Quotes by Abhijit Naskar from Time to Save Medicine

“Be not professional in what you do, rather be excellent. Excellence has life in it – it has colors in it – it has sweetness in it – whereas professionalism is a dead corpse exuding the disgusting smell of obedience. Excellence requires no obedience, yet in excellence you act your best, without all the life-sucking efforts.”

― Abhijit Naskar, Time to Save Medicine

“A doctor should be a clown at heart, a scientist at brain and a mother at conscience.”

― Abhijit Naskar, Time to Save Medicine

“If you want to bring change, then you must not believe, rather you must perceive – perceive what others can’t – imagine what others aren’t capable of – and act in a way others wouldn’t dare to.”

― Abhijit Naskar, Time to Save Medicine

“Words can strengthen the weak, words can rejuvenate the meek – words can breathe life into the dead, words can unite the divided – words can bring smile on the face of the unfortunate, words can encourage the hearts of the desperate – words can alleviate the anguish of humanity, words can sow the seeds of serenity.”

― Abhijit Naskar, Time to Save Medicine

“Sick are not those who possess a sickness, but those who are possessed by sickness.”

― Abhijit Naskar, Time to Save Medicine

“A doctor is still a human being and will always remain a human being and can make mistakes. Mistakes make a doctor human, but being a doctor means being able to treat the whole person.”

– Abhijit Naskar, Peer Med Podcast Episode 3

Medicine is about giving humans the power to cope with diseases, invoice diseases and to step beyond diseases.
