It's extremely hard being a doctor but..
Not long ago, I happened to attend a small get together of my MBBS batchmates. With soft music playing in the background and dim lights, the topic of discussion soon shifted from frivolous things to the more pertinent question which, I feel, every professional must have dealt with multiple times in his/her lifetime. If the decision to become a doctor was right or wrong? I was taken aback by the responses. Majority did not know the answer and acknowledged that. But, the more surprising part was that seven out of 10 felt that they do not want their kids to choose this profession. This left me pondering over a bigger question. What has changed in the recent times that the so called earlier sought after “medical profession” seems to have lost its charm. Is it the availability of alternative and more rewarding alternate careers or the changing attitude of society at large?

So what's the hardest part? Firstly, it is a hard, ardous and long journey. Unless the desire to excel is strong, it is really tough to go through the ordeal of never-ending studies, tutorials and further studies. Secondly, the prolonged incubation period between entry into MBBS to becoming a full-fledged specialized doctor drains many. While your batch mates in other fields are planning retirement, a doctor after completing his studies and super specialization has just started making a name for himself/herself in the field.

The profession is not a bed of roses, but a path of nails. It does not let you sleep in peace. Your hair turns prematurely grey and your average life span does diminish. On the contrary a person of an identical intelligence gets much more comfort at lesser endeavour and sincerity. Still then being myself a doctor of average reputation I wanted my children to become more renowned doctors. Not only that, they could understand all the complicated systems of their body well, they could protect themselves and their near and dear ones from many diseases and most importantly there is least chance of treating their elders in inhuman way - this being my firm feelings....
