The most famous dialogues of the Best Movie ever Made : SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION

Can anyone forget Tim Robbins & Morgan Freeman in Shawshank??…at least I cant..coz this one movie taught me a lot..read through these dialogues carefully..each line has a story to tell you..to teach you..!!

RED: Andy? I guess we’re getting’ to be friends, ain’t we?

ANDY: I suppose we are.

RED: I ask a question? Why’d you do it?

ANDY: I’m innocent, remember? Just like everybody else here.

ANDY: What are you in for, Red?

RED: Murder. Same as you.

ANDY: Innocent?

RED: The only guilty man in Shawshank.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

RED: Heywood, enough. Ain’t nothing wrong with Brooksie. He’s just institutionalized, that’s all.

HEYWOOD: Institutionalized, my ass.

RED: Man’s been here fifty years. This place is all he knows. In here, he’s an important man, an educated man. A librarian. Out there, he’s nothing but a used-up old con with arthritis in both hands. Couldn’t even get a library card if he applied. You see what I’m saying?

FLOYD: Red, I do believe you’re talking out of your ass.

RED: Believe what you want. These walls are funny. First you hate ’em, then you get used to ’em. After long enough, you get so you depend on ’em. That’s “institutionalized.”

JIGGER: Shit. I could never get that way.

ERNIE: Say that when you been inside as long as Brooks has.

RED: Goddamn right. They send you here for life, and that’s just what they take. Part that counts, anyway.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

RED: I have no idea to this day what them two Italian ladies were singin’ about. Truth is, I don’t want to know. Some things are best left unsaid. I like to think they were singin’ about something so beautiful it can’t be expressed in words, and makes your heart ache because of it. I tell you, those voices soared. Higher and farther than anybody in a gray place dares to dream. It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made these walls dissolve away… and for the briefest of moments — every last man at Shawshank felt free.
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

ANDY: Here’s where it makes most sense. We need it so we don’t forget.

RED: Forget?

ANDY: That there are things in this world not carved out of gray stone. That there’s a small place inside of us they can never lock away, and that place is called hope.

RED: Hope is a dangerous thing. Drive a man insane.

ANDY: You’re right. It’s down there, and I’m in here. I guess it comes down to a simple choice, really. Get busy living or get busy dying.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
RED: Andy loved geology. I imagine it appealed to his meticulous nature. An ice age here, a million years of mountain-building there, plates of bedrock grinding against each other over a span of millennia… Geology is the study of pressure and time. That’s all it takes, really. Pressure and time.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

RED: I like to think the last thing that went through his head… other than that bullet… was to wonder how the hell Andy Dufresne ever got the best of him.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

ANDY: Dear Red. If you’re reading this, you’ve gotten out. And if you’ve come this far, maybe you’re willing to come a little further. You remember the name of the town, don’t you? I could use a good man to help me get my project on wheels. I’ll keep an eye out for you and the chessboard ready. Remember, Red. Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies. I will be hoping that this letter finds you, and finds you well. Your friend. Andy.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
RED: I find I am so excited I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it is the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain… I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope.

for all those who havent seen the film yet, what are u waiting for…hurry

hehehe….

Yes, iam back and yup as for all those who missed reading me, let me remind you that i happen to be a doctor as well and in my busy schedule you cant expect me to keep updating everyday, every second of my life…but still for all those lovely souls out there eager to squeeze me  my by my neck and pull me by my hair, let me remind you, thats not gonna happen…heehehe…anyway, give me a feedback after you read it just as you always do…

once again, iam typing this from the balcony of my beautiful home in calicut and for all those wonderful friends who know my home and locality must be aware that i live in a world surrounded by beautiful girls travelling up and down the road, so the chances for spelling mistakes and distractd statements are a thousand times more possible!!please ignore and dont bother to correct my grammar, cos iam not gonna improve!!!

so, i started my day with a question in facebook..

what 11 letter english word does everyone pronounce incorrectly?

And honestly i didnt get a single reply, may be cos all my friends are busy checking the profile of hot people from opposite sex!!or not really smart enough to answer that question!!!

whatever, and for all those who read that question above and  are still wondering what it might be, the answer is INCORRECTLY!!!!

yup, so another lazy valentines day.

Not a single soul proposed me..nyway its never too late!!!!

