Anusuya amma

The convulsing fat lady suffering from multiple organ failure was lying on the bed next to mine. So many medical apparatus kept working on her. The senior doctors always gave those extra pauses to her. And the junior ones always surrounded her because she was the source of live learning.

Every time the monitor raised alarm, the nurses kept her from sinking by slapping her delicately and waking her loudly. And she kept coming back to life from the dead. The fight between the will and the darkness was so clear. A very thin line separates life and death but your will and little outside help keeps you alive. The balancing act of Anusuya amma continued...
