    Although it is a gallant effort. Why bring all 25,000 donors to one place? Just to be in the Guinness book of World Records as the news states?

    How much is this all effort going to cost and who would be paying for it?

    Can this money be used helping the needy or create some cottage industries in the rural areas? As the saying goes," If you give a fish to a man, he will eat for a day but if you teach him how to fish, he will have food for the rest of his life".

    One should find out how many times have they donated the blood in their lives before?I hope once a month as many of us do.

    In my opinion this is nothing but a propaganda based on me-ism rather than One-ism.

    If the SGPC had organised this event with the Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, Jain and all other religious organisations along with the NGO's to have the same event all around the country during Holla Mohalla, the blood donation would be in millions and would benefit many more and also would be cost effective. But may be The Guinness Book of World Records would not accept that as one event, which seems to be the main objective and self pat at the back. Balei... Balei....

    And, then they say I am a dreamer.......
