IT is ap­palling that proeuthana­sia groups use a time­honoured phrase, “dy­ing with dig­nity’’ as their own slo­gan.

In 48 years work­ing with dy­ing fel­low hu­mans, to im­part ded­i­cated palliative and al­lied care along with car­ing fam­ily be­comes a joy­ful cel­e­bra­tion of life. Then “dy­ing with dig­nity’’ through gen­uine ef­forts of palliative med­i­cal, nurs­ing and fam­ily care un­til their last breath be­comes a liv­ing in­spi­ra­tion for all con­cerned fac­ing our own daily life/death chal­lenges.
