"Memories are an important part of our lives. Even more so for someone who was a part of them, yet missed out, because he couldn't see," says as the description for an emotional video shared by Google India.
Amit Tiwari is an Indian man who has been blind for 15 years. He recently received a corneal transplant and was able to regain his vision.
The video captures the moments before and after Amit's operation to fix his sight, including when Amit opens his eyes after the surgery and sees his family for the first time after more than a decade.
To make up for lost years, Tiwari's family gifted him a mobile phone filled with photographs of memories he was never able to see himself.
