A village doctor is an important person in the village. He is a private practitioner (অনুশীলনকারী) for the helpless villagers. In a word, he is a useful and influential person in the village.
A town has many qualified doctors. Some of them are even specialists, but it is a matter of regret that there is no qualified doctor in a village. A village doctor works for a long period as a compounder or as a salesman in a pharmacy or under a qualified and experienced doctor. He is known as a quack (হাতুড়ে ডাক্তার). Afterward, he comes to the village and begins to serve the sick villagers.
A village doctor has a dispensary either at his home or at the marketplace. It is furnished with some chairs, a table and an almirah. His dispensary is simple. His stock of medicine is poor and consists of a few common and cheap varieties.
He possesses (অধিকারী) a remarkable position in the village. He is the trusted friend of the villagers.
A village doctor is a very active man. He rises early in the morning and takes his simple breakfast. Then he goes to his dispensary and examines the patients. When he goes outside to visit a serious patient, he carries a bag full of medicines. A stethoscope (হৃদস্পন্দন পরীক্ষার যন্ত্র) is hung from his neck like a necklace. He goes from place to place on his bicycle or on foot. He is so sympathetic that even at dead of night, he is available for consultation. He is kind to his poor patients. He does not demand any large fee. Consequently, the poor villagers are highly benefited by a village doctor.
The problems of a village doctor know no bounds. His knowledge is limited. Sometimes he prescribes wrongly and the patients die. He cannot buy all the medical instruments and medicines because of his financial constraint.
A village doctor is kind-hearted and is a friend to the villagers. He is, so to speak, a pillar of the village. Though he is not rich, he is loved and respected by all. So, the authority and the public should try to improve the working condition of the village doctors.
