Mumbai diamantaire to help Thane blind woman regain sight

Last fortnight, a Central Railway Pointsman Mayur Shelke sprinted into national headlines after he out-raced an oncoming train, Udayan Express and saved the life of a 6-year old kid from certain death on the railway tracks at Vangani station in Thane district.

Earning laurels, Shelke was felicitated by the CR, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal gave a reward of Rs 50,000, industrialist Anand Mahindra praised him while Jawa Motorcycles's Director Anupam Thareja gifted him a brand new Jawa 42 Nebula Blue bike worth around Rs 1.65-lakh.

Quietly away from the limelight, Sahil's mother Sangita Shirsath, 32, with tears of gratitude welling up her sightless eyes, blessed Shelke for giving new life to her little son and her pillar of support.

Her plight moved a Mumbai diamantaire Dharmesh Jhaveri and he decided to do something so Shirsath, hailing from Nanded, could regain her eyesight.

"I was not born blindÂ. At the age of 2, owing to some eye disease, I lost my vision permanentlyÂ. My father had shown me to an opthalmist in Nanded, but he said nothing could be done," Shirsath told IANS.
