What is the actual meaning and intent of the word ‘Nursing’? This question was asked to hundreds of medical and para-medical students and in hospitals and nursing homes. No one could answer properly.

After the delivery of the baby, it is the duty of the nurse to foster it, nourish it, grow it.

Tail piece: In Charles Dickens ‘Oliver Twist’, the doctor addresses the nurse, ‘…Miss Thimkumee…’ It was actually Thankamma, a Malayali Nurse. You know the knack of the British to distort any Indian name……Namasthe!
