A tribute to Dr.Michael De bakey and to Dr.Randy Pausch

WEll, both of them have inspired me immensely and will continue to do so even after their death.

Both of them passed away this month of july.Hmmmmmm

Both of them were pioneers in their respective fields.Dr De Bakey in Cardiology and Dr.Pausch in computer Technology and simulation programming.

Dr. De Bakey died at the age of 99 of natural causes. ...a ripe old age ..but i would have really preferred that i had gotten a chance to have met him in person before he passed away. (I was this close to try doing that this nov..but hey ! what is not meant to be, is not meant to be.OH NO ! I mean..he is gone..i can never meet him in flesh and blood.He is gone. ! Oh gosh.)

He was responsible for most of modern day cardiological care and cardiac surgical procedures.He is definitely my inspiration.Absolutely ! I just hope that, one day, i have many surgical procedures deviced by me put to practice all over the world too.I hear that he was a true perfectionist and that he would fire people if they did mediocre jobs.I have to sheepishly admit that i am that way too.Not that i am emulating him , but I do think i am innately a prefectionist too and I too kinda have zero tolerance for mediocres to the extent that i get a headache each time i see a person who tries to not do their job that they are getting paid for.Come on, mediocre people, if you take up a job, do some justice to it..If you don't want to do it, don't take it up at all.If you are getting paid for it, please do the job properly.

Dr. Pausch on the other hand died far too young and far too prematurely due to regrettable circumstances.He died of metastatic complications of pancreatic cancer.He was an original in many ways.He is and will always be a jewel of Carnegie M U .

I happened to listen to his last lecture that was broadcast on youtube last september.That speech inspired me to no end .Esp the part where he described how he had to face a lot of resistance and the trials he went through before he could implemen the program he had in mind at the Univ.That story was truly inspiring.That tells me that every person that did anything different had to face the music.Eventually, still they went on doing it .

I by myself stand for what i rightly believe in and try real hard to do the things i come up with in my head. I have to admit that i myself come up with very original and revolutionary ideas ,ideas that have never ever been tried before or issues that have been never been approached the way i plan to approach them .Even if it means that i have to deal with social resistance and alienation and such, I feel this strange drive to persist in spite of a lot of tears and stress on my part.So i do see myself walking in their shoes in the future.I shall gear myself up for anything to come.

Therefore, to see fellow human beings, much older than me, that went the same path that i am now struggling to go on, and to know that they achieved success inspite of having ideas that were different from everyone else, around way back then in their time too, gives me solace and gives me the courage to continue trying real hard.

I salute these great souls.I shall carry on the spirit , the true spirit of sterling courage that you guys led your lives with.I promise.I hope i live up to your reputation and one day have people writing blogs about me too, saying how much my life inspired theirs.I shall try and pass on the legacy of hard word and conviction .I promise.I promise.
