A warrant from Ganj Basoda for appearing in court on 7th August was shown to me on 5th August. It was an arrest warrant with the message stated on it as ‘Saakshi ko hathkadi na lagai jaaye’ meaning the ‘witness be not handcuffed’. I had not received summon earlier for the case and I was served warrant straight away. The warrant related to an autopsy case done by me in 2006!! The court was trying to locate me first at Gandhi Medical College because the seal below my signature mentioned it as my work place.
Iowa a small town in USA is regarded as literary capital of the world and rightfully so. It has people reading and writing or involved in intellectual discourse all the time and everywhere. To be in that geographical location was a feast to the mind and soul. It was a vacation I had never expected. Impulse to sketch, something I had not done for decades overpowered me and I felt a 'high' of a sort which was my own. It was the moment of rediscovering and falling in love with oneself. Indulgence to read whatever one desired for as long as one preferred was a reality.
Dried weather, Dried land ,and people with dry behaviour ,this is how I will summarize Chambal (more commonly called land of dacoits and bandits).

I would narrate most of my life within the past 3years here at AIIMS. Maybe my life will not be normal after this article. Maybe I will worsen my life more after this by being teased more by the people about whom I just wrote this.
A big mistake of my life was choosing MBBS but what was even bigger was taking this institute.
