I have already broken my streak. I had promised myself I will get back to it. At least for the few days that the working- world doesn't dictate my time. But our time isn't ever really our time, is it? I am talking about my 30- day- squat challenge that I voiced on here, and... Continue Reading →
The desk on a non- manic day
The manic surgeon-mum desk I know nobody cares, but I'm still going to put it out there. It will someday serve as a reference to myself- I can come back to the post if I need to look up something 😉 After we moved to Trivandrum, we spent a few months in complete chaos. My... Continue Reading →
On the carousel this week
It's all dark clouds and dark moods here. A pandemic, some torrential rain and a dash of cyclone in the mix. Happy weekend y'all. Ha. As if there is any difference. Hours merge into days and days into nights. The weeks seamlessly coalesce. There are no work days and weekends. No school runs and morning... Continue Reading →

I now prefer to pen my thoughts under the cloak of internet obscurity. The paranoia was bestirred by patients looking me up; and was further... Continue Reading →
On friendships. And yes, HELLO AGAIN!
Well, well, well. Look who’s here. It’s been a hot minute since I have last been here. I even let my domain expire, for a while. With the “big move” and children and a new job; not to mention being a single parent (albeit temporary)- somethings had to be allowed to slide. I missed this... Continue Reading →
Hella folks. Just popping in to say a quick hello. Thank you for the lovely congratulatory emails and wishes. It is comforting to know that some you folks actually consider me a friend even though we have never met or spoken in person. The internet can sometimes be a fantastic thing. The new little one...

The Bright Side.
Hiya folks! How has 2017 been treating ya guys thus far? All 18 or so hours of it. Our little family isn't one to 'ring in the new year' with festivities or parties. I rarely send out new year messages or cards. And the first of January is just another bloody ordinary day. No resolutions.... Continue Reading →
What a wonderful world.
