I'm Bharat, a blogger from India.

When I started writing on my blog, I used to ask myself if I should write at all. If yes, why? I write for myself. This may sound egoistic but it is self-explanatory as well. Because I want freedom from my thought cycle, I get mental catharsis by just writing out whatever it is. While having some serious events with myself, say the death of my mother first and then father, writing down made a record of my emotions at a given time which I’m never going to repeat. I do write for my daughter, my son and their friends. I want to tell my experiences and let them know about me. I have done this in Life At 60 article series – my mini-autobiography, telling all about me. I want to summarize what I have read. My book reviews are one example. I can re-read the book and memorize the same after reading my own book reviews. I want to be a history teacher. I have read many books on the history of Gujarat, India and the world, I want to tell this as a storyteller to all. Lastly, I want to exhibit my level of high intelligence and prove it to myself, if not to others. The series of 250+ articles prove this for me and makes me a showman of the types I want to be.

Before Shirdi, Shivarimal and After Saputara, Shivarimal - Story of a School for Blind Children

We visit Saputara (the only hill station in Gujarat) round the year for pleasure trips. Similarly, the devotees of Sai Baba visit Shirdi frequently. For a change and possibly a better experience, I’d like to suggest you visit Shivarimal (a Free Residential School for Visually Impaired (Blind) and Physically Challenged Children), about 20 km from Saputara and 93 km away from Bilimora on Bilimora-Saputara road. Let me tell you my reasons for details.

My close friend Piyushbhai Dharaiya formed a charitable trust in the name of his wife Late Jyotsanaben and decided to donate the interest away, every year. I suggested him to visit Shivarimal School for Blind Children and experience the emotions of blind students. We finally visited this place on Sunday, February 16th, 2014 and the result is this introductory article.

Blindness - All A Seeing Person Must Know

Eye Donation F.A.Q.

What is a cornea and how do cornea transplants restore sight?
The cornea is a clear dime-sized tissue that covers the front of the eye. If the cornea becomes clouded through disease or injury, vision is impaired and sometimes lost entirely.
The only substitute for a human cornea is another human cornea donated at death by someone who thus leaves a living legacy.

Who can donate eyes?
Almost everyone can donate his or her eyes. Donor tissue that can’t be used for transplant can, with consent, be used for medical education and research purposes.
