Psychiatrics is one of the most difficult and unexplored spheres of medicine. A psychiatrist can never know for sure what is in his patient’s mind. There are plenty of different diseases, deviations and disorders in psychiatrics. Here are the most interesting ones:

1. Alien hand syndrome (Dr. Strangelove syndrome)

Alien hand syndrome is a neurological disorder in which one of the sufferer’s hands seems to take on a life of its own. Sometimes the sufferer will not be aware of what the hand is doing until it is brought to his or her attention. Alien hands can perform complex acts such as undoing buttons or removing clothing.

2. Foreign accent syndrome

The syndrome causes people to speak their native language as if they had a foreign accent; for example, an American native speaker might speak with a French-sounding accent. It usually follows a severe brain injury, such as a stroke.

3. Capgras’ syndrome

The Capgras delusion or Capgras’ syndrome is a rare disorder in which a person holds a delusional belief that an acquaintance, usually a close family member or spouse, has been replaced by an identical looking imposter.

4. Fear of the number 13 (Triskaidekaphobia)

Adolf Hitler was triskaidekaphobic. A specific fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskavedekatriaphobia or friggatriskaidekaphobia. Tetraphobia is the fear of the number 4 in China, Japan, and Korea.

5. Working out too much (Bigorexia)

Bigorexia or Muscle dysmorphia is a disorder in which an individual becomes obsessed that they are not muscular enough. Sometimes referred to as bigorexia or reverse anorexia nervosa, it is a very specific case of body dysmorphic disorder (BDD).

Muscle dysmorphia can cause individuals to:
– Constantly check themselves in a mirror
– Become distressed if a gym session is missed
– Take potentially dangerous drugs (e.g. anabolic steroids)
– Neglecting jobs/relationships/family due to exercising

6. Collecting too many books (Bibliomania)

Bibliomania is an obsessive-compulsive disorder involving the collecting of books to the point where social relations or health are damaged. The purchase of multiple copies of the same book and edition and the accumulation of books beyond possible capacity of use or enjoyment are frequent symptoms of bibliomania.

7. Exploding head syndrome:
It causes the sufferer to occasionally experience a tremendously loud noise as if from within his or her own head, usually described as an explosion or a roar. This usually occurs within an hour or two of falling asleep, but is not the result of a dream. 

8. Trichotillomania

Trichotillomania is an impulse control disorder characterised by the repeated urge to pull out scalp hair, eyelashes, beard hair, nose hair, pubic hair, eyebrows or other body hair. It may be distantly related to obsessive-compulsive disorder, with which it shares both similarities and differences.

9. Fear of men (Androphobia)

Androphobia is an abnormal and persistent fear of men. Sufferers of this disorder experience anxiety even though they realize they may face no real threat. Androphobia is one of infinite possible phobias, and as such can be traced back to a specific triggering event, usually a traumatic experience at an early age.

10. Faking illnesses to gain attention (Munchausen syndrome)

In Munchausen syndrome, the sufferer feigns, exaggerates, or creates symptoms of illnesses in himself or herself in order to gain attention, sympathy, and comfort from medical personnel. The role of “patient” is a familiar and comforting one, and it fills a psychological need in people with Munchausen’s. 
the more severe form of this disorder is Munchausen’s Syndrome by proxy where the afflicted person will usually harm someone else to gain sympathy. usually seen between mother and child(ren)

the dunes of thar in sec’bad

you know, when hyd’badis go all out they really go all out! 
the bicentennials of sec’bad are being celebrated throughout this entire week and hyd’bad’s lit up and sec’bad’s sparkling clean (even in the presence of rainfall) and the kind of performer brought down here to commemorate the occasion are stalwarts in their own fields!

there are a group of rajasthani singers called the manganiyaars. they inhabit the barmer and jaisalmer areas and are basically troubadors. they’re old friends with hyd’bad music festivals and have their crowd favorites….they sang nimbooda-the way it’s supposed to be sung and not with AR skipping around the room like she has ants in her pants!

i walked in while the kuchipudi prog was ending and i caught the tillana part of it where the danseuese did some fantastic stuff while standing on a plate and then the whirlwind movements began across the stage in a finale.

 more people lined up in the following days are-pt.jasraj (will leave that),sivamani  (count me in), hariprasaid chaurasiya (ditto), hariharan (haath mein jaam aur ek mehfil ) and qawwals from pakistan.

thankfully they arent wasting too much time with the salutations and bakbaking by the politicos either.
oh yeah, last day-DALER MEHNDI!!!
