Harvest Response Harvest, by Manjula Padmanabhan, was a very interesting play. The idea was very out of the ordinary and caused me to think about the value of life. When I read the introduction, I was very confused by the idea, but became open-minded while reading the play to pretend it was realistic. The donor-receiver company, called InterPlanta, helps Ginni, an American, protect herself by buying rights to Om’s body parts in case she ever needs them. An American buying an Indian’s body parts displays the idea that first world countries are more powerful, thus able to use, third world countries to help themselves. The protagonist, Om Prakash finds an unusual job as a donor for another person. At first, Ma and Jaya, his mother and wife, aren’t supportive of this decision because he or his body parts could be taken and given to someone else. Jaya says, “How can I hold your hand, touch your face, knowing that at any moment it might be snatched away from me and flung across the globe!” (page 8, lines 96-98) If my husband chose to donate his body, I would be upset as well.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
