Her Battle…

Soaring into storms of ocean waves
She had her own ship aptly sailed
With trembling feelings and terrifying fears
Fighting every struggle she got in here

Obstacles all over on that pathway
Yet she chose to run carving out her way
“Almost there!” her joyful heart exclaimed
Yet the dream’s doorstep had all demons unnamed

None held her hand in this egocentric world
She felt helpless without voice to her words
Almighty too was wandering looking for her
Her tearful eyes could see everything blur

Inhuman humans trying to pull her down
Yet fighting the battle as she belongs to that crown
Turning her pains into prayers, vain into victory
She’s chasing her dreams creating a history

Enemies didn’t matter to her, neither the battlefield
Nothing but the crown was in her vision field
Her prayers will be answered, her efforts will pay off
The flight of her triumph will soon takeoff

-Natasha Tungare

We all are fighting our own battles, no one around is even aware of.

A letter to the Man of our Country

It’s been a month since he was chosen as the Prime Minister of our country again. Just like 2014, people have again entrusted him with handling the reigns of this wonderful country. He has been
instrumental in transforming not just the nation but also many Indians. If I would ever converse with him, these would be my words…

Respected Sir,
My parents always say that we should thank the Almighty for everything we have. Since my childhood I always thanked God for everything, each day. Today I want to thank you. Not for me but for our Nation! Though this is just a drop in the ocean of letters, emails and tweets that you receive, I still felt like writing to you. My father always wanted me to become an IAS officer but that was neither my dream or passion. I am a doctor now, a physiotherapist doing what I love. Now I realize that to serve our country I need not become an officer. By just doing my role as a physiotherapist, I can passionately heal my countrymen.

I was never a person who used to be keen about what is happening in our country. But this is the biggest change in me. Now I am not only keen to know about day to day happenings in our country but also working on making things better around me by simply doing my role. You are one of the major reason for that. Other reason being my handsome and wonderful friend Prafull. This is the letter to thank you for the change you have created in me, this citizen of India. “Boond Boond se banta hai Sagar,” similarly I hope every Indian sees a kind of a change within themselves so that they can serve our nation in a better way.

I have more faith in humanity now. I literally get this fatherly feeling when I look at you. Not just that, I also feel that after a long time India is marching in the right direction. I am sure every citizen of our country feels more or less the same. This is the voice of a citizen who now definitely knows that India is ONE! This is the voice of that every human who now feels safe in this country and I am sure that India will be one of the most powerful country under your dynamic leadership.

Your obediently
Natasha Tungare

Phew, I just wrote it all at one stroke. I don’t even know if these few words will reach him. I just felt like writing, picked my notepad and wrote it all. Since childhood I never had an Ideal Role model. But I think our PM Mr. Narendra Modi might just fit the bill.

Life of a Savior- Doctor

Usually I draft my writeups in my phone notes section or on word app but today I didn’t draft anywhere. I am just out pouring it all here. 3 months ago, in my post Country’s true love I had written about soldiers who are saviours of our country and who spend their entire life serving for protection of country. Today having similar feels, I am writing about DOCTORS- The saviours of us humans!

I read this wonderful sentence somewhere, “The first and the last person you see in your life is Doctor! Respect him.” This one sentence says it all. A tiny soul when comes out of mother’s womb is handled first by the doctor even before mother. And when the same soul is counting the last few days on his deathbed, it is the doctor who thrives to enhance the length of his life. Our forefathers once said “God could not be present everywhere and so he created mothers.” Similarly “God could not cure everyone, so he created doctors”. But are these saviours getting what they deserve? Are these saviours getting enough respect which they deserve? I don’t think so.

Last week, a terminally ill, aged patient was brought to hospital in Kolkata (India). Despite of all efforts by the doctors, they could not save the patient. After some time, a truck arrived with 200 people (the so called relatives of patient) and started hitting the residential doctors, abused the interns. One of the doctors got deep skull fracture due to the rod inserted by those inhuman creatures in his head. There have been such incidents in past as well where doctors had been brutally attacked by people. And sadly by those same people whom they thrice their best to cure!

I am a physiotherapist and being in medical profession I know how hard we work just to get our patients back to their independent life. These doctors have devoted half of their lives studying to give the best treatment to their patients. These doctors have spent their lives away from their loved ones so that they can cure someone else’s loved ones. These doctors have spent late nights on duty to serve YOU. And is this what they get for their genuine, unbiased service to humanity?

You know, since childhood I was very fond of that white coat. Playing doctor’s role in fancy dress competition was my favorite character. And I guess every child still does dream of being a doctor. If this white coat turns into blood stained red coat, will any mother dream of her child becoming a doctor? Think about it! It is the time to stand with our doctors.

