All over the world the doctors are recognised as saviours of the ailing humanity while the professors and lecturers are acknowledged as the builders of the young generations. Both these segments of the society are the most respected persons everywhere. But what kind of treatment the saviours of humanity and the builders of the new generations are getting in Sindh, it can be imagined well from the experiences of the senior and fresh doctors, professors, lecturers and teachers. Some senior representatives of professors, lecturers and doctors shared their sordid experience with The Nation. How the senior teachers have suffered financially and mentally by joining the education professional many years ago can be imagined from the case of Prof Muzaffar Rizvi. About 28 years ago Prof. Rizvi proudly opted for the education profession. He was given Grade-17 at the beginning. Believe it that in his 28 years career he had been given just one move-over and now he had been serving the KU in grade-18. For nine consecutive years from the beginning of his career he was given the ad-hoc arrangement, a damned job contract that was never counted in his professional career for move-over. Prof Rizvi is not alone, who has suffered a lot because of the mismanagement, negligence and non-challant attitude of the policy-makers and the rulers. There are so many Rizvis who have wasted their many years in this profession without getting any incentive and desired move-over from their departments. Even they don't get respect, which they expect from the policy-makers and the rulers. Another shocking aspect is that the young masters degree holders, who are engaged as Cooperative Teachers in Universities and Colleges, are paid only Rs 4000/- month salary _ Rs 2,000 less than the minimum wages the government had fixed for the labourers. This meagre amount of Rs 4,000/- would hardly be enough to meet the travelling expenses of a Cooperative Teacher in a month. How the CTs would be maintaining their lifestyle and fulfilling their social/family obligations with this 'salary', it can be felt only by the people who are going through this insulting job arrangement after getting Masters Degree with distinction. Same is the fate of the young doctors, who, after completing House Job, are getting a paltry amount of Rs 5,000 to Rs 6,000/- as monthly salary from the private clinics and the private hospitals. The representatives of Pakistan Medical Association in Karachi pointed out that hundreds of vacancies of doctors are lying vacant in the hospital and health units throughout the province. But the government and the authorities concerned are least interested in hiring the saviours of humanity, thus making hollow and tall claims of extending better health facilities to the people, including their voters. How can a doctor afford to maintain his/her family with 12,000 to 18,000 rupees monthly salary when he/she is posted in remote/rural areas? This argument was raised by a senior doctor should suggested that the government should provide accommodation, security and other benefits to doctors to such an extent that the doctors themselves run for posting in remote/rural areas. To sum up, what I have felt from the conversation, appearance of the three representatives of professors/lecturers, is that these people are being treated as third rate citizens and almost discarded elements in the society. There is no career, no future, no compensation and no incentives for the people who are busy in generating doctors, engineers, scientists, educationists, analysts, economists, journalists, bankers, businessmen, etc. The pathetic job arrangement of doctors, teachers and hundreds of vacant posts, appear a major challenge for the multinational donors who provide tens of millions of dollars loans to the government in the name of reforms. It is also a big challenge for the rulers who get votes in the name of providing basic amenities to the people, but forget their basic obligation after coming into power.
