The staff is very cooperative and very helpful. And of course, it has been kept clean. And we have had a experience. So we'll have it every year based on our experience." Senior TMH Pediatric Ocnologist added.

'No one thinks about the person who is treating cancer patients': Nitin Save

Nitin Save, co-founder of Dupita Foundation, spoke about the reason behind organizing the turf cricket event. He stated that doctors are always in stress as they take care of cancer patients everyday and the turf cricket event was the best way for them to bust their stress.

"No one thinks about the person (doctor) who is treating them (cancer patients) and who is handling so many patients at a time and they are always in a stress. We thought there should be stress buster for such people who are a backbone of treaung the cancer patients." Save said.

"We are organizing some even for such all doctors and nurses and all other people and they are working day and night in a hospital.

So this is the lighter movement for them and they can at least for few hours they will forget everything and they will reduce their stress." he added.
