On July 1, India celebrates the National Doctors’ Day. It is celebrated in the memory of noted physician, Dr Bidhan Chandra Roy. Although it’s a fact that no single day is enough to thank doctors for their selfless service, this year’s Doctor’s day is even more special as doctors have been at the forefront, risking their own lives to treat the patients amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
To thank the medical staff for their valiant spirit, Indian cricketers paid tributes to the real warriors working day and night to ensure the safety of Indian citizens. Be it former or current, almost all the cricket superstars expressed their gratitude and hailed the remarkable work done by the doctors in these strenuous times.
Indian captain Virat Kohli saluted the spirit and dedication of doctors. He said people should celebrate the commitment of our doctors and health care workers every day.
Not just today but everyday we should celebrate the spirit of our doctors and health care workers. Thank you for your commitment towards helping so many people. I salute your spirit and dedication. #NationalDoctorsDay 🙏🏼
