Delhi Metro for better transportation and comfortable journey, modern flyovers, greenery and other developmental works are not enough. The city government will only be satisfied when it sees smiling faces of all the citizens of the national Capital, Chief Minister Ms Sheila Dikshit proclaimed today.
Speaking at the ‘community thanksgiving ceremony’ to Sir Ganga Ram Hospital and launch of initiative to build ‘attitude of gratitude’ in civil society, the Chief Minister lauded the role of the hospital which had attained international fame because of its dedication to the medical profession.
Ms Dikshit said that as far as gratitude was concerned, a smile was enough because there was nothing better than a smile to indicate thanks and gratitude.
The ceremony was jointly organised by Assocham, Vaish Associate Public Welfare Trust, Rotary International and Centre for Civil Society. Ms Dikshit and Uttranchal Governor, Mr Sudarshan Agarwal were the guests of honour at the function.
Thanking the hospital for its services to society for the last more than 50 years, Mr H. K Dua, Editor-in-Chief of ‘The Tribune’, said that the people should be grateful to the physicians who spent hours together in looking after the patients.
He said that people should express their gratitude to those who sacrifice their comforts for others. People should not forget the sacrifice of freedom fighters who gave everything — their families, their comfort — for the sake of the nation.
Later, a thanksgiving plaque was awarded by Ms Sheila Dikshit to Dr Bharat Ram and Dr. K. B. Rao, Chairman of Sir Ganga Ram Trust Society and Chairman of Board of Management of the Hospital respectively.
