Were all those endless nights and early mornings worth it?

Was it worth it?

Were all those endless nights and early mornings worth it?

Was shouldering all those expectations from patients, professors & parents worth it?

When I look at those smiles, of pure innocence and unadulterated love, my heart whispers gently into the ears of my soul,

Han ji. Yes.

I have to admit as much as taxing it is to be a doctor, it is equally fun to be one. Especially if you are an extrovert or a people person, it is just the right profession for you.

Looking back at my 12th standard days, when I was learning biology in the lanes of Old rustic Chembur church, I couldn’t have thought of what an exciting journey it would be.

Catching the Mumbai local trains heading towards the Munna Bhai hall then the dissection hall for practicals, followed by lunch at our katta with the gang, then again dragging our lazy, sleepy asses for the rest of academic tortures, finally getting relieving at twilight, having special chai at gate no 2, chilling with friends, or organising events and fests, or winning some, breathing sessions at Hostel terrace at night, then heading back towards the pavilion, half exhausted, fully enigmatic.

MBBS does change you as a person. I can bet you, one doesnโ€™t remain the same. Be it intentionally or unintentionally, oneโ€™s aura becomes softer and gentler more like the puffs of cotton tree gliding through wintry evenings.

I thank all the people, before I was born, after, and whoever has touched me, consciously or unconsciously, for what I have become today.

Thank you so much.

I am very much grateful.

It is a new day, a new morning for newer beginnings.

May the force be with you. Take care.

Yours Only,
Dr. Raja,
The Doctor who cares.