Was reading the update of a ‘single’ friend in New york. Jai says that he felt like being a gay when he was walking through the streets today. bro, never mind, hamara number bhi ayega( our time will also come!! nyway, im not gayyyyy!!!heheehe)

Had a busy day yesterday at hospital, so that helped remove the pain of being single!!

it was indeed busy, and i think i should focus on my diet more instead of advicing my patients to take regular diet. Woke up late  yesterday, and skipped breakfast!!! DEar friends, please dont try this at home!!!HAve food at regular time

Again, it was Priya’s marriage yesterday and i couldnt go. given the fact that she is one of my closest friend and missing her marriage dosent make me happy either. Its just that i had some prior commitments and i just couldnt make up to it..From the bottom of my heart, if you are reading this  Pepy, IAm so sorry!!!

some thoughts are really disturbing me as i say this.

I remember during the last day of my classes and before we became house surgeons i remember joking to pep that i wouldnt miss being on her marriage. As time pass by, i think we let off such sentiments i suppose. iam sorry for saying this like that..i could have made it to there but i had an important medical camp to attend and iam not making exuse here..

To all those guys out there who probably try to avoid such important things in the life of their friends, let me remind you even before you think of trying that, its not actually a good feeling after you miss that event..A sort of gulit keeps pricking you up, on why you didnt go there. So if you dont have a proper excuse never miss such days in the life of ur friends..

yes, for all those who are curious to know what iam reading now, well, iam reading interpretation of dreams, by Sigmund Freud and its a good read for those who are curious to read more about dreams…for the rest of you docs out there read Davidson or Bailey!!!!

What more, well..i gtta be studyin now, get u later…

preparing for pg entrances..

books again

love all..spread love,

Nidhi

Happy new year

HAPPY NEW YEAR FELLAS….

hehehe…so its the last blog of the year and as all of u know, iam just a very lasy blogger!!! somehow i felt that i cant just give up on blogging yet and here iam writing my final blog of this year..iam stressing on the final blog of this year becase, i do want to blog more again….

And finally , today my posting  at mental hospital came to an end..had a great time there..meet a lot of patients…some maniacs and some on the verge of depression..hope that all of them get to the best state of health that they get and hope that the doctors there are able to deliever the best treatment ofr their patients…meet a lot of new friends..house surgeons..and pgs..

The posting lasted for one month and i travelled every day up and down to kottakal from my home..it was a hell of a journey bt im glad im still healthy after all those travels

what are my new year resolutions..well i havent made any of them yet..

so what lies ahead of me in the future?

well..have to work hard…be better than before..

where was i the last few days…

well..i was practically invisible from the networld for the last few days and as i check, my last update came 68 days ago. i could have waited for one more day to make that magic number into 69..but then the number is a bit….hehe..you know!!!

where was i?

well, ui was busy behind a lot of stuffs..ofcourse too lasy to even make an update about my birthday celebrations.

just like every year, this year also the day passed fine on september4th. and as usual i had all my old friends around to wish me on my birthday. i kept wondering, havent i started getting a little oldie!! ofcourse, the sins are there but then again, iam still young at heart..

yup, did wonder when some of my close friends did fail to remember my birthday. Again, i dont make a girly fuss when people forget my birthday, but the thing is that it makes you realise that just like myself all my friends are moving fast with their own life. who knows if ten yeaars from now, the same people will be the people i call as my best friends..

Again, my convocation ceremony went smoothly on september 15th and 16th this year. just like anybodyt in medical proffesion this day is a much anticipated and celebrated day, and just like all, me and my friends did have a lot of fun. My abscence from the net has something to do with my convocation ceremony. Actually me and my friends were too busy organising this event that we didnt have much time to spend. even my clinical days were compromised a bit, but i believe my people will understand

this fast article is just to assure my fans that iam fine and fellas i will soon be in with some really good articles

till then behave yourself.

love,

My latest updates

well..its a good and tiring morning here, coz i stayed up all night to see spain win the world cup. So, iam on leave today and its raining a bit outside my beautiful home at calicut. its so wonderful and relaxing to stay at home today.

Well, the octopus did it again. But i wouldnt like to call it this way. The match was interesting and Holland did put up a good fight.

so, will be going to hospital after a while.

just for all the sports lovers..its all about putting that big fight to win..the result may be whatever, but do what you love the most, at the best of yourself

love,

nidhi

SO, where do i start..well, iam perfectly enjoying my sunday at my home finally..its been a while that i been at my home and its sunny today….Though i say a lot to someone concerned that i love the rain very much, today the sun has really turned me go crazy..Am i missing something, or am i enjoying my being single status  at home..Watever, its good to have Mom made food at home!!

