Something very similar to what I had concieved, thought & discussed earlier is ALREADY started being IMPLEMENTED.

Article in Mumbai Mirror - on 24/08/2008

Some excerpts....

A silent revolution is in the offing in the form of Pune's police commissioner Dr Satyapal Singh's ambitious project – Mission Mrutyunjay. He hopes to involve collegians in the fight against terrorism and build a generation of law-abiding youth. First implemented in Nagpur when Singh was commissioner there and launched in Pune on August 18, Mission Mrutyunjay may be implemented throughout the state.

Mission Mrutyunjay is an anti-terror organisation involving colleges and high schools. The motto is ‘remaining alert is our religion’ and making people aware about security is its philosophy.

If lakhs of students are made aware about the perils of terror acts, they will spread awareness among their friends, family and relatives. We can keep society safe this way.

The name indicates victory over death. If we are vigilant enough, we can win over unnatural and untimely death due to terror.

Every college will have Mrutyunjay clubs with 25 to 40 students as members. They will be given identity cards and principals will head these clubs; NCC and sports teachers will also be members.

The members will meet every month and chalk out activities. There could be training courses in bomb detection, lectures on safety tips, etc.

We are not asking them to go after people and collect intelligence. They are only expected to inform us about what they see.

Nagpur has 386 Mrutyunjay Clubs and around 11,000 student members.

Medical Insurance , Health & Investments

As the age old adage goes "Health is Wealth", I being a Doctor couldnt agree more, in many ways. True. Very true. Also a stitch in time saves nine.

i say " He who treats patients must be careful, lest he becomes a patient himself".

So Doctors have to be their OWN DOCTORS 1st. Here comes into play a few things:

1. Earnings, Savings & Investment:

The medical proffession, especially that of a doctor, is a slow pick up, in monetary terms. The long initial years of studying + the rising costs & expenses of education = a very frustrated, indebted & worried graduating doctor.
Therefore we Doctors must learn 1 formula:

Income - Savings = Expense. rather than what we all invariably do Income - Expense = Saving.

Systematic, conscious, fixed amout of savings per month, which should be invested wisely in various avenues available.

Mutual Funds, Equity, Fixed Deposits, Bonds are some of the best options. Each of them have their own UNIQUE Returns, Risk & Liquidity level. Choose wisely, Invest Timely.

2. Doctors too need Medical Insurance. With a boom of Insurance Companies in India & explosion in number of Hospitals & Health Hazards, one can never be certain when Calamity strikes. Every Doctor should atleats Insure himself & family for Rs. 5 lakhs minimum, because often that is the figure touched in a week's hospital saty even with some minor surgery.

Thus, a rupee saved is a rupee earned. & Gold is not a good investment these days, as the growth rate of Gold is Far below the inflation rate therefore it actually gives negative returns.

& dont be penny wise pound foolish.
Try to cut down your expenses & boost your income.
Differentiate between NEED & WANT.

All the Best! God bless us all! Be happy, be safe! ENJOY!

A Doctor I will be...

Ever since I was a child, quite young,

I was treated by a Doctor with sweet pills & an even sweeter tongue.

Fascinated, I was by the aura and personality of that Doctor, what a lovely man!

Except for my dear parents, He was the only one who said, “I will help you all I can.”

Since then I had decided,

A Doctor I will be...

School was fun and for Science I always had a keen interest,

Academics were my forte and I scored well in every test.

Said the Teacher to my mother, “your son has a future very bright...

Tedious higher education he shall grace, with the target he has in sight.”

To myself I smiled and said,

A Doctor I can be...

Crucial is the choice to be made for a career,

H.S.C., C.E.T., P.C.B. plenty are the barriers

Vast were the options, but my intentions were clear,

Life, mankind & humanity, to me, were very dear.

Once again I decided firmly,

A Doctor I want to be...

In a prestigious Medical College, I managed to secure admission,

From then on, like a soldier, started my tough rigorous mission.

Books heavier than small babies & more than the number of bones in the body,

Exams, Vivas, tests every month, gruelling work hours, with so much to memorize & study.

For the first time I felt,

A Doctor could I be?

Expenses were high, fees, books and everything costs a lot,

But just about my dream, my ambition I gave a thought.

Then about the taxing days and skipped meals I did not bother,

To put in my best and withstand the bloody mess, my courage and energy, somehow I did gather.

Said I to myself, reassuringly,

A Doctor I shall be

Kidney rackets, molestation, over charging, negligence and many such accusations flew,

The Noble profession was maligned and noble were left only a few.

A the peak of youth, my friends in other fields were earning in lakhs,

And I, a negative contributor to the family income, was burdened with a heavy heart and back.

Sadly, but surely, a doubt crept in my mind,

A Doctor should I be?

But then I think about a child’s sweet innocent smile & an old man’s satisfied face.

Ah! The sheer pleasure of treating a disease and the origin of a problem finally trace.

Defiant as a warrior you stand, with your arsenal equipped.

Cure for you is the only Victory, your intentions in purity should be dipped.

Being a Doctor is all about spiritual satisfaction, not materialistic gains.

Sure, it is a tough life, but who said there is success without pains.

Thus, I swore

A Doctor I will be...!!!
