Why Scalpel Sculptor?

I still remember I was trying to pen down a short verse during my final year in medicine when I was really stressed out. The final line went something like, "The things that we must do, to sculpt with scalpels in our hand". I fell in love with that idea (a little self-indulgent, I know).

I've always been fascinated by the surgical skills I come across in our hospitals. While everyone who operates is a good doctor, there're very few good surgeons around; few who wield their instruments as extensions of their hands. There's a particular finesse, a different form of confidence one needs. Its art in motion. You need to see it to believe it.

Through this blog I will try to show you what actually constitutes the "practice" of medicine. The humor lies in how serious we are about our profession.
