Well you may be wondering that this article may highlight the glorious history of Indian medicine and how people in India should appreciate that. But well lets just say thats not the scenario presently. Lets just say it is one of the most respected career options available in India. People are trying hard to crack the entrance exams to be in this. But the weird thing is that very parent who is actually criticising the doctors admits his/her child in the best coaching institute so that entering into that very profession becomes easy. So you can say a lot of bad things but at the end of the day you unknowingly admit that they are still the saviours of the society. That means people do not actually think that way but they are made to believe certain things by some group of people. now lets think about the so called “Group of People” who are spreading a poison in our profession.
Is it the biased media who considers themselves greater than any doctor and apparently end up channeling an artery?
or is it the fake doctors who are practicing in reputed institutions
Or is it the local goons who just waits for a moment to take out their frustration on Doctors maybe because he was unable to save an 80 yr old chronic alcoholic with liver cirrhosis . ?
Or is it our very own system who actually makes a doctor work for 10-20 hours continuously ?
All these poisons have actually misguided people about us. We still do work as hard as possible. We sacrifice our own lives for the betterment of society. So lets hope for a day when people will again start admitting that they do respect us and more importantly they need us when their mind will be free from all the influences . Then will be a time when you actually wont be hearing people mumbling behind our backs…you wont actually feel the need for greater security during a night duty…..you will finally be happy after seeing “That Smile” in the innocent face of a child who will actually admire you after you had treated him .
Lets hope for a better future…
