Knowing when to Quit…

Knowing when to quit…

Recently in the month of MAY 2019, Mount Everest saw a traffic jam as 300 mountaineers made it to the summit that day, creating a traffic jam, a picture of which went viral the next day. German alpinist, David Gottler, was not among those who summited. He was just 200 meters from the peak when he turned back. David was also among the lucky ones, This spring, the Everest climb saw 21 mountaineers die while attempting to scale the world’s highest peak – the highest number to die so far!

Why did he turn back despite being an experienced climber who had already conquered five of the 14 different 8000m peaks on Earth, reaching the summits of Gasherbrum II (8035m), Broad Peak (8051m), Dhaulagiri (8167m), Lhotse (8516m) and Makalu (8481m), as well as ascending to 8200m on K2 (8611m)? He took a crucial decision. That day that the risks were way too much to attempt to summit despite being so close.

His experience told him that the crowd trying to reach the peak would make him wait for his turn which could prove fatal as above 26,000 feet you are in the death zone when there isn’t enough oxygen for humans to breathe. The summit of Mount Everest is 8,848 meters (29,029 feet) high, an elevation at which each breath contains only one-third of the oxygen found at sea level. And David was a purist who was climbing without supplemental oxygen.

At only 200 meters from the peak David took perhaps the most sensible and courageous decision of his life – to give up the climb and come down. He didn’t win the mountain that day, but he won over his ego. Only a man without an ego can decide when to give up and when to clench your teeth and push on regardless.

All our lives we have been constantly told by motivational speakers and others, never to give up and yet here was an experienced mountaineer who simply says that making it to the peak is not all that matters, when even the less experienced ones were summiting that day.

There were many who went up that day, but in the process exhausted their oxygen supplies while waiting for the queue of other mountaineers to clear up before they could summit. Some of them ran out of oxygen on the way down and died. The true climbers respect the mountains and as Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to set foot on Mount Everest said; “Human life is far more important than just getting to the top of a mountain.”

There are climbers who climb to enjoy the view and not always to plant a flag on the peak. Sometimes in our lives it is more important on how we enjoy living than how “successful” we are in the eyes of others or even ourselves.

Quitting takes a lot of courage and sometimes only the wise can give up even when success seems so near.

They always ask themselves: What is the cost of winning? Is it worth to scale the summit.

Recently seen a young girl brought to my clinic for checkup .

She was brought by mother for a THROUGH Checkup.
Mother suspected that the daughter had Sexual Intercourse (with consent) or was molested by a friend.
On detailed history and examination, her apparent “Friend” was an equally Young boy whom she got to know over “Instagram” only 10 days ago😱.
This was followed by a brief ‘Making out session’ in a hotel room.☺
Mothers please be very alert and cautious with teenage children around.
Communication is the key for most of the adolescent problems .
Avoid Smart phones till children are 18 or more.
If not possible,then Keep yourself updated,
keep check on their posts and especially photos on Instagram.
Checks on Snapchat etc.

Welcome to New Age Parenting.

M.D. Dr.. Obstetrics and Gynaecology

In the Online Era…. someday somewhere !!

Internet has a great influence in our lives. We may or may not realize, but it has changed a lot in our lives. We are surrounded by mobile phones, computers and many other electronic devices all the time. Actually sometimes you might actually feel being a slave of these devices. These changes are both advantageous as well as not so much advantageous for us.

Social networks like Facebook and Twitter allow us to connect with people who, in a pre-Internet age, we might not have known about. On an average, people at facebook have 350 friends. Also, one tweet from twitter, shakes the whole country, change opinions of millions of people in a second.

You can stream almost anything online now.  Music, TV , Movies and other forms of entertainment are available in convenient ways online, and people are going for it.

Skipping the Queues:  Flipkart, Amazon etc.,  have changed our lives a lot…There’s no shortage of online stores nowadays. And with the fierce competition, they are giving competitive pricing.  Moreover, the cost of maintenance of a mall, and other costs lead to lowering of prices, from their end if bought online.

Showcasing our creativity : Writers, artists and other creative types are finding a lot of use for the Internet. Some writers have had their books published through e-publishers, skyrocketing them into the top-level tiers of fame. Others have started blogs, online accounts and online business through some websites to get their material out there and connect to an audience as well as earn a handsome amount of money.

We Multitask !!   Multi-tasking existed long before the Internet, of course, but with numerous smartphones — and tabs ! Infinite tabs! — has made multitasking both easier and more damaging. Order food, shopping, manage bank account, office jobs can all be done effectively in a similar span of time.

But then ..

Thinking Capacity reduced :  These days, whenever teacher gives assignment to students, they tend to go to the internet, copy all the material and just submit it as it is. This just reduce the thinking capacity of students. Google has answer to almost everything in this world and so people do not actually think themselves or search from Books.

Addiction:  After drugs and alcohol, internet is the third most addictive thing. Once you get addicted to internet – it can be social networking gaming sites, or even gambling websites., it is very difficult to come back.

