Instead of stethoscopes and X-ray reports in their hands, doctors danced to the tunes of peppy numbers at the PGi’s Bhargav auditorium. Rightfully deserved, the doctors got an opportunity to relax their over-stressed minds and bodies at the 6-day cultural fest — Zenith.
Declared open by the chief guest Indian wrestler Mrs Geeta Phogat, the annual cultural fest had an exciting start with lamp lighting by Prof Dr Vivek Lal, Director PGI.
Phogat shared her warm experience about doctors who supported her through her career and insisted the importance of compassionate words and empathy from a health care provider.
The resident doctors, students and the entire fraternity of PGI came together to enjoy every moment of the exciting performances everyday by well –known performers like Jassie Gill and Babbal Rai.
Dr Rahul, president of Association of Resident Doctors (ARD), expressed his gratitude towards the Director for his constant support and encouragement.
