The Inside Story

How many of you are here… unwillingly ?

The question came as a shock. We were done with our tutorial session on Carbohydrate Metabolism and sat flipping through the volume of book. And all  of sudden our teacher, a senior resident, spoke.

This was not our first encounter with the question. We were greeted with the same question very first day,but today,  two month later, some answers had changed!

There was a boy who daily  regretted letting go his seat in IIT. (IIT is the most prestigious engineering college in India.)

One among  us, if given chance to rewrite his life, would have definitely opted commerce.  Not that medical syllabus doesn’t interest him, but life would have been must easier, he reasoned.

And there were ones who aspired to take Science and out of Medical and Engineering , the two most sought options, they decided the former.

I took a deep breath and reflected on my own decision. To be honest, Life as medical student is not that great ( it’s never going to be that fancy college life) but I know, with it’s ups and downs,  it’s going to be a great journey and I am really hopeful for it. 

(Someday I will definitely write an in-depth post regarding my medical life!)


The story of every student 😉
