World Rose Day is observed on 22nd September in the memory of 12-year-old Melinda Rose from Canada who was diagnosed with Askin's Tumour, a rare form of blood cancer and her efforts to bring cheer and hope into the lives of other patients, even in the face of her own disease.

During the observance function, Shri Thokchom Radheshyam said that Doctors are like demigod as they have a few great qualities different from others. Doctors did see, listen and feel what others didn’t and give their best effort to take care of their patients during treatment, he added.

Quoting the sentence “love can open all the gates”, the Minister further stated that ill people should be given utmost care and love by all to imbibe strength, bring cheer and hope into their lives. It is the Doctors who devote most part of their life rendering service in treatment of their patients. He also appealed the public not to blame the doctors, in case of occurrence of any untoward incidents, despite sincere efforts and attempts on their part.

The Minister also presented roses and gifts to the cancer patient wishing for their good health. A short interaction between the Minister and the Post Graduate students of the Radiation Oncology Department followed the observance function, whereby the Minister gave certain motivating words to the students and wished for their bright future.
