Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam's Tribute
Whenever I visited Madurai, for me it was a pilgrimage to visit the Aravind Eye Hospital and meet the great soul, Dr G. Venkataswamy (Dr. G. V), who gave light for more than 100,000 patients. During the past 30 years the Aravind Eye hospital has produced the best doctors, nurses and other paramedical staff under the able guidance of Dr. G. V. The divine services of Dr. G. V were indeed the a fulfillment of God's mission for a man with be freedom of choice and with on a, as though he was the maker and moulder of himself.