Hackers, Scams!!  In today’s world, where everyone has internet access but not everyone has right knowledge about what is right and what is wrong on the internet, it becomes a quiet security threat.  Scams on internet have been increasing many folds in the past few days and have continued to scam innocent people;  These scam artists work quite efficiently, by tricking and fooling people in lure of more money or any other tactics.

Reduction in real human interactions : Let us face it, with the emergence of more and more social media platforms and sites, people have shifted to more electronic interaction and have resulted in a loss of human touch. This is also a leading cause of depression and a major negative aspects of internet.

In this Online Era;  someday somewhere  we could easily hear a conversation as below:

Hello! Is this Gordon’s Pizza?

No sir, it’s Google’s Pizza.

Did I dial the wrong number?

No sir, Google has bought the Gordon’s pizza store.

Oh, alright – then I would like to place an order please.

Okay sir, do you want the usual?

The usual? You know what my usual is?

According to the caller ID, the last 15 times you have ordered a 12-slice with double-cheese, sausage, and thick crust.

Okay – that’s what I want this time too.

May I suggest that this time you order an 8-slice with ricotta, arugula, and tomato instead?

No, I hate vegetables.

But your cholesterol is not good.

How do you know?

Through the subscribers guide… We have the results of your blood tests for the last 7 years.

Maybe so, but I don’t want the pizza you suggest – I already take medicine for high cholesterol.

But you haven’t taken the medicine regularly. 4 months ago you purchased from Drugsale Network a box of only 30 tablets.

I bought more from another drugstore.

It’s not showing on your credit card sir.

I paid in cash.

But according to your bank statement you did not withdraw that much cash.

I have another source of cash.

This is not showing on your last tax form, unless you got it from an undeclared income source.

To HELL With Your Pizza.. !!  ENOUGH !!

I am sick of Google, Facebook, Twitter, and WhatsApp. I am going to an island without internet, where there’s no cellphone line, and no one to spy on me …

I understand sir, but you’ll need to renew your PASSPORT …it expired 5 weeks ago.
🤣

Summer…..don’t drink too cold fluids

1. A doctor friend came to me to chat and said that the weather was very hot. Under the sun, it could reach 40 degrees C.
He said: At 40 degrees, if you drink ice water in an instant, the micro blood vessels could explode. One of his friends just went into the house to wash his feet with cold water. Then his eyes could not see clearly, and he passed out. Only the ears could hear the sound. He was terrified!
2. The temperature in some places has reached 38 degrees C or higher, but the temperature of the body sense should be higher. The danger is not just with drinking ice cold water. The same danger may occur with
even washing hands / washing your face / washing your feet. You must not subject any part of the hot body to temperature shock with cold water. You need about 30 minutes to allow the body to cool down and adjusted to the indoor temperature. Drink luke- warm water of around 34 to 36 degrees C.
3. There is a very strong man. The doctor had examined him in the hospital about three years ago.
He met the man again and was surprised to find that he had a stroke. He was in a bad condition. The man told the doctor, ” Recently, on a hot day, upon returning home, in order to quickly cool off from the heat, I immediately took a cold shower. I felt that I could not move my jaws properly. I immediately called an ambulance to send me to the hospital. That saved my life.”

sun

Remember, especially on a hot day, avoid cold water to cool off as it will cause rapid contraction of blood vessels.

Adults with young children at home should inform their helpers about this.

The weather is abnormal recently. It may be nice to have a cold drink to cool down, but it is very dangerous!  Avoid gulping down the drink, drink it slowly.

Please pass this message to your family and friends. It may save a life !

Journey of a Woman….

Being a woman means being strong, because you will find that your womanhood will need that strength, and when you let it, sometimes that strength will even find you. When you are a woman, you take the responsibility for your life and for what you want from that life…

“A Woman –  She is like a surface of glass, transparent that you can see inside. The more you wipe it gently, the more it will shine , and  You can see Your reflection on it, as if the woman is preserving your image inside of her shyly. If You break it one day, it will be so hard for you to collect its shattered pieces again. If you did collect them to stick them, it won’t be back to the way it was… It will always be disfigured. Every time you shall pass your hand on the fractured zones “scars” You will hurt your hand.”

Sharing below the Journey of a Girl… a Woman… a Female !!

A girl, with cheerfulness Went into silence;  There was No, anguish no pain;
But still she was a victim of many men’s foul play

Some offered her friendship, Some offered her secrecy of a close relationship

Some offered her,   time to time medicines of “Hello” “Hi” ; And expected her to dance to their tunes With a similar rhyme

Some offered her, good time, only till they could find a next one;  While Some offered her, (…………), fill whatever you can without any hesitation

She was one, but she was with so many people,
She became many Life s at the same time,
Living various characters, with them
And then ultimately forgot who she  was in a real sense

She wasn’t wrong, she wasn’t right too
She just wanted to walk in the field of success
Without knowing the path, and for this reason alone,
she gave useless attention to many cheap passers-by

women

Is this a lesson learnt ???  or is it just another story of a woman and her shades while she moves towards her final destination.. and her life journey not to be made public anymore yet…
