DIAMONDS IN KIDNEY
I recently read in BBC NEWS that “Star Trek” cult Hero William Shatner famously known as “Captain Kirk” recently got his Kidney stone removed and had auctioned it for Charity for a whooping USD 25000.
Is it that Kidney stones among people in USA is a rare phenomenon or is it William Shatner’s Kidney really produces stones more precious than diamond. If it is the former, then I think the Kidney Stone clinics in India have a great export opportunity in USA.
This is not to undermine the noble intentions of Mr. William Shatner to serve the charities, though with a rather heavy dose of arrogance in the means employed. But what is painful is that there are much more productive, useful, innovative and creative products produced by the inmates or beneficiaries of many of the charities themselves which never get even the value of the efforts and money put therein. If these big monied marketing magicians are able to sell those products even at double their actual value, would it not be a great source of inspiration and satisfaction to the charities, when compared to the frustration, that they have to depend on the Kidney Stones of famous personalities for their survival.
What do you have to say about this Witchy. Sometimes I feel the words “Special”, “Famous”, “Value” etc. are all very irrational terms not really connected to any logic.
