Shame Shame

I recently visited a hospital and I can see people spitting shamelessly – including paan ki peekhs. They just needed a spot where guards were not seeing them. Isn’t it a shame?! When will our people learn some decency? When will we understand that hospital is a place where there are patients and the environment for them should be as safe as possible? Nevertheless hygiene is important everywhere. Do these people think that staff will clean the floors in their next round so kee farq painda hai? Shame Shame to all who pass by without uttering a word and let this happen!

    And I recently saw a hospital that immensely impressed me. The hospital I am talking about is the Patel Hospital. Very nicely made, purpose-built hospital that could be compared to Aga Khan and may be even better in some respects. This hospital provides good quality treatment to everyone – if having the means, they pay for it; if not having the means, they are put on Zakat. Even accident victims and other people with legal problems are immediately provided treatment with the legal matters being taken care of by the in-house police team (something that even Aga Khan does not have).
    Best of all? this purpose-built hospital was made by a Pakistani philanthropist belonging to the Memon community. Great example of being successful in business and then helping the community around them. We should all learn from such people!

    Thanks for the comment but here I wanted to highlight the problems in citizens. Patel is no doubt a good hospital. I find AKU services and expertise unmatchable and they do give welfare to the needy, it is just many people don’t try or have validity.

    spitting shamelessly

    a very interesting post my friend….very interesting indeed.first of all I donot have to go to a clean hospital to witness this act..all I have to do is to look out of my window at the hygiene crazy neighbor’s drivers…they keep doing it all day long….and probably have special instruction from the sponsors or the jamshedtown police to do it whenever they see my face….sometimes they do it without even looking at my face…I never utter a word when this happens let alone saying shame shame….because…i try to ignore them and walk by as these poor creatures donot exists at all….if I utter something….I’d be communicating with a lessor human.There is no way I could change a habit or stop a duty….so why bother…? and waste your time….

    @swerveut…..few years back The daily dawn started a column about announcing the new born….in the sunday paper…..and most of them where born in Patel hospital…so I assumed that it was only a maternity (mother&child) hospital/nursing home but from your description it sound like a general hospital….am I correct…?

    I appreciate all the efforts made by memon community. They are peaceful citizens of karachi and the real fellows of karachi and Pakistan. They have done a lot for this city even so called political parties didn’t do it and they are doing it since the independent of Pakistan. (By the way i am not memon) :)

    Patel is definitely not just a maternity hospital. It has a full emergency ward, cardiac unit, radiology etc. I am not sure what is the full range of services they offer, however it is definitely a proper hospital.

    Pakistani philanthropist belonging to the Memon community

    @swerveut……your research on the indian architecture is indeed impressive….but as far as my kknowledge is concerned Patel’s are not Memons….and to confirm this I searched both on wiki.The Patel hospital’s web site is under construction
    http://www.patel-hospital.org.pk/

    which gives no information regarding the owner or the administration…so may I ask the source of this vital information.I’ll be much obliged if you help me on this….Thanks.
