The first time ever I heard the word induction was in my high school . Some Michael Faraday magnetic induction motor magnetics stuff in the physics had the mention. I liked the chapter , I understood the concept , I fared well.
Later , when I got an offer from an MNC . Before I got trained in my first job I had to undergo a two-day workshop , called Induction.My school topper was utterly surprised to see me there, have an offer like hers. The conversation went awkward like this: ” I got placed on campus , well did u give an interview ah .. the one with a technical round and all .. umm???
I replied , “yes .. ” . I had no idea why she would ask a question like that, only she looked more puzzled than I was , to see me there. Nothing to blame her , I know how I gave my exams with the Hakunah Matata attitude. But how I surprised an old friend with such rewarding results ,made my induction days very memorable .
Now Induction is a word I relate to delivering a baby. I was browsing for some pregnancy tips site and learnt that most people exploit Induction techniques for trivial reasons.Neither the Doctor nor the patients actually wait for the baby’s arrival instead they schedule the baby’s birthday in most cases. I was expecting the baby at least 10 days before the due date, during my supposedly last check-up before delivery. But I sensed no false labor or other indications for the delivery to happen until just 1 day to go. As per norms , I had my induction planned on my due date if I don’t get into labor before.This time I had the choice of an Epidural , which I heard could delay the natural labor to a greater extent when taken along with the inducer. I told my doctor that I wanted to wait for at least one day after my due date and postponed the induction by 2 days much to my excitement . My doctor was proud of me, hugged me after my delivery. She appreciated my decision , “After all you let the baby arrive when he wanted to .. That’s very good ! ” . I understood Induction ,saved much time and effort of the doctor and mine. Fared well 🙂
