On Crying

It is said that men don't cry , but I do not agree with what one may say
I cry to shed tears of joy , and then wait a while for the tears to dry
I cried in the past for many reasons , and in seasons to come I might
the same way
I cried for the first time when I was born for a breath of air in pulmonary way
I do cry when I am very happy , and also when I am hurt in any particular way
I cried when I failed my examinations , and also when the success came
along my way
I did not want to go to school on the first day and cried all along the way
A good cry with a flood of tears will wash away both eyes clean and dry
A nice way for the eyes as proved by Alexander Fleming's discovery
Crying is the best way to release stress and tension and be happy and healthy
And my friends this is my final take on a good cry
I will cry for any one in distress and my shoulder is for you any day
Finally I do not worry , when I die who for me will cry
As I will not be there to witness , that is why ,
But I am sure some one will miss me and will have a tear to spare on that day .
Mean while let no one need cry , let no one worry , and let us all be happy .




Let me digress a little . I was asked how I remember all about my life way back from second half of December 1967 nearly a half century ago . I am happy to inform that my memory is good and I can with felicity retrieve information tucked away in the deep crevices , niches , nooks , corners , gryri and sulci of my brain which inhabits the space between my two ears . My eyes and ears may at times try to play truant , but not my memory . So here I am ready to go forward with my narration in my own way . I have already mentioned various underground tube stations I have been to starting from my base Warren Street Tube Station and the following activities were what I undertook . I posted two inland letters to my benefactors Doctor Karri Sattiraju at Kingston upon Thames and my guardian angel Sri Karri Sattireddy gaaru of Preston Lancashire , thanking both of them profusely for their help which gave me much needed confidence and security to survive in London during those initial formative days and weeks . I also wrote by way of air mail post cards to my folks back in Bhaarath all bout me and about the help I received . I registered for my Primary FRCS Examination to take place during early February 1968 . I borrowed all necessary medical books from the Lewis Lending Library . I started appearing for classes at RCS Lincoln Inn Fields . I informed Indian High Commission about the purpose of my arrival in England . I registered with unemployment welfare department Holborn and received seven pounds sterling . I obtained full registration of General Medical Council . I met my would be advisers Doctors M D RAM FRCS and P K DATTA FRCS . Now in all earnest I started preparing for my Primary FRCS due in February 1968 . I am working hard , learning , studying , working , and doing what all I can in my 33 rd year of life , me again a student having been An Assistant Professor Back In Bhaarath , but I can't live on what I had been , but focus on what I have to be as at that time during the waning days of 1967 and approaching cusp of 1968 . Wish me well and I will not disappoint my well wishers and my family - so be it ?
