Covid has been treated by doctors at great personal cost. It has resulted in even death of healthy doctors and nurses, thousands of them have stayed away from their families, for the sake of patients. But does that kind of unparalleled sacrifice has resulted in any enhancement of respect or prestige to the medical profession. Has the death of medical professionals, while serving ailing fellow human beings was enough to halt the oppression of this gentle and humble community by administrators. Was it enough to stop physical or verbal assaults, legal or financial exploitation. Was it enough to alter the course of oppression by medical industry or moral blackmail by society. Sadly it is getting more worse. Doctors and nurse have been reduced to sacrificial lambs, that are easily slayed, when administrators want to put themselves on high moral pedestals.
This order of district collector to arrest a doctor for raising a voice for raising serious administrative issues, for speaking the truth and not for some alleged mistake. one naked example of how medical fraternity is being suppressed.
The young aspiring doctors need to watch these times carefully, to understand completely, what they are getting into. Even while embracing death for welfare of other human beings, does not get them deserved respect, one needs to be careful about the coming times.
The contribution of doctors towards society is not recognized rather defamation of medical profession as a whole continues unabated.Doctor's dignity is sacrificed blatantly to prove greatness of administrators.General behaviour of people is far from the sense of decency towards doctors and nurses. Aspiring doctors need to watch bashing of medical profession and all such factors. There is possibility that earning a medical degree puts them at a lower pedestal in society.
