In India, every year, many people lose their lives because of organ failure. However, organ transplantation is a hope for such patients but there are many constraints like the cost of the transplantation, donor availability and awareness about the process.

There are two options for getting an organ transplantation done – One when your first relative like wife, kids, mother, father donates their organ or a part of it (in cases of the liver) and second is when you get a cadaver donor, which means people who are clinically brain dead donate their organ.

In India, there are many patients waiting for the donors to save their lives but unfortunately, the donor-patient ratio is quite low. I don’t want to get into the stats but to give you a broader picture, there is always waiting of a few years to get a cadaver donor and many people lose their loved ones due to this shortage. Many people fear and don’t wish to risk their family member’s life. They don’t want to save themselves keeping other’s life at stake. Hence rule out the option of living donors.

I very strongly feel every one of us should come forward and join this noble cause, register their organs for donation after their death as this will save many lives. Many people wish to donate but due to lack of information, they could not. So, I am sharing the details about the transplants and the registration process. If I will be able to inspire even a single person to donate their organs after they leave this world and save even a single life, I will get a satisfaction in my heart.


Please note, this is only a broader picture of Organ Donation I have shared. You will get the complete details once you register yourself on the below mentioned sites.


As mentioned above, there can be two types of donors –  one of your immediate family members, your blood relatives (wife, children, mother, father, sibling). They need a permission from the doctor-in-charge of the transplant center to donate their organ. Other relatives and friends can also donate but that requires a lot of paperwork. Consent letters are signed, police verification is done and some more documentation is done before processing.  But, most importantly, to finalize the living donor, a person who is willing to donate should qualify all the medical tests and various other parameters like:

Age: Between 18 to 55 or maximum 60 years donors are preferred.

Health: Donor should be healthy and active.

Pregnancy: Donor should not be pregnant.

Willingness: Donor must be willing to donate voluntarily without any pressure and well informed about the risks involved and procedure.

Disease: Donor should not have any serious illnesses. No fatty liver, no jaundice, no other liver/kidney/ heart disease, diabetes or cancer, High or Low BP that is difficult to control. Should be free of certain viruses such as hepatitis C or HIV. Should not be an alcoholic or have any other drug-related issues. Should have a controlled weight and proper BMI.


Different organs, such as heart, liver, kidneys, and tissues, such as corneas and bone marrow, tendons, can now be successfully transplanted into patients, who can expect to survive for years or even decades. The different organs that can be transplanted depend on the type of organ transplant i.e. whether the donor is alive or deceased.

Where, on one hand, living donors can donate only a limited number of organs and tissues, like one kidney (because one kidney is capable of performing bodily functions), a part of pancreas (because half of the pancreas is enough to perform the pancreatic functions) and a part of liver (because it is the only body organ that regenerates over a period of time), on the other hand, cadaver donors can donate their heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, pancreas, tissues like cornea and bone marrow.



Can you imagine the pain of a person who knows he/she is dying because one of his / her body parts has stopped supporting? They wait for a miracle call that says “We have got a matching donor for you”. Their family just pray and pray and wish the situation gets reversed. The feeling of losing their loved ones is odious.



  1. It is very important to inform your family and friends about this decision so that they remember and act accordingly when required.
  2. Without your family’s consent, organs cant be donated.
  3. Always carry your donor card with you.

I don’t want to sound great and mighty by writing this post. The sole purpose is to motivate and encourage more and more people to register themselves and help others.



There are many organizations where you can register yourself as a donor and a donor card will be issued to you. Here is a list of a few such Organizations:


Here, I end my article with a few lines:

I wish to give my sight to the person who has never witnessed the beauty of sunrise and sunsets. I wish to give my eyes to someone who has never seen his/her kid’s giggling, growing and beaming face. I wish to give my eyes to someone who lives by the beach but feels it only through the waves’ touch.

I wish to give my heart to someone who has suffered endless days of pain lying in ICU with fluctuated lines on the monitor screen.

I wish to give my kidneys to someone who has been dependent on dialysis for his/her day to day survival.

I wish to see the world through someone else’s eyes even after I die.

I wish to beat in someone else’s body when the rhythm of my heart stops.

I wish to give my tresses to make wigs for the brave hearts who lost their hair to cancer.

