Our lives mainly revolve around two things – Either 'Yes' or 'No'. The choices we make, or the path we choose for our self is determined by where we choose 'The Yes' or 'The No'. Sounds pretty simple, but these two words are the most challenging and complex to choose from and at the same time, the most critical.
Our Ethics come in the focus here. The choice of Yes and No is determined by our Ethics. What is right and what is wrong? What is fair and what is unjust? This cannot always be judged by written rules and regulations. There is a world outside the bondage of rules and regulations. A world where the decision of right and wrong lies in every individual's hand, separately and independently. Here the task is to choose the path which is right for oneself, but not at the expense of others.
The core role of a Pharmacist in the society is to make/provide the best for human health. At the same time, due to the changing times, success and personal gains are also very important. As Future Pharmacists, while we aim to bring about new evolutions and revolutions in this field, it is our responsibility to not forget our core role. To cheat our consumers would be to risk their lives. Maybe the short term personal gains seem a rosy picture, but when looked upon with a broader perspective, not only the consumers are cheated but we would be cheating ourselves too by not fulfilling our duties as healthcare professionals.
It is therefore rightly said, that rightfully earned is only what is rightfully ours.
