Happy World Photography Day: With Inspiring Quotes

The World Photography Day originates from the invention of the Daguerreotype, a photographic processes developed by Joseph Nicèphore Nièpce and Louis Daguerre in 1837. On August 19, 1839, the French government purchased the patent and announced the invention as a gift “Free to the World”.

Photography has the ability to tell stories and inspire people. It has changed the way we see the world and gave us the ability to share our perception on the world around us. The moment might be fleeting, but once photographed it gets frozen for a lifetime. Photographs have the potential to evoke memories and take us back to the past.The day also serves as an inspiration for many to take up photography as a profession or to pursue it as a zealous hobby.

Friendship is a little more trust,
A little less try,

A little more WE and a little less I.

Few hours in Goa..

After finishing our Pulmokarn2018 conference in KLE university, Belgaum we headed towards goa. It was a sudden plan and we just boarded a 4.30bus at Belgaum central bus stand to Mapusa, Goa.

The mind of friends are like railway track. they never meet.. but has to go together to keep the friendship alive…..

It was a different experience traveling in an RTC bus on a rainy day through the dense forest and narrow ghat roads with visibility being even less than 10 Meters at certain points! It was an adventurous journey which kept us at the edge of the seat as we didn’t know how the driver is managing to drive in such tough situation. There was a short tea break in the middle of the trip and also many dropping points. It became dark halfway through the journey and by the time we got down at Mapusa it was 9 15 pm, and we were filled with awe while bidding good bye to the bus driver who was very friendly and wondered how he manages to drive on those roads day & night every single day with unpredictable climate.

Soon after getting down we hired Bikes and headed to our prebooked hotel in Calangute. After check-in we soon left to a Sunday night party in Titos at Baga beach. It was a colourful party with many different performers and dj’s. We had a midnight walk at baga beach which was less crowded and peaceful.

This is a throwback picture of my previous trip to Goa in 2013. And this is my all time favorite picture @ Chapora Fort

Next morning we had breakfast at our favourite restaurant casa goana, Calangute road and started for Aguada fort.Since it was drizzling all the time we didn’t take many pics in Goa. We were almost drenched by the time we reached Aguada Fort. We spent some time at Aguada fort appreciating the beauty of the fort and sea waves meeting the walls of the fort.

Then we had lunch at Bom sucesso. And then we bid adieu to goa for now and started our journey back as we had 4 30 pm bus to Hyderabad. Though it was a short trip it was worthwhile to come all the way to Goa and enjoy its beauty in this monsoon. Hence, Goa will never disappoint you even if it’s for a short span.

Tips from my perspective:

1. Take a Bus from belgaum to Panaji and get down at Mapusa if you are planning a trip to the happening places. Ticket price was 105rupees.

2. Dont take Unreliable Taxis to cut down the journey time as the road is not very safe.

3. Carry your raincoats & umbrella.

4. Must try apple pie with custard at Cafe Goan.

Case Details:

A 28 year old male patient met with a road traffic accident in December 2017 and suffered from Subdural Hemorrhage & was mechanically ventilated for 8 days. He recovered from the head injury, but later developed ‘Tracheal stenosis’ as a complication of Endotracheal tube Intubation. He presented to our Pulmonology Out Patient Department with a complaint of dyspnea & hoarseness of voice.

At SVS Hospital Mahbubnagar, Our Interventional Pulmonology team with the support of Anesthesia treated this patient by cauterizing the granulation tissue in the trachea causing stenosis by ‘Rigid bronchoscopy’ followed by ‘Balloon dilatation’ of trachea.

Happy doctors day: A poem by a Psychiatrist

Doctor’s poem: A poem by a psychiatrist

Welcome my dear patient,Confide in me your suffering.
My decades of long study, and my hard, exhaustive training, is always at your service.
But understand this, my friend That I am not God, but neither am I the Devil!
My sleep at night, I give up, and my time with my family too.
I sacrifice my own health, sometimes, in order to heal you.
These sacrifices I don’t regret.
But understand this, my friend That I am not God, but neither am I the Devil!
I shall treat your illness, every night and day.
But will you get well by it? I confess, I cannot say.
“What do you mean?” You ask.
My answer is, my friend That I am not God, but neither am I the Devil!
You may get better, your health, vigor renewed,
Your eyes will then be filled, with tears of gratitude.
I do not deserve those tears.
Offer them to God,my friend, for I am not God, but neither am I the Devil!
I merely give you medicine, as my Teaching would tell me to.
But God is really the one who restores health back to you.
He deserves the credit.
Understand this,my friend That I am not God, but neither am I the Devil!
The same medicine that healed you, may, also sadly,
Unexpectedly and without warning, cause illness in another.
It’s all Destiny and God’s will.
That’s the truth,my friend That I am not God, but neither am I the Devil!
Illness, health, life & death, are decided by Fate, you see.
They cannot be guaranteed, neither by you, nor me.
As your well-wishing PSYCHIATRIST AND DOCTOR, I can only try my best.
Accept this, my friend That I am not God, but neither am I the Devil!
So shower me, my dear patient, neither with praise nor hatred.

