Sakib Gore

The desire for name, fame and game is the motivating factor for most people to do their best. But there are those who want to work for the satisfaction they derive from it and even pay out of their pocket to accomplish it. Sakib Gore, a resident of Badlapurgaon is one such. For 26 years, he has helped the partially blind and those on the verge of losing their sight.

Known as ‘Drushti Doot’ (giver of sight), he was recently honored with the Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Samaj Bhushan award by the social justice ministry, the highest award given by the state government to those working for the upliftment of the oppressed and depressed classes of society.

Lakhs of tribals, Dalits and economically backward classes are able to see only because Sakib persuaded them to undergo cataract surgery as their vision was impaired and helped restore their sight. For Sakib, seeing the joy on the face of one who can see is more important than any award.

100 Days of COVID-19 Relief

My Continues work Of providing free Eyecare was Halted due to The Announcement of Our Hon. Prime minister for Lockdown which was due to the Raging Crises of the COVID 19 pandemic. I was noticed by the Civil Surgeon, Thane that ongoing cataract camps and Future eye care camps should be Immediately Suspended. Emergency Lockdown paralyzed transportation, Small scale Business, and Factories, etc. Basically the world came to a standstill. this led to unimaginable pain and suffering to the Daily wage workers, Farmers, Adivasi, and low income Citizens our country. This National Crises now increased my responsibility to help them tenfold times.

"In Pursuit of light"

“However, the man had enjoyed life, had seen the world and hence he was not ready to leave our beautiful earth. That day, for the first time I understood the importance of light. This had an impact on my life and ever since, I have worked for blind and semi-blind people,”