Yes, the match..Good that German’s won and think they deserved that much!! and thanks to them for throwing Argentina out..ofcourse, i love Argentina play..but the reason is just my loyality to Brasil and to be honest i will change my team once India starts playing world cup..I mean it fellas..Oye, its Football, not cricket world cup!! Stayed up and watched Germany win!! Also, glad that Paul, the octopus is still alive, Hehe!! I really wish that Spain will lose, just because i want Holland to win!! Am i hurting my readers at Spain..Well, my statistics say that i got more readers at  Spain than in Holland, but iam sorry fellas, i do what i love..plzz NO OFFENDS!! Hope both the teams play well and fairly, no one gets hurt and wish that Villa get the golden boot!!Now, iam not supporting Holland cos of any statistics or anything, but just that since everyone are cheering for spain, i want to support the other! Dad dont care who wins, My sis says Spain and even my lil bro is saying SPain(what a pain!!) i guess, i will have to watch the match at my bedroom alone  if all here are so keen to see Spain win!!

YUP, iam sorry for the little sarcastic comment i made on my Facebook, that i want to see PAul, the octopus killed..well, i dont  mean it literally and iam against any violence or murder!! its just that i dont like to believe the fact that the Argentines or Brazilian’s lost cos he predicted so.. it belittles the effort of the winner or the struggle of the looser!

Then what am i not sorry for! well, my last entry named Strangulation had me make an annoying statement over a person i found to be enjoying himself when he annoys his subordinates and his co- workers. Well, i do believe that the entry has personally offended the person  i know..!!so, what!! let me explain..Whoever treats his juniors badly, is actually stting up wrong examples for the others..the same people will learn from his character and will be forced to do the same to the people under them..so, it would become a hierarchy dominated area and in medical field we are independent to take our independent decisions. so, my dear friend better change your character, you really need behaviour modification. I  really get tired sitting with people who can talk so much gossip about others, and do behind the back talking of one another..my word of advice to my dear readers and friends, plzz dont try this at anywhere!! it deglams your own self image. How can i say so much against someone and believe that iam doing is right?? well, personally, i dont hold any grudge against anyone and there is no other  way i can explain it to the world that we must be watchful of our character!! My policy is simple, you let me live peacefully and i let you have the same…

Sorry, got carried away!!Again, last week i finished reading ‘ Doctors’ by Erich Segal. Should i say, that i found the book to be very interesting and at the same time very much associated with the life of we medicos..Behind the four walls of the campus and in the coridoors and classroom there is also life there and we are all merely normal human beings, blessed with the power to heal and cure.

i finished reading the book on Doctors day, which is the first day of this month and iam glad that i read this book.

The story involves around the life of Barney and Laura. Best friends from childhood and the reasons that lead them to take up medicine, the life inside the medical college, a lot of scenario that extends from euthanasia, medical ethics, friendship, apartheid etc..

All these things are moulded so beautifully and within the grade so that even a layman can know the pnemonic to learn the 12 cranial nerves in the human body!!I found it interesting more because, i have earned a lot of things in my medical life, just like Barney, the central character. i have my best friends here, gave me the power to be a bold man and to be expressive of my thoughts and ideas, fame and respect and above all iam glad that iam conscious of the power vested in me that tells me to heal a wounded soul both physical and mental.

The timing that i got the book to read was also wonderful.It happend after the day i told my best friend that i was confused in my road ahead of my life and she as usual being the marvellous and magnificient in my life(its a personal thing to call her that..n before you laugh make sure iam still alive..hehe) , comes up with this book she had in her shelf and once again i couldnt help being submerged into reading this.

it did help me realize where my area of specialisation should be. i guess i should go for it!! Before i tell you what it is, i need to make some important arrangements and i will let you know once iam on!!

whatelse, whatelse…!!!

hehe, thats a dialogue iam very much used to say, when iam on phone for a long time!!!Am i talking too much today!

hey, thanks for reading pal..hope you had a good time reading my blog..remember that love is the fundamental basis of medicine..So, be in love, have love in heart and give love a lot..

lots of love,

Nidhi

strangulations!!!

sometimes i wonder if some people are born just so that they could, you know possibly strangle the neck of their fellow coordinators!! Damn, i hate it when someone treats their fellow subordinates so badly..now, why am i speaking this. well…those who need to know will defenitely make out of this comment…

What else??

well, i went for a medical camp last week at Thallserry and it was fine. One thing, i like about technology is that it helps you stay connected even when you go to any remote place. Well, i was using the gps system in my phone and thanks to google earth, i could know the location and the travel details prior hand.

