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 →
Day 6- A tranquil apocalypse
Does't this feel like the proverbial calm before the storm? Do you sense the worse is yet to come. Like we are seated to watch a blockbuster movie, and the pre- movie trailers and adverts keep running on. If this is truly an apocalypse, it's seems quite tranquil at the moment no? I had a...

We are a restless generation, I'm told. We are impatient they say. We cannot wait. Nobody seems to get the fact that we CAN NOT wait. This is the pace that life dictates. If you haven't noticed, every succeeding generation is more prone to impatience. Why wait anyway? Our lives are most likely going to... Continue Reading →
The last laps and my survival kit.
There is no way around it folks, the next few weeks, nay months, will be all about baby. I cannot help it. It is such an all consuming life event. I once thought that nothing could be more consuming than taking the post- training exams. Boy! this is waaaay bigger. Anyhoo, I digress (like always).... Continue Reading →
The pregnant, surgeon-in-training.
If you google 'pregnant resident' or 'pregnancy during surgical residency/ fellowship/ training', you will be privy to a select few articles that occasionally appear in mainstream media about this small, unique subset of working women. Even medical/ surgical journals occasionally like to amuse themselves by publishing articles such as : Pregnancy during residency: II. Obstetric... Continue Reading →
The Ladies Lounge- Getting ready on a hot, hot summer day.
I just got out of some grubby, generic theatre scrubs. The kind that is baggy to the point of being dehumanising. In them, I feel like a scarecrow that is dressed worse than usual. Anyhoo, I digress. I am in the mood to play dress up. To get out and do some errands that definitely doesn't... Continue Reading →
Stuff that changed my ‘getting ready’ game!
There are times when you meet someone or use something for the first time, and you are blown away. You hear bells ringing in the far background and you hear a choir hitting a high note. You think to yourself "where the hell was this all my life?!!" Here are a few products that I... Continue Reading →
The one that stayed on.
This is going to be a lazy post. I am post- call and should ideally be sleeping. But the nursery run is in about an hour, and trying to get some shut eye now would be an utterly worthless exercise. I therefore decided to log on to the virtual world and say hello to the... Continue Reading →
Sultry. Warm. Intriguing. Androgynous. Quietly confident, subtly sexy. There, but not quite. Like the softest, most fluffy cashmere sweater. Like an autumn evening in the smoky woods. A woman who is supremely herself, and makes no excuses for it. A man who doesn't fit into pre- requisite boxes, yet knows his way around the world... Continue Reading →
The ladies lounge- New love.
I love mascaras. The good ones of course. And though some of the Maybelline ones are good and I'd been repurchasing them for years, I felt it was time to move on. For a couple of years now, I have been on the hunt for a new "go-to" mascara. I tried several top rated, blogger... Continue Reading →
