Identity is described as “the distinguishing character or personality of an individual” by Webster's dictionary. It is synonymous with individuality. An individual need to be identified every moment while living in a society as well as after death. The significance of establishing identity of an individual is of immense importance for the society. In case of mass disasters, air plane crashes or bomb blasts, the parts of human bodies get piled up resulting in the difficulty in identifying different parts belonging to each individual.
