Zalzala, Zalzala!

Kaneeze-Fatema Bukhari

Abstract


My first trip to Pakistan truly opened my eyes to the realities of healthcare concerns in a developing country in the wake of a natural disaster and armed me with the realization that my work did not, and could not, end with my short stay in Kashmir. My experience in this region of the world, as an Indian from the other side of the LoC (Line of Control) and as a female with the knowledge of medicine, strengthened my resolve to be a compassionate physician unrestrained by the boundaries of a class or of a nation.
