15 MINS INSIDE A COFFIN
Updated: Jun 28, 2022
I was just put inside an MRI machine for the first time. Regular post-50 check-up. Nothing serious... But I suffer from intense claustrophobia and began to panic like hell. After having lost my mother not so long back, it felt like sliding inside the red hot electric furnace.... After about 5 attempts, I managed to maintain calm after doing some pranayam... First, it's a disgusting feeling. But for all of 15 odd mins, I was inside, I began asking myself that if this was the last moment what would I wish. The answer was...... to be with family.
So, I asked myself what's if it's a near-death experience and I'm back, what would I want to do first.....the answer was, "binge on Mutton Biryani from good old Shiraz and Mutton Chaap floating in Ghee from Royal, Kolkata" .....I almost could hear the doc say, "That's the bloody reason why you are inside that horrible coffin-like thing"
