#WorldOrganDonationDay Blog Carnival

That the body of a human being itself is borne out of Annam, it gets revealed that gifting one’s body itself could be greater than gifting food. ANNAM CHA PRANAHA. says vakyam.
    Thanks a lot for the information. Can we just register ourselves online? I am informed that such registering offices are only at Ananthapur outside Tamil Nadu.
