About the Book :
The book is an attempt to understand the state of ethics and human values in the medical services with the perspective of Indian culture and traditions. The process of dehumanization of the old well established Indian society based on human culture must be prevented and we expect a good beginning will be made by the medical professionals of the country very soon through realization of the deep rooted harm caused by it to the nation. Efforts must be made for emergence of genuine commitment to the service to humanity. The moral foundation of any public service organization in a democracy requires that administrators and public officials to show a genuine care for their fellow citizens. The book is trying to underline ethical aspects of major religions of India, Gandhi’s ideas, social culture in ancient India, contribution of India towards development of medical science and technology to highlight the state of human culture in the medical sciences.
