A Teacher In Life.....A Teacher In Death

There was a complete chaos in the classroom. It was our second MBBS undergraduate lecture room. As we waited for the teacher to arrive and start the lecture expected disorder, fun, frolic, noise and mischief ruled. Absolutely neglecting the fact that there was a classroom adjoining ours, the entire class of more than hundred students was having a free for all. 

Suddenly all this turned into a hushed silence. Everything suddenly became orderly.

The anesthetists have been called” – it was a typical call from one of the junior doctor on duty from the labor room in the middle of the night. Such calls instantly awaken and put the consultant-on-duty in alert mode.  As I accelerated my car on the nearly deserted roads in the middle of the night, I did a mental rehearsal of what all complications and challenges I was likely to face and what all should be done. No wonder rupture uterus is called “electric emergency in obstetrics”. It is a potentially catastrophic event during childbirth by which the integrity of the uterus is breached. It is a life-threatening event for mother and baby. As I was racing up the stairs to the labor room operation theater, I passed a junior doctor. He was obviously breathless hurrying back from the blood-bank carrying two units of blood in his hands. It must be for that patient in shock. I asked him “Why did you go pers…
