Dr Lutfur Rahman - An Inspiration

The other day during lunch ma was telling me about this doctor whom she saw on TV the day before. She really liked the doctor. She told me he seemed sincere, honest and kindly. She however, didn’t say such nice things about a certain lady (not the hostess) present on the show. “She couldn’t keep her mouth shut! She went on and on when nobody could care less about what she had to say.” She also told me to look up the Star Weekend Magazine which did a story on him a coupla weeks back.

It is obvious that the man is a genius. He is much more. He is what all doctors should be like around here. He sees his patients for free (He draws a monthly salary where he works). He takes money for the operations but even then he is extremely considerate towards the poor. In fact he openly offered his help to anyone who may need it. He makes it a point to treat his patients right. This is far from the common practice in this country.

We only think, talk and write about things that are going wrong in this country. Here is something going right! Dr. Rahman set an example that I’m sure many others will follow. There is hope yet. Eh? :D

This was a nice article. Thanks for the link. It was more insightful since the "innovative" procedures mentioned are EXPECTED procedures here. They automatically go for the LIMA (as opposed to the leg veins) and the off-beat heart pumps. At least that's what they do in academic institutions. Just realized how lucky I am to be studying here where all the modern practices are at my fingertips.

Kudos to Dr. Rahman for taking the bull by the horns and introducing these concepts into the country.
