Yes, doctors do have virtues that go beyond the dexterous use of scalpel. When it comes to merriment, they can let their hair down and with finesse

A peek into a banquet, after a two-day conference organised by Vidarbha Ophthalmic Society at a city hotel, said it all. The evening got a traditional touch as few youngsters kick-started the evening by rendering Ganesh Stuti.

There was not just an element of tradition but a surge of spirituality too when President of the Society Dr Dhananjay Modak rendered the popular bhajan Teri hai zameen and the audience sang in chorus."This is my favourite number. And I feel it's always good to remember the Almighty in good times too. It really helps," he said. Soon spirituality gave way to more popular numbers.

It seemed like an R D Burman night as doctors sang all Panchamda songs. Dr Ajay Sood pepped up the mood of the evening as he crooned Bachna Ae Haseeno. We caught up with him and he said, "This peppy song gives you an adrenaline rush and can make a dull environment lively." Dr Sudipto Pakrasi drew lot of attention as he discussed his association with celebrities like Kapil Dev and Rajesh Khanna. He said with a smile, “During my college days, I have done modelling too.”
