Today is National Doctor’s day and I am proud to be a Doctor & I take pride in treating people. I consider my life as a special mission to save lives and to do something good for the society. It is celebrated on July 1 all across India to honour the legendary physician and the second Chief Minister of West Bengal, Dr Bidhan Chandra Roy, as he was born on July 1, 1882 and died on the same date in 1962, aged 80 years.
However, in this year, the day holds a special significance considering the fact how our fraternity is working day and night during the COVID19 pandemic. Fighting the risk of infection by wearing PPE kits and serving the patients is what we are doing from the past few months. We are also taking risk of getting infected and infecting our families by this virus.
Theme of 2020:
The Doctor’s Day theme this year’s stands, “Lessen the mortality of COVID19”. It includes awareness about asymptomatic hypoxia and early aggressive therapy.
To all those people who thinks that doctors are earning well:
Why do some doctors charge so much ?
Why are some hospitals so expensive ?
Yeah Aamir Khan Rajinikanth should charge the same price as Dino Morea and Uday Chopra
And movie ticket should cost the same in PVR multiplex with a recliner in Mumbai and gallery seat in single screen in jumritalayya
Does it sound crass ?
But it is fact of life
It takes money to Built hospitals will state of art technology and facilities
Good Doctors are a rare species like movie stars
It takes 40-50 years to make a good doctor
And when you buy shares of a hospital you expect returns on it
Govt spends 1.2 percent of budget on healthcare
It is reducing it every year
World average is 5.3 percent
It has washed off its hands from primary health and tertiary Health
74 percent of Indian health care is private money
Most of the tertiary health is done by private players
There is no system like NHS in India
There is no universal health coverage
When u let off the field for private healthcare then don’t except Charity from it
But having said that even the most expensive hospital in India is 10 times cheaper than USA or West
But Iphone or a Mercedes is more pricier in India than in West
Indian healthcare is cheap as our human resources are cheap
You can’t employ a doctor by paying ₹40000 (600 dollars) in US
That is the minimum wages for a doctor in India
You can’t hire a nurse for ₹15000 in U.K.
Our equipment comes from west
All our CT scans MRI Scans are imported
We pay same price as west in dollars and top of that we pay import duty
Then how we charge 1800 dollars for open heart surgery when it cost 100000 dollars in US
Cos our Doctors and nurses are paid less compared to west
Even the top most doctor in India gets less than an average doctor in NHS
We are happy when Google pays 1 crore to a fresh out of college IIM guy
But if a doctor buys a Mercedes after 20 years of hard work when his hair is greyed
We feel so upset about it and say look he is earning so much
It is Govt job to give healthcare to us
It is not job of private players or individuals
If Indian govt increases healthcare spend by 1 percent for next five years – we can provide 10 million jobs

“A shop owner placed a sign above his door that said: ‘Puppies For Sale.’
Signs like this always have a way of attracting young children, and to no surprise, a boy saw the sign and approached the owner; ‘How much are you going to sell the puppies for?’ he asked.
The store owner replied, ‘Anywhere from $30 to $50.’
The little boy pulled out some change from his pocket. ‘I have $2.37,’ he said. ‘Can I please look at them?’
The shop owner smiled and whistled. Out of the kennel came Lady, who ran down the aisle of his shop followed by five teeny, tiny balls of fur.
One puppy was lagging considerably behind. Immediately the little boy singled out the lagging, limping puppy and said, ‘What’s wrong with that little dog?’
The shop owner explained that the veterinarian had examined the little puppy and had discovered it didn’t have a hip socket. It would always limp. It would always be lame.
The little boy became excited. ‘That is the puppy that I want to buy.’
The shop owner said, ‘No, you don’t want to buy that little dog. If you really want him, I’ll just give him to you.’
The little boy got quite upset. He looked straight into the store owner’s eyes, pointing his finger, and said;
‘I don’t want you to give him to me. That little dog is worth every bit as much as all the other dogs and I’ll pay full price. In fact, I’ll give you $2.37 now, and 50 cents a month until I have him paid for.’
The shop owner countered, ‘You really don’t want to buy this little dog. He is never going to be able to run and jump and play with you like the other puppies.’
To his surprise, the little boy reached down and rolled up his pant leg to reveal a badly twisted, crippled left leg supported by a big metal brace. He looked up at the shop owner and softly replied, ‘Well, I don’t run so well myself, and the little puppy will need someone who understands!’”
Physical activity is what you required to be fit and healthy. Regular physical activity can help protect you from serious diseases such as obesity, heart disease, cancer, mental illness, diabetes and arthritis. Riding your bicycle regularly is one of the best ways to reduce your risk of health problems associated with a sedentary lifestyle.

Gaetan Piolot has spent 3 weeks travelling across the Alps, in France, Italy, Switzerland, Austria and Germany. This video presents the amazing places and landscapes that he discovered along his journey. Welcome to some of the most beautiful lakes and mountains in the world…
I (Yellowie) & Vader have been together for a couple of years, we had our ups and downs over the past few years. As we had a tumultuous relationship this past few months, I thought this is the end of our bond and I even started preparing myself emotionally to be single again.
Stay home and stay safe..is the only medicine found till now for Corona virus
When lock-down was announced, because of the pandemic going on we have two options: move in together or just break the relationship. As I live in a Garage-share, it will be not possible for us to be together. Then, we decided to break the relationship and move on with our lives. Vader was reluctant to break off the bond so he came with a way. Vader stays with his parents so he asked me to move in with him . I was not so sure about it and thought it will be awkward to just move in with my boy-car friend parents but then Vader convinced me to it through his sweet words as he always does. And we moved in together!
Vader’s parents inspired us to succeed in our relationship.
And two months into lock-down, we are better than ever as there’s no work pressure and more importantly absence of races made us to communicate more than ever before. We got time in our hands to spend time with each other which we haven’t in these 2 years, and feel more closer than ever.
Stay home and spend quality time with family.
Vader’s parents inspired us to support each other. After seeing them caring for each other we started to stay calm and secured during this pandemic crisis. Our friendship is reignited and we are laughing together again.
We spend our lock-down days by reading books, taking car-washes or just lie on the shed and staring at the ceiling. Yes, its alright even if your garage may not overlook a beach, or have a view of the valley, but you would feel just as relaxed.
Positive anything is better than negative nothing – except the Corona virus. So stay home and help flatten the curve.
The reason why we travel a lot is to escape the reality and the ‘stress’ we are in. Call it, physical, mental, or emotional If you can’t distract yourself at least you get the courage to deal with it.
We have come up with a strategy for reducing our time apart even after lock-down ends. I am so grateful that this lock-down helped us to improve our relationship & it has been given a second chance.
