Infinite Loop…..

We often hear people saying “History always repeats itself “. But this question does haunt me but why, why our past, our history tends to always repeat? And sometimes even in a more disastrous way. Have you also thought about this? Is it earth’s way or human’s own ignorance be the reason, leading to so much devastation which may have been prevented or is it unsatisfaction or very high ambitions of few, but I would again say, Earth will survive, she had survived in past too sometimes in conditions you would ever think of, it will be in future too, but we humans might not or we might evolve, or might be replaced by some other organism, we don’t know anything and future is always uncertain and its survival of fittest, after all, we also have replaced the mighty dinosaurs, etc once ruling the earth, some completely lost existence, some evolved, few which remain, we humans have killed them gradually.

Ok, coming back to what happened in the past, you all have heard of Spanish flu, Bubonic plague outbreak, a cholera outbreak and most in recent in past influenza or swine flu, and if I say, at that time, they caused so much loss of lives, you would even imagine, current COVID 19 is still very far from it, but again we can’t say anything about future. My matter of concern is Have we learned anything from the past. Do you also want to be remembered in history, as we remember them, not successful in controlling it efficiently and not learning from the mistakes? Some might now say, that time medical science was not that developed, superstition was there, people were not that educated that much, lack of awareness, etc, I agree with you totally. But answer me, are most of the people not superstitious today also, and to the much, of it how this all and fake news spread on social media at the speed of light, cause more havoc, don’t you think so, everybody, some with zero knowledge about the subject, gives the valuable advice and opinions.

Every one of you is also aware of the world wars, we all have read about them during history classes. After the 1st World war, people had said, this kind of war would not occur again but what happened in the next 4 years, World war 2, more destructive even than 1, more than one-third population on earth vanished, yes, there were reasons why it happened but, are these first time, no not at all, before that too, few over-ambitious beings existed, conquering the whole earth, few even every cruel. I always fail to understand, ok, you conquered the whole world, become sole leader, what’s next, attacking another planet, as you will never be satisfied after all. To our more dismay, history might gonna repeat itself again, as we are on verge of another war, don’t know, how much destruction it will lead too, hoping it will not occur.

I don’t know, they are authentic or not but I have watched many videos and documentaries on time travel, I do believe we will do this in future, but there were few people who claimed to have traveled from future, defining so many things and advancement of future but if this is true, why they did not make us aware of this pandemic or future has been altered or they traveled from an alternate reality if existed or its all fake if they would have, things might be different after all.

There is so much negativity and unrest around, that it does become difficult to calm and a lot of questions arises in our minds, we still searching answers for, but it is sure if we don’t learn from our history or past, it will keep on repeating, its an infinite loop which will never end, we don’t even know its beginning, so forget about the ending I guess. We, humans, are just a small part of this mysterious universe, with the most uncertain future. These virus, bacteria, microorganisms etc and our earth will exist than also.

Today is Father’s Day!!!!!

Today is Father’s Day and I have seen everybody posting pictures and messages for their dads on various social media platforms, but I have not posted anything till now, not even at any platform ( I might have but currently I do not have any 😂😂as on break from them except WordPress, as it is different from rest ) ok, ok, I am going off the topic so ya, I am talking about Father’s Day. I am not gonna write any poem or anything for my Dad, here, Today I am here to talk about something else but in regard to father’s day only but before this let me wish my dad and all other father’s out there Happy Father’s Day.

So every year whenever when father’s day or mother’s day comes we shower all our love on our parents, posting pictures, writing long messages, etc on all the social media platforms, whatever it is Fb, WhatsApp, Instagram, etc is full with it. But my matter of concern is not this at all, there are many people out there, who does not mean a bit of it they posted and just everybody is posting, they also do so to gain view, to show how they care, etc. They may have not spoken a word to their parents, wishing them in person, I know, it’s the 21st century but still, many parents still do’not use social media or are not that active so what’s the point on showing love and respect when they cannot see or feel it.

If you are thinking, Era is gone mad why I am talking like this, why am I judging people but I am not judging anybody, I am saying what I have seen and felt? I am not against posting pictures and messages we should all do that, but answer me one question Is one day enough to thank our parents for whatever they have done for us, do we should not respect them each day, yes, they are important and I am saying you, when you actually needed, you will only find your parents by your side because anyone can leave us but parents never. They held your back always. And you also know this.

