The life and soul of every party, it came as a shock to all when he was diagnosed, in course of a routine check-up. After rounds of surgery and chemotherapy, his doctors at the Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute, Delhi, and Tata Medical Centre, Kolkata, put him on a new targeted therapy: small molecule pill, Pazopanib. Despite some side effects, his cancer is now stable. “I am active and thriving,” says the man who recently took part in a neighbourhood cricket match and won a trophy.
