And some thing to be cheerful about

'A year ago, I had no hands': an Afghan soldier's road to recovery after double hand transplant
"People have remarked to Dr Iyer, in the months following the transplant, about how this was a case in which a Hindu surgeon took a Christian man’s hands and put them on a Muslim man, he said.
“But religion, in this case, was so superficial,” Dr Iyer said. “When someone interprets it like that, you’re surprised. Of course it’s a good message. But I can tell you that, when it was all happening, no one gave it a thought. Everyone just did what they felt was right.”"Afghan national Abdul Rahim, who underwent a double hand transplant, greets the family of the donor at a hospital in Kochi. Photo: Special Arrangement
