I came out of the hospital after getting blood samples taken from me for testing. It was 7.30 in the morning and even then the road was busy with people going to work, children going school and vendors starting their work. As I had had nothing from 5 in the morning, I thought I would have something to drink before going home. I saw that a tender coconut vendor was getting ready to start his day. I went to him and asked him to give me one which had good amount of water in it. As he started to cut it, the sickle missed a little and he hurt his hand. It was not a very serious injury but as he was an old man and felt a little bad at his injury. I asked him to be careful and then he told me that he could not see properly due to cataract formation and so only he was not able to do his work properly. I then told him about the various eye hospitals in Chennai who operate the poor free of cost. I also gave him the phone number and address. I finished my drink, paid him and went home. I completely forgot about this incident. After nearly 2 months, I happened to pass by that shop. He called out to me, I saw that he was wearing a pair of dark glasses. He thanked me first and told me that one of his eyes had been operated upon and he could see well thro that now. He was very thankful to me for directing him to such a service. As we were talking, his son and his friends gathered around us and that man told everyone that I had only helped him regain sight. I told him then that he should also pledge to donate his eyes after death. That got all of them interested and I explained to them the importance of eye donation. They all assured me that they would pledge their eyes and also to spread this message to their friends and relatives. I went away from those wonderful people happy that I could do my tiny bit in spreading awareness for eye donation.
