Doctor’s Day


July 01 in India is celebrated as the ‘Doctors Day’. This is different to US’ Doctor’s Day which is celebrated on March 30 every year. The official symbol for this day is a red carnation.

For all the doctors

For all the doctors

I would like to wish all the doctors who have treated me so far – Dr. Sunil (who gave me my first stitches and injections ouch!!!), Dr.Malhotra, Dr. Gupta, Dr. Mangla (she is my aunt also), Dr. Kashyap and above all my dear dad-in law. I talked to him first time ever in life on phone where he prescribed me medicine for my acute sinusitis pain. I was too scared of talking to him as back then I was only dating my hubby and we were not formally known to each other. I would like to thank my Mum-in law who keeps taking care of my mom and her regular medicines. I would like to thank and pass my regards to my brother-in law for sending me those really nice eye lubricants and giving vision to those who have lost hope and sight.

I would like to pass my regards to all my schoolmates who are doctors now – Shweta, Charu, Priyanka, Padma, Ravi and many others – I am proud of you.

I would like to send a big bear hug to my blog doc – Sakhi (Dr. Shah)

And and and before I sign off – its my dad in law’s birthday today – ‘Happy Birthday Papa’, we are missing you lots and wishing may all your dreams come true.

Do you have a story where a doctor has played a significant part in your life?
