a comfortable sleep…okay…Tell me about the kinds of ultrasound scans done…”

Is it the clarity of my pals sitting right behind me (whispering the answer to me!!!)? Or did the beauty of the presenter succeed holding my attention at least for some time?

“mmmm….ma’am…mmm….trans-vaginal….trans-abdominal…”

Madam had turned red…perhaps she didn’t expect me to spit out…

I sat down…sighing…

Hooo….escaped….

TRING TRING

Oh!…I had forgotten to switch off my mobile!!! It was yelling.

CAUGHT!!!

Perhaps Tenzing and Hillary wouldn’t have turned so happy after reaching the pinnacles of adventure… that smile madam had when she ‘ushered’ me out…I’ll never forget!!!

I was once again an ‘outstanding’ student…

“Hey …do you have balance…I wanna make a call from yer mobile”

And this is the nice part… I am never alone...no remorse…I’ll be on track sooner or later…’tomorrow never dies…!!! ’

Then the madam comes out…, “Hey fellows…when I was in your age…I preferred gaming in my mobile rather than dozing off…

Nice post. Studying is no fun, but being a student is more enjoyable compared to being an employee :)
