What is there in store for any one the next moment, no body knows. Cyclic order of the eventualities is so grotesque that there is nothing like any precautionary measure. Any thing can happen any time without even a slightest possible warning. Foreseeing such things is just out of question. I am a chronic patient of back ache for decades, but it has been no obstruction in my otherwise a regular routine of work, 12 hours on an average these days. Yesterday, as usual, I had a brief break for lunch with a mind to get back to my laptop a few minutes later. It was all okay and fine until I finished my lunch –what followed was frighteningly troublesome. I just had some coughing, I took it as some thing usual and accordingly tolerated and ignored it. I had another bout of it that shattered my whole body system followed abruptly by an unbearable back pain. It virtually crippled me to the extent that I felt totally immobilised and fully incapacitated. The back pain was so severe and torturous that I had difficulty even in breathing. My younger brother, Bishambhar, gave me some homoeopathic drops as an emergency measure on the advice of a close relation of mine, D.N. Sharma, who is a known figure on homoeopathic treatment. To my surprise, I felt like improving within minutes and was much better after an hour. The jolt so caused was so severe that even after several hours of the occurrence, I still feel haunted by the very thought of it. I took such an incapacitating ailment as a learning to my own self that, howsoever best a person tries all possible precautions on health front, there can be no exception to the nature of some ailment or the other occurring instantly any moment.
I am sorry that the release of my today’s post is delayed by several hours on account of the said incapacitation of mine.
