Hyderabad’s Osmania hospital women doctor’s assault: Uncivilized society and irresponsible administration


Does this happen in any profession, while doing normal work, a female staff is assaulted  by mobs and no action is taken by a civilized society and a responsible government. 

Another shameful incidence in Hyderabad, where women doctors were beaten by mobs should have shaken the civilized society or any responsible administration and government. But in such chaotic environment, it does not make a news of importance to people, who matter and are responsible for controlling such uncivilized actions.

It is not just women rights commission, the silence of women activists, socialites etc, who cry hoarse for women rights, is perplexing. These organizations and individuals have been silent all along since the women being assaulted are “doctors”. No dharna, no protest or statement of condemn. Is that the situation that doctors are not having rights of normal human beings. 

Nearly 250 junior doctors and house surgeons have been boycotting their duties except for emergency services since Sunday night, demanding security for them and action against those involved in the attack. The strike by medicos hit services at OGH, one of the oldest hospitals in the country and the biggest government-run facility in Telangana.

Four attendants of a woman patient, who died during the treatment, assaulted two female junior doctors and a duty doctor on Sunday night, when The 70-year-old patient, who was in critical condition, died at Intensive Care Unit. Alleging that she died due to negligence by doctors, four of her relatives barged into the ICU and attacked them. It said this was the fourth incident at OGH in one month.

Lot of people including our respected leaders and some great actors talk in media about this slogan and pretend to do a lot about saving and educating our daughters. While on the other hand, those fathers who made their daughter a doctor and truly did the society proud are anguished. Their daughters have been assaulted by mobs just because they were doctors. This has bared the hypocrisy prevailing in our society .Why none of the politicians or actors, both male and female, have not taken a stand for this cause openly?  My humble request to them is to do more than mere sloganeering and tokenism,  just  show that  you really mean, what you say.

Women doctor assault- – time worse than MAHABHARTA for women doctors

Unfair prejudice against doctors distressing : shortage of docs and still delivering best, but punished and assaulted


Shortage of docs ails AIIMS emergency only one technician each for ventilator, ECG (link)

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/delhi/shortage-of-docs-ails-aiims-emergency/articleshow/58831115.cms

Times of India yesterday carried a news article which highlighted the problem of shortage of doctors and trained staff in AIIMS hospital emergency.  The number of doctors  available are less than half of those required. And if this is the scenario in a premier Institute, it does not need an Einstein brain to figure out how the problem at other places in remote areas would be.

Everybody desires to have themselves treated within few minutes of their arrival in a hospital to the best of standards, but there are many obstacles to it in the form of large patient overload and shortage of doctors. Despite shortage of staff, each and every doctor tries his best to see as many patients as possible while sacrificing his own personal life. In any civilized society, this kind of work should bring in appreciation and respect for those who deliver. But for some strange reason, possibly due to vicious campaign against doctors by media and even celebrities, the respect and appreciation for this profession is sadly lacking. Possibly it is due to inadequate root cause analysis of the real issues. News items like these will probably help public realize the problems doctors face.

Despite working in such conditions, they are still abused, assaulted, beaten and taken to court for reasons, which are not justifiable in a civilized society. With all such problems and heavy hearts, this wonderful community still continues doing their noble work day and night to give each patient the best possible treatment within a reasonable time frame.  As compared to other professions the amount of work is more and appreciation much less.

Let’s take an example of courts where people spend lot of money and time and their cases still drag on for years. Crores of cases are pending in courts and thousands die without getting justice in their life time.  In contrast, even if there is shortage of doctors, relief to uncountable patients is provided and the quality of work is much better than other professions. As nature of work of this saviour is very high in moral hierarchy as compared to any other profession, it is time our society realized about the constraints doctors face before blaming them for the loss of optimal health care provision. Surely society owes much more to this wonderful community, but sadly this realization is unlikely in present era.

Violence at medical college Mujaffarpur Bihar(SKMCH): Revulsion, root cause analysis and early action need of the hour


This is yet another incidence of violence involving doctors and medical college. Such incidents have become increasingly too frequent even though everyone knows that it is our medical system which is not streamlined and is at fault. Such  repugnant incidents must  be universally condemned by one and all since they are against  the rules of  civilisation and are legally and morally incorrect. If the government, courts and human rights commission do not act swiftly against such incidents, soon the medical fraternity would be demoralised. This will further dampen the enthusiasm and morale of medical community and doctors. Doctors are blamed unnecessarily mainly due to involvement of touts and certain non medical people which are not under any regulation, and are invisible to the patient. Doctors have to fight a double battle instead of focussing solely on treatment of patient.

Most painful aspect of the problem is that society, media and courts no longer feel revulsion for such acts.  Such devastating events to medical profession are passed off casually. A new thought process of “such incidences do happen” is taking shape in mind of society. I want to emphasize again that the long term repercussions of neglecting these incidents will be heavy and if the root cause is not treated, it will surely kill the medical profession.