I wish to give my blood to the little fighters to beat leukemia. I wish to give every single drop of my red fluid to the youngster who met with an accident and parents praying outside the ICU for his/her breathe.

I wish to give all the 4 parts of my liver to a father fighting cirrhosis so that no other daughter wails in the memory of her dad.

I wish to give every bones, fibre, muscle, nerve, cell to make someone’s life brighter.

I wish to go from this world leaving behind my goodness and bury my faults in the grave,

I wish to live forever in the eyes and hearts of people by a few lives I can save.

So, friends, please please come forward, be a braveheart and register yourself as a donor.

This was a heartfelt post. I have witnessed my mother in law die of multiple organ failure. N I feel ashamed that I haven’t yet registered myself as donor. This is an eye opener Vartika!!

September 8, 2018 3:11 pm

Vartika thanks for this blog. Organ donation is perhaps the best thing that we can do.

This is such a heartfelt post. “We have got a matching donor for you”. These words can change the life story for the recipient’s family. My parents have filed the organ donation form and when they informed me about it I felt so proud of them. I had the same feeling what you expressed in the poem. Actually made me nostalgic.

You have done a great noble job by donating your organs. It is not easy to take that decision. You rightly mentioned organs cannot be donated without family’s concern. Thank you sharing the websites so that it become easier for the people who are really interested in this. Great initiative. Hopefully more and more people would donate their organs after reading this.

This is such an important thing in our life and donating organs literally means we are giving life to others. Can there be a better way to give back to our society than in extending the life of people by such noble act of donation. You have done a good research in capturing all the needed information and this comprehensive checklist is for everyone of us…a ready reckoner.

So sorry to hear about it Vartika. Appreciate all your efforts and contribute to the good of the society by spreading a noble message and helping the needy. We all can do our bit and we have a better society for our future generation.

September 10, 2018 9:48 am

This is such an thought provoking post Vartika. Kudos for attempting it. I am sure many are inspired to live after life.

September 10, 2018 12:20 pm

I have pledge to donate my eyes a decade ago. Organ donation is something I would be interested in doing, but haven’t found the courage to do yet. I’m waiting and internally debating. Let’s see, maybe by the time I turn 40 I’ll have a better perspective and understanding of where I stand. This is a very important message you’ve brought out, Vartika. Kudos to you.

Donate an organ and live even after you die. Such a noble cause. You are indeed a gem Vartika. Thanks for sharing details and links I was in need of them for a while. Post acted as a reminder too.

September 10, 2018 2:35 pm

Organ donation is a noble thing to do. Someone benefits from us and blesses us for it long after we’re gone. Every healthy person must opt for it. This information is crucial. Thanks for sharing.

After watching Breathe series on Amazon prime it strongly touched my heart and mind about donation. Indeed a great post!

September 10, 2018 4:27 pm

Thanks for sharing and inspiring everyone to donate their organs. It is true once someone dies their organs can light up someone’s lives.

There is another important reason why people do not come forward to donate organs Vartika. That is because many people harbour superstitious religious beliefs like it is important to carry one’s body intact to the grave. I have talked to one very old person who really believes this and is against eye donation. These taboos also have to be gotten rid of. Fine article.

September 10, 2018 5:35 pm

This is a brave and noble decision you have taken. I guess I should think about it too.

That’s such an informative post and inspiring as well! Yes, organ donation should be encouraged.

September 10, 2018 6:30 pm

Great detailed post on Donating Organ! I hope it inspires many and we all support this.

September 10, 2018 7:06 pm

I was seriously not aware of the range of organs that we could donate. This is an extremely useful post you have shared Vartika. Thanks a ton.

A very humane, noble gesture Varthika. Thanks for spreading awareness and for sharing useful links. Every effort counts.
One can be generous and compassionate even in death by donating organs to needy.
I have registered for complete body donation.

I’ve been encouraging people to become organ donors for a while as well. I hear it very often that their faith doesn’t allow defacing a dead body. I try to talk to them about it but then again faith is so often unquestionable.

I always wanted to donate organ and this post is what I was waiting for. Thank you so much Vartika.

September 12, 2018 7:27 pm

This is such an informative post. Considering that I recently blogged about what I wanted to do on my last day on this earth, I mentioned donating organs as a part of it. I loved the way you’ve ended this post. Touching and hard hitting. And hey, congratulations on getting featured on Indiblogger!
