Bishtu has been going through a series of tests (including HIV) in TATA Main Hospital and misdiagnosis for 2 months which has left him partially paralyzed from his waist down. He was taken to Vellore in April’17 where he was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkins Lymphoma Cancer ( Hodgkins Lymphoma Cancer is a type of cancer that affects the Lymphatic system and reduces the body’s immunity to fight.any infection, and is found in fewer than one million cases a year, showing a rare status). Unfortunately his treatment in Vellore was discontinued due to lack of funds.
With little funds left with them, they again had to admit Bishtu in TATA Main Hospital. He has gone through 4 chemotherapies and needs further immunotherapy sessions.
Bishtu’s ideas about life was simple.
He was a dreamer.
After completing his 12th from Loyola Jamshedpur, he pursued his further studies from XITE. Not very excited about studies (also getting average grades), he would always expect something out of the box. One could sense his ambitions roughly looking at the the things he was passionate about. Had he pursued his passion, we could have expected a leading travel blogger, a biker, a footballer on the front or an entrepreneur (of a rose industry, maybe).
He, always lived each moment of the day more than anyone.
His black and orange bike was his life, loved football more than anyone else, his Instagram page/account would be filled with travel pictures.
Today he is on the examination bed of the oncology department, still struggling and trying to live life his way with a beating heart. Everyone remembers him as a strong muscular athelete with a strong track record. Seeing him bedridden as shaken everyone and his strong voice and his spirit to recover has given us hopes and courage to fight along with him.
