He was left paralysed after he was hit by a grenade in his head during the terror attack on Oberoi Hotel in Mumbai. But before a grenade fell on his helmet, he shot dead a terrorist. A splinter is still lodged in his brain.
Dr I Unnikrishnan Namboothiri will deliver the welcome address, with Dr I Bhavdasan Namboothiri presiding.
Mrs M Padmavathi, president of Mayyil panchayat would deliver the felicitation speech honoring Havildar PV Manesh,SC. The Awareness Session on the importance of Blood Donation would be led by Dr Shaheeda KB, Medical Officer, District Hospital, Kannur. So, why donate blood ? As the American Red Cross reiterates,”You don’t need a special reason to give blood. You just need your own reason.Some of us give blood because we were asked by a friend.Some know that a family member or a friend might need blood some day. Some believe it is the right thing we do. Whatever be your reason, the need is constant and your contribution is important for a healthy and reliable blood supply. And you’ll feel good knowing you’ve helped change a life.” We totally agree.
