I've never seen her smile, but today her face was soft and childlike despite the wire rings piercing her eyebrows and lips. A stubble of blond hair poked out of her scalp, making her look like a kid with his first crewcut. She wore a white cotton tank top that clung tightly to her small breasts and baggy fatigues tucked into the tops of heavy army boots laced halfway up her thin calves. Fiery tattoos swirled up her arms, and images of thick black chains were emblazoned around her neck.
“I'm applying for a scholarship to go back to school,” she told me.

on being a teacher to medical students
When I read the extract of your article on being a doctor, I thought I wanted to share some thoughts like of being a teacher to medical students. Thirty five years of teaching to medical students of different calibre at the first year of medicine is one of the most exhilirating experience I have and I had. No personal relationships excepting the subject of my teaching Biochemistry acted like a language that spread across the class room making my students my body and me as their soul - I could see that communion with God for my students are my life line. Today being my birthday I thought that I could share my birthday to all such medical students and great teachers- the greatest gift one can have is to teach medical students who save lives and bring nobility to this profession. Please donot lose your human touch among the crowded gadgets - for there is a life that needs your touch and care. My dear students of the medical fraternity- I am a very humble teacher yet I feel privileged to be a teacher in a medical school. I wish and feel that I be a teacher until my last breathe in the class rooms among all of you.
