What could be more noble than eye donation? Those whose eyesight is lost, they stop even imagining that they will be able to see the world again. But in order for the blind to see, a parent has kept their 18-day-old girl alive even after her death.
Just 18 days old daughter Aparajita from Madhya Pradesh became the youngest eye donor of Jharkhand.Aparajita, daughter of Dheeraj Gupta, a resident of Shahdol, MP, died during treatment at the hospital. Immediately after the death of the daughter, the decision of eye donation was taken. He gave light to the eyes of two people. It became the smallest eye donor ever. According to Dr. Bharti Kashyap, a cornea retriever, Aparajita has become the smallest top 5 donor not only in Jharkhand but also in the country. Aparajita was the first child of the parents.
Aparajita was born after three years of marriage. Only 3 out of 100 people across the country get a cornea. On the other hand thousands of people die every day. But due to lack of awareness, they are deprived of donating eyes. This is the reason that every year from 25 August to 8 September, National Eye Donation Fortnight is celebrated to make people aware. Aparajita’s mother Rajshree and father Dheeraj Gupta will be honored by the Governor of Jharkhand on August 31 during the program organized to commemorate Eye donation fortnight.
The child was ill since birth, the food pipe was not developed in her body. She was born on 18th July in Harigovind Nursing Hospital, Piska More, Ranchi, Jharkhand. He was operated on 20th July. But she died on 4th August.
After the death of Aparajita, her parents said that only her lovely eyes were visible after the birth of the daughter. Expressed desire to donate eyes by contacting Kashyap Eye Hospital. Immediately after reaching the team from the hospital, the cornea of the girl was retrieved. And it was kept safe in the eye bank. Its cornea was transplanted in two people on the second or third day itself. Now both are seeing the world through my daughter’s eyes. The daughter is no more, but her eyes are still alive.
