Happy Doctor’s Day

The Desidieter team would like to take the opportunity to wish all the doctors a very “Happy Doctor’s Day”!
India celebrates National Doctor’s Day on the 1st of July every year to commemorate the birthday of the famous Indian physician, educationist and freedom fighter Dr BC Roy. Dr Roy worked for the upliftment of thousands of patients and was instrumental in starting various institutions and hospitals across India. Later he joined politics and became the Chief Minister of West Bengal. For his dedication and service to the Indian public he was even awarded the Bharat Ratna. Later in 1976, the B.C Roy National Award was instituted in his memory.
The Award is presented every year on the 1st Of July by the President of India in various categories like: Medical man-cum-Statesman, Statesmanship of the Highest Order in India, Eminent Medical Person, and Eminent person in Philosophy and Eminent person in Arts.
Though this has been around for so many years, it’s surprising to note that not many Indians are aware of this day. So, this Doctor’s day surprise your Doctor by wishing him/her and thank them for all that they have done for you and your family!
