Pinned toot


Ok so I'm a little late to this game.

Jonathan here!

I'm an Emergency Medicine Specialist working in Kerala, India. (Tiny missing details are always good 😜)

Made the jump from the birdsite because I'm just sick of their obvious far right bias.

Figured I could come here a safe space and make a fresh start.

I intend to toot about medicine, health, football (Bayern Munich), little bit of politics, and anything funny that I might come across.

Stay awesome everyone!

@just1doctorwala you just made me remember rajesh khanna song 'zindagi ke safar mein gujar zate hain jo mukam woh phir nahi aate, phir nahi aate' one of the ever-green songs and yet timeless.

The reason we hold on to memories so tight is because memories are the things that don't change…

Good maps of Kashmir are hard to come by because both India and Pakistan claim all of it and so you have a joke like India's official map. Reality is India holds only slightly more than half that land area. China holds slightly under a fifth, rest is held by Pakistan. The triple-nuclear stalemate. THE CURRENT GROUND REALITY IS NOT GOING TO CHANGE DESPITE FANTASIES OF BOTH INDIA AND PAKISTAN.

I went to a bookstore and asked the salesperson where the "Self Help" section was.

She said if she told me it would defeat the purpose 🤦‍♂️

A conversation that i was a part of that sums up why I will never ever hire an Indian middle level manager!

Indian Middle Level guy: Sir, I am flagging this delivery issue to you as an escaltion.

Firang boss: What happened?

Indian: The vendor i chose is not delivering on time.

Firang: So you're telling me, why?

IML: So that it doesnt reflect badly on me.

Firang: I didn't hire you to escalate issues! I hired you to solve them! Come with solutions or a resignation if you can't solve things!

has anyone tried to watch the Lilly Singh late night talk show?

It is the BJP that will be irrelevant in the future.... and that too long before GDP will become irrelevant!

once back in school, my teacher pointed a ruler at me and said, "at the end of this ruler is an idiot"

I got punished after I asked "which end?" 😜

Politicians and diapers have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly, and for the same reason.

Success is like smell of urine. it is tolerable only if its your own.

I once asked my Mom if I was a gifted child.
She said that they "certainly wouldn’t have paid for" me... 😮
