Imagine a situation where you can be practically immortal, even when your physical being passes on!
That’s what my Mother achieved. When she passed away on February 8, 2010, she pledged her body to the St.Johns Medical College. We were a little sad, I must admit.

Sury and I have pledged our organs after our death.
