• The Priceless Crystal
    Manali Jobanputra | 12-Mar-2018
    It’s the thought that counts!! Well, it holds true in every aspect. So today was a usual day at school, Coffee.. Class.. Kids.. Sums up my day in entirety. The last hour of school, I’d a class with my naughty yet adorable second graders. Today’s a cloudy day in Tehuacán, and hence I wasn’t in my best of spirits. ( Cloudy dull weather bums me out) One of my second graders; Valentina came up to me, wrapped her small soft arms around me and said in the sweetest voice ” What happened teacher Manali? ” I bent down to her and said “I just feel upset, I don’t like the gloomy weather ! “, she looked at me for a few moments, probably trying to understand what I had just told her. She smiled at me, and said sit. I was wondering what was going on. As I sat, she removed a little green crystal, the magical green crystal that she carried everyday everywhere with her. She believed the crystal was magical and it could make everyone happy. S

    They say perception can tell whether your glass is half full or empty. It's only the way you are looking at things matter. But that's it , let's be honest. Let's just call things as they are. If you are alone with no job and only tragedies surrounding you then you know your glass isn't just half empty but it's emptying. But if you don't have friends but are happily married you know your glass is going to get full. It is a perception but a perspective of things that has already happened won't change anything especially the future. And that's the truth we have to live with.

  • Our Bigoted Society
    Manali Jobanputra | 07-Mar-2018
    I live in a world that is governed by the laws of rights and wrongs. Every action is categorized in either of the category, and is binding to each and every individual. From the moment we enter this world, it begins, the teachings of right and wrongs. Our minds are wired to think the way the society wants us to think. Its no different than a herd of goats following one behind the other, blindly. We too, ignorantly,  keep believing and practicing these baseless laws.   There is no freedom to choose what you as an individual perceive to be right or wrong. I wonder sometimes where it all came from, who actually got to decide whether something is right or wrong. Why does someone else get to decide for me? So many of us fear to make choices, because we’re blinded by the society’s bifurcation of deeds.   The freedom to finding my love is trapped by society’s norms. It doesn’t matter if I love him unconditionally, it’s wrong in the self-proclaimed Jury’s (the so

  • Holi hai
    Dietician | 02-Mar-2018
     Holi is one of the festivals significantly related to human nature . The night of holi we have holikadahan which is nothing but getting rid of the evils overpowering our sense .The next day i. e dhulivandan or 5 days later rang panchmi we get colour, in short give a fresh start , a new beginning . An empty page is always blank , the time we start filling colours is when we start decorating it and whenever it goes wrong we simply tear the page . Life also goes with a similar motto. Colours are one of those things in life which, completely overpower us and we never complain. Just a simple change in colour , completely  changes our thought .  They are the best healers for any and every pain. Each colour plays a specific role in our life.  May be that is why  even celebrate with colours. We are so dependent on colours . Although now a days we like to click monochrome , black and white pictures but ,that is after we have umpteen number of colourful images. From environment to te

    February about to get over - breaking silence only one thing pops up in my mind The  world is a big bad place. But just remember that every dog has it's day. There's Sunshine after a storm and rain. Every cloud has a silver lining.  Everyone's experienced lows and highs if today things are not working out for you don't loose heart your tomorrow will come you'll rise and shine. You will find bad people, wrong people but they're put in your path to make you stronger.

  • Fathoming Us
    Manali Jobanputra | 18-Feb-2018
    I am torn between my mind and my heart! Everyday there is the same conflict and it drives my cortisol up, my spirits low and mind numb. I wake up in satisfaction of having freed myself of the pain and agony, and cry myself to sleep in the regret to cutting him out of my life.   I fail to be able to make peace with my decision. My day runs normally, until the moment I come across something that relates to him, and I am thrown into a tornado of memories and questions. I feel the tornado causing destruction inside me as I sink into the realm of regrets.   I regret that I cut him off, and I am reminded of the blissful moments we shared, as tears roll down my eyes. The regret weakens my decision to keep away, and I almost take my phone to call him, when I am reminded of the wrongs he has done to me.   I am enraged at myself for letting myself break for a man who has wronged me in so many ways. My mind starts weighing the rights and the wrongs, and somehow it can never decide which ones heavier

    Telepathic communication sounds pretty outdated right. But I have experienced and I'm sure many of us must've experienced this. Repeated thoughts about a person , a place. Yes they're trying to communicate something to us.  There are some bonds our soul shares with the people that are present in our life, were present and will be present.  Just thinking about a certain friend and receiving a call from them. Missing someone and suddenly being invited by them. All these and a lot more deja Vu shows us some kind of a mystic power our brain possesses a sixth sense maybe. Thoughts travel faster than wind so they reach us from those who we share a  bond with. All this sounds a little different but can be thought over.

