Happy Birthday!! I left you a voicemail, but wanted to say I hope you are resting comfortably and getting stronger by the day. Can't wait to have a huge celebration for your 30th! In the meantime, remember these wise words: "Beneath the clothes, we find the man, and beneath the man, we find....his....nucleus"

Hi Vinay,
Wishing you a very speedy recovery process.
I want to take this opportunity to acknowledge my niece Rashmi who so enthusiastically registered on line. she had just delivered a baby in April, and even with all the overwhelming responsibilities and sleeplessness of a first time mother, kept calling me anxiously that she didn't receive the packet. As soon as she received the packet, she completed it and mailed it immediately. She made sure that her husband and her sister Dipthi at Boston registered also.


Congratulations to Vinay and Sameer on finding matches. God bless them and their teams for the efforts that will help South Asians all over the world. I pray for a successful transplant and recovery to both.

Hi Vinay and Rashmi,

Just browsed Sameer's website and came to know about the fantastic news that he got a perfect 10 match from a dedicated and committed donor. What a miracle! The LA/Orange County volunteers are so happy!

However, as Sameer says, there is still more to do. There are still others on the list who have to find their matches. I am now a committed donor and a volunteer. I am sure you and Sameer will use your experience and continue the service to others for the rest of your lives. You have the resources/drive/youth/experience on your side. Vinay, now that you have a unique perspecive of life now, I am sure you and Rashmi will become compassionate doctors.

Today is Krishna Janmastami. May Lord Krishna bless you both and the others who are on the list waiting for their matches. We are praying!

Sudha and Prakash (Orange County)