Try to understand & remember,
This cardinal truth instead, I am a human being like you,
Imperfect &mortal, my friend That I am not God, but neither am I the Devil!

Tasty Tuesday: Best places to tryout exotic desserts in Hyderabad by TheTangyTales

Best places to tryout exotic desserts in Hyderabad are as follows:

1. Churrolto, Madhapur:

Their classic recipe Churros and Nutella & Espresso Choco dip was extremely good & decently priced. I would recommend that.It was crunchy fried churro stick which was lightly sweetened, when eaten with the yummiest nutella & chocolate dips it just melts in the mouth. The chef there presented and described the cakes very well. It’s a small place, but the variety they offer is vast!

IMG-20180605-WA0018.jpg
Classic Opera Cake: This exquisite dessert Opera cake  is a French cake. It is made with layers of almond sponge cake  soaked in coffee syrup, layered with ganache and coffee buttercream,  and covered in a  chocolate glaze. But I personally found this cake delicious and overpriced!! So that was a drawback.
IMG-20180605-WA0020.jpg

A churro is a fried-dough pastry— Originated from Spain and Portugal. They can either be thin (and sometimes knotted) or long and thick, where they are known as porras in some regions. They are normally eaten for breakfast dipped in champurrado, hot chocolate, dulce de leche or café con leche. Sugar is often sprinkled on top. Best tried at Churrolto, Hyderabad

2. Little Things, Madhapur:

This place has a great ambience with dim to moderate light and creative decor. Its heaven for dessert lovers. Cozy little place to hangout with friends for a casual chat over yummy desserts.

IMG-20180605-WA0013.jpg

Chocolate crunch_ This amazing chocolate pastry was delicious, soft , rich in chocoa and you definitely cant stop at one bite

3.Quattro, Jubilee Hills:

The place is good. It has nice and decent ambience for a dine out with family or friends. The twist added to each an every item on the menu card using molecular gastronomy is commendable. For veg lovers its a paradise, for others too, you shouldn’t get disappointed that the place only serves veg food, because its food is worth trying. Things might be a little pricey but it’s all worth it when compared to the dedication and compassion with which the staff puts up your dish on the table!!

The best part is Chocolate Saturn is a must have dessert for all Choco lovers! It’s a huge golden ball of chocolate with brownie hidden inside. They serve it with hot molten chocolate which is used to melt the outer shell and reveal the dessert inside with nuts and cookies !!😋😋
So, i would definitely give this place a big thumbs up 👍. Its food with added twist of molecular gastronomy. Its a must try place for people looking for good ambience , good presentation & delicious food!

3. Stick house, Banjara Hills:

As kids we used to have Chocobar, Mango and Orange candies. I always used to fantasize having a stick Ice cream with flavours of my own choice and finally Stick house offers just that! You can choose the base of your own choice and dip it in the syrup you like topped with nuts of your choice! Toh kar lo bachpan ki yaadein taaza at Stick house…its a small outlet located at Banjara hills with Italian Gelato Ice cream froze to very low temperatures. So beat the blues at this cozy little place 🙂 Yummiest stick Ice creams and delightful varieties!

5. Vac’s Pastries, Jubilee hills:

This place is literally a small wonder. Though its very small, the variety and quality of cakes, pasties, desserts & other confectionery they offer is very rich. One of my favorite place to have pastries.

IMG-20180605-WA0026

Exotic mango_ A lovely dessert with tangy taste of mango in the crispy shell & creamy core within. It was truly a delight to have it!

6. Gourmet Baklava, Banjara Hills:

So this is the only place in Hyderabad which serves baklava, a dessert which gets its flavor from the streets of Istanbul. This Turkish delicacy comes in many varieties.

Baklava is a rich, sweet dessert pastry made of layers of filo filled with chopped nuts and sweetened and held together with syrup or honey. They also serve kunafe, black coffee and Turkish tea. Its a small outlet with seating facility available. Its good to see the flavors of Turkey coming to our very own city.

7. Cafe Coffee Day:

This classic place has lots of varieties of coffees & desserts to offer..
