Long….long way to go.

A crisp early morning.Joggers,sporting their music, no other care in the world.Summer must be here.

First tube to depart from the station.Fresh news off the paper.Really?

A sprawling entrance.Automatic doors.An arcade.Fresh flowers.Office goers in the usual hurry scurry, coffees in hand and sporting their badges by that familiar blue.This must be it.

Lost, found.A grand round.A gastroenterologist who insists on finding an abdo correlation for a brain tumor.Specialists.

A well known battle ground.Several wounded.Many critical.Non productive temperaments. Comes with the territory.Tired.Hassled.Lost.Depressed.Please don’t give up on me now,I have tried really hard.

Eight hours later.Break.Bathroom break even nicer.Coffee,sandwich a boon.Coffee shop on the first floor.Wonder if M could be tracked.Its been a year since we last worked here together.

5 more hours to go.Will survive.Always have.

14 hours down.Frozen brain.Tired toes.Stiff body.No blunders commited.A happy soldier.
If you can’t help atleast don’t cause any harm.

Should do this more often.I love my job.

    Cogratulations on your job.I am impressed,when the whole world decides to retire you are still taking up a full time job.Yeah rest while you can.Good luck.

    The long day on-calls aren’t a daily happening.In this part of the world most junior doctors do an 8 hour shift on a daily basis.Oh, and even those 8 hours conks one out big time….Ahem, I’ll however accept the applause…:D

    Atul Sabnis:
    Hmm, I doubt one should ever do what they really don’t enjoy doing.Not only would it lack conviction, it will also lack quality of output.
