A girl student from Tripura tonsured her head to help the cancer patients.

The student, who is an NSS volunteer, donated her hair to cancer patients, after being motivated by the NSS motto ‘Not Me But You..

The NSS volunteer of Ramkrishna Mahavidyalaya in Kailashahar under Unakoti district of Tripura, about 140 km from Agartala city, compromising her external beauty, shaved off her hair and has gone bald to bring smiles to the cancer patients, who are undergoing treatment.

The NSS volunteer, Kanakanjali Nath, is an Arts stream student, studying in the sixth semester and a resident of Kanchanpur.

She called a local barber and tonsured her head for the noble cause on Friday.

Kanakanjali said she decided to shave off her head as the hairs would be used to make wigs for cancer patients, who are undergoing treatment.

She donated her well-maintained hairs to the Odisha Hair Donation Organisation for the cancer-affected patients, who lost their hairs and are financially weak.

Kanakanjali sent her hairs to the organization through a courier service.

The NSS volunteer said since her school life, she was planning to do something for the cancer patients, but due to some problem, she could not donate her hair earlier.
