THE DOCTOR AND HIS PATIENTS
A Doctor is needed in the village only as long as people become sick. The doctor will not be needed if people stop falling ill. The medical profession lives on an inner paradox, because a doctor’s livelihood depends on people catching diseases. A doctor treats patients outwardly, but inwardly he hopes they get sick. And when there is an epidemic, he thanks God for the business.
The more people fall ill, the more money he makes. Inwardly he hopes, his patients doesn’t recover quickly. And so it takes time for patients to be cured, especially rich ones. Poor patients get well faster because doctor does not make much if poor remain ill for a long time. The profit is from rich customers, so he goes slowly when curing the rich. Anyways the rich are are always unwell, they are the answer to doctor’s prayers. His inner desire influences his approach lest the rich patient gets cured too soon.
