Thursday morning,my alarm beeped at 7 and i was in my deepest mode f sleep,and in case u wonder i sleep till late,lemme tell u tht I sleep around 2 in the night so it's less than 6 hrs i plan my sleep for ...however i snoozed my alarm again and again and when i got up it was 9:15 so jus had 45 mins to get ready!!
I live in 5th floor and since power was cut so lift was nt wrking
I used stairs..& my morning started wid cursing evryone from Indian Gov (responsible for power cuts and making us realize the importance of NUCLEAR DEAL),Medical Shop wala (the person din giv me the change for 100 bucks that I needed for my bus fair),and I genuinely have my aversion for Bus crowd( which always spoils my Formal clothes and shoes),myself(for getting up late and feeling nappy even inside bus) and my flat mates(for not allowing me to sleep early previous night)!!
I took almost one hour to reach my destination ..the place is a lab where i am having my final internship for whole 2nd last semester..everything was fyn, till we ver having some usual observations...in the specified lab called 'Histopathology'...then suddenly I saw evry staff member getting up from their respective seats as the Head of all the labs had jus arrived ...we also greeted him, but I was afraid to face him .as.he asks hell lot f questions....and even if I have read it somewhere It suddenly goes to some unexplored region of my brain at that very moment...!!
He directly rushed towards the section where the tissues are taken out from the specimen for their further scrutiny...he screamed at other technicians
"where is the new sample??"
evry one was alert by now ..and one of my batch mate who is also in the same lab said let's have a look at wat he does...and I was about to say NO but before I cud do that She rushed toward the grossing area and I reluctantly followed her...we again greeted the Monster and he said
"so wat have u been Learning so far??"
I wanted to say nothing ..but I said Nothing and jus smiled ..the gal went On blah blah blah !!
she asked him "wat is this new specimen sir?"
He said It's a baby and i din pay any attention to wat he said I thought he feels for his wrk tht's y he is calling the specimen as his Baby ...but he again said..
"It's a 24 weeks old baby.!!"
and the very moment I felt like saying WTF !!
He said ...there was this abnormal growth in the neck region near Thyroid gland because of that the pregnancy was terminated and they have sent us the sample to check whether It's a sort f Cancer !
and while saying he turned towards me and said "which one is Thyroid can u fig out ??" I wanted to say How the hell Wud I ??
but again the gal saved my ass....then he kept on asking about the functions of thyroid,parathyroid,esophagus....and other helluva body parts &..I jus kept nodding....
He brutally dissected the tongue region and separated it out from neck, then again dissected the thyroid region and I cud hardly distinguish betwn the anterior and posterior regions ..as it jus looked like a brown mass which was hardly a few grams in weight and lil more than the size of my middle finger....then he warped the separate parts in a an aluminum foiled and gave to us and said measure it ...we measured it wid the help of other assistants and not a single part was more than 5gms !!
That very day I kept pondering on wat the Monster said:
"WE CAN ASSEMBLE DIFFERENT PARTS AND COMBINE IT IN TO A MACHINE BUT HUMAN BODY IS ONE MACHINE THAT DIFFERENTIATES IN TO VARIOUS PARTS FROM A SINGLE CELL"
"that is the biggest difference betwn our creation and god's creation"
I say true ...very true ...a 100 out of 100 :):)
