I think doctors are the only professionals who are forced to work even on holidays. People feel doctors don't need to be with their family on these days. I've been working extra time yesterday and today on the days of onam holidays. That too in two different places. It feels great to eat onam feast late in noon i.e at 2pm :).
May be doctors are not allowed to have holidays. I should have considered this while taking up this job. I'm okay with it though.
