Sudden inspiration followed after seeing an empty rusted bucket in my backyard and I composed this #poem about neglect of what was once useful, now neglected, still owned, but not cared or sought after ..
Happiness, as in the context of a Hindu (a cultural, subcontinental cultural expression, rather than a narrow religious term) is something that was thought about my the brightest minds.
A #poem to express the same ..

Ode to The Monkey:
India’s tryst with Yoga is deep rooted in symbolism and runs deep into its spiritual classics, poetry, theory, ritualistic practice, grand-mother story telling and visual art forms.
I am Shiva : A tribute to an unmoving belief. An examination of ones belief in these testing times of Kerala Floods, Death and Destruction.
It was late in the day, i was standing at driveway gate turning off the lights to my clinic. I just glanced across the road where the indoor stadia is. This is where young college kids are working round the clock , selflessly for the flood victims. They receive relief materials sent across the border and sort it. Authorities are scant, but I’m told the work is supervised. I was struck how a fracturing society had gelled by a near cataclysm. My two lines worth were penned then I titled… Read more Kerala Flood : A Tribute to my land →

IITs has been asked to teach Samskritam … read all about it ! …..screamed our electronic media. The reaction has been mostly negative. Occasional person voicing some positive comments. Twitter has been abuzz, specifically with people and blogs quoting Deputy CM of Delhi, Mr. Manish Sisodia to the effect that whether the nex-gen JS version is really worth the upgrade over Samskritam. What better could one expect from a party whose leader is a self-confessed anarchist. Armed with my usual salt ( a pinch is too small a dose. I… Read more Sanskritam at IIT →
At a politically tumultuous time when you’re not even sure what secularism, nationalism, sedition, freedom of speech in particular and freedom in general (aazaadi) is, we have here a peice on what constitutes ….for want of better words , shall we say and in the process provoke a redefinition of the word ‘decently dressed’. Thought provoking for the impartial inquirer, revolting to the convent educated elite, too much for even the liberalism chanting neavueau-upworldly mobile, slap in the face for ultra-conservatives. All at the same time. Are we staring at… Read more Would you wear a garment without a blouse? →
Commemorative day for Cancer passed us by, mostly un-noticed amidst the din of modern self centered life. Here is an article by my dear friend and senior colleague Dr. Sekar Michael who runs a Coimbatore Pain Clinic at Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India and is actively involved in treating under priviliged cancer patients. This was published in Times Of India, an Indian News Paper.

A few days ago, Ramesh Ferris took his first ride on a motorbike. Born in India and raised in Canada, Ferris made the journey into rural India to meet Ruksa Khatun, the 3-year-old girl who is the last child in India known to have contracted polio. This weekend, as the nation quietly marked two years without a single infection by the wild poliovirus, that child’s parents wondered how they were going to manage the surgery her doctors say she needs on a foot crippled by the…
In continuation of my previous blog article: How many Administrators does it take to run a Hospital ?, the brevity and conclusion of which interested me so much that I went deeper into this subject. A link from that article drew me to an article by Kevin MD on the subject of health care spending. In India, as in the USA where health care spending is something worrisome, this should make very interesting reading. It is no secret that there is no love lost between Administrators and Doctors in most… Read more Is Medical Administration a wasteful expenditure ? →
Dr. Wes: How Many Administrators Does It Take to Run A Hospital?. I always asked myself this question… How many administrators does it take to run a hospital smoothly. They are apparently employed to make doctors life smooth which leads to better working environment and better patient care. .. well, at least in theory. In practice, things are a lot different. So, I started searching. I was sure I was not the only one who was having these thoughts. This is an interesting blog article on that subject. A very… Read more How Many Administrators Does It Take to Run A Hospital? →