Again, sad that Brasil lost out..hmmm, my brother will be cheering a lot over it. SO, i just have one option remaing, join him and cheer for spain!!!well, i say Holland!!what fun if two people in the same family cheer for the same..lets see who wins..lol

now, for my international readers, i want to share a few piece of information about the scenario at my nation. The last week the petroleum ministry increased the petrol prices, and there has been two hartal already in my part regarding that. Well, iam not really sure if it is the right thing to distort public life in this way, but again as a doctor i have faced worst cases on such days!!

what really worries is when a patient in need for emergency medicine treatment is denied it because of strike the necessary treatment he should get if he was brought to a hospital.

iam feeling very sleepy now..so, let me conclude..will be on soon

being doctors

so, the week went rather hectic, the long days at the op, and the fact that iam dealing with the kids department more so that keeps me busy all around and again there was this rather rainy sunday duty, keeps me wet all the time.

so, what happens in my life rather than the usual breathing and eating ans so so procedures?

well, iam still alive, breathing and as usual my life tells me that my reason for existence is for a purpose, and everyday i wake up, iam assured that i have , cause iam lucky privileged to be a doctor.

well, there are a few interesting turn outs, especially because iam dealing with a lot of kids these days and sometimes i keep wondering about the slight mistakes he makes when he sends some kids to earth, certain congenital anomalies like mulitiple sclerosis, melanoma,,,etc. iam not on the angry side, i know they are all the most beautiful people in the eyes of God and the family that loves them so dearly or we doctors who live to see these things close to heart …why , that bothers me on one side is because of certain defects, i myself had to face during my early days and even some of those problems that have still stayed with me. There have been times when i have felt sad just because the way he created me with those defects, and have left me  frustrated and angry.  There were times ,when i felt lucky to be alive and doing better than some of the people i encounter around my life. but this is not the right way to be reassured. Today, i rather feel solace when i find that i can be of a tiny hope to the people who suffer, i can share with them the frustrations and anger some of them go through, cause of their defects, and help them motivated to go ahead.

There are certain cases such as a multiple sclerosis patient, i find very touching to my heart. well, i dont want to share much on it, so as to protect the identity of  my patients, yes but i do hope to start a program on the ways to help people with complicated diseases such as this, tro go ahead and also on ways to help the people who are less privileged to afford the treatment. well, my idea is  just a seed about to germinate, so if any of my readers are having anything to do with any of this, please hit me with your ideas and opinions and we shall move ahead with them.

other than that, well, i have been reading DOctors by Erichsegal and havent finished it yet,.. so the review will be there in  the next week edition of the blog, hopefully..

my time dosent lent me the luxury of more hours at net now, so happy living till the next time i get to you all..

and yet, if you are watching football matches at world cup and cheering for your favorite team, remember, iam cheering for Brasil….so, lets see, if the best men wins!!!

love and spread love,

nidhi

Well..i have never been so busy like this in the past few months. The CME programme at college and a lot of constrains over it and in a way iam a little bit tired though the food is great these days.

So  it rains here now and then and the mood is awkwardly romantic and iam shameless to admit that iam still sadly single!!!

Cant remember doing anything great recently other than fighting with a good friend, which happens more like a circardian rhythm, so which is very normal now and then and iam so confident   on the fact that my friendship with her wont bother on any ground that iam still bluffing over it on net!!!

yup, so me and three friends of mine recently  had this wonderfully stupid idea to visit another friend. all sounds normal till here, but it was to walk to his house in the rain under two umbrella at midnight for more than a kilometer with the aid of lightning as source for vision. let me tell you, i really was against the idea of doing this risk, but once i started walking for a while, i realised how wonderful life can be to make such an act of stupidity with people we call as dear friends. i know it was stupid, but the visit was for an important cause and iam glad that the cause was for good.

So, let me tell you what interested me, one it was fun to feel that little risk once in a life when all the time , i have lived uinder the cradle of comfort. it was a honestly glad feeling to know that we have our friends with us at the time of emergency.

Again, i was saddened with the crisis that a lot of family around us faces. ofcourse, living in a hospital, we see them everyday, but when we see the sadness in some part of the world sometimes, i dont know why, i do feel a little upset. Recently on the manglore plane crash, my friend messaged me that nothing is permenant..well, nothing really is, but iwant to leave an impression of myself on everything i do, before i die..

