Manipur education minister Dr Thokchom Radheshyam on Tuesday interacted with cancer patients at Regional Cancer Centre, Regional Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS), Imphal on the occasion of World Rose Day 2020 at an event organised by the radiation oncology department of the institute.

World Rose Day is observed on 22nd September in memory of 12-year-old Melinda Rose from Canada who was diagnosed with Askin’s Tumour, a rare form of blood cancer and her efforts to bring cheer and hope into the lives of other patients, even while suffering from the disease.

Speaking at the function, Radheshyam said doctors are like demigods as they have a few great qualities different from others. 

“Doctors did see, listen and feel what others didn’t and give their best effort to take care of their patients during treatment,” he added.

Quoting the line, “love can open all the gates”, he said ill people should be given utmost care and love by all to imbibe strength, bring cheer and hope into their lives. 

Stating that doctors devoted most part of their life rendering service in treatment of their patients, he appealed to the public not to blame the doctors in case of occurrence of any untoward incidents, despite sincere efforts and attempts on their part.

The minister also presented roses and gifts to cancer patients and wished them good health. 

A short interaction between the minister and the post graduate students of the radiation oncology department followed the function, whereby the minister motivated the students and wished them a bright future. 

RIMS director professor A Santa Singh, medical superintendent prof Ch Arun Kumar Singh, professors of the department, post graduate students and other staff of the department attended the function.
