But in Feb 2015 all that completely changed when he was battered one night through acid by a group of ten men at the same time as going to his homeland in Bihar. After that he was robbed of the 3000 by those victims that he had on him, but was also left there by the roadside, with unbearable pain all night.

A family friend, who was a vegetable vendor, recommended “Punarjot Eye Bank Society”as he had undergone a surgery there.

With this Ramanand will have satisfactory vision restored in his right eye to function autonomously at home. Ramanand is appreciative to Dr Ramesh for achieving something which many other doctors could not, even as he worries that his wife eat a decent meal, his daughter study further beyond matriculation, and that his left eye be fitted with a prosthetic eye.
