Today has been the day that marked approx. three weeks into this year. Three weeks and still settling down in the new area, my new work place and oh yes, the new surroundings. The new hospital or care the primary care centre is that, one with very basic facilities. The nearest town being a mile away, it feels different being in this new place. Miles away from the endless clamouring of the city-life and surrounded by lush green fields, a real sight for those sore city eyes of mine. Life out here is different. I am the general practitioner out here at the medical mission hospital. With the very basic facilities here in the hospital, the daily “out-patient department and trauma centre” scenes are pretty much unpredictable. My daily prayer is that we would be able to offer timely help, patch ‘em up and refer to a higher centre, especially the trauma patients…. Though, in spite of the very frequent power breaks, the sweltering heat, the change of cuisine (it’s hot ‘n spicy now..), the lack of network coverage, stolen hours online by running over to the nearest town, the different culture and people….the hours as they go by teach me something new and interesting daily. From this little village in India, set by a lake and admist the hills they will be many more thoughts to share, though meanwhile I need to some how get the means to go “networking”. As I was reading through the new features of WordPress, saw the new plan for 2011, blogging daily and weekly. Hope there is something for “bi-weekliers”, like me.
Anyways for the next two years, I have got my hands tied up. Looks like life is going to be a handful out here. Meanwhile, I need all the luck and grace that I can hold on to….
