A ‘Brave’ Toddler-The Youngest Organ Donr

Four generations of his family served in the Indian Army and battled the country’s enemies from across the border. His father being a Sena Medal winner// and with ‘Showrya’ meaning ‘brave’ for a name, it appeared that the baby boy was destined to tread the family path.

Retired Colonel S S Malik, Showrya’s grandfather said, "My son has killed militants. He wanted his son to be a hero as well, and so decided to donate the organs. We assumed the organs will go to another child, but no matter, my gra
