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.
