My Bloody JRs

Dr Roshan Radhakrishnan
"You bloody JRssssss !!!"

The first time that phrase was uttered by us, I doubt if there was much love in it. It was probably out of frustration after watching our new set of 8 juniors find a fresh and unique way of getting us into trouble. As CRs ( Chief Residents ; JRs stand for Junior Residents ), we were responsible for all their blunders while simultaneously, in charge of teaching them the subject. And while the two of us were definitely not the greatest options in the latter, we did our best in the former.

Each mistake would be accompanied by a "You Bloody J-Rs !! In our time, things were not so easy. Blah blah blah.. Everytime I tell you people and everytime you forget.. blah blah..." I imagine that's how it is when dealing with juniors for the first time. But soon, we learned to dissociate work from personal time and got to be friends with the 8 of them - a decision we've never regretted.

From sharing in their individual unique qualities to saving them from the senior staff's anger by hiding their follies, it's been a wild ride. In less than one year, we made more memories with them than we had in the past two years.
More importantly, we learnt a lot about ourselves from them too.

This video is just a thank you note... for being the crazy set of juniors that you are..
Till we meet again,
Your "bloody" CR

P.S. A week before I left, I witnessed one of them calling her new junior "a Bloody JR" for some mistake of his. The junior complained that there was no need to be so harsh.
Her reply made me smile... "Someday you'll be proud to be a bloody J-R."
