An essay that I wrote for my school’s Anatomical Gift Program Ceremony has just been published in Pulse!



It’s wonderful to write to new readers, and to continue to think about medicine and the liberties that it gets to take with the world around us. We are such a unique profession!

    Your essay was so well written – as a patient it is heartening to know that some physicians out there still feel a reverence and appreciation for the actual person underneath the diagnosis (or in this case, cadaver).

    Samyukta, I love your Pulse essay, “Little Lady,” and I’m so glad to have discovered your blog. Lately I’ve been reading Rita Charon’s book, Narrative Medicine, and I think your essay perfectly expresses the sense of wonder and gratitude that doctors and other health professionals can have when they open themselves up to the stories their patients are telling them, whether the telling comes through the voice or the body.

    Thank you.

    I can see a sense of maturity and human touch to your writing since you have joined the Medical school. Excellent way of blending the Medicine with writing. Keep it up!
