Medicine at a crossroad...
As the tides turn from considering doctors as Gods to treating them as villains, this article beautifully represents how times have changed for doctors in India, through the eyes of a doctor.
"I often went with my investment-banker friend to see his clients in India and abroad. He carried a laptop and entertained his clients with expensive drinks and cigars while advising them on how they should invest their money. Sitting quiet one evening while sipping brandy, I reflected how people pay bankers the top dollar for managing their wealth, but pay much less to doctors who manage their health. There is hardly a chance of full retirement for a physician. Many of us still put in the hours after years of practice. Most physicians die with their boots on."
