Veteran writer and photographer Krishnanand Kamat, who
passed away on February 20, is now alive again through his eyes!
Monday two blind men were grafted with one of Kamat's eyes each. The
surgeries was successfully performed at the B.W.Lions Eye Hospital in
the City by Dr. Rekha Gyanchand, the Director of Lions
Inyernatioanl Eye Bank in Bangalore. In a few weeks, these two men, who
have never been able to see in their life, will be able to see the world
for the first time through Kamat's famous eyes!
So Kamat lives on not only through his photographs, travelogues but
also though his eyes.
"We wish that others are encouraged to donate their eyes through this
news clip", Kamat's son Vikas Kamat said.
