An Indian mother committed sicide so she could give her corneas to her blind sons, but it may have been in vain -
An Indian woman committed suicide so her two blind sons could receive her eyes and see, a newspaper reported on Monday.
But doctors say the chances of success are bleak, The Indian Express reported.
Thirty-seven-year-old Tamizhselvi's sons, Kumaran, 17, and Kumar, 15, have been blind since birth.
Doctors in the southern city of Chennai say Kumar's condition cannot be helped with a cornea transplant and also suspect his elder brother does not have a cornea defect.
Even if successful, the kids would be still short an eye, but as they say in India, "In the land of the blind, even the one-eyed man can run a call-center".
