I worked on Saturday..rather attended a first aid training from 9 to 5 on Saturday..so totally entitled to be in a blue blue on Monday!!
I am not dwelling on the fact that its gloomy and non sunny weather in Bombay..though it didnt rain..otherwise I would have titled this as Monday Purples or something…yaa yaa…I know, I told I wont be cribbing..but kya karein..somethings never change in life eh?
– And then on Saturday, Crossword was having some kid hour..something I thought was connected to a book reading..so RD got R there while I rushed from office, only to realise it was some craft making..gah!
We didnt buy anything from Crossword which is a first time for us..but they dont stock any Tulika or Pratham, so well..ah!
– On sunday morning, there was a book reading at Treasure Books, Khar…
I have never been there earlier…It was a book reading by Katie Bagli on her books ‘Birds of Different Feathers’ and ‘Mammals Mighty and Meek’…I got to know about it from somewhere and RD and I forgot to ask them the age group…and it was 6+
I think R was definitely small for the group, but we had a good time at the book reading..
– Then we also saw the Ghanteshwar Hanuman temple right next to the place…Like shown the photo, its got like a MILLION bells or something…ek dum..unique..am so looking for a history for this place..lemme see if I can get anything online 🙂
On the first aid training…old male doctor was teaching…I sure learnt a lot of things..but but…I found the attitude of the doctor very very sad…
Some subtle points..about how ‘boys’ are more reliable than ‘girls’
how, today’s doctors are only money doctors and not moral doctors
how, they got admissions via marks, now doctors get admissions via money
how, to tie the bandage around the neck, and then try it on the evil mother in law..
or..how the fat people will use more of his bandage so he prefers thin people as volunteers grrrrr….
and in those lines…I used all my energy to SHUT UP as much as I could…I just couldnt stand some of his words, but after last time’s fiasco about opening my mouth, I tried very very hard..
He started teaching us CR..basically massaging the heart incase there is no pulse..one lady did it before me, and she had already attended the training 2 months ago..
good good he went, and asked me to try it since I was the youngest in the group (or so he thought!!!)
anyways, as I was going and he said ‘dont use all your strength, my mannequin cant take it ‘
Everyone laughed, I didnt open my mouth (Trying to be zen you see!)
and then I started the CR, when he said ‘dont bend your hands’ very rudely..”hee porigi na (this girl na)
thats it, something snapped inside me and I said ‘you are supposed to tell me that doctor, otherwise, I may not need the training at all right?’
There was a stunned silence or should I say pregnant pause or whatever, I didnt care, I didnt look up and kept taking out my frustrations on his poor mannequin…
anyways, someone cleared their throat and he started talking again..
ufff! when will I learnt to shut up I dont know!