Ok, answer me, one more question, do our parents wait for any day, oh, today I will do this for my son or daughter as today is daughter’s day or son’s day. They never do that, so why we do this, why don’t we care for them every day, they are doing this for you before you are even born, have they ask you anything in return for this, and even if they ask, how many of you can return that favor, but, you can do a little by showing them little love, care, and most importantly respect.

Yes, there is a generation gap between us, I have seen three generations and analyzed I mean my parents and my grandparents, and our present time and there is a huge difference the viewpoint of among all on few things but that does not mean that they are wrong or we are right or vice versa, they are saying this, from what they have seen and learned, before reacting, stop a bit, analyses and think and talk with them, they will surely understand and also maybe they are right and we are thinking wrong on something, they are obviously more experienced than us. My parents always ask mine and my brother views on many things, sometimes they agree on that, sometimes not, but this is beneficial for both as both can learn new things, don’t you think so.

There are many children who don’t have parents, have lost them, some even don’t have seen them even once, so, if we are privileged to have our parents with us, why are you taking them for granted, why many send their parents to old age homes or why they left them alone, or why do you not respect them, then, again, you will post a picture on social media and say we love and care our parents, do you see, I am not at all, saying not to post but show them this in real life too not only on your virtual life and please stop judging those who don’t post anything, it is not important, not at all important.

I don’t know, what I have written and just these thoughts are going on in my mind, I just pen it down, and I am again saying, I know not saying everybody is like that and not judging anybody but there are still many who does not mean a word but still post, my matter of concern is that. Again, I know, there are many factors associated but still.

In short, what I mean is, not one day is enough for parents, everyday is, what we are today is only because of them, and who think, what they have done is done by everybody, it’s their duty so , please my duty lovers fellow, it is your duty too to take care of them. Think before you speak and do what you expect from others first.

I am sorry if I have hurt anybody. Thank you for reading it.

Acceptance!!!!!

Can you define what actually happiness means? Is feeling sad or sorrowful or disheartened about anything that makes you look weak? Is feeling depressed ok? Being happy or unhappy about anything is all in your mind. The bitter truth of life is every one of us always wants happiness without a single moment of suffering. But can you ever know what actually success is if you never ever tasted the failure? Can light has its importance if there will not be any darkness? Similarly, if you do not what it feels like being sad, how will you know what actually true happiness or satisfaction feels like? You will never value the things that come easy and will always take them for granted.

I have read the following lines somewhere and find them so appropriate –

“EVERYONE WANTS HAPPINESS
NO ONE WANTS PAIN
BUT YOU CAN’T HAVE A RAINBOW
WITHOUT A LITTLE RAIN”

The reality is there is no such thing as constant happiness. You are a human being and you do have emotions and you do feel. It is absolutely ok not to feel happy all time or to feel depressed. Every emotion in life has its equal importance whether you feel elated or disappointed and this balance has to be maintained. Isn’t it amazing how complex a human nature can be and how our mind, our thinking, our emotions, our feelings, our actions interplay among themselves? It is just if we understand that the way we feel about a situation will change over time as our perceptions and perspectives will change as we grow and understand more and come across more things, gain experiences and our thinking and viewpoint will vary. So, how momentarily that happiness or sadness will become that you may be happy about things you are sad about today and vice versa is also true.

Once CHARLIE CHAPLIN had said
“LIFE IS A TRAGEDY WHEN SEEN IN A
CLOSE UP BUT A COMEDY IN LONG SHOT”

Experience, you gained will be the only thing that will be with you always that will guide you in your future. Maybe things which are not making any sense now will make perfect sense in the future when you will be more wise and courageous to understand things better. Few questions in present should be left unanswered and you should keep ,patience as at the end of any pain, a greater reward awaits just like that after every dark night, the sun always rises. It is our state of mind, how we deal and react in various situations, our external and internal conflicts that define our happiness. You cannot control each and everything that happens in your life but how to act and your attitude it is in your hand.

According to ALBERT EINSTEIN, the great scientist –
“IF YOU WANT TO LIVE A HAPPY LIFE,
TIE IT TO A GOAL, NOT TO THE PEOPLE OR
THINGS.”

