My friend Dr Ashwinbhai Naik  asked me to share my views on the topic 'jealousy' and that created this viewpoint article.

Jealousy is an emotion inherited by all of us. It has nothing to do with age, sex, intellectual level or financial status. This emotion is a negative one expressed according to the intensity of the feeling, and that is why some people can hide it even though they have it in the back of their minds.

Personality Development

Before I give details of the subject, I would love to define it. “Person” means a human individual being physically present. So “Personality” means the characteristics, qualities and nature of an individual person seen as a whole when we meet for the first time. This wholeness of character and nature as seen in an individual creates an aura - a mixture of external appearance, mannerisms and speech.

Now, there are two aspects of individual presentation creating a personality - external look and aura -the facial expression that comes from within.

Even though we are not talking of cosmetics and beauty parlour make-up, staying well dressed and pleasantly presentable is a must. This includes proper hair grooming, good oral hygiene, shaving the beard, dressing appropriately (dressing of proper fitting, maybe simple but washed and ironed) and last but not the least, the polished shining shoes. Now you are presentable, but the personality impressions are creations of the mental outlook.

This mental image creation demands great work-up. Your look will present your level of intelligence - confidence and nature. For this, you will need to have a particular mental attitude of a great person. Let me give some pointers:

First is, BE FREE. Spit out all your past actions, good or bad and never think of them again, because what is done is done. You cannot undo it. Don’t repeat, whatever effect - result follows face. But be careful not to repeat the same mistake. Give up the burden of all deeds - be free and attain freedom, liberation.

Once you are free and get the state of freedom, BE CONFIDENT. Weakness is death. Be brave. Have faith in oneself. Those, who are born with confidence consciously of greatness, became great. Whatever you think, you become. Learn to avoid imitation. One must struggle to be individual - thinking their own thought and realising their own self.

BE FOCUSED and have concentration. Focus on the aim and do not get distracted.

When this is achieved, your education, intelligence and ideal human nature will shine out. Now nobody can ignore your presence, because of the developed personality. And again, you are what your personality is!

Complications - When Doctor Commits Mistakes

When a new doctor is learning for the first time or when a senior doctor is learning or not learning a new technique, who suffers? Naturally, a patient. When we visit a doctor with a physical problem as a patient, we expect perfection. But it is not easy to get. So, we have to understand how the doctors may make mistakes.

We look for medicine to be an orderly field of knowledge and procedure. But it is not. It is an imperfect science, all enterprise of constantly changing knowledge, uncertain information and fallible individuals. It is not only science but also habit, intuition and plain guessing. This article is about dealing with mistakes made by doctors and their remedy.