To each one of you reading this, I raise this question and I hope I get genuine answers. Do doctors deserve this kind of treatment?

Mind Games

It’s been a month I shifted here. Everything is good, exactly the way I had expected it to be. Maybe there was reason for some things to happen. And those some things I mean were some low phases where you just feel lost, undecisive, anxious, fearful about many situations. Yes you are right! I was going through such a low phase for more than a month. And this was the major reason I shifted back to my hometown.

I couldn’t really believe during that time whatever was happening. I never had such a long tough time ever which would affect my mental as well as my physical health. I wondered what was wrong! I could not understand if my brain was trying to chase something or my heart was stuck up with something. When I say this, everyone immediately start thinking about relationship issues and all. It isn’t their fault because at this age the major problems a youngster suffers are relationships. But I never suffered from anything of that kind. Homesickness, anxiety, emotional triggers were something very uncommon for a girl who had successfully spent her 5 complete years in a new city away from her home, away from her parents. What happened now? It was just my own MIND GAMES!

I don’t really know how many of you have faced this issue. Your mind starts imagining things which do not even exist in present and then you start feeling anxious, upset, fearful. This can be imagining about future and getting anxious, recollecting certain incidences from past (months or years ago) and feeling depressed. Yes, I went through such things. Eventually somehow it started affecting my physical health as well. I had insomniac nights, was unable to eat food and to my wonder I didn’t even feel like eating what I always like, had weight loss, anxiety which led to palpitations. I tried pushing a week or two, tried meditation, exercise to divert my mind but could see no change! You won’t believe but I had stopped writing. I realized this wasn’t me and decided to work on myself.

This entire phase taught me many things; not about life or world around but about myself and my health. Our mind is such a magical thing! We can imagine, perceive, think, feel so many emotions and what not. And this is how, it plays all the games. It took me much more time to come out of this phase. I still doubt if I have completely come out of the same. Every phase has it’s own way of teaching some or the other lesson. A few months ago I had different thoughts, different phase and now they are different. But ultimately I learnt loving all these phases and I learnt loving myself even more today. Caring for my body but before that my mental healthcare is now my priority. And I would like to convey this to you all too. Mental health and physical health are equally vital.

May month is considered as mental health awareness month and so I thought of sharing this story of mine with you all! To read more quotes on mental health don’t forget to follow my Instagram page Natasha Tungare. And yes now I promise to be regular with my blog;)

Country’s True Love

I’m not writing this representing a particular country. I’m not writing this thinking about my own people. This is for each one of you!

Sometimes I feel how badly I have to adjust in my hostel life,
Then I remember our soldiers who not just have to adjust but adapt to everything they face

Sometimes I feel how homesick I’m, being away from parents,
Then I remember our soldiers who leave their families with least expectations of returning back

Sometimes I feel I’ve too many difficulties in my life,
Then I remember our soldiers who fight each day to keep our nation away from difficulties

Sometimes I feel so stressful with my work and day to day schedule
Then I remember our soldiers guarding us everyday so that we live a stress-free life

Sometimes I feel so irritated when I’m unable to complete my sleep
Then I remember our soldiers who spend sleepless nights to protect us

Sometimes I feel like celebrating all occasions with family
Then I remember our soldiers celebrating every moment with their motherland…

We wake up safe each day. We walk and drive safe each day. Every day we feel that we are in safe hands. And the credits to our protection goes to our soldiers who thrive day and night serving their motherland.

Do something to show love to your motherland! Do something to devote to your soldiers!

The Veiled Face…

The depth in her dark jet black eyes
Her bright smile hiding painful lies
In this lonely world whom she could call
And her veil had to conceal it all

Owning up her own mistakes
Without letting anymore heartbreaks
Her guilts she owned them all
Though her veil had to conceal it all

Boiling blood in her red vein
Raging thoughts in her tiny brain
Holding in anger, standing so tall
Yet her veil had to conceal it all

Who knew what her heart spoke
Who knew the way her mind evoked
Her face could have expressed it all
Yet the veil had to conceal it all

There are so many around you who are walking with a smile, hiding their true emotions. At times you are also one of those. And it becomes difficult to express out. That masked face of yours is always hiding in the veil.

Another Change… Chapter 2019

A year ago exactly at the same time when I had written this poem As Clock Strikes 12 I had so many different things in mind. Someone has truly said that “The person you were, the person you are and the person you will be are three different people.”

Image credits- Google images

It’s just few minutes left for 2018 to end! And here begins the another change! The very beginning of 2019… I know 2018 was full of experiences, challenges, happiness, grief and much more. But most importantly we all had our amazing learning experiences in this journey. We all learn!! And yes, I had many ups and downs, twists and turns too. So chill! You aren’t the only one.

