Today is the death anniversary of "Dr V", the light behind the India based Aravind Eye Hospitals, which cured tens of thousands of people from cataract blindness, most of them free of cost."Dr Venkataswamy's pioneering work and his compassionate spirit has been recognised by a number of honours. Among them are the Padmashree from the Government of India, The Helen Keller International Award, which has been presented to him at the United Nations, and the timelife service award from the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness. We await with eagerness his first lecture on the theme of 'Rationalism and Spiritualism'. Please welcome Dr Govinda Venkaswamy."---Harvard Divinity School, 1992The below is a video about Dr V and the Aravind Eye Hospitalshttp://www.aravind.org/ivisiongoogle.htmOrhttp://www.aravind.org/ivision/homepage1000.htmHave a fruitful time.
