Radhika's Diaries

Looking for a humor blog? You've come to the right place!

A tribute to the health care providers all over the world and especially in India, because ….


It’s not easy being a Doctor in India

Calm faces, reassuring attitude,
a stethoscope around their shoulders.
In this ongoing war with a deadly virus
they are the front-line soldiers.

After years and years of arduous studies
they are in this profession by passion.
Hard earned the respected degree of ‘DOCTOR’
that white coat is not a statement of fashion.

No proper sleep, no meals on time,
over-worked and under-paid too.
Putting themselves and their families on hold
risking their lives for me and you.

They have no desire to be put on a pedestal
And treated as some celebrity.
All they ask for is some cooperation
and our support as they do their duty.

When they took the Hippocrates oath,
they were not looking for bouquets or claps.
But, in return for their selfless service,
We reward them with stones and slaps.

Dear Doctors, when you leave in the morning,
Your families worry about you;
For you not only have to fight a deadly virus,
but an ungrateful public too!

  2. Dr Bharatchandra M Desai says:

    So true detailed analysis…..perfect .
    1) overworked and underpaid.
    2) risking their own life and lastly,
    3) treated with slaps and stones.
    Life is really not easy for a doctor.
    Thanks for understanding the doctors……specifically in India.
    Are you a doctor yourself?
