Playing Cricket With Bees

After great gap of many years our cricket team finally won the tournament at Euphoria a dream which many of my batch mates could not realize

well I happened to be great follower of game just a single instance changed my perspective of game

from a person who loved playing I became a person who loved watching

it was in month of jan 2003 a match between 2k1 and 2k2 was going on

I was standing at third man position wearing all black and in intense moments I felt itching on my back

suddenly I realised I  had a swarm of bees on my hand

before I could react I was as if in a  in bees hive !!!!!

i was surrounded by bees  as if i had used that AXE DEO shown in advt where all women run after that man after he uses it



I heard some one scream lie down so i did that but to my amazement this bees number was increasing from pain and agony i was feeling

I looked around no one dared to come to my rescue

so thought i run to them!!!!

and I started running as if I was running at olympics can bet i could have defeated jordan that day

and reached the opposite end of ground where most people were along with bees

then Barjinder showed his nerves of steel and brought a bucket full of water and poured over me

and again one more

my face was fully covered with bees and some seniors threw their sweaters to me to remove bees and cover my face

suddenly i saw RAJIV SIR  from Surgery dept bringing his car on ground and he stopped near by me and asked me to get in

i with my bees got in ..and he drove me to hospital

i am till day thankful to him for his act

at hospital mybp was 90/60 that time…….and i was in bit altered senses i must confees

and then it took 2 hours for AVISHAM SIR 99 batch to remove those bee bites

he counted more than 100 and was amazed

it was really efforts of Dr Rajiv and my  some brave friends that i was saved from bees attack

but from that daysec 33 ground where our team practices has become a nostalgic place from me

The fear of bees catching me again resurfaces whenever I visit that ground !!!!

so I never played cricket at Euphoria because it happens to be our main practice ground but yes shared a dream with my batchmates of winning cup which has been fulfilled this year

An Ordeal of AIIMS

Preparing for competitive exams can screw up the greatest of students

and when the final Dday arrives your all preparations depend upon that those three hours and they are like walking on pieces of burning coalfeet will be burnt if u stop
and only thing you can do is run through it as there is no other way to escape the ordeal

Now this year AIIMS brought a new ordeal to about at least 1000 students in country
it was not only a test of intelligence but physical and mental toughness

although they were only set in eligibility criterion for giving the exam



this year roll numbers were not dispatched by AIIMS authorities on time and add to your woes were their highly evolutionary phone lines and super speedy site where you could spend hours to receive a fat phone bill at end along with a training on mental toughness and patience control

well i was victim of this gracious opportunity given by the apex institute so had to leave for duplicate roll number a day before


As i set my my foot on AIIMS campus at 8 am in morning thinking i was clever to come early i noticed a line of fellow doctors outside office and it was toooooo long i say so because i had my number at about 200 to 250 and within half an hour it stretched to 500 people This was biggest doctor gathering i had seen and that too representing whole country an example of “UNITY IN DIVERSITY” courtesy AIIMS
AT about 9 :30 am there came a blink of hope
we realized the lines were useless as authorities started distributing papers for issuance of duplicate roll numbers randomly

and to deposit them required another line to be mad

so in craze of hour everyone was found running along to get that paper
now imagine 500 people jumping on 4-5 people who had those precious papers

it was craziest moment I remember being into pushed here and there for a small piece of paper
as if admission depended on getting that

but this was not end it marked beginning of new session
after filling we were asked to report in hour

and then we were made to sit in ground with an old gentleman n center shouting at helm of his voice because the loudspeaker battery was not working and giving roll numbers

for those who could hear it was okay but those who couldn’t must come in afternoon

after waiting for 2 hours when I has started loosing hope of getting roll number I heard my name

I remember joy it brought me as if I had cleared all India exam and this was only though I had got duplicate roll number…………………
and next morning the exam that followed was much like ordeal I felt with array of difficult questions which has been trademark for AIIMS
