Hyderabad, April 17 : The former Judge of Supreme Court, Mr S S Mohammed Khadar, today observed that the medical profession has become more competitive and less friendly towards the poor.
Mr Khadar gave away the 11th annual awards of the Justice P C Reddy Trust at a function in Ravindra Bharathi here to the select meritorious girl students in law, medicine, engineering, sports and arts.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr Mohammed Khadar said that now-a-days, the medical profession has become more competitive and less sensitive towards responsibility on health care of the poor. Though the Right to Education Act was passed by Parliament, steps to provide required facilities at the educational institutions were not initiated so far. He exhorted the awardees to do justice to their social responsibilities after reaching higher levels in their professions.
The Founder-Trustee, Mr Justice P C Reddy, said that they were extending the awards to meritorious poor girl students in order to encourage them in education and arts. The women education leads to education of entire family that automatically leads to educated society. Education should inculcate morality which was scanty in the present generation. Every one should strive to impart moral and healthy education to the people to change the society.
The awardees in medicine stream were: Ms Geetanjali, Ms N Kiranmayee, Ms N Srilashya, Ms A Jaya, Ms Geetha Rani in law, Ms C D Padmaja, Ms B Padmajalatha, Ms S Ruksana Begum, Ms P S Bhavana, Ms G Jyothi in engineering, Ms P Kalyani in arts (dance) and Ms N Aruna in sports. (NSS)
