In his death, a 45-year-old man from Hyderabad has given a new lease of life to several people in Texas, USA.

A software professional, Rajiv Putam, who died due to a brain aneurysm, is survived by two children aged 11 years and 15 years old. His grief-stricken wife, Bhagya, donated all the organs of her husband, reported The Times Of India.

A 21-year-old man who received his lungs can now breathe and a 41-year-old got a new lease of life with the liver transplant.

It did not stop there: one of Rajiv’s kidneys went to a 53-year-old woman who waited for 12 days for the life-saving transplant, and the other kidney was transplanted to a male aged 64, whose life was saved in Houston.

Anisha Rajesh, who administers an organisation called ‘Upasana Kalakendra’ said in her Facebook post that Rajiv Putam, who was father of one of her dance students, Keertana Putam, had passed away.

It’s with deep sorrow that I inform the untimely demise of Sri Rajiv Putam, father of one of our dance students,…

Anisha said, “We have had a close relationship with Keerthana’s family from the beginning years of Upasana Kalakendra. Rajiv and Bhagya (Keerthana’s mother) have always offered a helping hand at all our functions and events. They were a part of Upasana family for the past six years.”

Rajiv had dropped her daughter for the dance class on September 9, Saturday morning at 7 am and went back home. But at 7:40 am, he collapsed. Then he was airlifted to Memorial Hermann hospital downtown.

Anisha said, “He had a very serious brain hemorrhage, and unfortunately, a large amount blood in his brain had clotted and doctors could not save him … I salute and admire Bhagya’s decision, even in this time of a huge personal loss, to donate all of Rajiv’s organs.”

Urging people to donate for the family, Anisha said, “Rajiv being the only earning member, the family will require our support to recover from this tragedy.”

The Logical Indian community offers condolences to the deceased family and all the people whose lives he touched. We also salute the courage of Rajiv’s wife, Bhagya, who at this point of such a personal loss donated his organs and saved several lives. His legacy will live on through those he has saved.
