As I made my way to the male psychiatry ward I knew at once that all was not right. Of course it didn’t take a Sherlock to figure this out. For the screams could be heard all the way up to the beginning of the corridor. On entering the ward, the chaos was palpable. There… Continue reading You do not need to suffer
What is Perfect?
Perfect. The one word that I have grappled with for more than half of my existence. This seemingly innocent seven letter word has been able to have a hold on my life way more than I would like to admit. The Oxford English dictionary defines the word perfect as having all the required or desirable… Continue reading What is Perfect?
July 9th and the Aftermath
On the 9th of July we witnessed history in the making. Irrespective of whether President Gotabaya Rajapkse and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe keep their word or not we as a nation have succeeded. We have succeeded in sending a message to the current politicians (both the ruling and opposition party), to the future politicians of… Continue reading July 9th and the Aftermath
To keep up or not to keep up with the Kardashians
A little more than a decade ago Justin Bieber the teen heart throb of many young teens and preteens back in the day including yours truly declared to the world his crush on a certain lady who went by the name “Kim Kardashian”. Apart from the fact that her name was a mouthful, 14 year… Continue reading To keep up or not to keep up with the Kardashians
Bend in the road?
As a little girl my parents instilled in me the mantra that hard work always pays off. Having a sponge like nature which is characteristic in the youngest child (where they learn/absorb everything from the environment and other people's experience) I took this to heart. I always valued hard work and I always tried… Continue reading Bend in the road?
“The Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka”
It’s been a while since I put my pen to paper or rather put my keyboard to a word document! Since I last posted many changes have taken place. For instance, Russia invaded Ukraine while the whole world watched with bated breath wondering if it would be the catalyst for the third world war. Well… Continue reading “The Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka”
Equality between men and women is something that I believe in with all my heart. It was what I was taught at home, it was what I was taught at school and it was what I saw my favourite celebrities advocating for. If I'm being really honest with myself I didn't really face any inequality… Continue reading Dear Society,
After all this time? Always
It was the year 2002, the day, just an ordinary day, a day you'd least expect anything strange, mysterious or magical to happen. My sister and I were getting ready to watch a movie with my cousin brother. We didn't know what it was but he assured us that we would like it and we… Continue reading After all this time? Always
This year I turned the big 25. Some days it seems like it was only yesterday that I was making fairy gardens and playing dress up with my cousin. While some days I feel like I really have aged and have become wiser and older. But in no way do I feel and if I… Continue reading 25
MBBS in a nutshell
If I'm being totally honest with myself when I decided I wanted to become a doctor I had no idea about the medical curriculum. Don't get me wrong I wasn't a total noob I mean I had a vague idea, about what I would be studying but it was just a rough sketch. I had… Continue reading MBBS in a nutshell
