Khushi – Short Film to Promote Eye Donation
Film Name: Khushi
Director: Devrat Mishra ‘Tuli’
Year of Production: 2011
There are lots of moments in one’s life which he/she thinks remind later on during the life-span and smiles even just for a minute. There are people around us who try to smile or get happy but are unable to do so, as they are depressed of something very important in their life which forces them not to smile, but to get sad. They spend their entire life just to achieve that one happiness for themselves. Vijay and Manisha, the characters of the story, found something like that when they got a child. But how much time their happiness lasts is shown in the film. Devrat Mishra did his best in preparing the film demonstrating the good effects of eye-donation.

Drishti Creative Contest (http://drishti.org.in)
Every year antardrishti under the name “Drishti”, organise creative contest to promote eye donation in four category (Short Films, Posters, Design, and Audio Jingles).
Antardrishti – a social development organisation is committed to the cause of blind people in our society. Towards this we had made a humble beginning in 2006. It is registered as a Public Charitable Trust under Indian Trust Act, 1882. In our country, after the so long time after Independence still people are suffering from blindness due to lack of proper information and treatment. In similar way the person who becomes blind or losses his eyesight is not able to connect himself with the main stream of society due to lack of proper information and encouragement. Antardrishti stand with #Eye Care, #Eye Donation and Empowerment of #Visually Impaired.
Need of the hour is to raise awareness level of the society towards eye care, eye donation and empowerment of blind people.
