Infinit Vision

At DV seminar today, Pavi Krishnan showed a documentary Infinite Vision – a very inspiring story about Dr. Govindappa Venkataswamy (Dr. V) and Aranvind Eye Care System. It’s amazing that Dr. V turned a 11-bed clinic into one of the largest eye care facility in the world, treating over 1.4 million patients each year, two-thirds of them for free. The film is beautiful, inspring and spiritual. I would like to see it again if I have a chance.

The following poem captured the essence of Dr. V’s spirit and remarkable work he has done with Aranvind Eye Care System:

Because thou hast obeyed my timeless will

Because thou hast chosen to share earth’s struggle and fate

And leaned in pity over earth-bound men

And turned aside to help and yearned to save

I bind by thy heart’s passion thy heart to mine

And lay my splendid yoke upon thy soul

Now will I do in Thee my marvelous works

– ‘Savitri’, Sri Aurobindo
