Fr Patrick in his inaugural speech said that many people in the society have a mindset which makes them approach the doctor when the disease was quite progressed. “After the age of 40, we should make it a habit to visit the doctor once a year for routine checkups, even if we feel perfectly alright,” he said.

He said that if a person is sick then the person’s entire family suffers economically as well as mentally. Hence delay in treatment should not be an option. He observed that due to the workload and commitment to duty, most of the judicial staff do not have the time to discuss their health issues with anyone. There is a need for physical activities even in a busy schedule and seeing a doctor should be a part of our lifestyle. “A routine checkup is essential, it is not a luxury,” he added.

Principle District and Sessions Judge and Chairperson of DLSA, Uma M G in her Presidential address compared health with wealth and said, “Our health is the best gift we can give our family and children. We (Judges and Advocates) live a life of seclusion and we are usually not available to the public due to various legal reasons. This is why it is difficult for us to discuss our health issues with others, but we have opportunities to share them with our colleagues. There is a need for us to change our lifestyle and include many physical activities in it. A healthy judiciary will give better service to the public.”

After the inaugural function, doctors from various departments of FMMC held a medical checkup camp, much to the benefit of the court staff.
