Abstract

This refers to a thought provoking article by Vijay Mahajan and a commentary by Arun Sheth.What both authors have stated is, unfortunately, true. Dr Sheth’s comments reflect the hopelessness of the situation, as he does not suggest any remedial steps except “time-tested, age-old golden practices in spirituality…” Dr Mahajan states that the list of things that doctors must do is long, and spells out a very long list of do’s and don’ts for doctors, authorities and the people. He concludes: “Corruption is spreading its tentacles far and wide in the medical system. To restore its noble and distinct status, all sections of society must work together to stamp out the biggest killer in the medical system – corruption.”