Most of the people tend to find happiness in other people or things and become dependent on them to be happy or sad, that if I get that I will be happy etc., that is attach conditions. But remember, happiness is a choice, nothing can make you happy. It is your decision, it does not go or come from anywhere or from anything, and it is your feeling that come from within you. It means to accept all your perfections as well as imperfections. Acceptance of every situation that come in your way whether you feel disconsolate or ecstatic about it , as it will give you more gain in long term . Finding happiness in small small deeds will one day lead to bigger prospective. Happy and focused people tend to feel more positive and rather than crying what life throws on them, they focus on betterment.

And, we all know, what goes around, comes around. Always try to spread happiness and positivity. That is power of our mind that what we think manifest our feelings and how we act defines the rest and nothing can be more destructive for us and world than our thoughts.

LORD BUDDHA, has said
“THERE IS NO PATH TO HAPPINESS, HAPPINESS IS
THE PATH.”

In the end, just remember your happiness does not depend on anything, your relations, your money, your job, your house, any place or thing, etc. It is from you, for you. Happiness or sadness just interplay in our mind, associations it forms between our unconscious desires, wishes, regrets, guilt, etc, and our conscious thinking that decides how we think, feel, and act.

You are not victim!!!!!

One of the most complex things to understand is human nature. And a lot more still to be done to understand it fully but I don’t think we will ever be able to be decode it. But, today, my topic of concern is that aspect of human nature which made us think, we are victims.Do you actually think, humans the so called most intelligent being in planet earth is a victim?

It is a very common tendency we see among people, who are always crying, why it is happening with me ?, why only I have to face all these? What was my fault? It is due to circumstance, or time or due to some other person, nobody understands me what I am going through, it was written in my destiny, it is my bad luck, etc, Basically excuses and the tendency of projecting themselves as victims as if everything is happening in there life and everybody’s life is perfect without any problem except them as it is rightly said GRASS IS ALWAYS MORE GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE.

And, they crib over it again and again and somehow they also find people who rather than advising them to do something productive or make them understand the truth, they also start treating them as victims, a human defense mechanism to run away from reality and his inability to accept the truth. As it will create an illusion and make us feel, it like truth far away from reality, even exempt our mind to think on different perspectives, Every coin has 2 sides after all, why to focus on one side it becomes a vicious cycle, that it is gonna happen as my destiny is like that, everything, everyone is against me, etc, First of all, stop treating as if the whole world revolves around you, you are the tiny part of this vast infinite universe and not the whole thing is related to you, Everybody is fighting their own battle, some you can see but many are invisible.

For example, I have seen people crying over like why always my cycle gets a puncture, I was like seriously, you are a victim of this, many don’t even have it. I have seen people crying over that their whole body is aching, they got a fever, etc and victimized themselves as nobody is more ill than them, please pay a visit to the emergency department of the hospital where people are fighting for their lives. Yours is still treatable, I know it must be not good or someone can judge me on saying this but still. Please visit ICU or waiting rooms, you will people who are in even deadlier situations, some with no cure sometimes. Have you ever visited any cancer patient undergoing chemotherapy how painful that procedure is, how you ever talked to that person who got AIDS due to ignorance of some other being? Can you imagine the mental trauma, he or his family might be facing? And I can list many things like that, but yes, you are the real victims of the victim, so no offense after all.

I am not saying, people don’t suffer, or they don’t have problems, I am just trying to point out those who see more sufferings then blessings they have which other people might not have but still happy or doing something to gain it. They will see what they don’t get but will not value what they have, always unsatisfied or basically have a habit of only sobbing, and trying to gain sympathy and attention sometimes over the slightest things and don’t like to hear anything which is against them. Stop behaving victims always, get up, do work change it to victory, try to find the solutions of your problems, and value what you have before it will also go and you again feel more victimized.

I can write more on it but I will stop myself here,as it will become a very long post, in the end just want to say to human victims, who think humans are victims of nature, owing to coronavirus, floods, cyclones, earthquakes, many other deadly diseases, etc just think once, what have you done with nature, with animals, etc, just see the most recent case of the mother elephant, do you still think humans are victims? And yes, how can I forget, humans when don’t value other humans life why they will think of animals, or anything else no doubt, humans are the most dangerous animal and I think nature will do something later, humans themselves will kill each other, destroy his whole existence themselves but still will not be happy.

When something happens with you, oh, why it is happening with me and you forget what you yourself have done, See, heaven and hell are all on earth itself, your Karma always plays a role. when nature is taking troll on us now, stop treating yourself as victims you yourself is responsible for it somehow and due to this, innocents are also suffering .Still a time, think, please think about it.

