Being a doctor is considered to one of the noblest professions and we always aim to keep up the spirit of humanity over every other emotion.
While any disease or clinical symptom or the incidence may vary from region of stay or age or food habits or may differ from male to female but never on the basis of religion. So we never have this option in our patient information forms to mention your caste or religion.
To tell you the truth I feel religion is not something related to how we pray, which God we pray and how we address Him, rather I believe that religion is what we practice ! Yes and may vary from person to person even in one family. Like military was my grandfathers religion for he was an army man, cleanliness is my mother’s religion, simplicity is my father’s religion, staying playful and constant demands are my children’s religion and doing justice to our jobs by giving the most ethical and very specialized treatment to everyone who seeks our help is our religion.
We should always celebrate diversity because personal and national progress depends in happiness, celebrations and integrity.
My every blog is inspired by some real incidence and this time since last nearly 25 days we have noticed that at our practice many people request for change of their dental appointments to either early mornings or late in evenings and due to no questions asked policy at Mint Leaf Dental we always oblige them but during our monthly survey when we examined the pattern it was mainly due to the ongoing holy month of Ramadan and those patients wanted an appointment so that it may not disturb their faith and very intense fasting routine. We very much respected that and after knowing the reason behind this rescheduling, our team of doctors and staff even worked beyond their daily hours of work. Helping other person keeping their faith and religion intact is in turn helping us practice our religion faithfully.
I have a team of doctors and staff from all region, religion and faiths. I cannot feel prouder when they all celebrated and wished EID MUBARAK to their colleague and after much googling, presented gifts to her.
Diwali , Eid, Christmas and Gurupurab are just different occasions to celebrate our happiness and togetherness by the people of a great country who still celebrate 15th August as one National festival.
When I tried to thank my team to keep up the spirit of their profession one witty fellow mentioned that, “Madam, each part of the mouth we treat has different religion, teeth bite, while tongue tastes all flavours, sometimes bitter as well, palate gives us an indication of hot and cold, while gums hold the teeth but the best part is they all are dependent on each other for their functions and if even one part is not taken care of well than whole mouth will stink!!!”
So, the message is very well taken and we should be thankful for all the diversity, we should celebrate the oneness and integrity and do not let any one get affected otherwise whole humanity will stink.
We are celebrating, at all our clinics in Delhi and Gurgaon. Are you?
