Sabbatical . . .

The last 100 days, I thought of taking a break from my blog . . . I hope the break is over. Part of the reason for the break was laziness.

Now, as I mull over what caused my laziness, part of the answer was that I did not seem to get a break from the routine work. Considering into fact that blogging was taking quite a lot of my time after the change in my work environment, I came to the conclusion that the first thing that I should forego was blogging.

While at NJH, my friends used to ask me when I got the time to blog. And the answer was in between the surgeries. There would not be time to go home and take a break, but there would be time to write a blog. Outpatient was not as busy with a better doctor patient ratio.

However, Kachhwa has been different. We see the same number of patients, but has a poor doctor patient ratio - which makes things different. 

So, major issues we had to grapple with over the last year at Kachhwa - 

1. Tuberculosis
2. Malaria
3. Systemic Hypertension and Diabetes
4. Care of the Elderly
5. Snakes bites which is of course coming down since winter is on . . . 

Shall write in detail about each of them . . . 

Well, the ultimate reason on why I took back to blogging. One of my friends retorted that the reason for my silence seems to be the perceptible change in environment within the country on putting across opinions and facts . . . 

As doctors, we are scientists and to voice out facts and our opinions on issues pertaining to healthcare is our mandate. Well, one could stifle them, but that would be at a heavy price . . .  

I hope I get the time to write . . .

Before I sign off, a small prayer sent to me by one of my seniors, with a small addition from my father in law -

May God bless us with discomfort at easy answers, half-truths and superficial relationships, so that we may live deep within our hearts.

May God bless us with anger at injustice, oppression and exploitation of people, so that we may work for justice, freedom and peace.

May God bless us with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, hunger and war, so that we may reach out our hands to comfort them and turn their pain into joy. 

And may God bless us with enough foolishness to believe that we can make a difference in this world, so that we can do what others claim cannot be done, to bring justice and kindness to all our children and the poor. 

And we pray for the gift of endurance to withstand all the above, such that inner transformation will happen to us all. 

Wishing you all a blessed 2016  - - -
