Doctors go on Strike!!?? What the….!!

Recently there had been lots of commotion for they have finally announced the OBC quota… Do some people ever realize the significance of the word Quota??? Leave all that aside…Am not Communal. And am against the whole idea…
Well I just have few Questions,

1) Are the doctors not life savers?? Some ppl even consider them next to GOD…B’coz they Save lives (Not bothered that they also take the Avatar as YAMA DHARMA too). If they were so irresponsible to go on strike leaving hundreds of Dying patients Unattended. Is this what THE SO CALLED RESPONSIBLE PEOPLE DO?? And the most painful problem one can ever have is Breathing problem . You actually won’t have any pain in particular spot- that can hurt or be explained but you would undergo something terrible, and you won’t dye because of it. You just have to suffer if not given proper medical attention. Just imagine you being tied up to a heavy object and thrown into the sea….It would be worse than that am sure!! In the NDTV report while they were showing the video’s this young girl struggling to breathe- it was the most painful sight ever!! These M_R_N’s know the danger of the disease and they know the pain every patient undergoes, but still for their own issues they would punish these innocent people is it?? L_S_RS!!! What education did they get, that do not even make them realize the CRUELTY they do to the innocent!! Are they the real people to whom we must vest our TRUST, RESPECT and DEVOTION??? Never….These people who are out(even some grown up’s other than Students who are on strike not treating the patientsand who has forgotten their duty….) are the most cruel existence on earth.

They have No right to speak about whatever C quota!! For a person to have or speak about the C/ C quota’s they must all first be Human beings. And for that they must have atleast the BASIC HUMAN(E) qualities- which definitely these G_ _ Fs don’t have , they have no right to speak about the issue!!
And the punch was when this To become a Doc spoke to the media after the LathiCharge! “ They cannot treat us this way and Hurt us just to make us disperse.This is very cruel! “
And I was like “ What the HELL!!! Who speaks about what!! While you knowingly can let someone suffer in pain, let a dying patient cry in pain, leave a girl to suffocate……. What do you speak/know about HURT!!! While you all did something for the police to charge on you(or may be not..) what did those innocent people,rather patients do to Suffer this way and undergo all these???

Is it not a duty of the responsible Doctor to save life??
2)What are the SFI, AISFI…Whatever more…doing now?? Well, are you interested only in those strikes that involve some Fireworks??( for burning down Campus)


The comments page is very much open to all...

you saw a picture of a girl struggling to breathe and that enraged you.
imagine the girl is being treated by an incompetent doctor who gives her the wrong medicine,or in a frenzy does a tracheostomy?
the girl will have to suffer it.can't question the doctor, cause she doesnt know she has the right to do so.

i strongly suggest that you go and visit aiims yourself and check out the parallel opds running there for yourself. the doctors there are seeing patients even though we are on a strike.
but i dont think you'd do that.its easier to sit and comment on things.and i dont think we would have had to resort to a strike if the country's youth cared about whats happening.

My comments are similar to gurmeet said. NDTV or any news channel does a lot to sensationalise things. If we could 2 sides of the picture , then we can conclude whether it is wrong or right. In democracy like india, everybody got right to protest. "Treating protestors with lathi charge" was the worst.

"Is this what the Responsible people do??"

Am sorry dear! No! It is really sad to hear these things.The reservations are for the good of the Nation! And what is the status in the South regharding this issue??

And i think Gurmeet/ Satu have a point!! It is alright to kill 50 or more people now ,for we MAY otherwise have some doc give a wrong medicine!!! Is that what you young fellows say....
Well how many are left unaatended still...Dont give some lame excuse saying "i go attend to patient " or " My frend also does ..." You are not the only people there to save lives...There are others too who CAN!!

And boys, are you aware that the Quota is for getting into the College and not a free certificate?!...The reservations Do not mean they are givena reservation for their Doctor's Degree Certificate!! Am afraid it is only to get into the Course...and then it is their head ache to read well and pass out. They too attend the same classes, they are also taught by the same staff members, they also write the same exams with others for the same questions...any thing i left?? So you may not worry that "or in a frenzy does a tracheostomy?
" And do u think that is not happening now!!! I believe that sentence may not have any need in this context.

