To keep the memory of the legendary Eye Specialist of India Dr. Nihar Munshi, an eye treatment foundation has been established in Kolkata with the objective of treating eye problems and conducting eye operations of the poor and rural people free of cost.
The Foundation runs by public endowment without any financial help from the West Bengal government. The Center has already operated upon thousands of eye patients.
Captain Prabir Munshi, the son of Dr. Nihar Munshi, heads the Foundation.
Recently Capt. Munshi visited the United States to meet Indians living here and to promote the cause of the Foundation. In this interview, Capt Munshi talked about the objectives and functions of the Foundation.
