'It's a shame I couldn't donate my son's heart'
"We wanted our son's heart to keep beating after his death, to give someone else life, but it will never happen." The father who donated his son's liver, kidney, and eyes after he died in a road mishap has an overwhelming remorse: that he could not donate his heart "because Mumbai does not have experienced hands to make it happen". Last Saturday, 26-year-old Kunal Ashok Chheda, a Dombivli resident, was on his way to help rescue a leopard that had entered the premises of a Mulund school. When he came to know the forest department had set a trap to bell the cat, he turned back his bike to go home. But he was never to reach.
