First and the only priority: Patients
Dr. Vijay Bothra was a different person. He
follow other persons of our times. He never charged from his patients, even if patients asked him to visit their homes during odd hours. He would leave all urgent work when it was the matter of a patient and it may be any patient. He would not leave his office till all the patients are taken care of. He would forgo his breakfast, lunch, dinner, and all essential activities, when it was the matter of taking care of patients.
Dr. Bothra's Three As: Available, Accessible, Approachable to everyone
It is now almost a year since Dr. Vijay Bothra left us. He has created a vacuum, which will always remain un-fulfilled. Mere remembrance of Dr. Bothra fills you with amazing memories of an ever charming, ever motivating and always a B+ positive person. He was truly a person with rare contagious and infectious smile. Bikaner, with a population of 5 lakh had one messiah (God), and this person was always accessible, available and approachable to every one without any discrimination of caste or otherwise. A shabby pauper would dare not enter a private hospital and would be thrown out of Government Hospital, but even he would proudly enter the drawing room of Dr. Vijay Bothra with remarks "Doctor Bothra is my own doctor and he will cure me". Dr. Vijay Bothra had some rare qualities as a good human being. He understood psychology and thinking of every person. He would speak in such a tone and such a mesmerizing voice, that due to his care and compassion any wound would get cured. I had seen that many patients would get satisfaction only after talking to Dr. Bothra. Bikaner (located in Rajasthan in India) has a large population which has migrated out of Rajasthan. Whenever these persons would get any medical problem, they would telephonically consult Dr. Vijay Bothra and would get immense satisfaction when Dr. Bothra would tell them "You will recover soon". Bikaner, the heart of the Thar Desert offers extremes of weather conditions coupled with scarcities. Both summer and winter are extreme, and it makes life difficult. The villages are located at distances and it is difficult to move between them due to lack of infrastructure and transportation facilities. All these villages had only one hope - Dr. Vijay Bothra. Whenever the people in these villages would plan to organise a medical camp, they would request Dr. Bothra to come and organise a medical camp. Thus for the people of the entire Bikaner region, the only hope was Dr. Vijay Bothra (surprisingly in this material world, Dr. Bothra would always be available to offer his free services to any person who would approach).
Dr. Bothra: A great Team Builder for the cause of Medical Care
Dr. Vijay Bothra was a great team builder also. He was able to create a very powerful team of philanthropists, doctors, nurses, support staff, thus it was like a fun for him to organise grand medical camps with highest level of care and compassion. Probably due to Dr. Bothra's compassionate care and concerns, all his team members exhibited the rare compassion and care, which would help the patients to recover fast. At the call of Dr. Vijay Bothra any person would be willing to do anything, just because over a period of time, Dr. Bothra had practised the humane values of care, compassion, and concern. I had a personal experience which I would like to share (it is just an example and many people
