Year 3

I have started Year3 and am more scared than excited. Unlike how I usually feel when starting a new academic year -very exciting and look forward. I am now having the introductory lectures on how the attachments (placements) and the assessments are going to be as well as refreshing examination skills. From next week, I'll be starting the year3-proper. Seriously, I am kinda panicking as to how I should study, to what depth I should read before going to the attachments and so on. The first one is at Portsmouth on Paediatrics for 5 weeks. Just realising that I didn't begin this post with any kind of hi hello. Just jumped to the point straight away. Hmmm...I wonder how Dr Pratap is keeping his blog updated almost everyday between the busy schedule. I really wish I blog like him and hope that I never give up.

Previous years went with lectures and a few clinical sessions but this is totally different. The whole year is going to be attachments, traveling etc. Yes I do like traveling but not this type of having wake up so early to give myself 40-50 minutes to get to the hospital and finish late and again another hour to get back. I have cribbed about having to travel to portsmouth last year too. I don't know why they like me in particular to travel Portsmouth every year. Random allocations system hates me. Grrrr. However, in a way I am glad about hearing that Portsmouth is good at teaching Paeds. On the other hand, I have been almost petrified with comments on how harsh and insulting the consultants can get. And this is not just a news for me but I have seen this and I honestly agree with it.
As for now, I am kinda lost and don't know where to start. Everyone is so into reading and preparing for the attachments. Wish me luck.
God help.Take care all :)

Sevva Thosham and Science

At home! Had a good day today. Went to the Shiva Temple as it was PradoshaViradham today. Apparently, it was yesterday in London and today in SriLanka. I had no idea why and when people fast for Pradosham. I only had a slightest idea that it is something like Ekadasi. I got a good opportunity to talk to the priest there about religion, which is quite rare and unusual! I always get questions of why, what and how. And it was a time for me to ask some of the Whys I had in my mind though not everything. It is really amazing how science overlaps religion (in general). There is always a strong scientific aspect behind every feature of Hinduism. It was a delight to sit and listen to the priest about the religion and its science.

One of the interesting things I got to know was about the SevvaiThosham. I did not know much about SevvaThosham before as there was never a talk about it in my family. As the priest explained, a girl with SevvaiThosham should marry a man with the same thosham. And tha…

Female feticide and Sex ratio in India - BMJ

While leafing through the BMJ magazine; June, a letter on one of the articles of sBMJ May urged me to find the May issue and read it. It was about the unwelcome sex in India. I have heard about the high occurrence of female feticide in India but happening to hear a lot in the recent days on magazines and blogs.

The article touched on the dangerous traditions in India which favour for the birth of a boy than girl as boys are cheaper because of the dowry system. The high social and economic value of men is the causation for sex selective abortions in India. Though the dowry payments are illegal, it is accepted as a tradition to continue their family hierarchy and this phenomena is deeply rooted in the societies. Although is illegal to do a prenatal examinations to identify the sex of a fetus is illegal in India, if the families once known it is a girl, the fetus is terminated. According to the article, evidently there were about 5 million female fetuses are aborted every year purely on …

What Saranya means?

Does any of you believe in these kind of quizzes and answers? Stumbled on this site while googling for something else....Though I don't take these serious or believe them, just reading them is often fun :)


What Saranya MeansYou are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.
You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the wo…
