Mid-year resolution

Whilst in Edmonton, I flicked through the University of Alberta Faculty of Extension Fall 2011 Programme. It has inspired me to dig out those old Gujarati, French and Portuguese books and finally master the languages…

"Learning a language is more than making unusual sounds and learning a new alphabet. It's about communicating and understanding. It is a cultural experience. As you develop your vocabulary and perfect your pronunciation of a new language, you will find delight in the cadence, idioms and forms of expression. And through words and sentences that you will learn, you will gain insight into how others around the globe view their world…"

Bloody anecdote

After a long struggle against the incredible veinless man, I managed to get enough blood for all many tests we wanted to do. Just as I was withdrawing the needle, though, the plunger of the syringe popped out and flew across the room. Blood splattered all over me, the patient, the bed, walls and floor. Nurse walked in just then, surveyed the scene and concluded that I must have just killed the patient.
