All Ye Cheapo Desi SOBs, Forget Cremation or Burial

Yeah, yeah we know the Hindu clowns think they won’t get moksha until they are cremated and the Muslim and Christian idiots think they won’t find salvation until they are buried.

But we say, screw all that cremation/burial bakwas (nonsense).

Instead, donate your organs for there are so many in desperate need of them.

In the U.S. alone, the statistics are pretty grim and the organ requirements enormous. Look at the numbers below:

Organ Donation

If you live in the U.S., you can donate your organs in several ways: while getting a driver’s license at the DMV, you can register yourself as an organ donor.

Second, you can tell your family and friends that you’d like to donate your organs after death.

Third, visit the U.S. government web site for more details. From what we’ve read, there’s a tremendous shortage of organs like eyes, kidney, heart, liver, lung et al all over the world.

Indian Picture

Most likely, one of the reasons why we read reports of trafficking in kidneys in the Indian cities of Delhi, Bangalore and Chennai is because of the tremendous shortage of that crucial organ.

Of course, shortage of organs is not restricted to India.

Even in the U.S., there is a severe shortage of organ donors and many thousands on the waiting list never get a chance.

Folks, this is an avoidable tragedy.

No Cost to You

Yes, we know well that most desis are cheapo SOBs who won’t spend a penny on their fellow human beings. But here’s a chance to do some good at literally no cost to your wallet. Donate your organs. Hey, your loved ones might even be spared the funeral costs involved in your cremation or burial when you donate your organs.

Do it today. Donate your organs.

    As far as I know, most desis register to become a donor during the license process.. atleast me, one of the cheapest guys i know, didn’t hesistate a second to register. but the problem, we don’t die easily. Responds:

    1. We think the DMV registration process is not enough.

    We need to take it to the next level…tell family and friends about donating all our organs so that if we die in our sleep rather than on the road the organ donation process still goes through without a hitch.

    2. When the Red Box usage goes up in your area, we’ll know you are with Muruga although your components may be inside the Rednecks.

    BTW, Frozen River is now on Red Box. Nice movie.

    interestingly i am very busy today..(not a bad thing) couldn’t get out to get my free movie.. yeah, Frozen River is in my radar. Responds:

    We were so busy today that we took a two-hour siesta (really).

    Now that we are up, see how productively we are spending our time.

    In christinity we have a prayer, called prayer of faith… one of its lines reads as ‘we believe in the resurrection of the body (at the final judgement day)’. When I was a kid I was quite amused by this line, and asked the clerics … “Does this mean it is good to die when you are young than dying old and sick… so that you will have a better ‘eternal’ life?” sometimes I didnt get answer…

    Recently in a religious discussion a lady asked a cleric
    ‘now a days donating organs is seen as a great stuff, but after dying if I donate both of my kidneys how will my body survive in the time of resurrection?’ … we all literally laughed… Christianity changes itself time to time, now they are encouraging organ donation…
    Actually they beleive human being is made of soil and he will become soil in the end, they might have forgotten that before making it to the soil it can make a journey in few more bodies though 🙂 Responds:

    Do you have any web links to agencies facilitating organ donation in your city?

    Desis in the US definitely have a better sense. Most of my friends (including myself & family) have registered as Organ Donors. I very much doubt if people don’t donate organs for religious reasons. I’ve heard opinions that they don’t like their own body being dissected or butchered after their death. It’s quite surprising that they think that way as if they would still feel the punctures and cuts during dissection!!

    Sometimes, donating organs (if an organ donor dies) requires presence of mind to the family members. The mental status due to grief, emotions, and feelings, they may not realize how important it’s to donate organs and we really can’t blame them for it.

    When my dad & brother passed away (in separate incidents) in Bangalore, we first called the Red Cross & made arrangements to remove the organs starting from eyes to kidney.

    You don’t have to be a cheapo for this…you just need to have a heart and the presence of mind.

    I don’t quite understand your point about the relatives being spared funeral costs just because of organ donation. After the organs have been removed, the body, now bereft of them, would still require burial or cremation. Responds:

    By the time, you are done with the heart, lungs, kidneys, eyes, liver, skin, bone, tendons, pancreas, heart valves, femoral veins, great saphenous veins, small saphenous vein, bone marrow, intestine et al, there’s not much left of the human body that you may as well let the hospital do whatever they want with the rest of it.

    Basically, what we meant was that we ought to just give the whole body away to the hospitals and let the doctors harvest or salvage whatever they can. Hospitals ought to become the salvage yards for bodies, salvaging what they can for the benefit of others.

    On the ‘spared funeral costs’, yes its true, each and everything in the body is almost recyclable. But most of the Desis who donate organs define a scope, they still want the body looking good for cremation / burial etc. But it would be great if the entire body is just left in the hospital. Just imagine if all of the skin is reused (it would be great for victims of fire accidents) how would you have a funeral…? so my view is to have quick funeral, finsish all rituals quickly and just hand over the body to hospital and forget it as you do after burning it of burrying it. Responds:

    Do you have web site links for Organ Donation in your city?

    If things are made easy in terms of publishing the addresses/phone numbers/web site links, more people may come forward to donate their organs.
