I remember some time ago I had written a snippet about how I gravitate towards gravity. Talking of this grave topic, magnetic properties cannot be left far behind, right? I started out my career of imitating a pumpkin many decades ago. Let us say when I was around 2 years of age. We lived in a rented house, but the relationship with the owners was extremely close-knit. All their relatives and friends knew my parents and called them Appa and Amma (because my sis used to call them that). In the spirit of that family feeling, my mom went over to their house one day because they wanted to make upma and did not know how to do it. Amma went to demonstrate. Their relatives daughter a year older than me was a handful or wait, she was two handfuls. When all the moms were in the kitchen, she and some other kids went up the stairs to the upper floor where my neighbours used to run a school. My investigative spirit being kindled very early in life (I even popped a beetle into my mouth once, in order to study the edible properties of beetles at a very early age), I followed them upstairs. When they came down, I did not know how else one did that other than by imitating a pumpkin or Humpty Dumpty. So I did that and ended up with a broken clavicle. Later on in life, once I went to school, there was never a dearth of occasions when I demonstrated practically the properties of gravity as well as magnetism. I would gravitate towards earth, let out some blood (which by the way was full of iron), get a big, red wound, which would grow septic, then I'd get fever, get penicillin shots, after which the wound would start to heal ..... until I fell and broke open the same spot on my knee or shin ..... go back to the doctor, follow the same routine again and again ..... till the doctor got exasperated with me and told me not to come back to him the next time!!! Broken chins, feet slit open with carving knives followed up with stitches were all in a days work. At some point, I got down to mulling over why the same wounds kept getting hit again and again. Fine, I could fall and get hurt, but why at the same spot? That made me mull over the theory of the magnetic properties of wounds. I seriously intended investigating this topic some day but various other jobs made me postpone this project. Until today. I tore a ligament in my ankle 3 weeks ago and had my leg in plaster. Over the last two days, the plaster suddenly took a serious dislike towards the inner aspect of my other ankle. At every occasion it has been lashing out and there is a tiny wound, whose appearance is quite deceptive. It is like one of those 'lavangi mirchis' which are small but are extremely spicy. That little wound hurts and also exhibits the magnetic property. Two consecutive days the plaster kept lashing out at the wound. Today I decided to get the plaster off. Believe it or not, the wound called out to my other foot while walking today and said 'aa bail mujhe maar'. I think this topic of 'magnetic property of wounds' seriously merits investigation. Any sponsors for the study? Volunteers are also welcome.
