Sweet Talks With Roshan Radhakrishnan

Roshan Radhakrishnan, a doctor by profession & a wordsmith when he is not busy saving lives.  He can charm you with his wits & floor you with his writing skills. Recently one of his blog posts went viral. He penned his thoughts on why he would never want his kid to become a doctor in India. His honest admission struck a chord with readers across the nation & beyond. We are extremely pleased to present to you  an esteemed doctor with a golden pen & golden heart  on ” Sweet Talks With Roshan Radhakrishnan

1. Tell us a little about yourself. We will love to know you more!

Well, I celebrated the 4th anniversary of my 30th birthday this year. I’m quirky by nature, an anesthesiologist by profession, a blogger by vocation, a published author by accident and a decent friend by default. A romantic at heart and a birdbrain at mind, I gorge on TV sitcoms while my pet dogs gorge on food meant for me. I am majorly into sports too… watching them on television, not playing them!

2. Describe yourself in one line.

I’m Batman.*

(*Facts mentioned here may or may not be accurate.)

3.What motivates you to chase your dream?

I do tend to get carried away helping people chase their dreams instead of chasing my own. In recent years, I chose to make a change and have faith in my own abilities rather than looking to win over everyone’s approval. Lo! And behold! That approach has worked wonders.

4. How has been your journey so far?

As a blogger, the journey has been long and fulfilling. I started off in 2005 at a time when no one even knew the word “blog”. There were no contests or accolades back then. Since then, I am happy to see due prominence given to this medium of expression of thoughts. From a personal point of view, I got to meet and make so many new friends, I got awards at a national level and opportunities which would never have come to me otherwise, be it vehicle launches or meeting celebrities and national icons.

5. Recently one of your blog post went viral. Would you like to share your thoughts on occupational hazards & how it can be rectified?

The blog on the ailing Indian medical system went viral because doctors shared it in such insanely huge numbers, picking up the attention of both national and international news media. Doctors saw themselves and their loved ones in that post… they shared it because they wanted the entire country to see it too. They fighting an uphill battle against some demoralizing odds. I wish I knew what the easy solution to it was – the truth is that we need doctors themselves to come forward and opine on how to save the system. For my part, I did follow up by asking doctors to speak up for themselves and I am glad so many did respond with solutions they felt could stem the rot.

6. What do you see yourself doing five years from now?

It is easy to say “writing novels full time” but the truth is I enjoy being an anesthesiologist. Relieving pain is what I do… so you will find me in some operation theater for sure, making the surgeon and patient laugh.

7. If given a chance, what’s one change that you would like to see in this world & why?

I’m tired of discrimination based on irrelevant things like caste, religion et al. The innocent pay the crimes for the sins of the guilty. I would hope that we could look beyond that and judge people for who they are as individuals.
