    Mr. N. Raja conducted an informal quiz, NCC cadets who answered were given a band.  This way cadets started paying attention. The session went on for 1 hour with some queries at the end from the cadets.

    Questions asked:

    1. Can a male brain death patient give an organ to a female patient who is need?
    2. If a Brain Death patient doesn’t have any relatives then how will he donate organs?
    3. If a person commits suicide can he donate his/her organs?
    4. Why are organs donated from a Brain Death patient not from a Natural Death patient?

    The questions and answer session went on for 15 minutes; every question was answered by Mr. Raja. MOHAN Foundation thanks Col. Pankaj Sharma for inviting us to speak to the student cadets.
