Beautiful eyes # prompt 12

Mannu, a pretty girl  had very sweet eyes.Her family doted on her.One day after school, she was hit by a truck.She was rushed to the hospital, and was declared dead. Her father took a decision   to donate her eyes to  Paru, his daughter-in-law, who was stone blind. After surgery Paru reached home and wanted  to see Mannu. She was  taken to  a portrait of  Mannu. Her husband told her, "here is  Mannu"  She fell down with a shock. Mahesh  consoled her ' Mannu is not dead. She is alive in your eyes. Her sweet eyes will always live.

  15. Quite a lot of things to be happy and noble about. Even before he donated his daughter's eyes to her, the father has accepted his handicapped daughter-in-law. I don't see that acceptance of people usually. A nice story, and good that the daughter lives on, not only through memories, but through her eyes.
