Saturday Story: Know your worth..

A father before he died said to his son: “This is a watch your grandfather gave me, and it’s more than 200 years old. But before I give it to you, go to the watch shop on the first street, and tell him I want to sell it, and see how much he offers you.“
He went, and then came back to his father, and said, “The watchmaker offered $5 because it’s old.“

He said to him: “Go to the coffee shop.“ He went and then came back, and said: “He offered $5 father.“
“Go to the museum and show them that watch.“ He went then came back, and said to his father “They offered me $1 million for this piece.“

The father said: “I wanted to let you know that the right place values you in the right way. Don’t find yourself in the wrong place and get angry if you’re not valued. Those that know your value are those who appreciate you, don’t stay in a place where nobody sees your value.“

Chronicles of Yellowie & Vader: A Lovely Beach Date

I followed my heart, and it led me to this beach. This is my home, it’s sand will welcome me as my mother’s open arms. The breezes from the ocean stirs my heart, inspires my imagination and brings eternal joy to the soul.

The Chronicles of Yellowie&Vader_ Beach Date (1)

The best and most beautiful things in the world must be  felt with heart.

It is a great place to relieve the soul-crushing stress. I sit here quietly & escape the hustle bustle of city life. It instantly eases all the worries I have.

Letting my tyres sink in the sand and swinging my vipers over my front glass, I drive down the empty beach that I am very lucky to have all to myself and enjoy the breeze.

“Happiness is a day at beach with my love.”-Yellowie

There are a lot of reasons why this beach is my favorite place to be..

1. Bright blue skies and blue water of the ocean,
2. The sound of the mighty waves crashing up against the shore
3. As it is a place less explored, the privacy it gives me is the biggest reason for me to love this place a lot.

“For me life is nothing but.. sky above, sand below and you beside.” -Yellowie

I’m very clear in my mind that I’m not gonna share this beauty with anyone else on this planet. To protect its beauty and to save my privacy I never shared it with anyone till now.

“A smile on your face, a shell on my top and sand on my tyres is happiness for me.” – Vader

But today, this is going to change. My boy car-friend my majestic blue ‘Vader’, my favorite car in the whole world, is on his way here to meet me. It’s been 1 month since I’ve met him. I kind of miss him and I can’t wait to make every moment we spend on this beach special..

“Our Love made our life worthwhile.” -Yellowie

Our relationship over the past couple of months has evolved into something so beautiful, something perfect. It’s still difficult sometimes for me to believe that we are perfect together.

A few minutes later, I see him driving toward me, honking cutely. I was circling the beach in joy to greet him.

Saturday Story: Focus on the good things in life

Two friends were walking through the desert. At one stage in their journey, they had an argument and one friend slapped the other one in the face.

The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything he wrote in the sand, ‘Today my best friend slapped me in the face.’

They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to have a wash. The one who had been slapped got stuck in a mire and started drowning, but his friend saved him. After he had recovered from his shock, he wrote on a stone, ‘Today my best friend saved my life.’

The friend who slapped and saved his best friend asked him, ‘After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now, you write in stone, why?’

The other friend replied, ‘When someone hurts us we should write it down in sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever erase it.’

A poem reflecting our lives during this pandemic: ‘Timeless’

And people stayed at home

And read books

And listened

And they rested

And did exercises

And made art and played

And learned new ways of being

And stopped and listened

More deeply

Someone meditated, someone prayed

Someone met their shadow

And people began to think differently

And people healed.

And in the absence of people who

Lived in ignorant ways

Dangerous, meaningless and heartless,

The earth also began to heal

And when the danger ended and

People found themselves

They grieved for the dead

And made new choices

And dreamed of new visions

And created new ways of living

And completely healed the earth

Just as they were healed.

~ Catherine M.O’ Meara

World Tuberculosis day 2020: It’s TIME..

World Tuberculosis(TB) day is commemorated on 24th March to raise public awareness about devastating health, social and economic consequences of TB, and to step up efforts to end global TB epidemic. In 1882 March 24th, Dr. Robert Koch discovered TB Bacilli, which is responsible for this deadly disease. His discovery was a breakthrough in diagnosing and curing this disease.

Robert Koch

Dr. Robert Koch identified the specific causative agents of tuberculosis, cholera, and anthrax and also gave experimental support for the concept of infectious disease. For his research on tuberculosis, Koch received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1905.

TB remains the world’s deadliest infectious killer. Each day, over 4000 people lose their lives to TB and close to 30,000 people fall ill with this preventable and curable disease. Global efforts to combat TB have saved an estimated 58 million lives since the year 2000. India is determined to eliminate TB by 2025, we need more participation from the community to spread awareness about the early diagnosis and completion of  TB treatment. So be a leader for a TB-free world.

We made a short film on the awareness of Tuberculosis in 2018. Our small effort to make this short film won us awards in the national and state level given by Indian association of preventive and social medicine (IAPSM). We won 2nd prize in the national level & 1st prize in the state level.

As doctors we do our job by trying to spread awareness in every way possible, be it in the hospital, in family, amongst friends or in the society by making such a video. I hope and intend to keep spreading awareness by means of short films or other modalities possible. kindly LIKE and SHARE the video as much as you can and contribute your part for a TB-free world.

Happy Holi- ‘The Festival of Colors’

Holi – The Festival Of Colors celebrated in every part of India signifies victory of good over evil. Each and every festival of India has its own significance, If we talk about Holi, it’s all about celebration of overcoming your fears or transformation of negativity to positivity in life, whether it’s repairing broken relationships, Victory Of Good Over Evil, End Of Winter season over arrival of spring, Play and laugh, Forget and forgive etc.

I wish this Holi all colors of rainbow make your life more colourful, joyful. Happy Holi. — Life is very beautiful and colorful, may this Holi add more love and color to your life and your family.

?????????????????????

History behind this festival:

Holi has derived from the demon king Hiranyakashyap’s sister ”Holika”. Hiranyakashyap had a blessing from the Lord Vishnu that he won’t get killed by any animal or human being and he wants everyone to worship him rather than any other god which made him angry because of his own son ”Prahlad” worship Lord Vishnu knowingly of his father wants him to be worshipped.

Hiranyakashyap attempted so many ways to kill his own son but keep on getting failed miserably, Firstly he made his own son jump in a well but he remained unscathed. He also poisons him which becomes nectar to Prahlad, ordered wild elephants to kill him but remained unharmed, He  also put him in a room with full of wild snakes but still, he gets out of it uninjured. He was so disappointed that he has to get help from his demon sister Holika

Holika, Then made Prahlad sit with her in a fire in order to hurt him, Whereas she put blanket around herself in order to protect herself from fire, Fortunately, blanket flew over to Prahlad and Holika got burnt alive, That is why we celebrate Holika Dahan – Victory of good over evil – a night before Holi. Afterwards, Lord Vishnu came to earth in form of half lion and half man, Killed Demon King Hiranyakashyap.
