Dear Editor,There are numerous lush green beautiful Parks in and around the SKIMS,Soura Srinagar, but I fail to understand what purpose these Parks are serving when not even a single attendant is allowed to sit under the shade of Cedrus deodara and Chinar trees on green carpet of Congress grass which in Botanical language called Cynodon dactylon on scorching heat of sun.I saw when the attendants are pushed out of the wards in the name of Doctor’s round they sits on footpath of the Hospital. I am here in SKIMS Hospital. I came from Doda District a couple of days before .I received motherly treatment both from Doctor’s and common people which means that the people of Kashmir are peace loving,cooperative and have humanism .During the early hours of the day when the Doctor’s come for the daily rounds I went outside for the convenience of the doctor’s and to avoid rush.I was stressed and thought of sitting in the Park for some time but the Security guards stopped me and said you can’t sit in the Park.I saw there are near about 7-12 big and small beautifully maintained Parks in the Shar-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences premises but the are kept out of bounds of patients and attendants consulting the Hospital doctor’s. I sit on the road footpath from morning to afternoon while waiting for the Doctor’s round to end.Several other patients and attendants were in the same situation. It is comes into my notice that the order to restrict people entry into the Parks was issued in 2016 the Director Health Service Kashmir due to littering by the attendants and of people from outside who used to loiter in the Parks.The Parks are basically maintained to keep a cool and hygienic Environment in the Hospital for the benefit of the patients and attendants who use to sit there.I requested people that we should not throw garbage and not to damage even a single branch of the trees.We should throw refuse of eat able things into dustbins.We people should show civic sense. People should think that if the Hospital authority shifts their focus to the cleaning of the Parks which created a lot of problems like security issues, nuisance and smooth functioning of the institute. The Parks are the people who come come to the Hospital for treatment and for their attendants. What is the fun of Swachch Bharat Mission if we people not even keep our Hospital’s Environment and Parks neat and clean.Last but not least it is the duty of our people also not to allow outsider to sit unnecessarily and assure that they would not trespass and that only patients and the attendants use the Parks and outsider movement should be stopped not only by Hospital security official but also by patients and their attendants.
