I truly believe in this dialogue…

At present, Raees is on a roll, because of Shahrukh (obviously) , his acting, his robinhood role, and most importantly his stylish daring dialogues.

Every social media is full of his photos with witty dialogues, and few days back I was going through one article, when the above picture come in front of me, and suddenly so many “dhanda” or jobs come into my mind, which we consider so small and insignificant, that we even consider them inferior and also the people doing those jobs. 

But we do not realize that how important they are for us and for our community, that if they would not have been there, then there would be a big chaos, and I will give you examples of that.

Few jobs with which I do come regularly in contact and I consider them important, they are :

1) Nursing Sister/Brother :
One of the most unthankful job, I have ever seen in my medical career till now is this. They (sisters and also brothers) are always a sandwich between the Doctor’s and patient or patient’s relatives bad behavior. I have even written about them before also, because I always feel bad when my seniors and I must admit that sometimes myself also become angry on them without any reason, but still they take it all without saying anything. And you know, why they are important, because they take care of patient in every possible way, they feed them, clean them, giving them drugs regularly, and sometimes they have to clean their vomit and even have to assist in their defecation and urination, and still they smile and do this gracious job with all their heart. A BIG THANK YOU to all them. Grateful.

    2) Housekeeping Staff : 

    In Indian Society, this is one of the job, which is always considered inferior and also the people attached to them are considered as lower caste, but after working in a corporate hospital, I realised their true importance, how their work even affects the outcome of a patient in view of spreading of infection. Just compare yourself to work in a clean surroundings versus in a unhygienic surroundings, it will definitely affect our productivity also.

    Kolkata Traffic Police : A very hectic job..

    3) Traffic Police :

    I honestly admit that being from the tier-2 city of India, we never see the traffic police as important as state police, but when I came to Kolkata (metro city in India) I realized the power and importance of traffic police. How they are responsible for smooth run of vehicles. If we think on a broader perspective, they are not only responsible for maintaining traffic and prevent congestion, but they are also responsible for saving the life of a traumatized patient because they reach a hospital on time, they are responsible for our timely arrival on airports and railway stations and also save us from our girlfriend’s taunts because we manage to reach on time for our romantic date. Few weeks back, after looking at the efficiency of maintaining traffic in Kolkata’s streets, I said “Thank You” to one of the traffic police officer, who was supervising tarffic at Victoria Memorial.

    4) Customer Care executives :
    Just tell me how would you feel if there is someone in the outer world who is always ready to help you 24 x 7 x 365, that too with a smile. Yes, they are customer care executives, who always help us when we approach them with our problems. So I request you, next time when you are requested to wait for some time, then please don’t show your anger on executives, because they are there to help you, not for venting out your anger.

          Here are some of the jobs which I like, and always ready to say Thanks to the persons, who are doing them.

          So don’t judge the person by their job, instead judge the person by the value they are giving to the society…

          Have you also experianced the same feeling to perticular jobs in your surroundings, if yes then please share with me.

          The Neglected Ones..

          Have you ever appreciated when you enter into the clean theatre..

          Have you ever appreciated when you enter into the clean Mall, with clean surroundings and everything seems so polished..

          Have you appreciated any Corporate Hospitals like Apollo, Medanta, Hinduja for their cleanliness, and everything there seems so up to date and seems to be at their place where they are supposed to be as compare to government hospitals..

          Have you ever appreciated the clean roads and surroundings in your residential campus, or the local supermarket guy for guiding you to your desired item or the customer care operator for your phone or broadband service..

          May be you appreciated, may be not, I am not sure…

          But about TWO THINGS I am sure (about the majority of people)..

          1. They may not appreciated the good things but they definitely  cursed the negative things like dirty roads, improper surroundings, dirty chairs of multiplex, rude behaviour of customer care operator, as everyone has developed the ability to identify ‘bad over good’..
          2. (For this I am almost 100% sure) they haven’t appreciated the person behind the good work because they are the ones who are the most neglected in our society, like the sweepers, cleaners, peons, call centre boy, helpers in supermarkets, nurses, housekeeping staff and so on (list is too long).

          Now the question is why  like this happens in our culture that we always praise the ‘bigger jobs’ (as we think so) and neglect these type of jobs ?

          From my experience working in a hospital, these so called non-important jobs people are  the pillars of any institution, acting as the lubricant of a machinary, because even if a single cotton piece at the time of need not available to us than we as a doctor become helpless (trust me).

          Remember the strike by sweepers in Delhi, last May 2015, everywhere garbage and litters could be seen, even in post South Delhi. This is the example of our over dependance on them.

          So just want to convey you all that EVERY PROFESSION, every people in that profession is IMPORTANT. 

          We have to respect them, just admired their work, give them a smile, this means a lot for them and they will repay you 10 times for you smile.

          Not everything can be judged by money, somethings should be feel by its VALUE.
