Compassion is a sympathetic consciousness and concern for the suffering of other's distress together with a desire to alleviate it. Compassion is extolled as a cornerstone of quality healthcare by parents, families, clinicians, and policymakers. Compassion, empathy, and committed loving care constitute the tenets of healthcare delivery. World Compassion Day which is commemorated every year on 28th November is a day for global icons to share their ideologies, values, and principles of compassion relevant to our time. It is important to remember the pioneers who advocated the principles of compassion in dealing with people in daily life.
