New Delhi, September 13
Away from the pressures of attending to the COVID-19 patients in hospitals and care centres, several medical professionals including support staff were treated in a rare manner – a musical tribute in their honour.
The New Delhi YMCA organised an online musical hour to honour the ‘corona warriors’ who have been in the forefront of the fight against the pandemic since early this year.
“It is our modest way of saying thank you to these front line Covid warriors,” Jovial Vaghela, president, New Delhi YMCA, said, adding this was the second in the series after a similar programme for Delhi Police personnel earlier.
Among those who savoured the musical presentation were Heads of Departments, eminent professors, Chief Medical Officer and Director of Lady Harding Medical College and Hospital. The artists in some among the medical fraternity too were inspired to sing for the assembly.
Well-known ENT specialist NN Mathur, Director, Lady Harding Medical College, thanked New Delhi YMCA for organising the unique event. He complimented YMCA for running ‘one of the best Covid centres’ with its 200-bed Tourist Hostel now taking care of the Covid patients.
A specially written group song against corona by doctors from Lady Harding Medical College and Kalavti Saran Hospital was a hit.
Rajinald Vijay Milton, Systems Officer, New Delhi YMCA, and his daughter Shanon also entertained the audience with their Hindi film numbers.
Chief Medical Officer of LNJP Hospital Ritu Saxena said the doctors, nurses, and other staff were working round the clock attending to COVID-19 patients and this was a much-needed break from routine.
Paediatric Department Head KC Tamaria of Safdarjung Hospital also expressed similar sentiments. He also inspired Safdarjung doctors to participate.
Head of Radiology at Safdarjung, Kapil Suri, rendered Kishore Kumar for the audience while his Microbiologist colleague Sumathi belted famous number ‘Yesterday Once More’.
Romeo Roberts, Radiographer from St Stephen’s Hospital and Neil Milton, HOD of Radiology, Holy Family Hospital also performed creditably.
Norris Pritam, vice president, New Delhi YMCA, and chairman of the Organising Committee said, “The third and final event in the series would be a musical evening for the media persons who are no less than corona warriors.”
