Family Vs Service

A doc was once threatened by few anti-social rogues to not treat a man who was the only eye-witness of a high profile murder mystery.And for the doc it was a gruesome dilemma to choose either the family or his humanity.

Find out what the doctor does.....
It goes like his.....

There was always a genuine reason
and that's why I committed the sin.
People thought me to be a dare-devil
but this was only to provide my family a square-meal.

I'm a person appointed to kill
mind you not to kill.
But just for few hours I turned myself from
selfless to selfish human-being.
I gave a damn to everything.

It was then when my family's security
overpowered my responsibilities.
My personal life overtook my professional life.

After all I'm just a common man
and hence I had to commit this negligence.

Today, the world has tagged me
as a killer, not a doctor.

But I still don't repent for anything
because I did something for my family.....

    I am astonished, at this age how could you visualise the thoughts of a doctor!
    You thoughts appear to be quite matured.

    there is this thought in hindi which says, there can't be any revolution with empty stomach...upto a large extent all humanity is bound to follow this simple law of nature...

    u have tried fairly to weave the doctor's dillema, including the realisation of his unintended sin.

    its teary however

    Well! those who transcend into greatness become immortals
    and for the rest of us, we are just ordinary.
    Anyway, its a good write.

    this is a very strong write..
    thoughts are expressions of strong feelings
    between love of family and love of service
