A silent revolution
" A revolution (from the Latin revolutio) is a fundamental change in power or organizational structures that takes place in a relatively short period of time. "
That is how much time the doctors had to protest before the government finally agreed to listen to their demands.
The very people who had previously threatened them of severe consequences , threatened to kick them out of their profession and even called them butchers sat their , silent. Their heads turned down in shame and regret. The doctors had refused to bow down even against all odds. Even against the threat of force and torture. It was a great day , may I say even in the history of this nation.
Here were a bunch of no-bodies who had come together and in doing so had brought down the tall and mighty bureaucrats who thought nothing of them.
The secretaries and advisors who still continue to breathe vial into the ear of the rulers were put to shame by these no-bodies.
In doing so they have given a valuable lesson to this nation.
If the nation ( especially the youth) are willing to believe in something , believe enough that they are willing to stick together for it, stick together against all sorts of oppression and threats , then there is nothing that they cannot achieve.
But here is the sad thing : this revolution seems to have gone un-noticed . . .
