“The art of medicine consists of amusing the patient while nature cures the disease.” — Voltaire
National Doctor’s Day is celebrated in India to honour legendary physician and the second Chief Minister of West Bengal, Dr Bidhan Chandra Roy. He was born on July 1, 1882, and died on the same date in 1962, aged 80 years. The Government of India honoured Dr Roy with the country’s highest civilian award, Bharat Ratna on February 4, 1961.
In a profession where knowledge, skill, power and heart come together, a doctor is born.
Today, July 1, 2021, we celebrate all doctors the world over, and in our country.
We thank you. We honour you.
Through the ages and especially after the world got hit with the Covid-19 virus, doctors have been through the wringer. Only they know the sacrifice, hard work and effort they have put into each day. To save even one life.
We thank you for your selflessness.
For the countless doctors that we have lost due to the virus, you have all left an irreplaceable dent in the world and you will always be remembered for your pledge to your duty above all else.
May your souls be at peace and thank you.
Not everyone gets a chance to thank their doctors. This day, we offer a prayer in gratitude, for bringing great doctors into our lives and world.
You are literally the heartbeat of our world.
Thanks a lot for everything that you have done and continue to do to restore the health each person and the well-being of our planet at large.
We could go on and on, but we know your time is precious and you have lives to heal….
God bless you all!
