1. In Praise of God
On this auspicious day of Ganesh Chaturthi my wishes and prayers for all of you. May Ganesha bring love, joy and prosperity in your lives and give you all the strength to be positive in life.
Today morning we brought Ganesha to Adityajyot with all fanfare and rituals as we set up our pandal for this Ganesh Utsav based on the noble theme of eye donation. The heavy rains could not dampen our spirits as we held a Puja attended by all my staff, family and friends seeking the blessings of Ganesha. We plan to hold special prayers everyday till Sep 2nd invoking the God almighty to shower his blessings upon us.
This is the first time we have set up a Ganesh Pandal at Adityajyot and it is but a small gesture to thank him and a chance for us to serve him during this holy period. I also hope to promote eye donation on this occassion and inspire people with the Kannpan Nayanar story to come forward and pledge their eyes.
Today is a day marked by an amazing confluence of faiths as today also marks the beginning of the holy month of Ramzan......My best wishes to all.........

EYE DONATION IN HINDU MYTHOLOGY
EYE DONATION IN HINDU MYTHOLOGY
OUR BACKDROP FOR THIS YEAR DEPICTS VERY GRAPHICALLY THE STORY OF KANNAPA NAYANAR WHO WAS A STAUNCH DEVOTEE OF LORD SHIVA .
THIS COLOURFUL DEPICTION HAS BEEN CREATED BY TWO YOUNG ARTISTS FROM JJ SCHOOL OF ART WHO SPENT LONG HOURS AND SLEEPLESS NIGHTS CREATING THIS MASTER PIECE.
THINNAN , DHEERAN MORE FAMOUSLY KNOWN AS KANNAPA NAYANAR WAS ONE OF THE 63 SAINTS WHO WORSHIPPED LORD SHIVA.HE FOUND THE VAYU LINGA IN THE FOREST WHILST HE WAS HUNTING.SINCE HE WAS ILLETERATE AND FROM A LOW CASTE HE DID NOT KNOW HOW TO WORSHIP LORD SHIVA.
THE STORY GOES THAT HE BROUGHT WATER IN HIS MOUTH FROM A NEARBY RIVER AND POURED IT OVER THE SHIVA LINGAM.HE ALSO OFFERED WHATEVER ANIMAL HE HUNTED. SHIVA ACCEPTED IT AS HE KNEW THINNAN WAS PURE AT HEARTS AND HIS DEVOTION WAS TRUE
ONE DAY LORD SHIVA WABTED TO TEST THE DEVOTION OF THINNAN.HE CAUSED AN EARTHQUAKE AND THE TREMORS CAUSED THE ROOF TOPS OF THE TEMPLE TO FALL.ALL THE SAGES RAN AWAY EXCEPT THINNAN WHO COVERED THE LINGA WITH HIS BODY TO PREVENT DAMAGE.HENCE HE WAS NAMED DHEERAN
ONE DAY THINNAN ALSO KNOWN AS DHEERAN NOTICED THAT ONE OF THE EYES OF THE SHIVA LINGA WAS OZZING BLOOD AND TEARS.SENSING THAT THE LORD’S EYE WAS INJURED DHEERAN PLUCKED OUT ONE OF HIS EYES WITH HIS ARROW AND PLACED IT ON THE BLEEDING EYE AND LO AND BEHOLD LORD SHIVA’S EYE STOPPED BLEEDING.BUT THE TRAUMA WAS NOT OVER YET AS DHEERAN SAW TO HIS HORROR THAT LORD SHIVA’S OTHER EYE ALSO STARTED BLEEDING.DHEERAN THOUGHT THAT IF HE WERE TO PLUCK HIS OTHER EYE TOO HE WOULD TURN BLIND AND NOT KNOW WHERE TO PLACE THE OTHER EYE.SO HE CLEVERLY PLACED HIS GREAT BIG TOE ON THE LINGA TO MARK THE SPOT OF THE BLEEDING SECOND EYE AND BEGAN TO PLUCK OUT HIS ONLY OTHER EYE.
SHIVA WAS GREATLY MOVED BY THIS DEVOTION AND CRIED OUT”NILLU KANAPPA’STOP KANNAPA AND RESTORED BOTH HIS EYES.
YOU WILL SEE THIS MOVING STORY SO VIVIDLY PAINTED IN TYPICAL TANJORE ART FORM AND COLOURS BY THE YOUNG ARTISTS
ADITYA JYOT’S MISSION IS TO RESTORE EYESIGHT,VISION AND PLAY ITS HUMBLE PART IN REDUCING BLINDNESS AND IMPROVING EYE CARE IN THIS COUNTRY.
IT ALSO PROMOTES EYE DONATION.OUR SLOGAN ‘DON’T BURY,DON’T BURN,DONATE YOUR EYES’HAS HAD SEVERAL THOUSANDS PLEDGE THEIR EYES FOR POSTERITY
LETS HOLD HANDS THEREFORE AND VENERATE LORD GANESHA THAT HE BLESSES US TO FULFILL OUR DREAMS OF PROVIDING SIGHT TO ALL THOSE WHO NEED IT.

I Dr.S.Natarajan was proud to have this oath administered to me by Dr.A.P.J. Abdul Kalam and i will endeavor to have this oath taken by each and every ophthalmologists in our country.
I, as an eye care professional realize by removing darkness and giving light to the patient is indeed God's mission.
Based on the experience and my core competence as a Doctor, I am capable of diagnosing the exact disease at right time.
I will not allow the patient to go through the diagnostics pain by making them to undergo all type of diagnostics tests for which is it is not needed.
I will treat at least 100 rural patients in a year by going to rural areas and arrange cataract operations.
I will encourage the development of quality indigenous equipments and consumables by making use of them and assisting in enhancing the quality and reliability of the products.
I will follow the motto "Let my brain remove the pain of the suffering humanity and bring smiles".
I will always give part of my time for treating patients who cannot afford. I will work for providing quality eye-care to all the needy citizens of India within the next 3 years.
