Our husbands were happy about our decision,” said Ms. Pushpa and Ms. Kavitha after the donation.Ms. Ananya added that she was overwhelmed by the support extended by her mother and aunt when she conveyed her wish to donate hair.M. Surekha, a lecturer with the Department of Modern Office Practice, said that she took an instant decision to donate hair as she came to witness the event. “I spoke to parents as I came to the hall where donation was arranged. They readily agreed,” she said. “My husband and father like to see me with long hair. But they were happy about my decision as it is for a noble cause. After all it is going to grow,” said T. Suganya, a lecturer with the Department of Instrumentation and Control Engineering. She added that the faculty coming forward for donation motivated students.
