Sanduk Ruit was born into the lowest rungs of society in a tiny, remote Himalayan village in Nepal. After long and difficult treks to attend boarding school in Darjeeling and, later, the best of Indian medical colleges, he met the remarkable visionary and Australian ophthalmologist, Fred Hollows, whose invaluable mentorship would enable him to take on his lifelong mission to restore vision to the poorest of blind people across Nepal and the rest of Asia.

Despite relentless backlash from his shaken contemporaries in the global medical industry, Dr Ruit took his unmatched prowess in stitch-free cataract surgery, along with world-class medical care and equipment, to those whose lives were plunged into darkness; who were ostracized and abandoned for being blind with no access to proper treatment.

Dr Ruit is known as the 'God of Sight' for restoring the light to millions of people who have been prey to curable blindness and vicious poverty; this is his extraordinary story.

Ali Gripper has written features for more than two decades for newspapers and magazines including Good Weekend, the Sydney Morning Herald, the Australian, the Daily Telegraph, the South China Morning Post and Country Style Magazine. She worked closely with Dr Ruit for three years to write his life story.
