  1. Dear doctors , such clinics are needed in every city & every
    village try do some social service to the society . Hats off to the Doctors who are serving and starting these clinics ,

  2. For one rupee you will have to pay back lac\’s of rupees and face medico legal consequences.This is new India and no one is spared.You should safe guard your self from the President of India, or else one fine day you would be just accused of molestation while doing a delivery in a ladies compartment.Sorry but this is Modern and New India.There is no Justification for the rights you are doing for society, but one wrong and a complaint from any one in this country will land you in Sever problems and no Law maker will come for help.

  3. Dear doctor , pl don\’t discourage if some one is doing something good. if possible help them.
