Introduction :

Well, I have come across a myriad of formal and informal conversations in my life. Some of them were quite boring, while others were highly influential.

Who was the person ?

However, one such unusual conversation I would like to talk about today, which not only left an everlasting impression but also was remarkably impactful plus motivating, that even after ages the memories are still fresh in my mind. I consider myself a social butterfly, and I always like to interact with people.

When and where did you have the conversation ?

I vividly remember that when I was in school, my father took me to one of his friend’s house. Apart from being my dad’s co-worker, his friend was also a social activist whose work was to spread awareness about organ donation. Since I was too young at that time to understand the importance of tissue donation and transplantation, I did not pay attention to his talk. When he realized that I was least involved in his talks, he decided to switch the topic and turned on the television for my entertainment. Out of the blue, one advertisement flashed on the TV regarding eye donation by one of the regarding famous Bollywood actresses, which caught my attention.

Gazing at my inquisitiveness, he had a broad smile on his face and decided to explain to me everything in detail. His way of explanation was incredibly fantastic as he described to me in a straightforward way, yet with the relevant examples.

What was the conversation about ?

I vividly remember that I was exceedingly engrossed in our discussion that I forgot that it was getting late for my dad and me to go home. Nevertheless, I bombarded him with back to back questions to have a clear idea of how it works. My father was a little impatient that day, but his friend was as cool as a cucumber and explained to me every little detail. I was thrilled to pieces when I got to know that even after death, a person’s body parts could be beneficial and can give life to others if it is stored properly. However, I was a little disappointed when he showed me the actual percentage of people donating their organs, as it was only approx .0002% of the total population.
