Rahul Bose to pledge for organ donation after death

Published

New Delhi, Sep 20 : Actor-director and sportsperson Rahul Bose will soon be signing up for “deceased organ donation” and would be pledging “every square inch” of his body for donation after death.

Bose, in a conversation with IANS, made the announcement and said that he is happy to “pledge everything” from bone, tissue, cornea, and every single part human beings can benefit from.

“I’ll pledge every square inch of my body,” said the 52-year-old actor.

“The Japanese Wife” actor is a panelist at an upcoming discussion organised by CII’s Indian Women Network and Yi (Young Indians) Delhi Chapters on September 24 in New Delhi. According to Bose, he will be formally signing up for donation of his organs on the date.

He already supports the causes of equalizing development through children’s education and preventing child sexual abuse through his foundations.

“It’s very simple for me, I take any way by which I can help human beings lead a better life… I’ve dedicated the last 14 years of my life to these causes, and supporting many other causes in a smaller way. So, if I can help other human beings (by donating organs), why wouldn’t I?”

“If you’re going to die, (and post that) if your body can be used to benefit 8-9 other human beings in terms of organs, what would be greater good karma.”

The event, happening in partnership with MOHAN (Multi Organ Harvesting Aid Network) Foundation is backed by industry and commerce body CII, which gives the actor some hope about the mainstreaming of organ donation in India.

“It’s so unpopular right now… In India, there’s one organ donor per 1 million people, whereas in Spain, there are 49 per 10 lakh people.”

Does he encourage more and more people to donate their organs?

“I would encourage other people to find out more about it, allay their fears, superstitions and irrational beliefs. Only when you’re satisfied, they definitely should.”

Bose was recently in news for a Rs 442 bill he was given at a Chandigarh hotel for just two bananas.

Rani Mukerji

Actress Rani Mukerji, who is gearing up for the release of her upcoming film “Mardaani 2”, met the special night patrol police team who protects the city day in and day out. She salutes the entire police force of the country for giving protection to the citizens.

Rani, who met the special all-women night patrol team, said: “Strict vigilance can prevent a lot of crimes and I salute the entire police force of our country for protecting us day and night without blinking even for a single second. I can’t imagine a society without them. Their daily sacrifices and unwavering sense of duty help us live peacefully and I want to do my small bit to highlight the incredible work being done by our police force.”

The Night patrol force has challenging work hours as they pull off a 12-hour long shift every single day from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m.

“I met an extremely specialised police unit, the night patrol team to see their work to protect the citizens at night. I was amazed seeing them at work. The amount of work they do, so that our families sleep peacefully and make commuters at odd hours feel protected is incredible. It has been an eye-opening exercise for me and I thank the Maharashtra police wholeheartedly for educating me on this,” she added.

Kalpana Suravse of the night patrol team stressed that late night commuters need to keep in mind a few simple things that could be hugely beneficial in the time of need.

Survase said: “We should note down the number of the transport that we choose to take while commuting at all times. In case of suspicious activity, you have the details handy to give people and call the police. Also, it is important that if you have a cell phone with GPRS facility, please keep the map on so that you know where you are heading. Also, keep the location on which helps tracking. We are always there to act swiftly, but these small things can make a huge difference.”

In “Mardaani 2”, Rani has been pitted against a very young yet dangerous villain who can be called pure evil. Produced by Aditya Chopra, “Mardaani 2” is set to hit theatres on December 13.

Behra later handed over her complaint to the special cell for preliminary investigation.

Menon, whose arrest was recorded on Thursday night, was given bail on surety of two personal guarantors.

He later said that what he did with good intentions was interpreted wrongly.
