H E L L O =)

It has been more than 2 months since I've started this year and it feels like a very short time. I have done my Paeds, which was good. I was thinking that I was gonna play with children, spend time with them bla bla, but it was the normal hospital setting where there were under 16s instead of adults. And they are there because of a health problem so you don't really get to do anything other than taking history, examination etc. But interesting cases! I loved Portsmouth hospital though I had to travel everyday. I have no idea how 5 weeks flew by and I can't believe I am blogging about it after so long, though it doesn't feel so.

After my paeds, I had a week of GP placement, which was also good. Now on Mental health. Had a couple of weeks on Old age psychiatry and now doing Child mental health. Going okay-ish but there are constant assessments throughout the attachments. So almost every/every other week we get to face assessments. But I like the fact that this year is keeping me going rather than just sitting in lectures. So, a busy year this is. But I love this life. Love to live. Love coming across different people, different attitudes and learning from them. Trying to make the most out of each moment is a bliss.

Although I've been a bit busy, I am getting to go home much more often than before during the weekends. I guess it's partly because I ve got my car down here. Fuel cost is pushed aside when it comes to choose either ?spend money on fuel or ?some time to be at home. :p Yet, I can't wait for Christmas holidays. Shops are overflowing with decorations stuff, gifts, chocolates, lights etc etc. Winter is emerging...damn cold is here again.
Anyway, hope you all are doing well. Have an energetic week :)

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…
