The Lady With the Lamp

 During the second half of the 19th century,almost all the general hospitals had borne the painful sounds of people due to its mal- maintenance and unhealthy atmosphere. These hospitals were not equipped with the staff like nurses to take care of these weak people. During this time,a lady came like an angel! Do you know her name? Yes...she is Auguste Florence Nightingale,was an English social reformer, statistician and the founder of modern nursing. She was the daughter of a very rich man and determined to sacrifice her home , wealth and life for the improvement of these hospitals; much against her parents' will in getting her married to a wealthy groom for a happy and peaceful life. Florence's parents felt light at heart When they witnessed their daughter's determination to serve the suffering soldiers. Florence began her pioneer service along with 38 other nurses in 1854. It was in 1856 she returned to England and started a training School for nurses.Nightingale came to prominence while serving as a manager and trainer of nurses during the Crimean War, in which she organised care for wounded soldiers at Constantinople.She also made efforts for improving the health condition of all sections of British society, advocated for better hunger relief for India. so she should be there in our memories, so annual International Nurses Day is celebrated on her birthday. 

      The angels in our society,a powerful pillar in the area of health care, deserve a lot of respect from the side of our society. It is very notable that they always act as the one with the needy. Like Florence Nightingale who served for the soldiers , now many nightingales work hard in order to save the people from the distress during these Covid times all over the world. They know that they are risking their own life,but selflessly work for mankind. During these Covid days, the services of doctors and nurses are notable, because when the patient isolated themselves from the whole society,they played the role of god to give a new life…Nurses and doctors are the backbone of our healthcare system who have been risking their lives for months.It is not possible to wear PPE kit for more than seven hours. One cannot even use the toilet with this kit, but wearing it is a must for their safety. They are isolating themselves from their own family to fight against these threats. but the result was not that good from the society, because they questioned these people without knowing the truths like "Doctor accused of killing elderly patients to free up beds". When they put their 100 percent in their service, we are obliged to pay back as respect to these humble 'gods' on earth. They deserve much to wage the war of corona. They are Powerful Soldiers of our healthcare!
