and there are exactly 183 more days to go in 2012,
making midnight tonight the half-way point of this year.
National Doctor's Day
celebrated every year on July 1
to honour the memory of legendary physician and
West Bengal's second chief minister (1948-1962)
Bharat Ratna 1961
Dr Bidhan Chandra Roy
whose birth and death anniversary is today.
God and the Doctor we alike adore
But only when in danger, not before;
The danger o'er, both are alike requited,
God is forgotten, and the Doctor slighted.