Havent been to home for a while..so looking forward to go there soon and mom has started complaining that iam less emotional these days…but dear mom if my sis shows you this, i want you to know that i love you a lot though i cant express it always..love

so, spread love as usual…

bye for now

A world of inequalities

We live in such a world of inequalities. A world where people are biased on the basis of Sex, colour, religion, caste, height and anything and everything you can name it!!

Two days ago, before i was going home from my hospital i happend to read a journal that appeared in a magazine from Mathrubhumi, which happens to be one of the leading media group at kerala. So, this article was about the naxalites and maoist growth in some parts of India and i was made to keep wonder about why we have so much of social problems.

Lets me puts this straight from my heart. We claim ourself to have the biggest democracy, The 7th largest country in the world and yet we have all the problems that are resemblance and replica of the conditions of some of the third world countries.

Why do i blame??

The reason is as simple as clear water. India is independent for more than 50years and also a republic nation . And yet in many part of the nation the common problems the people are facing include Unemployment, illiteracy, lack of food and famine and many insecurities which are created on the basis of sex and religion.

Ever since i can remember i have won essay competitions by writing the same clieshe of words on corruption, unemployment etc by blaiming them on the Government policies, population etc, But today i guess i have realised something more. The real people responsible for this is not the politicians, but the people, which include me and you.

The people include the set of people which corresponds to the entire population of the nation. Are we doing the right job as a lawful citizen. Ofcourse, most of us pay taxes, We educate, we work, we earn money, we do contribute to the Governing process of the countries, then what wrong have we done.

DONt we all promote a corrupt society knowingly or unknowingly

I honestly believe that 50 years is more than enough time for a nation to develop from a developing nation into a developed nation. You may accuse that there are curbing factors such as population, unemployment etc But are they really a big excuse!! its a shame that even today there are places in this nation where people have to live in forests and again they dont get any of the democratic benefits most of us enjoy. There are landlords and feudalism where a few people treat the underdogs as instuments to rub their whiplashes..how inequal is our world.

Are we a poor nation?

Ofcourse not, check the list of the forbes billionaires and the number of indians in it. What an irony. but i wouldnt blame them as they are doing things what is good for their interest, the interest of their company and the interest of their shareholders. But is the Government doing enough.

Why is India corrupt? We may say that the politicians take bribes from the rich and hence the rich gets richer and those who cannot afford it gets poorer.

is it the only reason?

Look at every corner of our life? At most of the places we ourself are negligent. From the level of the third class workers to drivers and many at the middle class want to earn an extra “TIP'” from the other.

You go to a hotel and observe what happens. YOu have your food, pay your bill and show off by giving a generous tip to the waiter. ofcourse, most of us have done it..But i think this is where the problem lies. We expect a more premium service from them for what they are supposed to do even without the tip, and then what we are doing is promoting a rend that we need to get paid for serving better!!

The same thing happens at all places and in this way we indirectly promote corruption.

India has been ruled by all sort of political parties and yet still the inequalities prevails. Perhaps if All in the nation retained equal status that wouldnt be profitable for all.

So how do we contribute to the society?

By electing A better Government that serves for the needs of the people and by being aware of our democratic rights and by standing as a man against social evils like corrution, promote education, equal rights for all and prevent any bias, even it be gender based..

Recently, a friend of mine send me an email on irony. The life of two classes in Mumbai. The pics had the houses of the residents of places like Malabar hills, like the billion dollar home of the Reliance man, or the fortress with the name meaning “WISh” or “prayer”(ofcourse every indian knows the resident, i guess, else google for Mannat) and on the other half of mumbai the life of the chaiwallas and the slumdwellers.!!

vs

Everyone of us dream of a comfortable life for us and the people around us, a slight luxury which is never harmful for the growth of our nation. But what ii wish is that our process of making wealth be in the interest of the whole nation and never against it. Do good for the world and the most important, Be honest. it sounds easy to says, try being honest and you will know what it really means.

I want to remember a man who taught us some of the most valuable leasons of humanity, the message of truth and non violence and yet we prefer to remember him for his shining face on a 500 rs indian currency and the easier we earned the money, the most better.

For the respect for Mahatma Gandhi, lets atleast pledge to be a good citizen, with atleast the enough courage to be never corrupt and act against corruption without looking the pros and cones of the aftermath.

Thank you for reading guys…lots of love.
