    The heart of a teacher from Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) run school is now beating in a 14-year-old girl from United Arab Emirates (UAE).

    Fourty-three-year old Parimal Bhagat, a teacher in SMC-run Nagar Prathamik Shiskan Samiti School at Kosad has given new lease of life to UAE's 14-year-old Khadija Abdullah Obidallah. Bhagat's heart was flown all the way to Chennai's Fortis Malar hospital from Surat—1,615 kilometers in just 155 minutes—and transplanted into the teenage girl, who was suffering from heart ailment since long.

    Bhagat complained of a severe headache on early morning of March 2. Bhagat's wife, Jagruti, applied an ointment to ease the pain. As per the routine, Bhagat was supposed to leave the house at around 7:00 am for his job at Nagar Prathamik School number 285 at Kosad. That day, he did not wake up till 9:00. His parents came to wake him up, but he was not responding to the call.

    However, Bhagat was immediately shifted to the BAPS hospital at around 10:30 am. The CT scan and other reports suggested he had suffered severe brain hemorrhage.

    Bhagat was declared brain dead on March 3 by the team of doctors at BAPS hospital.

    BAPS hospital contacted the team of Donate Life regarding the brain dead patient. The team members met Bhagat's wife, Jagruti, who was convinced to donate his organs in order to provide a new lease of life to those who are in need.

    Donate Life members started their efforts to search the patients matching the profile of Bhagat for the heart transplant. They contacted many hospitals and transplant centres in Mumbai and Ahmedabad, but could not find anyone for the heart transplant.

    However, National Organ and Tissue Transplant Organisation (NOTTO) was contacted by the Donate Life. The details of Bhagat was shared to NOTTO and it was found that there was no patient requiring heart transplant in the A+ blood group.

    The name of UAE's 14-year-old Khadija was registered at Chennai's Fortis Malar hospital for the requirement of heart.

    The heart was successfully transplanted into the teenage girl from UAE by the team of doctors at Chennai's Fortis Malar hospital on Saturday.

    How the Fcuk did a UAE citizen get priority in heart transplant over an Indian citizen ?

    How is it possible that in a country of 1.25 Billion people we had nobody who needed a A+ blood group heart ?

    This stinks to high heaven.

    Don't be so coy. I was merely providing you options to show your "gratitude".

    Since you were comfortable with selling body organs, I though you would like to expand the scope to include complete bodies too.

    It does not appear likely. The probability of that happening are impossibly low. I would suspect tampering to ensure somebody who PAID MORE got the organ.
