The Paradoxical Commandments

by Kent M. Keith

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.

Memorable Moments……. July 2010

“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans”

The most characteristic nature of life happens to be uncertainty surrounding us,even the next moment is unknown and that makes it even more wonderful .

A small moment can change and define a persons life. It may be a moment of victory, which may define new horizons and may set a new beginning.It may bring a new ray of hope, a light which may transcend in one life and may even inspire a full generation.  How can we forget famous 1983 world cup victory in cricket  had set some unprecedented history in game of cricket turning India into  a cricket crazy nation.

I’ll tell you a secret. Something they don’t teach you in your temple. The Gods envy us. They envy us because we’re mortal, because any moment might be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we’re doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again……….


Probably the beauty of this life lies in uncertainty and maybe we all humans should understand to live with it. It may sound difficult but it is something we need to cherish and enjoy. There may be moments where this may seem awkward,bizarre or funny but that’s how life goes on………….

The quicker we understand and learn to adjust the more we will cherish our stay on this planet .After all say an average life of 60-70 years ,more than half is spent in learning  new things and rest in coming terms with reality .

Nature has its own ways to make a man learn and it gives beautiful gifts to man .We need  learn to cherish them and enjoy every moment of our life and just remember that:

Life is what happens to you ,while you are busy making other plans ”  🙂


Tree of Life

Incredible India……

Over the past few months since  i have joined the Community medicine there have been a few incidents which have made me think as to how the  life varies from person to person

Even the basic perspective ,the way of thinking,mental make up all change in the circumstances one lives.

How a small gesture of yours can make someone real happy and how more than half of our population lives  in Rural India. There happens to be considerable difference in views of urban and rural population and gap seems widening with rising population ,growing inflation,and due to lack of basic health facilities.

There have been instances where I have felt how some one could be so ignorant at times or how basic health services have still a lot to cover to reach the common man.

Well one of the instances which really surprised me was a woman of less than 35 years with her grandson in Opd !!!!!!!

While taking history of patient i just noticed she called him(the patient) her grandson and likewise i was amazed.

I asked her to confirm as if he was her real grandson and her age

and she told me the story about her life as how she was married at early age of 14 and her first son at born at 16 and he was married at 15.

As i was just coming to terms with her story she further pointed how the kids mother had left their family and went to Nepal (her native place)never to return again

and kids father spent whole day playing cricket;and being the eldest in family she has just responsibility of bringing up the kid.

Well comparing this perspective with the one with the people in  professional  background where most people tie knot in late twenties or early thirties, and  spend quite a time in finding suitable match is really amazing

How much education is needed at the grass root level is really noticeable,considering the fact that above story was of person living in Chandigarh ,which boasts of  good primary education and good health services in the government sector

and condition in really backward states is not hard to imagine………

Mughal Emperor Bahadur Shah has summed up life quite well:

Umr-E-Daraaz Mang Kar Laye The Chaar Din
Do Aarzoo Mein Kat Gaye Do Intezaar Mein

Keh Do In Hasraton Se Kahin Aur Ja Basein
Itni Jageh Kahan Hai Dil-E-Daagdar Mein

{For passing life, we brought four days, but two of them passed in desire and two in the waiting (for the fulfillment of the desire)}

Surgical Technology Learning Centre

Remember the first time you started applying sutures to a patient during internship……….

The feeling u had at that time…..
I am sure many would remember the guy who taught them suturing or who had helped them suture first time……
and eventually you managed to apply the sutures and did so many of them during surgical internship posting.

But you were never sure as how precisely you were doing suturing or how much improvement you needed in it.
Well this story seems to be a thing of past with new Surgical technology Learning Center coming up at GMCH.

If u have some interesting story on your first suturing ,do write in the  comment section…..

Here are few pics of new demonstration station ……..
