In a series of reports showcasing instances of victimization and racism against Indian doctors in the United Kingdom, organizations representing them have urged Indian government to take up the issue earnestly.
“There’s a stark contrast in the way Indian and white doctors are treated for the same offence. There is a club culture among white managers and doctors. As an organization, we are working for equal treatment.”, said Ramesh Mehta, President of BAPIO (British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin), to a national daily.
Discrimination begins in medical schools, and affects the person’s whole career. Harassment and bullying from both, colleagues and patients are daily facts of life for Indian doctors.
A petition that says that “current NHS investigation and disciplinary procedures were heavily biased’ against Indians, has been signed by a group of eminent Indian doctors in the UK.
Reportedly, the condition has reached to an extent, where there has been at least one incident of an Indian doctor trying to commit suicide due to alleged victimization.
Even in cases of promotions, awards and other benefits, Indians aren’t given even a slight preference, it has been reported.

  • Let it be understood. An Indian child being admitted to a “Good School” in India means, the child is being delinked from its native land and schooled to be a reliable poodle, likely to benefit many in the Anglophonic world but none in the native land. To the cultured individual or community, products of such “good schools” are an object of pity not of respect. The news item- “Victimization of Indian Doctors in UK” is a product of just that.

    Pride and prestige of a nation and its members largely, if not solely, depends on how indigenous education of that nation conditions its human resource and teaches them how to use its own culture, heritage, language, history, tradition, literature etc. as a solid base and build upon that base its knowledge of the outer world and its influence on self.

    Instead- a nation that capitalizes on imitation, its education means shameless, contemptible copying of others and contempt for anything indigenous has completely lost all sense of self respect and dignity. They can’t expect or do not deserve respect from others. “Victimization of Indian Doctors in UK” has its root not in Government’s intervention but in the system of education.

Kothavalasa, of Dumbriguda Mandal, Vishakhapatnam District happened to be their first integrated Tribal Development Project. The Special Representative for North America, the team that is actively involved in this mission, after pondering upon various ways to impact the lives of the rural public came up with an offbeat approach.

According to the team, for any community to move forward, they need to stay united and what better than sports can teach people to stay united. Creating a sports facility is not an easy task, and it needs a lot of resources, especially money.

campaign and has collected a sum of almost 1,30,000 rupees in just five days. It should be noted that the whole fundraising was carried on the official website of AP Janmabhoomi, where 51 NRIs from various parts of the globe have participated. During the team’s physical inspection to the site, they’ve partnered with ThinkPeace, an NGO which has already been impacting the people living there for more than 5 years till now. As part of their integrated Tribal Development Project, AP Janmabhoomi also donated an amount of Rs. 3,00,000 for the construction of an Anganwadi school.
