Out there we started a long chit-chat 

She stood nearby us and glanced at

With confusion on her face and hopes in her eyes

She approached us with fear in her voice

Handling a paper she stood beside

To know what was mentioned inside

I casually read it with a normal sigh

But for her to handle this was pretty high

A clinical prescription with a few tests

Without which she would never again be the best

Trying to decipher the blood-red rashes on her skin

Though I could barely diagnose anything

Her prognosis was good but with medicines only

Sadly for her own treatment she had no penny

Standing there helpless with white coat

I could only see saliva swallowing down her throat

I realized over small things the way we cry

When these people have lived their life so dry

And once again to us she taught

That to grumble and depress Life is too short!

The Pride being Physio!

“Why didn’t you take MBBS if you wanted to anyways be in Medical field?” asked my friends

“Why don’t you become a lawyer like your Dad?” asked my relatives

And I never had one answer. Because I have multiple purposes to be in this field! Before letting you all know the answers to why I love being in Physiotherapy field, I would like to tell you all my real life story.

Around 11 years back in 2006 , during my childhood,my Father had witnessed a local train bomb blast. The blast occurred in the same compartment he was in. He went through first aid and surgeries in hospital. And out of the 3-4 people who survived, my dad was one of them! Being a fifth standard kid who had never ever been to hospital and who had no clue why dad hasn’t returned home for a week, first time went to visit him. After a few days stay, he got discharged from hospital. Returning home, his medications were still going on but I used to observe , that there was this one guy who used to come home and give some exercises to Dad. I never saw him in white coat, never saw him with a stethoscope around his neck but still all used to call him ‘doctor’. I remember him very well!

After my 12th exams when I was supposed to make a ‘career building’ decision, I got to know about Physiotherapy and the entire incident just went through like a Flashback. Even today my dad remembers that physiotherapist. He might have forgotten the surgeon’s name but he still remembers the physiotherapist’s name as physios are the ones who spend the maximum time with their patients. That’s when I took the decision of becoming physiotherapist! Today when I treat patients, I always remember how efficiently that physiotherapist had treated my Dad and these patients too are someones’ Parents, Children, Grandparents, Friends. And it’s my responsibility to treat them well and get back to their functions.

As said “A surgeon gives life to the patient, but a physiotherapist makes that life worth living”.

Many people have still never understood who are Physiotherapists? What do they exactly do? In fact, physiotherapy is a field which has its domain almost everywhere. A typical mentality of a human is ‘If I’m ill or if I have any pain , I shall visit a doctor’. But why not follow the ancient words of wisdom which say ‘Prevention is better than Cure’. People need to understand that just because I do not have any disease or disorder , doesn’t mean I’m healthy!

Long hours of sitting in wrong postures during office work- Physios shall prevent the future likely to occur disorder.

Pain, unable to walk due to arthritis- Physios shall relieve the pain and get you back to your activities.

Weakness due to paralysis- Physios shall get your strength back.

Exhaling difficulties due to respiratory disorders- Physios shall help you breathing efficiently too!

No movement after surgery- Physios shall get you back on your feet!

Gaining strengths from my weaknesses
Success in exploring my own bliss
But how am I gonna tell that
It took me a year to transform into this

I’ve changed a lot, they feel
The obsolete, vincible me, they always miss
But whom I’m gonna explain that
It took me a year to transform into this

I love the beauty of conversations with depth
The Shallow ones could never execute this
Though I’m unable to convey them that
It took me a year to transform into this

They dislike this invincible, carefree me
My changed strong nature gets them piss
Though it’s so difficult to explain that
It took me a year to transform into this

The emotionless, stonehearted me
It’s the best feeling to become this
But people never understood that
It took me a year to transform into this!

Beauty of Simplicity

My article about “Maturity’s Measurements” spoke about the human misconception of maturity (how people consider maturity to be and what it actually is). This write-up of mine shall talk about another human misconception that’s “SIMPLICITY”.

“I want to keep it simple without any complications.” “I wanna dress simple.” “I want my wife to be a simple lady.” We often hear these statements from people. ‘Simplicity’ is something which attracts me more. But what does it exactly mean?

It might differ as per everyone’s perception as to what do they define ‘simplicity’. Sometimes we don’t really like people who wear dazzling clothes, put on excessive makeup. But we fail to understand that it’s their choice. And we have no right to judge them upon their choices. Appearance and choices can never define simplicity! We also tend to not like people who talk unnecessarily, flaunt their success, basically ‘hero talks and zero actions’ type people. Again these are the ones who catch attention by their speech. But is it that staying quiet means being simple? No, again it’s difficult to understand a simple personality merely by what that person talks.

I would like to share something about a friend of mine. She’s simple. Why do I find her a simple person? People around her rarely perceive her the way she actually is. She’s the perfect example for me who made me understand that every person who cracks jokes like crazy, acts silly isn’t always the happiest or without tension in life. She’s the one who made me realize that beauty isn’t always necessary to impress people. Kindness, being polite, caring for others works better. She’s like a hard crust but a soft core! For her, spending and investing time and money on education is more important than on all materialistic stuffs. Her free time is an investment in reading novels and books. I personally know what all has she been through, maybe not everything but i can definitely say that she’s a truly strong person. Despite of anything there’s always a smile on her face. She infact has a lot to flaunt for. The depth at which she understands and percieves things without any judgement, the humble being, despite of any success.

She may not be aware about the materialistic world but she surely knows the art of successful living. Did she join any class or course for this? No, those were her observations, experiences and knowledge which taught her “the simple living”. And I’m truly a lucky person to have her since my childhood. Whenever I feel boastful, proud for my success or any good deed or even materialistic, I simply remember her.

