World Organ Donation Day

World Organ Donation Day

An appeal to all my friends, relatives n acquaintances

Dear All,

They say that human soul doesn't ever die, even after the body it briefly chooses to wear disintegrates into ashes. The body which one so painstakingly adores as a narcissist all through its ageing eventually gets rendered a residual value for just the carbon dating purposes & that also when one chooses not to get ones remains offered to the Holy Ganges.

I am not sure about the soul theory but I do not have an iota of doubt in the modern science coming of age. It has ensured that one can exercise at least some control over his/her vital organs in a bid to make them 'immortals'. Not for nothing a Hollywood flick bearing its title with the same name finds an instant connection with audiences transcending geographical borders! Isn't it your wish too (even if a covert one) that you are able to embrace this form of immortality?

Then what is stopping you from making your own wish come true? Just liberate your mind from any corruption for next few moments & donate your organs. It's indeed an oxymoron given the context for you are not actually donating anything you consider so dearly your own in the true sense of words to (possibly) someone entirely unknown but as you long to serve your own after-life vested interests.

Tomorrow, 13th August 2015 is World Organ Donation Day. Not long ago you celebrated the friendship day. Now make good of this day & just let your vital organs befriend an alien body once your own one denounces them.

I have pledged all of my organs viz. heart, kidneys, liver, lungs, corneas & pancreas. Trust me, after doing it i am feeling quite light & would indulge in some mouth watering delicacies in the evening to gain some weight :-)

You could visit Organ Donation India There are few other NGO's as well. The Wikipedia page on "Organ Donation" also gives all the critical inputs as well as details of few programmes which the Southern states in particular have been successfully running.
