Punch Line: "I believe that sometimes we also survive because of accident." (I believe, this letter will answer many of our questions about accidents and life's uncertainties and make us wonder why we were wasting time worrying about some of them, before and after. Let's join the doctor in believing that life goes on inspite of us and not because of us. We can raise the happiness quotient by always remaining optimistic and grateful, and trying to remain fit and active to the extent feasible. One takeaway is, "Keep the vehicle in roadworthy condition, to the extent feasible"-M G Warrier) Read on... Dear Dr Aniruddh Trivedi 10 years back on December 7th 2010 you operated on me to replace my sclerotic aortic valve. Some had advised me, probably rightly so, against surgery because of my advanced age. But I chose surgery to a life of restriction and constant anxiety. Death during surgery was a possibility but comparatively an enviable choice for me. You had done my CABG in 2002 and given me 18 years of active life. I will soon be 90! I performed my last operation, excision of a choledochal cyst, in 2010 but continued with consulting practice till the arrival of Corona virus. I travelled a lot, gave lectures in surgical conferences, even went abroad just to travel, meet friends, to visit old places and of course, to the pubs to spend lazy times. I wrote my autobiography in Marathi which won 6 literary awards. It was on the best seller list for 16 weeks and is now being broadcast on YouTube by All India Radio (so far 27 episodes are over). I have enjoyed such a rich life and a long time with family and friends because of your healing knife. I have been a seasoned patient. I had typhoid in 1943. The fever lasted for 47 days and I lived because I did not die. It was in pre-antibiotic era, when cold sponging for high fever, hot water bag for shivering and nil by mouth, was the standard treatment. I broke my ulna while playing Kabaddi ; no X-ray was taken and plastering was done by our family physician from Belgaum. The healing was perfect. I had two car accidents, in one, 4 died, I escaped with Colles’ fracture. I believe that sometimes we also survive because of accident. You would appreciate why doctors who have faced grave illnesses feel special gratitude to the life saver. (I remember during an OBGYN post, when a lady medical student scolded one young primi-para shouting during delivery not to make noise; the patient replied, “ you will know when you will have your first delivery!” ) Please remember me to Dr Arun Chaukar, Drs Panna, Vasundhara Atre, Jyotsna Meshri, Sanjay Wagle, Kalmath and Sujata Mehta ( who pushed oxygen in my lungs when I had pulmonary oedema after CT scan ) and Sumeet Singhania. Dr Amit Vora inserted a pace maker for total heart block in 2008 and replaced it in 2018. I am in a departure lounge of life for quite some time and therefore I suspect a third pacemaker, due in 2028, is unlikely to gain entry in me. I was lucky that I worked as Honorary in G T hospital ( part of JJ Hospital group ) for 25 years. I had no roots in Bombay and the waiting period was a nightmare, but the compensation was a teaching hospital where patients were waiting for me. Top rankers from Grant Medical College chose my unit for surgical training and that is how Dr Anand Nande met me. 18 years after starting practice I was appointed to Bombay Hospital, a great institute where I was given a free hand for work and it took my name all over the country. It was an enviable experience to meet leaders in the profession. My colleague Dr Kishore Adyanthaya has been standing like a rock beside me during my work as well as during every health emergency including pulmonary oedema and heart attacks. I was singularly lucky and blessed to have association of dedicated individuals like Drs Kishore and Anand for over 3 decades. I must mention one unexpected event that occurred in the evening before my operation. I was in an introspective mood thinking that perhaps that was the last evening of my life; there was a sense of finality. Then you came to my room, touched my feet and asked for my blessings for the next day’s operation. I was moved, speechless and felt that this could perhaps occur only in India, a surgeon seeking blessing from patient. I have an imported pace maker and aortic valve in my heart but I am Indian at heart, proud of our ancient heritage. May God bless you. Dr. V. N.

Thanks to him for providing some such lighter moments, as the same are most needed nowadays. The 'Human Life' could be akin to some 'Pandora Box' which usually remains full of mysteries, adversities as also some lovely yet magical moments too.

Leisure Contact and Connection* A Monk of the Ramakrishna Mission was being interviewed by a journalist from New York. The journalist started interviewing the Monk as planned earlier. Journalist - "Sir, in your last lecture, you told us about "Contact" and "Connection." It's really confusing. Can you please explain?" The Monk smiled and apparently deviating from the question asked the journalist: "Are you from New York?" Journalist: "Yeah..." Monk: "Who are there at home?" The Journalist felt that the Monk was trying to avoid answering his question since this was a very personal and unwarranted question. Yet the journalist said: "Mother had expired. Father is there. Three brothers and one sister. All married..." The Monk, with a smile on his face, asked again: "Do you talk to your father?" The journalist looked visibly annoyed... The Monk: "When did you talk to him last?" The journalist, suppressing his annoyance said: "May be a month ago." The Monk: "Do you brothers and sisters meet often? When did you meet last as a family gathering?" At this point, sweat appeared on the forehead of the journalist. It seemed that the Monk was interviewing the Journalist. With a sigh, the Journalist said: "We met last at Christmas two years ago." The Monk: "How many days did you all stay together?" The Journalist (wiping the sweat on his brow) said: "Three days..." Monk: "How much time did you spend with your Father, sitting right beside him?" The journalist looking perplexed and embarrassed and started scribbling something on a paper... The Monk: "Did you have breakfast, lunch or dinner together? Did you ask how he was? Did you ask how his days are passing after your mother's death?" _Drops of tears started to flow from the eyes of the journalist._ The Monk held the hand of the journalist and said: "Don't be embarrassed, upset or sad. I am sorry, if I have hurt you unknowingly... But this is basically the answer to your question about "Contact and Connection." You have 'Contact' with your father but you don't have 'Connection' with him. You are not connected to him. Connection is between heart and heart... Sitting together, sharing meals and caring for each other, touching, shaking hands, having eye contact, spending some time together... All your brothers and sisters have 'Contact' but no 'Connection' with each other..." The journalist wiped his eyes and said : "Thanks for teaching me a fine and unforgettable lesson." This is the reality today. Whether at home or in society everybody has lots of contacts but there is no connection. Everybody is busy in his or her own world. ... Let us not maintain just "Contacts" but let us remain "Connected." Caring, Sharing and Spending time with all our dear ones. The Monk was none other than Swami Vivekananda. *Forward received from Babu Australia G Life's Philosophy Quotes https://graciousquotes.com/life-philosophy/


The round of Kabbadi is generally mainstream in the nations of the Indian sub-landmass and it has picked up some measure of favor in numerous different nations too. Essentially, a group round of resistance including assault and guard, the primary bit of leeway of Kabaddi is that it requires positively no set-up or expound gear separated from two groups and play territory.
