New Delhi: In unexpected developments after PM Modi’s ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ recently, the Delhi chapter of the Indian Medicos Association (IMA) expressed their dissent in retaliation to PM’s omission of the medical fraternity, which only gives ‘Pariksha’ for most part of their lives.
Doctors, who consider themselves veterans of ‘Pariksha’ givers, were visibly upset that they were not chosen by Modiji, to ask Modiji, the pre recorded questions chosen by Modiji, to be answered by Modiji, and only school students appearing for board exams were selected for the task. A press release by the association drew attention to the comparison between a child in 1st standard of school and a medical student in 1st year of MBBS – when the child grows up to give his medical entrance exam, the medical student is still giving his PG passing ‘Pariksha’ (food for thought).
In an exclusive interview with the Quackdoses, IMA President Dr. Deepak Kumar (name changed) said, “Medical education has become like Mumbai Metro project, doesn’t seem to come to an end even after years of hard work and regular exams. Because of these continuous ‘Parikshas’, there is hardly any time to even meet my girlfriend. And Modiji lectures to cut down the time spent on phone by 10% to spend time with family. I fail to understand why he separately conducts ‘Chai pe Charcha’ and ‘Pariksha pe Charcha’. Like we doctors, he can easily do ‘Chai pe Pariksha ki Charcha’ and save crores of innocent tax payer’s hard earned money spent on these marketing gimmicks.”
IMA Doctors did however reiterate Modiji’s thoughts to medical students that they must not think that appearing for exams are the end of the world, as there are better things waiting for them in life – like scoring the passing 35 % in the ‘Pariksha’.
