Nerves of steel
Like every other starry - eyed teenager, I had great dreams for the future.
I had just completed class 12 and was excitedly making plans about joining college. As fate would have it, an accident in the kitchen seemed to turn my dreams to ashes.
I had 50% burns on my face, neck and chest. I survived but mere survival was not that mattered to me. The journey of my restoration started when I joined college.
I underwent 16 operations in a period of 4 years - corrective surgeries, contracture releases. And finally when I graduated into a beautiful human being.
Now, married and blessed with a baby and an MNC job, I recall with gratitude the hands that worked this miracle.