So do not complain about the 80% OBC in our country getting some 27% of seats.... The authorities don't make any such decision as such.

Dr's shouldn't go on strike :(

Prasanna said...

its pathetic to see the pictures. Guess India is undergoing a year of protests.

How do we know said...

hmm.. there are 2 very valid sides to this story.. Unless a really influential group does something, the government cannot be roused out of its slumber and indifference. Imagine, how will it affect the govt or powers that be if normal students went on protests? There wld be no difference whatsoever!! I m glad that docs are striking, bcs it at least shows the govt that the common man COUNTS! Am grateful to the doctors for that.
The other side is suffering patients. This is like collateral damage in a war. not justified, but unavoidable. Also, there are hajaar private doctors out there. They are not on strike - yet. This country has enough doctors to take care of a 1000 odd striking ones. I do believe that the news channels, as ever, are sensationalising things.

How do we know said...

Also, i have to tell this to Sheshadri: if u don't need a tkt to the doctor's degree, why do u need a tkt to get in? How will that help? if u can pass on the basis of quality, start by getting in on the basis of that same quality!

A very thought provoking post, Marutham. ! Needs a bit of analysis.. hmmm..
first. Is reservation good or bad. Reservation is bad, especially for the doctor profession because merit is not given importance, then, If someone wants to become a doctor, let him/her really strive hard, really learn well, because tomorrow there are going to be patients who look upto you who want to be treated without you referring back to the textbooks.!!

Next, Is it good if a doctor goes on strike. Hell! No, it isn`t. If doctors go on strike, if they don`t bother about their patients, they may die.. What the heck! YOu guys have taken the Hippocrates Oath. How can you stop to think about yourself turning your back toward a dying human being. ???

Is it wrong to protest.? Not at all, but does a protest have to be synonymous with a strike.? A big NO again! Aren`t there other steps you can take to show your disapproval. ???

If Doctors don`t give it so much of a thought what about the remaining millions ? Think for a moment, about what would happen, if the entire police force in your locality went on strike..

Gives me the creeps!!!

Still thinking..,
Srijith.

senthil natarajan said...

i think people turn to strike as their last resort!
i heard that many hospitals had thier emergency wards open even at that time...
doctors are saviours rite..but at the end of the day..they are humans with thier own demands et all... so my point is i agree with you only to an extent.... do u think that...without a strike this thought process would have reached so many people if the govt.?

Ghost Particle said...

...and when did I forget you! hahahaha...of course i remember you//

Now, doctors, pilots...everyone...so the world runs on money not will. Life sucks.

Anand Prabhu said...

its sad to see doctors going on strike... Even though the quato system might have some disadvantages... going on stike...being in such a life saving job.. is quite crazy...

Ellarukum manithaabimaname illama poiduchu... :(

Bala.G said...

why doctors alone going on for strike?...why other ppl from other fields are not taking part in the strike??

Marutham said...

@All,
Sorry Friends...I had been a little busy with the Semester exams :) Sorry for the delay.
@Satu,
That is true...but for what dumb reason do they have to torture these poor and ailing patients?? It is obvious they are very much dependent on the Government hospitals. Isn't it?? How cruel is that.....

Marutham said...

@Kutty,
Very true!! It is rather irritating that they are so irresponsible....
@Anony/Sheshadri,
You are very correct!! It is a mistake the doctors are doing.

Marutham said...

@Howdoweknow,
//The other side is suffering patients. //That is the important side........ After all they are supposed to help these ailing patients. Isn't it??
@Srijith,
A very matured analysis!!! :) Not sure if the analysis is right or wrong :) .I really like the way you have analysed...

Marutham said...

@senthil,
Hm...Are they not neglecting their very Duty?? What is the difference btwn the lorry drivers who go on strike for their own issues w/o considering the problems ppl would face and the doctors whose very education (5Yrs) is to save lives go on strike??! Is it not neglection of DUTY??

Marutham said...

@GP,
//so the world runs on money not will.//
It isn't life that sucks...but...
@Anandh,
Yeah! It is crazy.....
@Bala,
Welcome here!! :O And yenna solla vareenga...Elarukum long leave kuduthu ,strikela poga solli Vettiya aydalamna?? :P

Bala.G said...
