When I look back, it was May-2018 when I received the call for the gift of life. Before being taken to the OT, I looked back to my father and wife and said to be chilled out and I would be back again from the OT.
I will forever remain indebted to Dr KR Balakrishnan, Dr Suresh Rao and his team, Dr Ravi and the doctors and the support staff of Fortis Malar Hospital, Chennai for giving me a second lease of life. May God bless them to save many more and bring joy.
