    Realy very sad.Sucide is not the option in any circumstances.Fight it out.Om Shanti

  2. It is v.sad
    V.sad to see a Dr. Losing his life
    Vvv sad to see , a Dr. Who cannot even write properly spelled English word , criticising fellow Dr.
    It is true , present system , is allowing underqualified to dawn white apron
    Moreover , reservation , actually , eroding every chance to have quality professional in medicine
    If , you think , virat , will play for India, at paltry amount , or , IIT/JIM guys will do job at peanuts , you are horribly wrong
    India , where uber/ola drivers are earning 25-40k per month , swiggy delivery boys ,20K & You pay DR. 60K , it\’s horrible injustice
    Life of a DR. is no less valuable , than that of farmer or soldiers to society
    High time society should accept it , Quality professionals needs quality salary
    Or soon exodus will become epidemic after internship
    And in gov jobs /pg exam , scrape the reservation / pay respectable salary to toughest professionals
    In 21st century , with 4G mobile , stop uttering populist message , no political party will give you any position of importance for being a doctor
    Yes , health care is costly , but , the professionals turned in to popper , relatives , friends , society merely laughing seeing paltry earning
    High time , Dr. Should unite for respectable pay & abolish reservation in PG Seats
    Wish the soul of the Dr. Rest in peace , hope, the death will make society aware of dangerous plot that actually wasting life of most brilliant professionals

    PSYCHIATRY. OR PISSCATREE ? . IT IS REALLY RARE TO FIND AN TRUELY KNOWLEDGEABLE, SENSIBLE AND RELAYABLE PSYCHATRISTS IN INDIA. FOR THAT MATTER IN ANY OTHER SPECIALITY . ACCORDING TO ME INDIAN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM AND MEDICAL EDUCATION IS NO WAY COMPARABLE TO WESTERN STANDARDS,. IT LOOKS VERY PRIMITIVE FUNNY AND IRRADIATIONAL ANY BODY CAN CALL HIMSELF/ HERSELF DOCTOR AND PRATICE / MEDICINES LIKE PEPPERMENTS, SUCH THINGS CAN HAPPEN IN THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES ONLY , UNDOUBTEDLY INDIA IS THE WORLD\’S BIGGEST THIRD WORLD COUNTRY. I AM MAJORITY OF THE FACULTY DON\’T UNDERSTAND / AGREE WITH ME, INFACT EVEN FEEL I AM ARROGANT AND HIGHHEADED. BEING WITH THE BAD , EVEN THE WOSRE THINGS MAY LOOK GOOD. WE HAVE BEEN TRAINED TO BE MECHANICAL AND MUST TO FOLLOW THE WRONG THINGS ,WE ARE ( 10 TO 20% ) OVER KNOWLEDGED , UNDER SKILLED , 50 TO 60 % UNDER KNOWLEDGED & UNDER SKILLED, AND ABOUT 10 TO 20 % ARE REALLY BALANCED ( THE LUCKY ONE\’S). – INVARIABLY NOT USEFUL TO THE MOST DESERVING / NEEDED UNDERPRIVILEGED PATIENTS. SUCH DOCTORS FIND THEIR OWN WAY TO FIND BETTER OPERTUNITIES FOR THEMSELVES , BEING WITH THE BAD SYSTEM THEY CAN\’T HANDLE AND MOST LIKELY TO END UP BAD HABBITS – GAMBLING, ALCOHOLIC, WOMENISING etc. I THINK AS LONG AS THE MEDICAL EDUCATION AND HEALTH CARE SYSTEM TOTALLY MANANGED BY THE QUALIFIED KNOWLEDGEABLE SENSIBLE SKILFUL PATRIOTIC MEDICAL DOCTORS WITH DEGREE/S MODREN MEDICINE ( NOT LIKE OUR HEALTH UNIVERSITIES TO ALL KINDS SPECIMENS OCCUPYING ADMISTRATIVE POSTS) AND IN THE GOVERNMENT THE B A PASSED OUT BABUS THE BUEROCRATES DICTATING TERMS WITH OUT KNOWING ABCD OF MEDICINE, I SICK AND TIRED OF SEEING SUCH GOINGS IN THE GOVERNMENT , I THINK BIGGEST ENEMIES OF THE HEALTH CARE SYSTEM AND MEDICAL EDUCATION DUE TO THEM THE ENTIRE POPULATION SUFFERS.
