There are so many social, environmental, and health issues that need ‘fixing’ in our world and it is not possible that one person can do everything and solve it all but still everyone can do something to make a difference to the world at large and everyone can be a Hero in his or her own way.
At Voylla.com we decided to highlight these Heroes from all walks of life that are making our world a better place in a multitude of ways. At regular intervals we will feature a Hero on our blog whom we think deserves some real recognition and celebration for the outstanding work they have done in our communities and in our world.
As the first part of the series, we will talk about Bhavana Jagwani, a renowned social activist from the pink city of India, Jaipur.

Organs That Can be Donated[/caption]
"There are many organs that can save lives, but are not passed on to the people waiting for organ-transplant as there is a lack awareness about this concept in the society." She said that she is working to create this awareness. When asked how people are reacting to her campaign, she said changing the mind-set takes time, but she is optimistic because earlier, she had been associated with eye bank and proudly adds that now Rajasthan ranks among topmost states in the eye - donation. So, soon we will be having similar statistics for organ donation as well.
Answering to the question how she manages to find time for this social activity, she said that she has five children, three are biological and the other two are her social activism and jewellery designing and like any mother she loves all her kids equally and finds time for each.
