  1. What do you do?

    I'm currently a third year MBBS student from CDSIMER, Karnataka, with a passion for research and writing books.

  2. What’s the best part of your profession? What made you choose this profession?

    The best part of my profession involves making the patient's life better by providing quality treatment at an affordable cost. As a first-generation doctor, it becomes my duty to help my near and dear ones.

  3. Do you like reading? What was the last thing you read?

    Yes, I'm a fan of Roald Dahl. I also enjoy history, and one of my all-time favorites is "Horrible Histories" by Terry Deary. My reading interests vary, and I sometimes read old wives' tales or revisit my childhood comics such as Tinkle digest. My most recent read is "Matilda" by Roald Dahl.

  4. What is your favorite dish?

    I'm into trying different dishes from around the world each time. However, no matter how delicious they are, my granny's rasam remains my ultimate favorite.

  5. How would your friend describe you?

    My friends would describe me as a pain in the neck, but they would also admit that they would feel lonely without me. I'm the one they can confide in, even with the most concealed secrets. I'm the all-time savior, especially during exams, a fun-loving and joyous guy. I might be shy with strangers, but I'm a chatterbox with close ones.

  6. Who would you like to travel with?

    Family, Friend(s)

  7. Mention your favorite subjects.

    My favorite subjects are forensic medicine, pathology, and general medicine. Back in school, I enjoyed English, History, and Biology.

  8. What is your least favorite subject?

    Biochemistry is my least favorite among all due to its high volatility. During my pre-NEET era, Math and Physics were also challenging due to their complicated sums and formulas to remember. I'm glad that phase is over.

  9. What’s something you wish to change about the world?

    I wish people would spend more time with their loved ones instead of being consumed by technology. I want them to ditch their phones at home and spend evenings together in a rendezvous, discussing what they feel is best for the family and how things can improve. When families are happy, the world will be more peaceful.

  10. If your journey were a movie, what would it be called?

    The Medico's Melodrama

  11. What are you passionate about?

    I'm passionate about learning about the world from the comfort of my home. I love exploring languages, cultures, and traditions of different people. Interacting with like-minded individuals to exchange knowledge is something I enjoy. Additionally, penning down my thoughts through poetry and short stories is my cup of tea.

  12. Best/memorable moment?

    One of my best and most memorable moments was when I took over the responsibility of helping my friend pass his final exams, and we succeeded. I wrote notes for him and taught him every day until late at night. I was delighted that he made it through.

  13. What do you love to do in your leisure time?

    In my leisure time, I love talking to my friends and family, watching comedy on YouTube, and going out to dinner with my loved ones.

  14. What do you hate the most?

    I dislike traveling all the way from home to get attendance for morning lectures.

  15. If given a choice, what alternate career would you have opted for?

    I would have chosen a career as a genetic scientist, a biology professor, or an author.

  16. What is your dream travel destination?

    New York

  17. Where would you like to work in the future?

    In the future, I'd prefer a job with less workload, more comfort, better pay, and lower stress.

  18. Finally, a quote you relate to:

    Not exactly a quote, but rather a stanza from Robert Frost's "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" where he tells - "The woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep."

    There are certain situations in life where I feel like getting lost in an idealistic world, but I realize it isn't possible, and I have my duties to attend to before I can rest.

  19. What else would you like to tell about yourself?

    It took time to break out of my shy-chrysalis, but once freed, I realized the world is much vaster than I had imagined. I engaged with fellow colleagues, learned the art of speech, how to recover from betrayal, and how to thank those who stood by my side during crises. I also learned the polite way of refusing. I became closer to my parents and cherished every moment with them.
