The electropathy scandal
Indians, especially those from the middle class, fondly hope to see their children trained as doctors. As a result there is a great demand for ‘medical courses’. Four systems of medicine — allopathy, ayurveda, unani and homeopathy — have been officially recognised. There is no restriction on the use and practice of any of these systems. That is why parents push their children into courses leading to MBBS (allopathy), BAMS (ayurvedic) or BHMS (homeopathy) degrees; and if none of these are available, they get their children to become registered medical practitioners (RMP). It is like fulfilling one’s desire by making do with substitutes.
There are currently no refbacks.
