Abstract: None

Partial Text: We would like to congratulate Kenneth R. Fernández Taylor for bringing up such an important but avoided issue in developing countries like Pakistan [1]. The growing debate regarding long working hours of postgraduate trainees has been receiving considerable attention recently [2]. This greater workload contributes to increasing stress and decreases the overall performance and the quality of life of the affected individuals [3,4].
