Focus on service, not money, Sudha Murty tells young doctors

May 15, 2022

93rd Graduation Day of Mysore Medical College and Research Institute held

Mysore/Mysuru: The 93rd Graduation Day of Mysore Medical College and Research Institute (MMC&RI) was held this morning after a gap of one year. MBBS degrees were conferred on 150 students belonging to the 2016 batch.

The event was held at the Convocation Hall of KSOU and former Infosys Foundation Chairperson and the current Chairperson of Murty Foundation Sudha Murty was the chief guest.

Adichunchanagiri University Vice-Chancellor M.A. Shekar, former Vice-Chancellor of Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences S. Chandrashekar Shetty, MMC&RI Principal Dr. K.R. Dakshayani participated. Dean and Director of MMC&RI Dr. H.N. Dinesh presided. 

In her Convocation address, Sudha Murty called upon young medicos to shun the attitude of making money and instead focus on poor and gullible patients. “With service, money will also flow. My father and sister were doctors. There is God in every patient and serving him/her is next to Godliness,” she said.

“It is possible to make lots of money but it is impossible to earn good health. We see a lot of rich and wealthy suffering from various ailments. A doctor’s role is critical here,” she added.

Exhorting the doctors to take up a professional way of career, Sudha Murty said that a series of successes would make one arrogant. “Keep updating your knowledge. The day you stop acquiring new knowledge, that is the end of it. If a doctor fails to update their ever-changing knowledge then the direct effect is on patients,” she said.

Calling upon MMC&RI to stand to uplift the healthcare of the region, she said that teachers must teach values to the future doctors so that they can serve the society.

    She should have given this pep talk to her daughter and son-in-law, who are mired in scandal in Britain-Her son-in-law id finance minister and her daughter has evaded the tax there, claiming non-domicile status, which has ensured the reputation of them dragged into the gutter. The accusation of bringing Indian corruption culture there is the verdict of the British electorate.
    Preaching is so easy for Indians, but practising it, well… Not for them!

    A bit rich as an advice coming from Sudha Murthy. Her husband ran IT sweatshop, employing IT techies as IT coolies and made money, using the USD-INR exchange rate differential where , he could employ 10 IT techies for the salary of 1 American IT techie. Big deal? Not , really., made money, without any innovation. ..Only in India.

    What has she achieved? Her husband, who destroyed Mysore ecology and initiated the destruction of Bangalore through massive expansion of the city bringing in IT cheap techies from all over India!

  8. Jalandhara says:

    Inappropriate person to address a bunch of graduating doctors.
    A top physician or surgeon from the AIIMS should have been invited, have him /her administer the Hippocratic oath , and give them the right kind of professional advice.

  9. Delphi says:

    @Jalandhara . Agree with your view
    In my opinion, Dr BM Hegde is the right person to have addressed the graduation day. There are many other eminent professionals from premier institutions of excellence like CSIR, NIV,CCMB

    Thank you ma’am for inspiring new generation of doctors with your views which are required for this generation of doctors.
