Youths make for the highest percentage in demographic pie chart. Yet they are hardly contributing anything for the society or say, nation. They are not even trying to make themselves learn and make themselves competent for the things of future. They have much to do- little bit of television, little bit of facebook, little chat with friends and oh so much thinking about love or hoe lonely one is or how fat one’s got. They have no work to do! They are sleeping, sleeping pretty deep as far as the country’s wake up call is concerned.
When I see people who have lived for decades and they still act immature and foolish and childish, I find it pathetic, because living life everyday is a learning process everyday. If they fail to learn even the modest basics by the age of thirty I find it poignant.
Who thinks politics is dirty thinks his house is dirty and he’s going to do nothing about it.
I never planned to become a doctor. But after my schooling that seemed like best and cheapest option for me to get out of the house and live independent somewhat. I managed to get scholarship and I got sent to Bangladesh to study a 5 year MBBS course. A totally different kind of study is this- learning all about how my own body is built up, how it works, how it suffers and what can be done about it.. This suddenly became so interesting. Plus I love the prospect of dealing with something new everyday, a new patient or a disease and dealing with utmost care and trying to make him feel good. This is by far the noblest profession, or atleast it is meant to be.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
# This is a very famous poem by English poet William Ernest Henely. Where I came across this poem was while watching this movie- Incivtus, casting Morgan Freeman in the role of Nelson Mandela. Poem is about keeping strong amidst greatest of difficulties.
