Syndrome
by Rajender Krishan
Bookmark and Share
 

Today, I had my
annual physical checkup.
What all these years seemed
to be an annual ritual, now
suddenly made me realize,

That with all the marvels
of medical technology, involving
hi-tech machines, specialized doctors
and of course, branded medicines
highly marketed colorful tablets, capsules,

Some bitter and strong syrups
to be taken empty stomach
with food, before dinner,
after dinner, just before sleeping,
maintaining strict schedule

Of intervals, every day
with a plethora of other treatments
and innumerable do’s and don’ts
the fight to remain alive itself
is becoming a novel ailment

Comment living itself is painful after 45 onwards and especially after 60! After 70 it is better to leave this Earth to the other world it seems because of the syndrome that has to be faced more tedious than pain itself! Experience Speaks louder, my friend!
