Tamil Directors Pledge Body Donation For Research News/Gossip
In a laudable initiative, 64 members of the Tamil Nadu Film Directors' Association have decided to sign up for donating their bodies for medical research. Their family members have also pledged to donate their bodies.
Led by Association president Vikraman, vice-presidents K S Ravikumar and P Vasu, and general secretary R K Selvamani met Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa at the secretariat on Tuesday and gave her documents announcing their pledge. President Vikraman said he was inspired by Kamal Haasan, who pledged his body a few years.
"It makes sense to donate the entire body than a few organs, you know," Vikraman said. The Association would also hold awareness campaigns on body donation.
Tamil Nadu chief minister lauded the initiative.
