In today's world, being a doctor entails unrelenting altruism. Doctors today are expected to risk their lives every day to save lives, and the Hippocratic oath has become a charter of destiny and a calling unlike any other. Today's health personnel are under tremendous pressure to lead the fight against an unseen foe. They've abandoned their families, personal life, and even their jobs.
National Doctor's Day was established to honor the great physician and former Chief Minister of Bengal, Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy, and to celebrate his contributions to the world of medicine. He played a pivotal role in the establishment of the Medical Council of India and the Indian Medical Association. He was awarded the Bharat Ratna, which is considered India’s highest civilian award.
During the Covid outbreak, doctors and nurses worked around the clock, putting their lives in danger to save civilization. Instead of thinking about themselves, they have chosen to save India by putting the country first.
This day is solely commemorated to honour doctors' contributions to the nation's progress. The fact that they remained to work in the midst of a crisis is a testament to their great spirit, dedication, and love.
On National Doctor's Day, we express our gratitude to our doctors, nurses, and other health care providers for all they do for us and our loved ones.
