Doctors help us by treating our wounds and ailments. He diagnoses patients, and prescribes them medication for the betterment of their health, doctors keep lives going, they are our saviors. When I was in primary school, I would observe, that many of my friends, in essays that concerned what they wanted to be as they grow up, wrote they wanted to be doctors, and dedicate their lives towards a noble cause of helping those in need of help. In the light of the recent unrest in the city of joy concerning brutal attacks on doctors (it is to be noted, that over the years this practice has been rampant)the general mass has unanimously (well, almost) participated in demanding security, and justice(those injured) for their saviors. If we follow social media closely, the hashtag- #Saveyoursavior is being used, and beside a large chunk of the state population, doctors from different parts of the world have condemned the violence inflicted upon doctors at the drop of a hat, leading to a rupture in the system. Reading so far do you think this write-up has a political undertone? You are very well mistaken. I as an individual residing in this society have never associated with any political organisation, and this is most definitely not my propaganda. This is, however, a response as a lay-man who is deeply concerned to see how things are falling apart, and how the senior doctors are resigning one by one from their posts, yet no solution has been found as of yet. Some while condemning the attack on doctors, also condemn the nature of the protest continuing the strike indefinitely. Some allegedly see through the yellow-journalism from certain media houses, creating a breach between the doctors and the patients (it has repeatedly been said that the emergency sections are functioning) though there are claims that suggest otherwise too. As for my opinion, I do not stand by violence inflicted on anyone by anyone, and hope peace is restored soonest through dialogue with the authority. Each basket has a few rotten eggs, if one thinks that a doctor has not performed his duty which has led to devastating results, seeking justice via law is always an option. It is often difficult to keep our heads at the loss of our near ones due to insincerity, however, I do believe that most of the doctors try their best. Its essential we take things as they come, and resort to other alternatives as a form of protest against nonchalance. Well, all our hearts go out to the junior doctors who are under constant pressure working in under-staffed, super-specialty and non super-specialty hospitals. Not like the doctors are not paid for the job they do, that does not make the fact distorted that they look after the well-being of us, and we are to look after their security too. I end this article on a note of hope, that a solution will soon be found, and the sufferings of the doctors and the patients do not prolong. Let the good senses prevail, and do not succumb to political, communal traps, or inauthentic media representation. Remember, doctors and patients in this regard are not two distinctive identities, and security for the former shall invariably ensure security for the latter. We are humans, we are one.
