If the saviour that save lives 24 hours is covered in band-aids that aid the wounded heads, broken bones, will he have the will to be in the profession of saving? Will he have the will to save a life?
The saviour today has no safety, no assurance over his own life let alone the patient he treats.
The recent attack on doctors at Nil Ratan Sircar medical college and hospital in Kolkata stirred up panic among the doctors all over the country.
Amid many accusations, they are the ones who serve day and night with a motto to try and save everybody from death. They sincerely work towards it.
What people fail to acknowledge is that they tried their best to save a patient’s life before even considering to give up on his life. A false opinion has been planted in the hearts of everybody that a doctor prescribes costly medicine and benefit from the pain of people.
When they couldn’t save, the ungrateful relatives start to beat them to the pulp. Today, we are witnessing doctors fighting for their own lives. We find them serving by wearing helmets. What if the patient has severely damaged organs? How can anybody do anything to save him? He is a doctor after all, not the God that can turn death to life. In almost every case, that is exactly what the doctor does.
Nothing in this world is 100% effective. How can a mere human whose existence depends on faults be 100% effective? Yet, the doctors try to be perfect in perfecting the lives of people who suffer. They try their best to turn that suffering into comfort.
A doctor risks his entire life every single day without complaint, but we feel uncomfortable to be around the hospital for a mere hour, but they technically stay there. People with God knows what viruses they have in their blood comes for a check-up, and they serve them with a smile. If an HIV patient has a blood injury, the entire unit has to be kept under quarantine until the virus is entirely gone from the place of breakout and from the system of the person who came in contact with it.
Can the government that denied their safety face or treat a critical condition like that? They would say, we are not meant to do that, you are and will hide behind their power. Today the government is asking the doctors publicly to stop any kind of protests. Instead, they said a police officer might die in the line of duty; they are not making any issue regarding it, why are you?
How pathetic? Doctor saves lives, period. This violence needs to end before a doctor decides not to be a doctor anymore. We need them to make our lives better we are doomed if we kill the saviour.
Save the saviour, have mercy on them. They are mere humans, after all, who protect our lives. Let’s protect them.
