A professional life becomes successful when it aims equally on social welfare along with the personal development,he added.The talk was carried on by Dr.Vasanth Shenoy,PRO and JointSecretary, Society for Organ Retrieval and Transplantation. The one hour session was extremely enlightening and Dr. Vasanth Shenoy well focused on the Cadaver Organ Transplantation and Living Organ Transplantation. The statistics he projected was extremely thought provoking. The number of people struggling with organ-health issues are increasing at an alarming rate, and the amount of donors are reducing day by day. This is a scaring scenario which need to be corrected for human and social welfare. He urged students to realize their major role in building up a positive society where, a person can well evaluate the need of suffering fellow beings.
