Hello World,

Welcome to my site. I am Dr Shishir Srivastava; paediatrician and blogger. I recently published my first book. I love reading, writing and travelling. I write both in English and in Hindi. All my poems are in Hindi and the stories, article and opinions are in English.

I have over twenty years of experience in private practice as a paediatrician. I Am an alumnus of T N Medical college Mumbai and that of Modern School Barakhambha Road, New Delhi.

About my first book; RAGE AGAINST THE DYING OF THE LIGHT. It’s a combination of fiction and memoir. The book is as much a reflection of my life as it reflects the lives of every other medical student, doctor and a father. The book is divided in two parts, and in the words of legendary Mr Gautam Gambhir, “If part one is a joyride taking you through the sweet curls and reminiscence of your youthful days then the sombre and poignant mood of part two will sheer you apart. The feeling of impending doom will keep you hooked right till the end.”

Enjoy reading my blogs and the book.   

Follow me. Happy reading and yes, if you need my opinion get in touch with me.

My First literary creation


मेरा अंतः मन एक कुरूक्षेत्र,

छिड़ा है महाभारत,

मेरे अस्तित्व और मेरी आकंक्छाओं के बीच।

एक तरफ सौ दिशाओं में फैले

अकांछाओं के कौरव हैं

तो दूसरी तरफ मेरा अस्तित्व,

एक अकेला अर्जुन।

अधर्म के इस युद्ध में,

अर्जुन कई बार छलनी हुआ

अर्जुन परास्त भी हो जाता अगर,

मेरी जिजीविषा ने उसे हर बार

फिर खड़ा ना कर दिया होता ,

फिर पुख्ता ना कर दिया होता।

जैसे मिट्टी के खिलौनों को

आग में जला कर पुख्ता करते हैं।

सोचता हूं क्यों न करावों को

उनके बनाए लक्छाग्रह में ही

जलाकर भस्म कर दूं,

मगर मैं ऐसा नहीं कर सकता क्योंकि,

अगर अकांछा ही नहीं होगी

तो मेरा अस्तित्व भी नहीं रहेगा।

मेरा अंतह मनएक कुरूछेत्र,

छिड़ा है महाभारत।

यही महाभारत मेरी जिजीविषा है

जो मेरे अस्तित्व को रेखांकित करती है

उसे पुख्ता बनाती है।।
