Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - AN­JURI NA­YAR SINGH

Ac­tor Shivaji Satam (left), who plays ACP Pradyu­man in the TV show CID, has pledged his or­gans for those in need of med­i­cal at­ten­tion but are not able to af­ford it.

“I don’t con­sider this as some­thing great. I think it is ev­ery in­di­vid­ual’s duty and re­spon­si­bil­ity to work to­wards the greater good of hu­man­ity,” Satam says.

“There are times when some­one wants to, but can’t ex­tend a help­ing hand, be­cause his cir­cum­stances do not al­low him to. But pledg­ing an or­gan is some­thing ev­ery­one can do,” he says, and adds that pledg­ing or­gans does not re­quire any­one else’s ap­proval and is some­thing that can be done com­pletely on your own.

The ac­tor is hope­ful that it will mo­ti­vate his fans to do the same. “I still re­mem­ber the day I pledged to do­nate all my or­gans ... I can never for­get that feel­ing. I hope more peo­ple take up such good causes and at least pledge one or­gan, if not the en­tire body, so that we can help a hun­dred oth­ers who need our help,” he says.
