A new life


As Tak finishes the round, it is 2.30 p.m. and he has to rush to the hospital's conference room where a postgraduate seminar is on. "I have to attend the seminar for at least 40 minutes everyday. It is a routine here as junior doctors are given lectures by seniors every day." On his return, he checks the availability of drugs at the NICU pharmacy.

At 6 p.m., Tak calls it a day. Before he leaves NICU, he checks the status of sick patients and hands over charge to another senior consultant for the night. "Though I leave the hospital in the evening, my heart remains here. I keep thinking about the condition of the babies and the procedures to be done the next day.''
