NATIONAL DOCTOR'S DAY 2020: THEME, SIGNIFICANCE, HISTORY OF CELEBRATION AND MORE
This year's DOCTOR'S DAY is special as what doctors are doing in India and around the world can't be expressed in just words and we can't be more thankful for them. It is even more difficult for the doctors who are working tirelessly to ensure that all those that are infected with COVID-19 are provided with proper medical facilities. Their contributions and hard work deserve our gratitude each and every day. These doctors have been putting their own lives at risk and sacrificing family and personal life to ensure safety for all of us. So on National Doctor’s Day, which is marked on July 1 in India, we remember these heroes who work to save our lives. Many doctors in India and around the world have lost their lives in saving people so on this day let's remember them and their families who lost their loved ones and pray for their well-being.
HISTORY OF DOCTOR'S DAY IN INDIA
National Doctors' Day is celebrated on July 1 in India to honour the legendary physician and the second Chief Minister of West Bengal, Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy. He was born on July 1, 1882 and died on the same date in 1962, aged 80 years. Dr Roy was honoured with the country's highest civilian award, Bharat Ratna on February 4, 1961. The celebration of the Doctors' Day is an attempt to emphasize and to spread awareness on the value of doctors in our lives and to offer them our respects by commemorating one of their greatest representatives. India has shown remarkable improvements in the medical field and July 1 pays a tribute to all the doctors who have made relentless efforts and hard work towards achieving this goal irrespective of the odds.
"Doctor’s Day is a reminder to all of us to take some time out to appreciate the doctors who put all their lives into offering services to others."
