Spirit of co-operation in hospital : Need-based or humanitarian?I was very busy throughout the day in a hospital. One of my relatives has been admitted in a precarious condition. Throughout the day I have observed that there is a real spirit of co-operation among the accompanying relatives of the patients. Some relatives give directions to others, some help in filling up of the form, some call the doctors and nurses for other patients in emergency. Even relatives of other patients look after a lonely patient and encourage him/her.
Generally under normal circumstances, in modern-day society we don't observe so much co-operation, especially in Delhi. Is this co-operation in hospital is entirely need-based with an expectation to the effect that if I help others, they will help me in need. Or is it totally on humanitarian ground as a duty and responsibility to other human beings?
