Happy Doctors Day, the Indian way!

Today is 9 November 2015, Dhantrayodashi, the day of the incarnation of Lord Dhanvantari, the Hindu god of health and medicine. He is regarded as the bringer of Amrut, the nectar of immortality; and the physician to the gods. In India, he is worshipped widely as the blessing deity by all medical professionals, traditional and modern; and his anniversary is celebrated as an informal Doctors’ Day in the country.
