      It is a happy news to see our Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj has been discharged from AIIMS after getting her damaged kidneys replaced and they are functioning normal.Thanks to Doctors of AIIMS who performed operation. No doubt She has blessings of all of us particularly NRIs who are/were helped while they are/were in trouble at abroad.We also appreciate her for not taking major treatment in India and not at abroad which we see our politicians prefer to take it normally.She has more faith in Indian Doctors.Others must follow.

        she was able to get a donor kidney from an unrelated person very quickly , within a few weeks .lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Normally patients undergoing transplant at AIIMS have to wait a long time (even years !) on a waiting list.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;According to the Mohan Foundation, in India, only 1 in 5000 patients on the wait list actually gets an organ.lt;br/gt;The Ministry of Health has estimated that the annual requirement for kidneys could range between 1-2 lakh with a mere 5,000 transplants occurring in reality.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Last year around 5 lakh Indians died awaiting an organ transplant !