Thank you for reading and do share with me your thoughts in the comment sections.

चाह

“मैं बंद पिंजरे में बैठा
हमेशा यही सोचता
क्या जीवन है मेरा
इतनी जंजीरो से बंधा
कैसी होगी वो बाहर की दुनिया
दिनभर बस यही सोचता
मेरे सपने कब होंगे पूरे
कब मैं बाहर आ पाऊंगा
कुछ डर जाता,सहम जाता
जब कोई रास्ता नजर ना आता
पर फिर भी उड़ाने की चाह मैं रखता । “
© ईरा सिंह

मैंने यह कविता बहुत पहले मन में आने वाले अनेकों सवालो के संधर्ब में लिखी थी । कैसे हम आपने सपनो को पूरा करने के लिए हमेशा मेहनत करते है कभी कभी कुछ सपने पूरे होते है कुछ नही पर हमे कभी भी उम्मीद नही छोड़नी चाहिए

मैनें इस कविता को मेरे लेख क्या कोरोना भगवान का प्रकोप है या मानव उत्तपन आपदा ? में भी प्रयोग किया था परंतु वहां उसका संधर्ब बिल्कुल अलग था ।

मुझे लगा कि ये कविता एक नई पोस्ट में शेयर करनी चाहिए। आशा करती हूं आपको पसंद आई होगी ।

Thank you for reading it !!!!!!!

Stay safe , Stay healthy!!!!!

Just A Thought!!!!!

So, I was lately studying viruses and one thing that come to my mind is how much less we know about them, I mean as compared to bacteria, fungi, etc, we don’t have much information about them. Coronavirus might be just the beginning of the chaos. It is not the only virus around, there are still a lot hidden and unidentified and ones that are discovered or identified, we don’t have much information about them.

I still remember, in our 2nd year of M.B.B.S, when MICROBIOLOGY was one of the main subjects, how much less we have about viruses in our textbook except the few most common ones, rabies, and dengue, etc. Even some viruses just have a para or two, and coronavirus genera are one of them, to which current SARS-COV2(new strain) belongs. It was written in the textbook it causes the common cold, 2nd most common cause after rhinoviruses and from University point of view, it was never an important topic to be asked in exams and “we were like, common cold h to KR wata hai, puch Bhi Liya to, like de khud h, itna Jada syllabus hai, Wo khatam ho Jaye ” and when I remember these lines today, I just can’t believe, how this not so important virus has to lead the world on the back foot, that everybody is helpless. And one thing we all should learn never to underestimate anyone.

So, what it can be due to? Is it our ignorance that we don’t do much research on them? Why the government don’t spend money on research work in the medical field? Maybe if more money and time spent on the research of so many hidden microorganisms and even known once, we would have handled the current situation is a much better way. I am afraid, that maybe, it is just the beginning. There are a lot of deadly viruses, that we still don’t know about, that can cause, death within hours, in that sense, coronavirus, does not seem to be that deadly, if we don’t focus on it now, world might end due to the one that can not even survive on their own ( virus need a host for their survival, they just have genetic material and proteins, if we talk in simple language)

Still, there are people, who will think, there are a lot more problems to deal with, but simply answer me, if you are not healthy or if you die, will your that dreams make any sense. yes, there are a lot of other problems, we should focus on them, but why ignore it. And what troubles more, where the youth going, they are more concerned about which is better, TikTok or YouTube?or any other political thing or just the things, I don’t want to talk about here. Seriously, are those things important to you. You have talent, you have a brain, why not to use it in some good way. I am not saying, just go and start research or anything, but you can help in many other ways too.

Just give it a thought, and do share me, what you think, in the comment.

Thank you so much for reading it 😊

Conflicts

You can not do this? Have you ever look yourself in the mirror, you look fat, ugly, you are not beautiful at all, said, someone. Why don’t you exercise, lose some weight, behave that way, you are a girl, do not do this or do that? You are good for nothing.

Suddenly, she looks around who is saying this to her but no one is seen.

She thought does outer beauty is what that always matter? Why people tend to judge everybody but it is also true, I do not look beautiful at all, far from the society norms, she started feeling depressed again and start eating as eating relieves her stress. She is eating even when she knows she doesn’t have to and this, in turn, causing more depression to her.

