How to give without expecting anything in return #3

Finding someone to be kind to, however, is not as straightforward as it might seem. Last year some guy decided he wanted to donate part of his liver to a complete stranger. He had to spend months trying to convince doctors and psychologists that he wasn't crazy or with a deathwish. After going through a battery of tests he finally got to donate part of his liver to a child. His liver grew back. See? Like Prometheus. Organs do regenerate. And in the regeneration, you are transformed by the experience. The edges of your being shift. You become fluid.

For some reason this reminds me of Sita going through her trials to prove to Rama that she had been pure during her captivity by Ravana.
