What is the color of a doctor’s money? It can be anything but black! It is basically made of two layers of sodium chloride. The first layer was prepared by the sweat of the medical school. The second was formed slowly after obtaining the so called degree. The denomination of this money is determined by the degree one obtains, slogging it out in a rat race, sometimes also missing out on how their kids grow up. If you are on the surgical side, it has some blood red patches here and there. A physicians’ money may have grey (matter) color sprinkled about. A colleague working in anesthesiology, intervention cardiology or emegency medicine have it soaked in adrenaline. There might be a few dots of yellow on some money. Believe me, no pathologist spills the sample intentionally! Also don’t blame any body if E. Coli grows on some money. So, my friends, a doctor’s money can never be black. And the most amazing thing is that he can keep it minting till Alzeihmer’s or Parkinson’s!
The Indian Medical Association has weighed the demonetization high value notes and this is what they have to say:
The Allergists voted to scratch it, but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.
The Gastroenterology had a sort of a gut feeling about it, but the neurologists thought the Government had a lot of nerve.
The Obstetricians felt they were all labouring under a misconception.
Ophthalmologists considered the idea short-sighted.
Pathologists yelled, “Over my dead body!” while the Pediatricians said, “Oh, Grow up!”
The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the
Radiologists could see right through it.
The Surgeons were fed up with the cuts and decided to wash their hands of the whole thing.
The ENT specialists didn’t swallow it, and just wouldn’t hear of it.
The Pharmacologists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow, and the
Plastic Surgeons said, “This puts a whole new face on the matter….”
The Anaesthetists thought the whole idea was a gas, but the Cardiologists didn’t have the heart to say no.
The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea.
In the end, the Proctologists won, leaving the entire decision up to the as****es in Lok Sabha.
Best Moments In a Doctor’s Life.
1. The sound of restarting heartbeats when resuscitating a patient.
2. Closure after a difficult surgery where only the surgeon knows how he / she has saved a life.
3. Cry of a new born
4-Reversal of paralysis of pt
5-Waking up of a comatose patient.
6-The genuine “Thank You” of a patient relieved of pain / stress / illness.
7-When someone randomly recognizes you in public and thanks you in front of your kids / family.
7-When the poorest of the poor collect enough money and gift you sweets for treating them free.
8-When anyone at work says “Take some rest now.. You have been working too much”.
9-When traffic police “Let you go” for minor offences just because you are a doctor, especially on the way to an emergency.
10-When someone says “I want to become a Doctor like you”.
There are many more.
Every day is filled with both tears and smiles, and the doctor has to balance these by using his/her soul as the fulcrum.
At the end of the day, death humbles everyone, but it is the doctor who stands to defend everyone else’s life without thinking if they are good or bad, friend or enemy.
Who will believe that money, home, family, cars, looks, luxury, and even love, romance are secondary joys for most doctors, after they have attended all their patient’s issues?
This pride is precious. The suffering a choice. The rewards immaterial💝🙏💖
