Adopt ethical practices, human traits: HRD Minister tells doctors

New Delhi : Adopt ethical practices and have more human traits is the message of Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar for young doctors entering the medical profession.

Union Minister of Human Resource Development, Shri Prakash Javadekar has exhorted upon young Doctors to go for ethical practice in their profession and perform that duty with passion. He said only passionate work can bring satisfaction in life. Shri Javadekar was addressing the 7th Convocation Day of Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital in New Delhi.

“You should go for ethical practices in your profession and perform the duty with passion. Like a teacher only that doctor is remembered and honoured who behaves humanly and who has more human traits. So he gets respect from everyone,” Javadekar said during the 7th Convocation Day of Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital here today.

“A doctor can earn quiet sufficiently in a practice being ethical as it will definitely return him with lot of satisfaction and good amount of living,” he added.

The HRD Minister also called upon the young doctors to come up for the service for the nation as a soldier keeping in mind even the smallest contribution made by a layman.

135 Students were conferred upon PG degrees in different disciplines.

During the ceremony, Shri Javadekar referred to the steps taken by Central Government in reducing the prices of stents used for curing heart blockages from Rs. Two Lakhs to 26000 and from Rs.70-80,000 to Rs.7500. He said similarly efforts are being made for generic medicines so that their extensive use could be done. We have also started Janaushadhi stores to provide generic medicines at cost effective and reasonable prices so that the poor could afford for medicines easily. Promotion of YOGA and observation of YOGA Day is meant for prevention of diseases and attainment of good health, Shri Javadekar added. Similarly are the drives for vaccination, immunisation, physical activities, barring of junk food, and sports, the Minister said.

    Abolish QUACKERY Automatically things WILL Fall into the Place. It\’s a failed system , in such wrong system , even the Right INDIVIDUALS are going to Fail . The Politicians should restrain from giving tape answers. If they courage should come open discussion , opinion polls and Referendum. Giving empty speechs may make the common man happy , or it could be a Fodder for some TV channels. ACTIONS SPEAKS Better Than the WORDS. Try to implement / impose rules , INSTEAD OF giving Empty speeches. There are Hundreds of Teachers to teach the Medical students about Ethics, MORALS , sympathy and Empathy. …………. Unless the person who preachs , does follow the principles of preaching . The students are unlikely to follow. Ours is unorganized HEALTH CARE system. Any Tom , Dick, Harry can treat any body and every body with out being a Qualified professional starting from Peon to the President . Unlike in the Developed countries. In India medicine is nothing but MOCKERY, the madness leading it\’s population to wards Sadness . This is the country with Highest number of Suicides in the world , to be precise one individual commits suicide in every 40 seconds. Unbelievable, Inhuman. That\’s why in Happiness INDEX we are at bottom of the ladder. Our Babus our lawmakers are quite RAW, our professional are with incomplete , improper, Inadequate knowledge that too with required skills to deal with the situation. Our is law less country the Air force offer is bitten blue and black in the bright sunlight in the middle of the Road. The security forces booted in Kashmir, the school children are allowed to shout anti National slogans , they pelt stones with out any fear, shame or Guilt. The Respective GOVERNMENTS , think that they doing a favour to the Nation by WASTING our Taxpayers money in Kashmir. Look at Chinese they way the tackle the Tibet issues. Even Dailai Lama dare not seek Independence from China . Where as Set of Antinational sitting in the National capital in bright daylight demand for Ajadhi / Freedom. Being out of power Faroq , S/O Shake , Father of Omer trys to dictates whom to talk , how to run ( run away to freek out with wine and women in Dubai, Lund , Bomb Bai,). The Government , to involve Antinationals, Militants etc. ( I think it is better gift it out Communist China to teach them a lesson ). Or through the age old stinking article 370 ? Or whatever ever. Being a citizen of your own country if you are re bitten / Bashed up by road side loafers , that too being a security forces , what kind of Freedom we can expect. It\’s nothing but a law less country with Full of Flaw\’s . It is time to ban empty speechs , and promote ACTIONS , Because ACTIONS Speaks BETTER than the words. Go for Nation wide Referendum , let the CITIZENS of the country decide to whether to remove or retain , the Age old , rotten Article 370???… The Governments will come and go ….but CITIZENS should decide the fate of the country, not just few elected members. This way we can solve long pending problem and Billions of dollars which we are WASTING in Kashmir ( CASH MORE …for Ab dulla\’s. , Mufat\’s sepha Rats, Stone pelters Etc).

  2. Why only asking doctors to do and be ,only ethical ? The society at large needs to be ethical for everything ,ethical in every sphere of life and the society too needs and this should include all those bigwigs who issue such advocates and sermons . Asking doctors to be ethical when surrounded by thieves all around them .
