Why is this fascination for the dead body? After all, everybody dies.
Death is inevitable (perhaps the only one).
So what happens when a person dies?
According to various religions, there are rituals performed to bid goodbye to that person.
Cremation, burial, burning or even leaving the body to feast upon for the vultures.
But why do we not think of utlilizing the body for the good of the other fellow human being. There are many ways in which a body can be utlilized, so as to benefit the others.
Organ donation, eye donation, giving it to colleges for students to learn.
Well the best form to live, even after your death is to donate your organs for the sake of other. This has to endorsed by you and religiously followed by your relatives in a timely manner.
No other form of donation can equal this gesture.
So why is religion coming in the way of the benevolent gesture? Is it not the duty of the religiious leaders to to advocate this practice. After all, you are giving away something that is no longer useful to you.
The religious preachers, rather than ridicule it in the name of religion, should rather preach on this life giving gesture.
Let better sense prevail. AMEN !!!
