“Many doctors (from junior interns to senior consultants) in the cities, working in the corporate hospitals (like Apollo), are under intense pressure to actively abet unethical (corrupt exploitative) & unscientific practices.
Are Christian doctors equipped to discern & resist such forces??”

I must overcome this deficiency in my selfhood.
Oh to be precious and unproductive…!
