13/7, I was in my consulting room when news of the bomb blasts trickled in. Within minutes, the reception area wore a deserted look as all the patients rushed home. However, I had to wait it out. A patient was in labour and it made no sense to go home till she had delivered. I switched on the television only to turn it off minutes later. Burning cars, injured bystanders, the screaming and shouting……… it was just too depressing.
