Celebrating Navratri, Medico style!
Day 4: Maa Kushmanda/Yellow
-Written by Hitaishi Thakkar
Mata Kushmuta, fourth avatar of Goddess Durga, is credited for creating the entire universe with her smile. The goddess bestows good wealth, health and strength to her devotees. The day of Chaturthi celebrates the color yellow and it’s warm embrace
Yellow is the color of joy, optimism and enthusiasm. It shines on us as a beacon of positive energy but for medical students yellow signifies a journey: from start to end!
Sir back and relax as we take you on a life expedition.
Spread the sunshine
Yellow sky yellow vibe,
Midst the golden hues,
I’ve got some news,
With the morning sickness,
Has new life begun?
Oh yay! It’s the corpus luteum!
In the uterus the baby grows.
As time ticks by
It’s now time for a show.
Oh wait! It’s a baby bro!
The next few hours pass by
As we hear his first cry
Neonatal hyperbilirubinemia comes to being
And shatters our picture perfect dream
Doctors say he got the Aureus,
Golden yellow colonies glow.
Healing with light
And all other things right
Our little angel is now a man
With a glass of wine in one hand
Liver cirrhosis knocks the door
Fatty liver takes the lead.
Medications are unable to heal
Partial hepatectomy does the trick.
The yellow bag takes all the grit
Xanthelasma on the eyelid
With atherosclerosis in the heart
Can’t bear the heaviness, just got an infarct.
Trying to be healthy & fit
Exercise along with my Riboflavin
Breakfast with yolks and bananas
Increased protein does the trick
Lived life King size
Senescence takes the lead
And slowly he stops to breathe
There he goes in the yellow flames
Life starts and ends at yellow
It’s just a journey
From the first hello to the last mellow
