 Humanism comes calling
Kidney related problems can be anything from minor to fatal. Complications of kidney have been ever rising and so has the demand for Kidney donors. The benevolence of Kidney donors has saved many lives so far. The stories are countless, one such story was what saved a Kerala youth Sooraj, a 30-year-old from Kerala. This story has something extra to be inspired. The donor was a bishop, who did not give any importance to the taboo that surrounds the faith or practice of organ donation among priests and bishops.

A welcome first
Bishop Jacob Muricken is thought to be the first serving bishop to have donated a kidney while still alive. Bishop Jacob has cited the teachings of Pope as a driving force behind his decision to donate his kidney. Sooraj, on the other hand, has conveyed his utmost delight at what he considers as Divine intervention. Father Chiramel who was the founder of Kidney foundation of India would be a proud man to see what his initiative has unfolded.


The Logical Indian applauds the bishop for setting a great example in organ donation. These incidents should remind us all, religion and faith vanish to thin air when it comes to helping each other. What this incident teaches us is that humanism wins over everything else, it always has.
