Buzurg and Unbuzurg!

Buzurg and Unbuzurg!

4 mins 7 4 mins 7

When life throws lemons, make a lemonade! This is what so many people kept telling me, but one person I came across, and I know only since a short time, has taught me the true and literal sense of it. As a part of the medical fraternity, which has not been spared of the commercialization and politics, maintaining you foothold in addition to your mental calm is quintessential. I am told one day, that you have to work closely with this man ( I will use his nickname: Buzurg!). A famous, and very senior oncologist, who is not only the talk of the town for the good work he does for cancer patients, but among the juniors as an unapproachable strict guy. I was very very scared!


I started praying for my own self when he told me that I need to give him reports in one day. I started believing the world that he's super annoying. Not until, I realized, he's not annoying, he is like that cause he wants to do the best for the sick people who look up to him. Hailing from a common education campus, we connected fast. And until two months ago, when he heaped me with loads of work, I realized that he is a senior in the truest sense of the word. I as a senior resident, practically no one knew me, despite having a coveted degree from one of the finest institutes of the country. He made me believe in reality. I was drowned in remorse of joining this place. This place, definitely not so congenial socially, mentally, but academically and for your growth, practically there is no better place. He made me believe, that the sky is the limit.


It soon became that I was working morning for my boss, and evenings for him. My lifestyle changed, my outlook has changed. I was determined to go back in my career by three years and it was at this juncture I came close to sir. He made me realize the big mistake I was about to make in life. I realized what a waste it would be. Thank you so much. 


My vision is different now. I am hungry for more new knowledge. In his own pursuit of doing good, he touches so many lives which come near him. Not only the patients but all his colleagues, his residents, his secretaries.. no one is left behind. Usually, these people are men of few words, but he is a man of a lot of words. Too many one liners, wittiness at its personified best! From research projects, studies, and proposals, I was too"slow"for him always. He always remarked: you don't do anything ever". Despite me doing things at a speed for which the drivers of the need for speed would give me anything! And soon "slow" became his password also!!. Looking upto him as mentor was one thing, but as a human being was another one. A wonderful heart that cared for everyone. Most disliked his openness and straightforwardness, but that is what I like. It taught me to be uninhibited. It taught me how to look through politics which keeps happening here. It taught me how not to give importance to certain people who were always attention-hungry. 


He gave me reasons to stay in this workplace. He gave me reasons to believe in myself. He became family. 

And what he became in my life is different from what I have now become in my own life. I am more humble, and I am more mature. I see the world as my own territory. I don't care what people have to say about me. I just know if people are talking behind my back, I'm simply becoming famous. Some words of his like these have changed the way I look at things, how I talk to people, and how I perceive what I want to do. 


My horizon has widened, to extents which I myself can't imagine. I look at more details and more and more immaculately. thank you Buzurg for giving my life the direction which it needed! Your buzurg ways of giving unbuzurg gyaan has changed me in to a "New Me". They rightly say sometimes to bring a change in someone's life, you just need to be "YOU!"
