This is a beautiful world created by God for us to live in with brightly sprinkled colors in the day light and sparkling stars that twinkle in the sky above us at night.

‘Cornea’ a transparent front part of the eye, it refracts light accounting for approximately two thirds of the eye’s total optical power. Upon death or removal of an eye The cornea absorbs the aqueous humour and becomes lazy. The dead eye (donated for transplant) can be placed in warm chamber with reservoir of sugar and glycogen that generally keeps the cornea transparent for at least 24 hours.

He is the only person in his family to earn and look after his parents. He is a fruit gatherer and every morning goes to the wood to cut down freshly raped fruits and sells them in the market.
His life drastically changed when one fine morning while plucking the fruits a twinge pricked in one of his eyes & damaged.