Through this enroute I learnt a lot about myself, about my life and other’s as well. One year changes a lot within you, isn’t it? I remember a year ago I was writing in my diary, making 2018 Goals and Resolutions. I did achieve some of them, wasn’t much consistent in many, though I have tried giving my best. Something more important was that I made mistakes and I learnt from those. I learnt being selfless, I learnt doing things for others and helping others without expectations, I learnt that different people have different psychologies, I learnt about acceptance and being nonjudgmental. And if I sit making entire list, there are uncountable things I learnt the entire year.

My college life to my internship postings, my hostel life to my life living in a flat, my student life to my life being a doctor, everything had it’s own way of teaching me that time passes. I love this quote, “Do not give up on your dreams just because of the time it will take to accomplish. Time shall pass anyway.” I changed as my mindset changed, my thoughts changed. And I realized that the change is always for good.

Share your experiences about last year, what did you learn? Good or bad, anything. Eagerly waiting to listen to them all!

The Tiny Souls

When we hear this word “kids” we have the image of that cute, chubby, little face in our minds. And yes who doesn’t like these little fellas? But there are some of these souls who are neglected by the world sometimes. Yet these are the ones who teach us a lot. Today why suddenly am I writing about this? I had been interning in pediatric department and that’s where I found that how beautifully these small lovable kids teach us about life! That pure heart and those innocent emotions. Not only did I learn about treating kids confidently but also about how do I add value to their lives and mine as well.

I remember an incident of around 6 years ago. There was a 13 year old champ in our residential apartment who had cerebral palsy ( a disorder affecting a child due to some birth abnormalities and other reasons). People in the colony used to state that he is mentally retarded, he has behavioural issues and things like that without even having any knowledge about the condition. All other families in my area used to keep their kids away from this champ. Why? Is being a special child a taboo? We are living in 21st century where we assume people to be more accepting and open minded. If you cannot teach your own kid to accept and socialize with these beautiful creatures, the stigma will stay in their minds forever. Sometimes we can’t blame them as the previous generations also weren’t much aware about these.

Yes, I did make mistakes here, I did go wrong while treating these little kids but most importantly I learnt. Being here made me realize that these special creatures are someone who teach us to live and love our own lives flawlessly. They aren’t apart from us but a part of us. We complain about so many things the entire day. We get irritated, frustrated just because things don’t happen the way we want them to. But we fail to realize that finally we have everything we had once prayed for. And here I learnt to be grateful for everything!

Do you know the best thing about these champs? They never need sympathy from the world. They are in their own small, unbiased lovely world! And, if you really want to feel what these kids feel, just make an attempt to enter their little world and you will realized how beautiful it is:)

Hospital- Teaching and Preaching

Keep your eyes and ears open and you will get to learn a lot from your environment around!!!

When you are working at a place for really long, you somehow get attached to that place. And yes, for me this place was nothing but HOSPITALS. Being in medical field, hospitals have already taught me a lot. Yeah you might have never heard someone loving hospitals, ofcourse not, but for doctors these hospitals are as good as their second homes. I cannot even describe how much these patients have taught me. Medical students often learn hands-on on patients but I’ve learnt something beyond that. They have taught me how to LIVE LIFE!! Sounds strange isn’t? How can someone who himself is on deathbed teach me about living life?

We keep cribbing about small mishaps each day. We never value the people who are always there for us and that’s our own family. We hardly give time to our family. Your family is going to be with you when you are in ICU and no one else! When I see those tearful eyes of mother who’s besides her unconscious son on ventilator, that’s when I realize how grateful I’m for everything. When you listen to the painful life stories of such patients, you suddenly realize that your problems are too small, infact insignificant.

People often ask me how can you not get angry? How can you stay so calm always? When I look back I realize I’m not the same person I was around 4 years ago. This maturity, peaceful mind, gratitude, kindness is all because of the experiences I had. As I always say “Life is all about experiences. Some are good some are bad. Either ways you learn” and hospitals and patients are a reason for me to have this change.

Do you know the story of Gautam Buddha? King Siddharth Gautam once while visiting his kingdom saw death of a person and the grief of his family heading towards funeral, he saw a beggar begging for food which is a basic need, he saw a widow carrying her little baby in arms wandering completely helpless. And that impact of all this was so much hurtful to him that he left his throne and kingdom and started helping and serving people. He became spiritual. I just gave the most minor jist of the story but point being there are people around who have faced more, suffered more, cried more. Think about them and your problems suddenly seem tiny.

One painful experience can completely change you and your perception towards the world! We all aren’t saints but we can do our part to serve the society.
