I was in a great mood yesterday and wanted to find some time to scribble here, but somehow it seemed harder and harder to slot into the limited 24 hours. Will need to quickly come to terms with the post graduate life and the compromises that come with it.
As I write, I have completed 48 hours in my new department, a designation that will be my identity for the rest of my life. The transition has been smoother than I expected. Getting a newly constructed hostel room, plus a cheerful bunch of colleagues to work with, it already seems like am on the brink of a really exciting journey.
Inaugural function with introduction to the system by all eminent leaders of the institution was followed by basic outline of the Hospital premises, a bit on infection control and some of the Do’s and Don’ts here. The headache of any postgraduate branch is the Thesis work that accompanies it and we are privileged to have got an intro from an established Bio stats Prof (retd. AIIMS) on how to make our lives a bit easier.
There is always a fear, a fear of how things will pan out, when we set out on something new. As all 6 of us freshmen eagerly waited for the HOD to arrive in the morning, I was taken aback by the informal nature of the HOD’s rapport! He spoke at length of what he expects us to do, the potential he sees in us and how we should utilize the resources available to us. The one hour of his time he spent sharing his views and experiences were not only motivational|inspiring, but also instilled a sense of pride that a few of us are fortunate to be given this opportunity to work with Men of such a brilliant track record.
Day 3 here i come!
A passionate colossal quest, exploring new realms, time to make DREAMS COME TRUE!