  • Balls to the Bully
    Kalamwali | 15-Feb-2018
    I am not ordinary. I never was. And I never will be. Just like you. None of us are ordinary and that is an undeniable fact. If we were all meant to be normal or ordinary, we would have been produced and processed in factories and not been born is different homes, under different circumstances, with different traits and natures and most of all different physical attributes. I am about to pen down the most controversial piece of my life so far and well, it’s not going to be a piece of cake but it’s going to give me peace of mind. When we sat to discuss the theme of the month for February on Kalamwali, I knew we didn’t want to do the usual “month of love” jazz. After doing some research we hit a rather serious topic- Bullying. The moment it was decided that ‘Bullying’ will be the topic of the month, I knew I had to write. Honestly, bullying is very generically considered as something that happens in schools, colleges, hostels etc. I was fortunate, popular and strong e

    Sometimes too much caring can be disastrous for a person. People only want to satisfy themselves they do not take care of interest of other person or how he is reacting and how much he is caring...... "The much you care double of it will hurt you". One day the person will react like an stranger who once use to be a good friend of yours.  They don't try to understand the feelings of other they only want that their need should be fulfilled when you are in friendship with that person. Once the motive or objective is achieved they will forget your kindness towards them, how much you care for them, the help which provided to them, everything they will forget including you. They will not see how much you cared,  your honesty towards them ,how much you well behaved with that person and how much respected that person........

    Life has its own beautiful ways of teaching people.  A 6 month internship teaches a doctor so many new things. Sitting behind the chair is a great responsibility.  The patients expect so much and I'm just another human being like them but they constantly remind me of the responsibilities my shoulders hold. They make me study something new everyday. It's a beautiful experience to be able to help someone heal and when they come for follow ups telling you the medicine worked it's overwhelming.

    Yeah!!!! It's right no one cheers for single in this selfish world. But today I will try to prove it wrong through one of my life incident. There was a boy full of sincerity, punctuality, responsibility taker and not a cute but good boy. He was a average student. He always try to engage himself in his own world of thinking and creativity. "But things changes in seconds but for him it was milliseconds'. One day he met a girl although he was a shy guy and was not much interested in talking with girls but that girl was different. Without knowing the future result of this friendship which was full of hardship for him to forget her later on, he start talking with her she also did the same. At one moment they were good friends but what that girl think he didn't knew at all. But remember one thing "as the time changes and a person starts to meet new people he/she starts to forget less important people and also.start to refresh there brain". The boy left all alone she met someone else. He tried to come back in wo

    Soulmates is a frequently searched topic online. Everyone wants to know the signs of soulmates. Crossing paths with people doesn't link their destinies with you.  Soulmates are actually the people who you feel comfortable with, connected with, they don't trouble you, your entire being is absolutely at ease . You feel positive and energetic around them. This soul mate mimickry can be done by really pretentious people. It's important to be able to listen to your intuitions and let the inner voice guide you as to who should be allowed to enter your life .

  • Reading a passion
    Dr Sana Khan | 14-Jan-2018
    They say books don't change people paragraphs do sometimes sentences do. To be able to write good compositions my teacher suggested me to read good books. That's when my beautiful journey of reading began.Time spent reading is the time utilized. I have cried, laughed felt every emotion while reading . Shakespeare, Charles Dickens, J.K Rowling , Paulo Coelho, Stephanie Mayer and of course Enid Blyton thank you for helping me live a thousand lives. A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The Man who never reads lives only once Reading and writing go hand in hand.A well read person is a gem that's all I can say.

  • A step taken back....
    Himanshu Manna | 11-Jan-2018
    He used to be my best friend in 8th & 9th but FORTUNATELY that friendship is no more. I thank the Almighty that he has shown me the true colors of that guy and I thank Lord for taking me out of that vicious circle called FRIENDSHIP..... He is the main reason for my loneliness and for him I have to listen from everybody... We promised each other that we won't let go our friendship for that GIRL, but, he took a step back and left me alone in this vulnerable world...

    "Life is real, life is earnest and the grave is not it's goal dust thou art to dust returnest was not spoken of the soul" The human body and diseases lots of subjects and lots to learn. Asthma, diabetes mumps measles myocardial infarct were words and now they were real. Nebulization, metformin, antibiotics each patient teaching us something new. From learning how to enjoy from a 3 year old child to words of wisdom from an 80 year old. Yes this is an experience of a student to an intern to a medical professional...