Doctor’s assault at Saroj hospital Delhi: Kalyug for doctors ?


Possibly society does not need qualified doctors anymore.  The way physical assaults are increasing and no apparent government actions to stop these assaults, Doctors are sitting ducks for punishments, lawsuits and assaults.  With continuous instigation going on from prominent people and celebrities, doctors have become punching bags in place of inept medical system and invisible medical industry.  Government, human right commission  and courts have maintained silence on these issues.

Such incidents are likely to deter children from taking up this profession. How can we expect bright children to take up this profession if such episodes keep recurring?   Real KALYUG for medical fraternity.

Doctor’s wonderful global community- A reasonable and civilized society would always be indebted to doctors


When death stalks someone, be it in a day or at midnight ,or if anyone is in life threatening emergency of any type, when one starts having chest pain with sinking sensation or severe breathlessness that gives a sensation of suffocation, or a sudden unconsciousness that gives a feeling of impending death, just imagine whom one thinks of or rushes to. The only person working at most odd times at that dreadful moment, a Samaritan, whose mere presence and touch of hand gives one a sense of comfort and reassurance, is a doctor. The person who helps you always incessantly, in any corner of world at that time is the doctor. At these times he is the man who is looked upon to do a miracle. And most of the times miracle does happen. He is not concerned with one’s caste, race, religion, colour or political affiliations. You may not know him, neither would he have known you before this time. Still he will not hesitate to help one at odd hours late into night to treat the emergency. Thousands of patients in this whole world are relieved of their pain, agony and disease every minute by this hard working and wonderful community of doctors. Lives of a good number of patients out of these are routinely saved. This process happens every minute, day in and day out, all over the world. Even if one pays something in private setups for such services, sense of indebtedness still should prevail for saving a life and for timely help in a reasonable thinking and civilized society, as the money paid to the Samaritan for this great act is usually even less than what someone pays for a decent dinner in restaurant. But it is not about the money, it is about how the society perceives this act. It depends on one’s outlook whether he sees it as a noble Samaritan act or as that of a worker in a hospital which is taken for granted.

And if someone is not satisfied unto one’s uphill and unrealistic expectations, can one just go ahead and assault the saviour or drag him to court or vent his one sided version to media which is ever ready for one sided stories? The interpretation depends upon the reasonable thinking of our so called civilised society, which includes celebrities (revered for any possible reason), leaders and prominent figures. Recently, female doctors have been assaulted by mobs and these celebrities, who have sometimes fanned unholy sentiments against doctors, have not uttered a word. This reflects actual hypocrisy of these celebrities and society as a whole who project doctors in bad light unnecessarily. And although this affects the medical profession in a very negative manner , it is ultimately detrimental to patients only (I will explain that in my later article).

But definitely all these actions with which society and celebrities treat their saviours reflects upon the perceptions of the society and whether it is civilized enough to recognize and respect the good work done by a saviour community.

Beti Bachao Beti Padhao vs assault of female doctors:silence of leaders and great actors: need more than sloganeering and tokenism


Lot of people including our respected leaders and some great actors talk in media about this slogan and pretend to do a lot about saving and educating our daughters. While on the other hand, those fathers who made their daughter a doctor and truly did the society proud are anguished. Their daughters have been assaulted by mobs just because they were doctors. This has bared the hypocrisy prevailing in our society .Why none of the politicians or actors, both male and female, have not taken a stand for this cause openly?  My humble request to them is to do more than mere sloganeering and tokenism,  just  show that  you really mean what you say. People look up to leaders and popular actors and actresses and am sure if they are vocal about their criticism of such behaviour, media too will take note of it and highlight this issue.

female doctor assault: silence of human right commission, woman right commission

female doctor assault: era worse than MAHABHARATA for woman doctors

Doctor (including women doctors)assault: Silence of courts, human right commission, commission for woman rights is appalling:


  Human rights of doctor community have been grossly violated by physical assaults. It is painful to see that the authorities that are supposed to take action have maintained a silence all these years about this issue.

Even courts who have vehemently raised concerns about cruelty against dogs have shown no concern about issue of cruelty against docs (doctors).

Despite reports of assault against female doctors,  commission for rights of women have maintained an inexplicable silence till now.

What is role of human rights commission, if rights of a hard working community like doctors are violated and what is it supposed to do? I really fail to understand what else will it take to shake them out of their stupor ?

 If the courts, the commission for women’s rights, and the human rights commission are maintaining silence, is it because the rights of doctors were never clearly defined and outlined.  The duties of a doctor have always been enumerated but the rights have never been discussed. Isn’t it time that we discuss this important question  “What are the rights of a doctor?”
