Life of a PG aspirant

When I got MBBS, I thought it would be the beginning of a new life, a life filled with happiness. I thought treating patients will bring joy not only by relieving their suffering but also by bringing peace to my mind.As years progressed expectations were there but life was lacking. When I passed MBBS, next big task awaited me, the medical PG entrance. I decided to study, but it was a bit too late and inadequate. I was so immersed in stock trading, blogging, watching football matches, there was very little time to study. I thought it was enough because I had never studied so much in my life! But it was too little, but I couldn’t help it, I needed rest I wanted happiness.

Friends told me ” If you work hard for one year, you will pass through and everything will be just fine. When I see the life of a PG student, I am horror struck. So what I endured was too little, what lays ahead of me is something which I thought would never happen to me. It is inevitable in the life of any doctor, to endure the hardships. Many say, you will reap the benefits in the end. I ask myself, where is the end? Passing MBBS is just the beginning, trying for PG is the next part. If I get a PG, will it be the end? I don’t think so, superspeciality entrance awaits!

I wanted to draw a line, where I could stop and rest. There is no such line in my field of vision, an year has to pass before any line can be drawn. That’s how a PG Aspirant( PG worker) has to live, no rest, no happiness, just days and nights spent among piles of books.

But I do find happiness, by bathing, sleeping and eating from different shops! Sometimes I love this life. I think it is better not to worry too much about future. I will do my part and await for a wonderful result, meanwhile I will be blogging and posting what I learn on this blog.

I can see many young doctors who are in the same fix as I am in, visiting this blog.So I expect some comments from you guys, so that we can strengthen each other on the way forward.

  5. Well as they say..There is no Gain without Pain..The earliar you understand, the earliar you will be at peace and the more inner strength you can garner to reach your goal.. Sacrifice is the key .. Even the Great Munis had to do years and years of Tapasya in order to get the invincible Vardaans ..So all my fellow Doctors dont take this profession as a work or job,,You must see it as a way of life and your first Love!!..
    Justice is never denied to those who do and dont worry about the fruit..
    Best of Luck to all!
