The theme of this study was Indian Organ Trade: Public and Private Sector. It was believed that research literature on this subject is dominated by Human Rights Discourse (HRD), which prohibits analysis. The aim was to check whether thinking outside human resource development and asanas in weak cultural relativity could create a better understanding of the underlying causes of Indian organ trade. Using discourse analysis, Indian reality was incorporated and conceptualized as inequality poverty discourse and discussed human resource development and organ trade. The objective was to help in creating a diverse basis to solve the problem of organ trade. Using empirical evidence from Lucknow and Bangalore, it was shown that literature was banned by the Ministry of Human Resource Development. The study concluded that organ trade cannot be supported by law based on human rights, but can be combated by scientific medical studies, by providing organ sale options and strengthening the media.