Then, came the voice again, don’t listen to her, she doesn’t want you to succeed, you are capable of accomplishing anything you want. Why are you eating this much, you are beautiful, people have to say something, don’t listen to them, everybody, you come across, loves you, don’t you see that, looks don’t matter and why are you torturing yourself please don’t do this to yourself.

Now, she starts becoming more restless, what is happening, is she gone mad, she is actually hearing voices.

These voices are not of people but they are coming from her inner mind. Those are reflections of thoughts that are going in her mind, those two perspectives of society she heard all her life. Nobody asked her, what she wants, everybody want her to become as they like her to see and in this process, she becomes like that, lonely and depressed, who does not love herself or afraid of doing anything, and does not like to talk much and doubt every single person she met and more importantly she lost her true self and she has lost her confidence.

She needs help, but whom to ask, she doesn’t know as sympathy and empathy is different and she does not think anyone can ever understand her or even will try to understand her even once .


Today, mental health has become, one serious issue, and we as a society are very much responsible for it. Why it is difficult to accept someone as they are, why we have to judge someone on their looks, ignoring their rest capabilities, and make them feel undesirable. They, start, self-doubting themselves and we lost one another life to depression, and unknowing what we take as a casual remark can actually cause an adverse effect on someone ‘s mind.

TYPES OF PEOPLE IN OPD

Can you guess what kind of people you come across in OPD ( OUTPATIENT DEPARTMENT ) in government hospitals? You must be thinking, why Era is asking such a stupid question, obviously, people who come to OPD are sick, in need of any medical help, maybe suffering from any disease or might have come for their routine check-up. Yes, you all are thinking right, but I can even categorize them.

1.Dr.Google’s assistant

These are patients, who follow Dr. google religiously and why not that person sitting there, who have studied for so many years, he actually does not know anything.

I can share one example, so I was sitting in medicine opd during my internship, there comes a lady, I was busy checking the B.p of one of the patients, she comes there and waited, till I got free, then I asked her, what happened? She said, Dr, I have these symptoms, and I have googled it is this disease, and this is the medicine what is the dose and is it is correct, I was in shock, literally shock, I thought to myself, why you come here, Google the dose too, then I told her after a think, calm, although, I want to scream, Mam, I am just junior doctor, and don’t have much knowledge about it, do please go to the sir’s cabin. she went there. Actually, I intentionally want her to go to the sir because he knows how to handle them and instructed us for it too.

2.Over Anxious

So, these patients or their relatives are over thinkers and for them a normal headache is brain tumor or cough is lung cancer, this list can go on. They ask us to write all possible tests available. It, sometimes, becomes very difficult to make them understand, tests are not always needed.

3. Those come with their whole family

So, with them their whole family come with a single person and then begins the real thing, they will ask you so sweetly “ab Iska Bhi check-up krdo”, ” dr Sahab AAP Inka Bhi bp check krdo”, “mere bete ko KAL Raat Ek chkh as gyi the koi dawai bta do “, etc etc. And whether there is a long queue outside still you can not deny them.

4.Silent observers

So, these are not patients, actually, reporters, as they just observe what you are doing, whether we are denying any patient, or have we taken tea and there is a line outside opd room, dr is not even allowed to drink water according to them.

I can share one incidence, so medicine opd timings are 8 am to 2 pm, and it’s already around 3 pm and we all are still sitting in opd, seeing patients, it’s already 1 hr Above and pts are still there, so resident boss asked to close the door as opd has to be shut now and asked the patients to go to the emergency as he is going there for his duty, he does not even deny them treatment, sitting there since morning, have not eaten anything, still, without resting, he asked them to come there, next day, what we see in the newspaper that ” dr ne Kiya opd ka door band ” at least print the truth

5.Repeaters

These are people who just come to repeat their medicine nothing else

6.old age cuties

They are my personal favorite. They talk with so much care and their blessings always make my day.

7.Thieves

They owing to the crowd, steal money, mobile, etc anything

8.simple ones

When they come and go we don’t even know

9.Question Bank

They carry with them a never-ending list of questions and most of them sometimes are totally irrelevant

10.Gossip aunties

So, other than, medicine and treatment, they have an interest in knowing about everything else From where we belong, when will we marry etc etc

And list can go on, will continue in next

I hope you all enjoyed reading this, and not got bored, I does not want to hurt anybody or judging them, it is just for fun, I have written it and all patients are always equal for a Dr.

Thank you for reading it .
