“The Doctor who was in a Hurry”
Swami Avadhutananda

A doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being called in for an urgent surgery. He answered the call asap, changed his clothes and went directly to the surgery block. He found the boy’s mother going and coming in the hall waiting for the doctor. On seeing him, the mother yelled:

“Why did you take all this time to come? Don’t you know that my son’s life is in danger? Don’t you have the sense …of …responsibility?”
The doctor smiled and said: “I am sorry, I wasn’t in the hospital and I came the fastest I could after receiving the call…… And now, I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work.”
“Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down? If your own son dies now what will you do??” said the mother angrily.
The doctor smiled again and replied: “I will say what Job said in the Holy Bible ‘From dust we came and to dust we return, blessed be the name of God.’ Doctors cannot prolong lives. Go and intercede for your son, we will do our best by God’s grace.”
“Giving advice when we’re not concerned is so easy” Murmured the mother.
The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happy, “Thank goodness! your son is saved!” And without waiting for the mother’s reply he carried on his way running. “If you have any question, ask the nurse!!”
“Why is he so arrogant? He couldn’t wait some minutes so that I could ask about my son’s state”, commented the mother when seeing the nurse minutes after the doctor left.
The nurse answered, tears coming down her face: “His son died yesterday in a road accident, he was in the burial when we called him for your son’s surgery. And now that he saved your son’s life, he left running to finish his son’s burial.”
Moral: Never judge anyone because we never know how their life is, what their journey is all about and what they’re going through at the moment.
