Driving Away Darkness


Babu, 53, is a former lorry driver who had been driving for more than 30 years. He was left suddenly out of work when his vision began to fail. He had blurred vision and was found to have cataract in both eyes. The cost of cataract surgery loomed large before him, but he was guided towards Sankara’s free surgery by one of his acquaintances who knew one of our field workers. After deciding to go ahead with surgery, he hasn’t looked back ever since! He resumed his job as a bus driver in a private college, and is happy to be able to drive again. He looks forward to playing with his grandchildren soon.
