The Seven Avatars

Since I was small I had this idea of choreographing a dance which would include my favorite actresses and i have been waiting ever since for that dream to come true. The dance was supposed to take place at a prestigious event where the whole of the Bollywood community would be there and try to take in the extravaganza presented to them by moi.

Ive stuck to my obsession of the seven deadly sins.

So I kinda thought I'd reveal to you all who I think are perfect for the role and hopefully someday, someone famous reads this and tries to contact me to say "I wanna make this happen and I want you to be in charge of it"

Presenting to you, The Seven Avatars.The music to which this whole experience takes place is a song from Mynta which I also have developed a craze to obtain it since it was danced to by my puc college dance team but unfortunately to this day I am clueless of its name.

Luxuria/Lust - Shilpa Shetty or Nicole Scherzinger or Prianka Chopra

Gula/Gluttony - Asin

Avaritia/Greed - Kareena Kapoor

Acedia/Sloth - Deepika Padukone

Ira/Wrath - Sushmita Sen

Invidia/Envy - Bipasha Basu

Superbia/Pride - Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

what if the grass isnt really green on the other side?

Im not sure if many of you'll have this thought that maybe your friends life is much more happening than yours. Ive been plagued by guilt ever since the time I was compared to the other kids, another annoying Indian tradition passed on from generation to generation.

Do people really seem to be having the times of their lives, ever single day?

I know i have some fun days and some really crap days where I'd just be sitting on my bed wondering why I'm in such a college or in a boring place.

Girls according to me have everything made for them. Its like when i was in Goa and we were having such a big problem for 6 stags to get in since it was a couples night whereas single girls can jus shake their stuff while carefully balancing on their manolos and as a cruel punishment be surrounded by desperate stags, speaking of which tried to show me that they were not as sad as me even though dancing with the girls behind is not very convincing especially if her front is being occupied by another man who she really 'is' dancing with.

But i guess dancing in the club would hardly matter unless you were hooking up with a drunk lady/man and just know somebody is gonna get lucky tonight.

The worst part is that when you really start thinking about this stuff that all the bad stuff that happened in your life suddenly feels that they can come and crash your feelin down partay, well atleast in my case.

Depression, thy name is most hated. Be gone, you three headed dragon. Hatred, Malice and Jealousy.

Five point five - What do we do in MBBS?

I’ve always felt the world of doctors has always been surrounded by this thick dense cloud of ignorance. Heck I didn’t even know about it until well how I can I put this nicely… until I was ‘talked’ into it. Although my mom never felt I was engineering material and frankly speaking so did I.

For those who know nothing about this course let me give you an intro into the making of another edition of the already widely circulated lot in the world today.

MBBS as our teachers say is not really for smart people. Anyone can do it, it just requires common sense. But this is really a debatable topic as it doesn’t seem to be the viewpoint when you arrive for the clinical postings, where you shall be expected to have read the entire book on how to examine a patient from head to toe. And oh yes, it’s not just the outside but the working of the inner organs too.

Based on my experience, clinics is definitely not a fun place to be in unless you are those types who love to examine a patient who just happens to have the ‘classical’ findings of a textbook case. Yes, I did hang around those types for two reasons… 1. They knew Kannada which I have faithfully kept aside as a language I cannot learn, though I do understand what they are saying.. kinda…. And 2. being with the smart ones ensures your also part of the smart crew and be left early since they will be answering most of the questions while you hover like a shadow in the background.

Yes it does get kinda irritating, though im not complaining, as the workout of running up and down five sets of stairs, in search of either a doctor to present your case to or juniors who have taken the register with them and the person who has to mark your attendance has very little patience since its close to lunch break, has been helpful in removing unnecessary pounds which have accumulated over the weekend.

Another phenomenon noticed in med colleges are the transformation of the ugly ducking to a beautiful swan, which affects both sexes equally.

This may be due to the fact that some girls do get engaged or married either during their course or during internship. That’s when the frequent visits to VLCC or the straightening of hair or the eureka moment of learning to apply just the right amount of make up so you don’t end up looking like a call girl. For the guys on the other hand, there’s the loss of weight from first year since hostel food sucks or the pretty physiotherapy chick who hasn’t noticed you… yet, along with the change from specs to contacts and the laborious management of both brain, during classes and brawn, at the gym.

With 5.5 years spent in studying the various systems and how to manage the ‘lay man’, we reach the crowning moment when we are pronounced Doctors with our steths wrapped around our necks like a noose at the gallows. Its time for the epidural and the contractions begin.

And out into the world we go, having been delivered out from the womb of our college, crying, kicking and screaming.

Cuppa joy

Bubbles rising to kiss the surface,
A spoon of coffee added,
It swirls in the most psychedelic fashion,
A brown beauty in the making.

The milk is next,
They mix and match,
A yin-yang,
Till coffee wins the tussle.

White and black,
The sugar and cardamom is next,
Their entrée arousing Aroma,
Who rises up in smoky splendor.

Once ready,
Into their porcelain throne they retire,
Where I wait,
Soaking in the goodness of this wonderful experience.

PS the preferred setting for the above may be imagined to be a window sill overlooking the marine on a wet weekend or a comfortable sofa which has memorized your every curve and bump or if you're living the good life, a lazy boy ;)
