Emotion is truly a universal language. There’s no better example than the case of Roshan Theeng, a 13-year-old boy, lost his eyesight 3 years ago.
The video shows the boy running his hands over the surgeon’s face. The surgeon was also overwhelmed as he took off his glasses to hug the boy.
Roshan Thing, 13, can't hold himself back after being able to see the world again.
He pours all his love on Dr Sanduk Ruit, who used his magic to give the boy eyesight. 😘
I was really praying for him, and I was really happy to capture this moment. pic.twitter.com/3fv2Q86EDu

Both of Roshan’s pupils were affected by cataract. Eventually he started losing his eyesight and went completely blind. He was not capable to walk by himself so his grandmother took him to a free eye camp on her back. This was the camp where he met Dr. Sanduk Ruit.
After the surgery, Roshan was ecstatic when he could see again. He clapped and could not stop laughing. Dr. Ruit is the famous surgeon who invented a ‘revolutionary, inexpensive method of cataract surgery that could be completed in just 15 minutes.’
Netizens couldn’t help but cheer for the little teenage boy, because the emotions in the now-viral video are just too much to contain.
Isn’t this what we live for? 💓

Dr. Ruit reported to The Kathmandu Post that,
“The boy’s expression of happiness was so strong that it was not just I who felt its effects, but everyone around, all the patients and their relatives.”
The happiness on the boy’s face depicts what he feels inside, and if there’s someone to be thankful for that, it’s Dr. Sanduk Ruit, and his noble efforts to change lives of people like Roshan Theeng.
