This wedding saw 700 guests pledging to donate their organs
A wedding that was solemnized in the state of Maharashtra, India, saw a heartwarming display of compassion. Along with the bride and the groom, 700 guests who attended vowed to donate their organs.
The wedding ceremony of Varsha Pagar and Swapnil Kothawade in Nashik will be remembered for a long time to come – not for its ostentatious display of wealth like most Indian weddings – but for the noble cause that it promoted. Apart from the pledge to donate organs, 60 people also donated blood on the occasion.
“Both my husband and I want to donate our organs. We thought our wedding ceremony would be the right occasion to pledge to do so as there would be a lot of guests and it would help create awareness for organ donation,” Varsha said. The couple share a common interest in doing social work.
