Ashok Rajamani

At age 25, Ashok Rajamani suffered a brain bleed, and found he had to relearn how to do almost everything, including simple things like eating, talking, and so forth. His family supported him through the event and the intervening years of a slow and difficult recovery, which continues still, ten years post-bleed. Rajamani mostly tells his story with humor and irreverence, but his recounting of his painful recovery period is moving and heartfelt. He is an inspired survivor who weaves a revelatory tale of overcoming enormous odds.
