Sri Vinodh Rayal, an engineer by profession and an avid social worker since childhood has organized many social activities like education programmes, helping the disabled, organizing blood donation camps through Pawan Kalyan Fans Association. He also secured an admission for his Masters and was about to leave to USA for further education in a week before his death. He was working at Bangalore and was in the process of shifting back to his native place, Tirupati, to spend a week with his parents before leaving to US.
While in Bangalore, some of the fans had organized an awareness session on organ donation in Kolar near Bangalore. He had actively participated in the program and had actively campaigned on behalf of Pawan Kalyan Fans Association and has pledged to donate organs and tissues during the camp and has also pleaded all the fans to pledge and campaign for organ and tissue donation.
After finishing the program, though it was late, he wanted to go back to Tirupati. While on his way back to meet his parents, he was brutally murdered in an altercation while having dinner at a Dhaba near Kolar. His family came forward to donate his eyes as it was his last wish to donate organs and tissues. Knowing this, Sri Pawan Kalyan (prominent movie actor) had visited Vinodh’s home and expressed his condolences to the family of Sri Vinodh Rayal and had announced support to Vinodh Rayal Memorial Charitable Trust. Sri Pawan Kalyan has also been recently appointed as the brand ambassador for organ and tissue donation in Andhra Pradesh (http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/amaravati/pawan-kalyan- appointed-as- jeevan-dhaan-brand-ambassador/articleshow/59846596.cms ).
