It was me who was listening to all this mess,

and I didn't have anyone to whom I could confess.

It's not always the doctor who feels,

it's also her family who has to deal.

In this tough situation, she has to look after her family, one at the hospital and another one at home.

She would not let her Hippocratic oath go futile, and her face always had a charming smile.

Her family would support her at all times, but then would also ask her, “Why YOU?”

The father told his daughter, “It's okay if you don't get a salary or an extension.

It's better you stay at home and live on my pension.”

If it were a war, you would not have asked your son to come back in between.

It's the same for us papa, even if you find me mean.

We can't let our patients die in vain, if this happens, it will be more than pain.

And You????

Yes, You!

You wanted to beat them, throw stones at them only because they were trying to keep you safe?

Try to imagine being in their place.

They don't want anything in return,

Let them do their job, and you do your job by respecting them when it's your turn.

Believe Me!!

Being from a doctor's family, I have seen both glitter and pain in their eyes.

But I have so much respect for them guys.

Financial support and sponsorship

Nil.
