Visually-challenged lady donates eye
Despite being visually challenged, Smt. Jigyasa Kubre, co-convenor of audio-cassette library of Drishtihin Kalyan Sangh, Nagpur, has set an example before the society by donating her one eye on June 6 in Nagpur. She has thus strengthened the cause of the Drishtihin Kalyan Sangh that visually-challenged persons are not a burden on the society but are very useful. After donating the eye she said that visually-challenged persons needed opportunities and the society should provide these to them. Jigyasa Kubre was visually perfect till 18 years of her life but due to retina damage, she lost her eyesight. She felt that despite her retina being damaged, she could provide sight to two persons who would use her cornea. Shri Anand Sahastrabuddhe welcomed her by presenting her a bouquet. Shri Avinash Sangwai, national general secretary of the Kalyan Sangh, and Shri Ajay Joshi, office secretary were also present on the occasion.
