A family in Dombivali in Thane district marked the `tervi` or 13th-day rituals of deceased kin by organising a blood camp.

One of the family members of the deceased Kusum Lahu Patil, a resident of Hetutne village, said she died after her children ran from pillar to post in vain to get O-positive blood for her.

“This made us realise the importance of blood and all of us decided to hold a blood donation camp as part of the 13th rituals along with bhajans. This is a good precedent and we hope more people will come up with such initiatives,” former sarpanch Dileep Maharaj Patil said.
