"The doctors and counselors explained us that post-mortem has to be done and that it is better to harvest the organs so that a few can get a new lease of life. It is a better thing to do," Ramanamma's son Ramakrishna Raju said on Monday before the organs were harvested at Care Hospital in Maharanipeta.
