These days I am learining first aid. People say that doctors are next to god. And it feels good to know the basic of the doctors job. Imagine you are home or hanging out with friends and suddenly there is some mishap and someone faints or gets a heart attack or there is some accident and the blood doesn’t seem to stop and you know what to do so that the situation doesn’t get worst, until you get the patient to the nearest hospital.

            Today as we were practicing on a dummy model it gave a great pleasure to actually know what is our job and how you can save lifes.

            The reason to write this post is not to tell you about my experience on first aid but to urge you to join this as well.  It is really important for us to know all these small things. Accidents don’t happen with a earlier notification, it just happens. Well then you have to know how to tackle it intelligently and help the patient to recover or atleast be in peace till he reaches the hospital.

            You can also use it in a normal life like small wounds, cuts, or burns.

            Well I guess, everyone should learn first aid. It really help and gives you great satisfaction.




How to give artificial respiration.


-         first check if the person is breathing or not.

-         Then check his pulse

-         If the breathing has stopped, then clean his mouth with a clean cloth.

-         Close his nose and give him mouth to mouth respiration

-         Then current ration of how to give the respiration is 2:15 ie give the repiration 2 times and then give the cardiac massage 15times

-         After giving the respiration, pump his chest in the middle 15times

-         If the person is still unconscious repeat the same thing again.

My Favorite poem.

Around the corner I have a friend, 
In this great city that has no end, 
Yet the days go by and weeks rush on, 
And before I know it, a year is gone. 
And I never see my old friend's face, 
For life is a swift and terrible race,

He knows I like him just as well, 
As in the days when I rang his bell. 
And he rang mine but we were younger then, 
And now we are busy, tired men. 
Tired of playing a foolish game, 
Tired of trying to make a name. 
"Tomorrow" I say! "I will call on Jim 
Just to show that I'm thinking of him."

But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes, 
And distance between us grows and grows. 
Around the corner, yet miles away, 
"Here's a telegram sir,"…. "Jim died today."

And that's what we get, and deserve in the end: 
Around the corner, a vanished friend.

Quality > Quantity??? ( in a relationship )

 It was almost 2 yrs back, there was this friend of mine who used to play for our school football team. They used to have their practice everyday evening, and his guy who I am talking about had never missed any practice until the day when he met this girl. Yeah! It was the same old fling that he had for her and she used hang out near the place where these people used to have their practice. So things began to get messy and one day another friend of mine asked me if I knew why he was skipping practices so often?.

            I told her the reason. And all she said was tell him to watch high school musical. Well yeah, even I found no connection between the two topics initially, but when gave it a thought I got to know what she meant. Wasn’t it the same situation in the movie?? His basket ball practice and her scholastic competition together and yet they wanted time for each other.

            People say that when a guy or a girl falls in love they change. They don’t care for their friends they don’t care for anything around except the love of their life. And this is generally said that the girl changes the guy with all her tantrums. What I believe is, Its really not how people change its just the way of how people are compatible with each other how they just understand each other and give importance for one another.

             life is busy these days, and its really not easy to keep your loved once happy and give them the attention that they want. But all it takes is for you to learn how to manage things, how to manage your professional as well your personal life. 

            If you both are not able to spend time together often then there are soo many other small things that you can just do to make your partner feel better. Example – text him/her where he is or what he is doing or just one I love you will do wonders, or the next time you meet him/her get some chocolates or something that he/she likes, or a small gift ( for a girl, a rose or a ring will do the magic ),. Or just leave him/her a sweet love letter or a note in his/her bag or wallet just the place where your partner will find it easily when you are not around, you both can watch a movie together at your place holding each other cuddling with each other, or just a hug will do the magic in most of the time

            Honestly, I believe its not how much time you spend with your partner its how you spend the time.

            I had recently been to a family function few weeks back. After lunch all the relatives sat together for a short chat. It so happens that I happen to be the only girl in the family who will now turn to her so called “ marriageable age” rest all are either married or are two young to think about their marriage.

            So everyone just started off, according to them as soon as I complete my graduation my mom should start hunting for guys to get me married. The thing is, why cant our elders take the marriage thing with a ease?? Why are they always in a hurry to get the girl in their house married. I know there are problems for the girl if she does not get married in her right age. I know she has to face many taunts and everything. But that is what we should change.

            Cant a girl be given equal importance as a guy and allowed to earn some money and be independent why she has to be dependent on her man. And this so called marriageable age ie 25 to 30..why is that supposed to be there. This is where education matters, and this is where I feel west is the place to live. In India the child is dependent on their parents till his / her’s 30s. where as in west the child is independent on his 18th bday itself. So here is the calculation. In India, a person should get married by 25yrs of age so by his or her’s 30 they will have a child of approx 2 to 3 yrs of age. So by the time the parents turn 60 and get retired the child is around 30yrs of age. So the parents support their child till his 30th, and then as the parents turn 60 and get retired all the responsibilities of supporting the family comes on the childs shoulder and that is it. It will be his first job or just the starting, so the salary wont be much and then poverty will come in picture.  Whereas if there were more opportunities in here for children to start working as they get 18 this wont be the picture.

            Another thing is, the idea of arrange marriage, you meet some complete  unknown guy, and then decide to get married to him. Without knowing much about his past his character his friends and family. Obviously when he is meeting you he will be at his best and wont show any bad side of him to you. But isn’t it important to know how he is in his day to day life? This is why I feel love marriage is better, like you know the guy very well you know how compatable you are with him.

            And with the understanding between you too you both will support eachother as well.

            Love marriage vs arrange marriage, this is one question that can never be solved it depends of individual thinking. But I belive education will play and important role in solving this question.

Age Diffrence!

I always belived that if u date someone elder to you, you will have differences in thoughts and views and also to some extend will be difficult to handle the relation. Then I met this guy. And he sort off made me feel that I was wrong and that even with a age difference the relationship can still work out.
But as it went on, it never workes. He was a bit shy type of a guy and was not at all romantic and all. I had seen many of my male friends who changed themselves for their better half’s and are now happy with them. I have even seen people be in a serious relationship for 3 to 4 yrs at a strech and are still going fine. So when I met this guy I initially let him do what he wants so he can feel comfortable and gave him his space, thinking once he is okay with the girlfriend thing he will be normal and be a normal boyfriend. But that never happened he started to take me for granted, his behaviour changed .
Why all guys have to think that they are the one to rule. They cnt respect for what their girls think. Nor do they show as if they care. What on earth is their problem?? I really don’t know, what I am writing right now. But it’s the only way I have to take the my anger out. Or I wish I just get a chance to bash those people who I hate!
Seriously all the guys who are reading this, please learn to respect your girl atleast sometimes in your life.
