Mumbai thoughts from Indian Physician

Our good blog friend Vijay is a radiologist in the state/province of Tamil Nadu in India. Like the rest of us, he learned of the situation in Mumbai via twitter. And, those of us who know Vijay were sending supportive "tweets" when we were watching all the live coverage on television/internet.

Vijay recorded a Scan Man Speaks podcast yesterday to share his thoughts on the situation. Podcasts are so cool in that it really brings the blog off the page - and lets you hear the passion and emotion of the writer. The podcast is about 20 minutes long and you will need iTunes to listen to it. The last five minutes of the recording are very good. I also encourage you to subscribe to the Scanman twitter feed to get the thoughts of a citizen of India during this tragedy.

Thank you Dr.A. For giving me the idea, for this post and the kind words and above all for your empathy.

PS. A technical clarification - The podcast is in .m4a format, the so-called enhanced podcast format with AAC encoding instead of simple .mp3 This format allows chapters, images & hyperlinks and gives a more complete experience when played in iTunes. But it can be played on the browser (streaming) or it can be downloaded directly from the browser window - after it has loaded completely, by clicking on the small arrowhead at bottom right and selecting 'save as source'. The downloaded .m4a file can be played on QuickTime.