Ethics Anywhere or Nowhere?

Recently, I had a theoretical exam on professional ethics in my college. This exam is primarily conducted every year in most of the colleges to get us students acquainted with standard values and morals which are to be followed throughout our professional practice. But does everyone know what ethics are for? And even if they know, does each individual implement the same in their practical life?

A wise person once said, ‘ethics is knowing what we have right to do and what is right to do.’ The most simple and comprehensslible definition of ethics! Not just professionals but I personally feel that ethics should be followed by each and every individual. A few polite words with a stranger, a good listener for a friend, neat and tidy presentation of ourself wherever we go is all a part of ethics. Ethics of life!

It is completely agreeable that it isn’t easy to stay polite with a smiling face every moment and in any situation. We sometimes lose our temper, be hard to someone, get irritated at places where we ideally shouldn’t. It’s totally human. But a small act of forgiveness, gratitude for good can help develop relations better. Whether that be a doctor-patient relationship, a customer- businessman relationship, or simply our parents, relatives, friends and other informal relationships.

Ethics is something significant in every aspect of life. Personal, family, professional and social circles are all enhanced by ethics. Even if we have right to do something we must know if it’s right to do it, how much ever trivial it might seem.

I am the boss. I can walk in my office anyhow and at anytime. But I won’t.

I am the senior. I can definitely screw them. But I won’t.

I’m almost on the verge of bursting my anger out on someone. But I won’t.

-That’s ethics

Think about it! ☺

The Maturity’s Measurement

“She shouldn’t be a school girl. Looking at her figure, she seems quite mature.” “Hey look , his muscles, beard, overall physique. He looks pretty mature.” – These people measured the maturity in terms of mere physical appearance.

“His knowledge in this field is amazing. He explained the concepts so beautifully. Truly mature knowledge” – These measured the maturity in terms of knowledge. Still, sounds better!

“I had a talk with my best friend about sexual relationships. She is really mature to know these things.” -These people measured the maturity in terms of knowing about physical relationship. Infact in today’s world of modernity, this is considered to be ‘mature’.

Do you think you’re really mature? Especially if you know the above mentioned statements? NO, we aren’t mature at all if we feel that maturity is all about growing in physique, or knowing things better. Infact that’s actually where shallow thinking begins.

I personally feel maturity is much more than that. As said, “Maturity doesn’t come with age, it comes with experience.” It’s all about understanding these experiences and accepting what we experience!

Accepting success and having your feet on earth. Accepting failures and working harder towards success. Experiencing pains, not just physically but mentally too. Even after such experiences and falls in life, getting up, leaving the past and moving ahead. Understanding that a bad past is a good teacher and not a forever setback. Knowing the importance of whatever we have in our life and gratitude towards everything. Understanding that everything in life happens for a reason and being precise, it happens for good. Most importantly understanding that we ourselves are responsible for our own actions, whether they are right or wrong. “लोकाना कळतं पन वळत नाही” (people understand but do not implement) Why? Understanding and then implementation of those things in your life is the best you can do for yourself and for the society!

Now answer me. Are you mature? You know when I really felt like being mature?

When my Mother told me , “You’re the most understanding and adjusting girl at this young age who decided to stay in hostel by herself.”

When my Father told me, “I’m a proud parent that I have a mature daughter with whom I can share my every problem and she gives solutions like a mature person.”

When my Sir told me, “At such a young age you have your own blog. You’re already a step ahead.”

When my friends told me, “You are such a deep thinker. Your silence could never express your thoughts.”

And most importantly when the patients I treat, tell me, “Madam, I want to get treated only by you. None could ever understand my pain but you.”

That’s exactly where I felt I won as a mature person in life!

Parents- My Life’s Core

My Heart always says “Must Go”

But Momma always claims a big “NO”

Our every conversation ends with fight

Yet I inform her everything each night

“Oh my child, but safety is the issue”

Says Daddy wiping my tears with tissue

“But I’m grown up now!” exclaimed me

Yet to them, I’m their Lost Little Bee

I wish to live, learn and explore

But their concerns stops me afore

They seem right at times and so do I

Never felt like bidding them good-bye

Mommy’s world and Daddy’s girl

I’m their oyster with precious pearl

Their empathic voices starts my dawn

And the entire day can never end wrong

Guiding me towards all correct trails

Directing my ship of life which sails

Being my forever shield from darkness

I thank Almighty for my lovely parents!

Since childhood my parents have done a lot for me. They taught me each and everything necessary for every aspect of life. Self-esteem, respect and care for others, forgiveness. They have always been guiding me, always supporting my decisions and if at all I choose any kind of wrong path , they are the ones who get me back. They are my protective shield. Their intense and immense love makes me think how did God knew that I need them! And as it is rightly said- “God cannot be present everywhere and so he created our parents.”

Oh My Diary!

You always have a few things about yourself​ which you don’t want anyone to know or precisely other humans to know. Those few secrets you wanna pour out but can’t find anyone worth your trust. Or maybe you are not at all in a good mood to talk or open up to anyone else. At such times you still have this friend! Your Diary!

The delights of my whole day

The glooms which I can never convey

When good listeners aren’t so common

Oh my diary, I wish you were a human!
When I feel so deeply blue

When I cannot get over something new

When people are something I can’t summon

Oh my diary, I wish you were a human!
When an obscure body unable to express

The tortures which lead it to depress

When all wrongs are faced by a woman 

Oh my diary, I wish you were a human!


When the world seems little unfair

Biased behaviors causing too much despair

When ‘Fraudulence’ is the current human

Oh my diary, I wish you were a human!
When world turns it’s back towards you

When people overtly replicate whatever you do

When you realize beautification of a demon

Oh my diary, I wish you were a human!
