A Note from the Author…

This book describes how accidentally at the age of 25, during a routine checkup I discover that I suffer from a near fatal disease without a cure. How it affects me mentally to know that I may not live long. How I choose to initially live in denial but then fight it out, making some avoidable mistakes on the way. Eventually in spite of a near death situation, I do conquer the disease to get back to a normal life with good health by the age of 39. The book traverses my journey in these fateful 14 years, where I did not let the disease affect my career or daily life. It talks about my trials and tribulations and the highs and the lows in my fight for life

  3. My Journey from a Fatal Disease to Good Health: Fight for Life, the author’s personal journey in his own words, is overwhelming and inspiring at the same time. The autobiography beautifully captures his different reactions and emotional turmoil after hearing of the life threatening disease. His initial period of denial and how he tries to cover it up with work and doing different things; trying different alternative therapies to find solace in difficult times; then acceptance of the condition; the treatment stage and finally leading a near to normal life are all written about in detail in the different chapters. The book can certainly motivate people who encounter terminal diseases or face near to death situations. It will help them deal with their difficult circumstances and live life to the fullest. I admire Shantanu’s grit and how he overcame all the challenges by fighting it out.


  4. I just got your book yesterday and have finished it already. I just couldn’t put it down! I knew the result but it was the journey that you took that interested me. I am in end stage kidney failure and found your story very encouraging. You also shared your sister’s experience which shows me that not everyone will be the same. I think it you are very brave and it is refreshing to hear such honest sharing from a male. Thank you so much. I will share the name of your book with other patients and family members.

  6. The experience of reading ‘Fight for Life’ was like a transition from agony to triumph. Written in a simple, colloquial, conversational style, it becomes difficult to put down. The author has expressed even the most difficult emotional experiences in an easy communicative manner.
    The author’s journey in the book from denial to acceptance and then finally the fight for his life, holds the readers attention till the end. The positive mental strength of the author is evident in the narrative as there has been no cynical, contemptuous expressions even in the most challenging situations. The book is very inspirational as it exemplifies the triumph of the human spirit.

  7. Fight for life : A very inspirational book for everyone stating that life can be really difficult sometime with no light ahead but then one should keep the positivity high that he can achieve anything. I specially thank the author to pen down his experience as it will really help the drastically increasing number of patients of this fatal disease who really lose hope after so many dialysis sessions. A salute to the fighters and survivors. All the best to everyone fighting with their own struggles in life.
