There were times medical profession’s only purpose was to take care of the sick . Modern principle of living has contaminated every walk of life .Medical profession leads by example in this race .
How can one justify celebrating a disease in a grand manner in public domain in the name of increased awareness ?
I am shocked to find an ad in a recent The Hindu Ad (25-11-2011)
Some of the words used are terrible and highly objectionable . It amounts to an insult to all diabetic patients.
- Diabetes award !
- Diabetic Carnival !
- Join us in the fun of diabetes !
- Glitz and glamor of diabetes!
- Festival of diabetes !
How can a patient celebrate his illness ?
I think the news paper which publish such ads should also show some sensitivity .
I agree there are lakhs of diabetic patients who do require intensive treatment but the fair held in the air conditioned corridors of a trade center is never going to address this issue.
( Can I ask these organizers to help and serve the real diabetic burden in ill equipped public hospitals across our state ? )
It is simply a commercial extravaganza creating a fear complex among the healthy , rich men and women and make a living
out of human anxiety .
Who sponsors these medical award nights ?
For those who are unaware of the games doctors and pharma companies play, here is a shocker – large amounts of money is pumped into such public events.
This is part of a larger board room strategies ( Can it be a conspiracy !) to increase the per capital consumption of drugs of our population . And no doubt doctors are integral part of this scheme with or without intention .
While MCI can penalize a individual doctor even for accepting a pen as gift from pharma company ,
they can do nothing but simply watch as millions are exchanged in the name research , health education , and awareness .
The height of the irony is , these events are sponsored by WHO and the world forums as well !
Ironically the doctrine of modern medicine seems to suggest . . .“Ethics is primarily for individual physicians and do not apply for institution ” This is the single most dangerous concept that is playing havoc with human health”
It closely mimics the principle of war justice . An individual shooting another individual is a definite crime , while multiple individuals killing multiple individuals is not a crime , it is a war !
The author has no personal grudge against any hospital or organization instigation. It ‘s an expression against so many commercial activities that occur in the medical filed on day-to-day basis !
