Good Samaritan extraordiry

For anyone wishing to do good, nothing can be more disheartening than an unfeeling, cynical milieu that has no time for humane behaviour. But Harish njappa, hailing from Tumakuru district of Kartaka, was made of a very different stuff. The 23-year old youth was returning to Bengaluru on Tuesday morning after casting vote for panchayat elections. A truck ran over his motorcycle on NH-4, severing his body into two. With his lower parts lying a few feet away, Harish began a death struggle on the road, calling out desperately for help. Many vehicles zoomed by while some passers-by even had time to film him on their mobile phones. But none came forward to help. Filly, two ambulances called by the toll gate company maging that section of the highway, reached Harish. He was rushed to the nearest hospital but died of his horrific injuries within a few minutes. Yet even as many ignored his suffering, Harish still pleaded to ambulance paramedics and doctors to harvest his organs. In keeping with his last wish, his eyes were doted to a hospital. Senior doctors have commented that it is almost unheard of for a man split into two to be still able to think with such clarity. And the last thought of this extraordiry braveheart was to help others in need by doting his organs. Such are some Good Samaritans still living in our midst, doing what most people push onto their Gods to deal with.
