Talking to IANS, Sharma said: "More than 500 donors have already registered. A website would soon be launched to interact and provide info to prospective donors."

He added: "We are trying to arrange for free retinas, kidneys, livers and other body parts to the needy poor."

Sharma and retired banker Dinesh Agnihotri have pledged their bodies to the anatomy department of S.N. Medical College.

"We are trying to get President Pratibha Patil to formally inaugurate the campaign next month," Sharma told IANS.
