It starts…

It started with the common argument “Why on earth came the necessity to donate your blood?” Then started the reasoning session. They said, "Students should not do such things. This is the age to study and work hard. If you donate blood, you will become weak. Then who will be responsible for your ill health". Others said – elderly people like us can donate blood, as we have no work to do. Moreover, we have tax exemption if we donate blood. The grin on that face made my blood pressure goes high. Before I could speak, they started again, “this is the josh of your youth! Therefore, you keep doing such things. You might be feeling that your blood will be useful to someone else. But let me tell you that they will sell it for a price and it’s just a bogus thing!”
That statement shook me out of my slumber. India- a place where people used to give a life for other’s has reached on the verge of calling this humanity a bogus thing, a fraud! People have become so selfish that people who are against blood donation are ready to do it for tax exemption. I pity these people!
