Mr Nilakanta Siva’s initial education was in Delhi, and the final years in school were in Mumbai. After graduating with Physics and Mathematics, he went to IIT, Chennai, for post-graduate studies. He started working with the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre’s Nuclear Physics Division.  His command of the English language was responsible for him being nominated to lead the public awareness programs and to collate media relations in highlighting the benefits of atomic energy in addition to his assigned research. Mr Nilakanta Siva, who espoused nuclear physics, as he loves to call his profession as a nuclear physicist, comes across as a very optimistic and successful cancer conqueror with no inhibitions in ascribing his bladder cancer to the misdemeanours of salad days.

Both he and his wife, Rajalakshmi Siva, have dedicated themselves to the task of spreading awareness of life after cancer and reiterating that cancer entertains no mercy petitions. They have two dozen publications to their credit. Their expressions are profound enough to make the readers think logically. The style of their writing is commendable.  He insists that the conversion of “you cancer” into “you can, sir” aided by women was what outsmarted the crawling crab.
