Hands that must hold the stethoscope and scalpel can help the alma mater in shifting of equipments too, as the students of Thrissur Medical College are demonstrating.  When the contractor demanded Rs.15 lakhs to shift equipments to the newly constructed hospital building at Mulankunnathukavu and the College authorities could ill afford the sum, the students came up with the offer to do the work gratis.

The teachers were at first reluctant to accept the offer, fearing accusation from parents that their wards had been converted into headload workers.  However, when the Alumni Association came forward to foot the vehicle charges of the operation, they agreed to accept the offer of the students.

The 200 students, including para medical students, were divided among 13 departments.  The students started packing the equipments in cartons purchased using Studentsí Union funds.  Some packed boxes were shifted to the new building using studentsí bikes and teachersí cars.  The students joined doctors in informing outpatients of the closure of the OP in the city.

They have chalked out a shifting programme extending upto the middle of December.  Although students are assured of attendance, their course is likely to lag by half a month due to the extra curricular effort.  However, they are ready to take it in their stride, as the effort is for the common man. 

Earlier, students had displayed their sense of compassion by instituting a scheme for free supply of medicine to the poor.
