Dear patients,

Yes, you all heard it right. This article is from a doctor to patients. You will be thinking why I have written today and not yesterday. True, there is a reason for it. Yesterday was a day which showered the blessings, congratulations and appreciation and much more and I was busy collecting it as we say in Hindi…

भर दो झोली मेरी या मुहम्मद
लौट कर मैं ना जाऊँगा खाली

My heart was filled with the mixed emotions of love, gratitude, respect and disrespect. The days and nights of untiring efforts, dedication, hard work, sacrifices by our families.

I am representing today the doctor fraternity whether Homoeopath, Allopath, Naturopath, Ayurveda…all of us are DOCTORS FIRST and then a specialist. I am sure each one of us has taken this road of SERVICE TO MANKIND with HIPPOCRATIC OATH. We wish and live our lives with that mission….as our Dr. Samuel Hahnemann writes in his book …

The physician’s high and only mission is to restore the sick to health, to cure, as it is termed.

This profession is considered as a noble profession as when we treat patients, they get well they bless us, respect us as a GOD. YOU SAVED OUR LIFE. As well said by an anonymous Hindi poet

वह भी अपनी पूरी ताकत और ज्ञान के साथ
अगर अच्छा हो जाए तो तमाम दुआएं मिलती है
हर शख्स धन्यवाद देता है
चेहरे खिल उठते हैं
पर अगर वह सफल न हुआ तो तोड़-फोड़ शुरु हो जाती है
वह ईश्वर तो नहीं है वह भी जब ऑपरेशन करता होगा
तो कामना करता होगा कि उसके हाथ कांपें नहीं
तभी तो कहता है ऑपरेशन सफ़ल है आगे ऊपर वाले के हाथ में है
जीवन बचाने वाले का धन्यवाद तो करना ही चाहिए
न सफ़ल, कोशिश तो की
डॉक्टर का सम्मान करना सभी की जिम्मेदारी है
आख़िर उसके भरोसे तो हम हैं
ऊपर वाला तो नहीं आ सकता
तभी तो उसने अपने प्रतिनिधि के रूप में उसे भेजा है

Last but not the least, when world is struggling with the pandemic of corona, we cannot forget to pay tribute to Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy. It is, in the memory of whom is this day celebrated in India. It is his hardwork, passion and dedication for this profession during the era of fight for independence.
