about

The stimulating saga of a man who, thanks to his never-say-die attitude, found the courage and the determination to bounce back despite being felled by a serious, disabling conditionWhen Vijay Santhanam was afflicted with a stroke at the age of 41, he was paralyzed on the right side of his body. He couldnt move without help and he couldnt speak at all. But he soon realized that his powers of reasoning/thought were not lost to him. And he garnered his spirit and willpower within him to work at regaining his health and faculties; a stroke wasnt going to get him down.Vijay goes on to get back to work, to write two books on one of the biggest passions of his life—cricket, a sport that was one of his greatest inspirations while in hospital and on the road to recovery, and to teach at IIM Ahmedabad and IIM Lucknow.This is the inspiring story of a man who didnt waste time bemoaning his fate; his immediate agenda was to understand what could make him healthy again and to start with, to return to the life hed known before as a regional head of marketing in a multinational company in Singapore. My Stroke of Luck: Alphabet to Author is Vijays journey through long, sometimes painful, and often frustrating, months of therapy, relearning thealphabet and learning new strengths: emotional, mental and physical.Vijays attempt is not to describe the human brain and how it works in a scientific manner but to celebrate a mans inspiring journey. He believes when a human being is confronted by a big crisis, often she/he summons all her/his spirit and willpower to fight back and win. His story is testimony and an eloquent example of it.
