Most people here know that I am an avid cricket fan, but the reason I love and follow sports is because of the stories & life lessons that we come across.
#IPL2023 has had many such moments/stories/ life-lessons so far.
A little thread on that.
1. "Don't give up because it's not over until the last ball is bowled/last run is scored."

GT vs. KKR.

29 to win off the last over.
Nobody gave KKR a chance, but this man.

2. "Cometh the hour, cometh the man!"

From questioning the heavens in last IPL2022 to showing Pakistanis a hell and to coming back in regal form, Virat Kohli from IPL2022 to IPL2023 is a story in itself. ImageImage
3. "Buddha hoga tera baap!"

2 captains who have defied age, been out of international cricket for many years, and still continue to be the pillars of their team,
Faf Du Plessis & MS Dhoni continue to prove why, "Old is gold!" ImageImage
4. "You can have the best of the best, but it's finally about having a strong team!"

16 years and counting, thank you @RCBTweets, but we have all learned the lesson.
Now focus on making sure you have 11 players & not just 3.5/4 players.
5. "No job is small!"
To keep aside your pride/ego and accept the reality as it is & take gracefully, whatever comes your way is one of the most difficult life lessons. I think we can learn from this man.

6. "You can always go one level up."

If there are players who made significantly big strides, it's these 2 young openers showing us that when the world is watching you, make sure you take your game one level up.

What are the biggest stories of the IPL2023 that come to your mind?
Let me know.
I'm hoping to add something to this thread after the finals.
Hope we have a good one

Have you ever wondered about the connection between your digestive system and your mental well-being? Today, on the occasion of #WorldDigestiveHealthDay
let's dive into the fascinating correlation between these two important aspects of our health. #DigestiveSystem #MentalHealth Image
Our digestive system, often referred to as our "second brain," plays a crucial role in our overall well-being. It not only breaks down food but also houses trillions of bacteria that form our gut microbiome & have a profound impact on our physical and mental health. #GutHealth
The gut-brain axis is a bidirectional communication system between the gut & the brain. When our digestive system is compromised, signals are sent to the brain, triggering emotional and psychological responses that can manifest as anxiety, depression, or mood swings.

"Oh, our attachment styles are different!"
You might have heard some people say this!
Some know it's importance but many people use it casually to display their rich vocabulary. But let's understand from the point of view of psychology!
A 🧵 on #AttachmentStyles
Attachment styles are patterns of behavior that we develop in childhood to cope with our need for security and love. These patterns can shape how we approach adult relationships later in life.
There are four main styles of attachment: secure, anxious-preoccupied, dismissive-avoidant, and fearful-avoidant.
Let's simplify.

A personal story of my everyday life as #Psychiatrist in India.
This might help anyone who is new to the field or thinking of entering the uncharted waters of #mentalhealthprofession
Read on.
#MedTwitter #psychtwitter
Every day, you will be reminded of the stigma by your own colleagues from other fraternities & society at large, most of whom are oblivious to the importance of mental health themselves.
Wait, but that's not why I am writing this.
4-5 years back, when I entered this field, and if I was treated this way, I would have revolted and taken the organizers of the camp to the cleaners and fumingly left the place.
But not now.

Very often, I come across people who are not able to do well in #competitiveexams and end up thinking,
Let's talk about that in this thread
When you have put a lot of efforts and sacrifice behind something you almost start 'expecting' the results 'should' come! This works quite well in theory exams of your school or college where your efforts translate into your marks!
The thing that separates normal exam from competitive exam is that even though you might have done your best someone else might have done slightly better and your ranking will suffer.
Here the eventual result is a rank which is not directly a reflection of your efforts alone! 3/n

#QALA - From the eyes of a Psychiatrist.
P.S. Spoilers ahead.
Read on for some themes I could find.
A 🧵
#MedTwitter #moviereview
#psychtwitter #mentalhealth
1. The concept of unwanted child

QALA's twin brother dies in utero, which is a big shock to her mother Urmila Manjushri, who blames Qala for taking away all the nutrition from her brother in utero & even tries to smother her. Qala becomes an unwanted child in the process.
2. Critical parenting

Though her mother tries to teach Qala the art of music, she is never satisfied and goes to on to punish her by keeping her out of the house in the chilling snow as Qala is not able to perform to her satisfaction.

"You're so skinny!"
"You're so fat!"
We have all either said that/heard that.
But here's why I believe that commenting upon someone's physical attributes in a social setting is not a good idea..
A 🧵
✔️ There could be various uncontrollable reasons behind person's weight issues- we have a tendency to assume that it is just because of overeating/poor lifestyle/lack of exercise. So when we make such a comment, it could be really triggering for many people.
✔️ We all perceive such comments differently. A person may take a comment about his increased weight as a challenge for himself while for another person it could be a blow to their self-esteem.
