About him...
Praveen Rao has just moved to Delhi from Canada. What really made us feature Rao for this column is the way he celebrated his birthday.

This year on his 30th birthday, Rao decided to host a blood donation camp to celebrate this milestone date in his life. According to Rao, “I held a blood donation camp for my 30th birthday on Saturday. I have always wanted to donate blood, but I guess I was too lazy. So, this is an opportunity for lazy people like me and ones who have not donated as often as they could to come out, socialise with like-minded people and try to do our small bit to make a difference and stay healthy.”

In order to help him with this good cause, Rao managed to find around around 77 blood donors
