Dr. Sundeep Mishra talks about ‘A Clockwork Orange’, a movie in which a criminal
becomes more receptive to the violence in the society and transforms as a result of
watching grotesque images and graphics.
“Similar movies must be shown to medical students to sensitize them. The more they
understand the pain and suffering of a patient, the better care they can provide.”
