He recounts, “It was the August of 2013. I was 28 years old and had been doing very well with work where I had just quit HCL Technologies to join Society Generale – A French Investment Bank in Bangalore. I had also just tied the knot with my childhood sweetheart. We had moved into a new house and were setting it up.
I used to cycle to office (Bangalore is the one city in India where you can do so), was a badminton fanatic and used to play for hours post work. At that time I was keen to buy my first car and also was making big plans to go to Andamans with my wife and parents before my father would retire from the Army. I was just getting started.
But then I just fell sick one fine day. It started with a minor cough and cold. Health got worse and I was then suspected and treated for dengue and eventually diagnosed with Cancer.
On 23rd of August 2013 I was told that I have Multiple Myeloma, a rare form of Blood Cancer. So from Cool dude to a Cancer dud in 10 days flat.”
“This was a shocker for all. Everything came to standstill,” - says Rahul
