Description

I wake up to the sirens of an ambulance and see a patient being rushed in. At least there is hope as I see the frenzied manner from the 4th Floor window of Apollo Hospital. It is winter here and time for the north-east monsoon to bring in the rains. As the sun rises, I feel gooseflesh as a streak of tears form in the corner of the eye. I am lucky to be alive today and most surely not make it next month.

Make no mistake, I am dying and don't need a doctor's worried look or the anxiety writ faces of my wife and children. My body was giving up on me and I could sense the daily deterioration. I was appalled by the mirror: Though balding fast, my face had a youthful lustre, a long and round nose, and a small mouth. At over 185 cms height and an extra bit of fat, colleagues at the office suggested that I resembled Helmet Kohl, the ex-German Chancellor. Now I could see the face taunt and withered, the nose now looked more snubbed and that alone showed I was degenerating fast."
