07 Aug 2009Residents must have their rights.The authorities,anywhere are not paying any extra attention to the demands of the medical personnel,only depriving them of their rights on the ground that they are emergency staff and their strike will cause public inconvenience.Let the authorities learn that the problems faced by emergency staff need to be addressed on emergency basis,so that there will be no need for going on strike.Till that day comes,the Resident doctors have their right to go on strike.

07 Aug 2009it`s high time doctors in our country atleast demand a respectable pay and more humane working hrs, esp when people all over the world are restricting themselves to 40 to 48hrs per week schedules, and the fact that studies have already proven that attention and acuity is best sustained for a period upto 12 hrs

05 Aug 2009Why do people forget even doctors are human beings, we go in to the profession to do good and no harm, but who will feed us and our families, if the pay is so abysmal!! You have to fight for what you rightfully deserve, if you are not given.

04 Aug 2009Our system works only with compulsion, hence strikes become necessary. The resident doctors however were responsible and continued their work outside the hospital, which is appreciable.
