It was my pre-medical student days when I was highly motivated to be a cardiologist. Hardly known to the fact that sometimes destiny holds you back, I was down with some-not-so-properly diagnosed auto-immunity disease. This led me to be in bed for almost 3 months, unwell and writing sad poems. Heart-broken,...
