I walk on a road lush with dreams,
a road of forgotten and veiled dreams,
sometimes slowly, sometimes gaily,
sometimes lost, sometimes profound,
I walk a road of unknown mysteries,
fervently finding my way through the endless path.....

A letter to my Anatomy book!

Dear Anatomy book,

How are you? Rather I should inquire how are you enjoying the excess attention being poured upon you now a days? Aglowing at your astute job..isn't it? Don't smile, this won't last long! Now, that you have been dusted off and opened , will you please explain me why on earth are you so complicated? They very sight of you is so tortuous and tiring?!

Can't those so-called accomplished writers use a more comprehensible language? something that is lucid and interesting. To give an example . We all know where stomach lies in our body, don't we? One could simply say that it lies in the left in the abdominal region but when you say that stomach lies 'obliquely in the upper and left part of abdomen, occupying epigastric, umbilical and left hypochondriac region' are you expecting me to consent with it? Your fondness to entangle terms to present definitions which undefine all my logics and makes my head sway!

The moment I sit down to study, I realize that the only quality possessed by you is your soporific effect. That's what works best on me at least! And those depressing diagrams, you should have consulted a better artist in my opinion, they look so ugly and shapeless, I wish I could have dissected my college cadaver to show you the REAL 'work of art'!

If I were on my own, I'd file a complain against you and your moronic writers for robbing and corrupting the Latin language. If gall bladder is known as it is, who on earth gifted you the right to mention sphincter of Gall bladder as 'choledochus' ? Damn! you are so confused every single time, in every single line ! alternating English with Latin and Latin with Roman as if it were your engagement rings!

Do you have even a grain of consideration for the poor students? We are struggling already with physiology and bio chem, our partners and their tantrums and you the unsympathetic selfish book pile up on the study table make our life's more miserable?

Remember one thing.. you and I are never meant to be together, I would rather commit myself to 'dawgs' than to you!
And please stop buttering my gullible teachers, they seem to speak and understand only the language that you speak! I need to pass and I wrote this letter for that very purpose, am ready to grin and bear it for a while but you need to adjust too.
And If you try to act smart I will humiliate you as bad as those examiners do us in the vivas. Guess, that's a warning good enough.

yours unfortunately and unwillingly
(with a bone in hand)
