On this day doctor's celebrate for the irreplaceable roles that they play in our lives. From dentists to neurosurgeons, homeopaths to heart specialists, physicians to pediatricians, Doctor's Day is the time to pay tribute to the entire medical profession. There may be several reasons that can be attributed to the significance of a Doctor's Day being celebrated in India. The Doctor's Day is celebrated on July 1 all across India to honour the legendary physician & the second Chief Minister of West Bengal, Dr Bidhan Chandra Roy. He was born on July 1, 1882 & 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 large population of India depends on the efficiency and responsibility of doctors to a large extent at all times. Doctor's in India over the years have shown remarkable improvements & made definite progress in medical treatments that need to be acknowledged, it may also be seen as an encouragement & an eye opener to all such doctors who have been struck by a flailing career owing to a lack of commitment. There have been instances of public violence and protests against doctors when they have failed to perform. Doctor's Day could be seen as an approach by the same people as a mark of respect for all those doctors who have relentlessly made efforts to sustain the life of their patients against all odds.
