E for Eyes!!

Sarvendriyanam, Nayanam Pradhanam!!


Indriyam means senses in Sanskrit. The five senses of the human body are Sight, Smell, Taste, Touch, and Hearing. As each sense has its own importance, vision takes priority above all. What would we do without our eyes? Can we close our eyes for a day and see how it feels like? Or at least few hours?

One would be shocked to know the number of people who are visually challenged. Please Click here to check the facts. How many of us know that some parts of our body could be used for others in need after we are gone?

When granny was alive she would say, the only part you can use in my body is my eyes and please give them to someone. We followed her last wish and donated her eyes. Following her footsteps, I decided to be of use to someone later if not now :P 

They say practice before you preach. So, did I. I signed up here. Will you too?

  18. It is amazing how much we can tell about someone just by looking at someone's eyes. My husband has an incredible way of telling me so much about someone just by looking at their eyes. I also believe it is true when we look at a dog's eyes!

  23. Lovely post... I used to always get compliments for my eyes. Though I never thought that they are as big and beautiful as ppl say, I gladly accepted their praise. I love to donate my eyes. And I ll definitely do it. My memories go back to the green-eyed beautiful Aishwarya Rai Bachhan winning the Miss World title and promoting the eye donation camp. My decision was made then! :) :)

  26. Very true. Sometimes when I see differently abled people, I think of how gifted I am and still how I complain that my life could have been better. So true. I've also been thinking of this organ donation for some time.
