On the day that 7-year-old Deyaan Udani learnt about organ donation in school, he came home and pushed his parents to pledge his organs, telling them that 'instead of becoming ashes they could save lives', and that he would like to list himself as a donor when he grew up.
A few months later, while on vacation with his family in India, just a week before they were due to fly back to Sydney, Deyaan began to complain of severe headaches due to multiple clots in his brain. Within a week his condition deteriorated and he was declared brain dead. His parents decided to donate his organs, making him Maharashtra's youngest donor. A 7-year-old girl from Goregaon who otherwise had only few weeks left to live, received Deyaan's heart and a new lease of life.
