Jaipur : The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly changed the dynamics of the entire world. While on the one hand, people are largely confined to their homes with businesses and educational institutions remaining closed, on the other hand, healthcare workers and hospital staff have been fighting COVID-19 from the front. They put their own lives at risk with selfless determination for saving the lives of the people. The least we as a society can do is appreciate and respect their efforts.

In this context, Aakash Educational Services Limited (AESL), the national leader in test preparation services, has honoured Five of its alumni Dr Arjit, Dr Kinshuk, Dr Naveen, Dr Shivani and Dr Arjun Aggarwal from Jaipur, for their COVID-19 work as frontline warriors, fresh out of college, having completed their MBBS degree in 2020. Kinshuk had secured AIR 608, Arjit AIR 383 and Shivani AIR 385 in NEET 2015 while Naveen secured AIR 1084 in NEET 2016.

Arjit, Kinshuk, Shivani and Naveen were students of SMS Medical College in Jaipur. The alumni of Aakash Institute from Jaipur, when they graduated from the medical college, COVID-19 was already wreaking havoc in the lives of people across the country. The students saw death from close quarters. COVID-19 had claimed the lives of some of their own professors and seniors who were in the line of duty.

Talking about their COVID-19 work, Dr Arjit and Dr Kinshuk said, “Our professors at college taught us that being a doctor is selfless profession, you need to think about others, about their safety and wellbeing. And at Aakash Institute, we were trained not only for test preparation but also for facing the challenges of the profession. We were fortunate to be with inspiring people right from the start.

Dr Shivani and Dr Naveen added “Covid came all of a sudden, people were not prepared, people were helpless. The situation was dire. We could never have thought sitting idle at home while the people suffer. Being a doctor has its own onus and responsibility, we need to serve, we need to save lives.

Their message to the medical aspirants: “It’s time to take the charge. No amount of preparation will ever be enough. The more you study, the more chances you have of securing a good rank, getting into a good college, becoming a good doctor. Consistency is the key.”

In his comments, Mr Aakash Chaudhry, Managing Director, Aakash Educational Services Ltd, said, “Our students DrArjit, DrKinshuk, Dr Naveen and DrShivani inspire us to double down on our efforts to create many more medical aspirants realise their dreams and become valuable members of the medical fraternity and the society. Our unwavering focus to enhance the effectiveness of our training has made us the leader in test preparation. But it is the emphasis of our training on the values required for a noble profession like medicine that help us gain the respect of our alumni, their parents, and the society.

All the four doctors, however, advise the people not to let their guard down as the threat of Covid-19 has not diminished as yet. With talks of a third wave looming large, getting vaccinated, adhering to safety guidelines and social distancing and keeping your own self protected from the virus are the key to remain safe and Covid free.
