The great doctor

Tara's son Girish was in great pain, but the Doctor was nowhere.Suddenly, the Doctor entered and she started,"Have you no sense of time? My son is dying of pain."Without responding, the Doctor went straight to the Operation Theater. He came out after one hour and said,"Operation is successful. The rest nurse will tell you". Tara grumbled,"An arrogant fellow!"  The nurse heard this and said,"Madam, Don't call him arrogant. He is coming direct from the burial ground.  His son died last night in an accident. He has rushed to complete the last rites! " Oh God!!

  11. Tragedy in the midst of happiness. How little we know of others' pain.

  13. What a poignant story, usha, The timeless oaths embody a lot of the rules of medical ethics, so physicians for centuries have looked upon these oaths to guide their daily practice of medicine. And we all know that it isn't an easy task...!!
