| Kamat Lives|
The Kamats thank everyone who have shown us
support during our loss. (K. L. Kamat passed away on Feb. 20th at his residence due to a cardiac arrest).
Upon his death, Kamat donated his eyes and just now we have received word that they were successfully
implanted on two different people (due to shortage of eyes, recipients are allowed only one eye in India), enabling them to see for the first time in their lives.
So, not only Kamat lives via his books, memorable photographs, and other media, he continues to live through his eyes.
Update: The Eye Foundation of India received a lot of publicity after this blog entry was carried by major Indian media. (sample)
