A Dragonfly’s Purpose

Author Name: Sujata Sharma | Format: Paperback | Genre : Biographies & Autobiographies | Other Details

Life was almost perfect for Sujata Sharma, a professor in AIIMS, with every best-laid plan in place. She had been deeply involved with research and teaching, with an active family and social life, pursuing physical fitness. In just seven days, she found herself away from home, checked into a hospital, facing an uncertain future with a rare autoimmune disease, Guillain Barre Syndrome, which rendered her almost paralyzed.  The road back towards recovery was long and uphill. With the help of her doctors, family and colleagues, she started her journey from the grip of the deadly disease, which ended spectacularly with her finally winning a trophy with her departmental team in the first-ever ‘AIIMS Got talent’. In her quest towards discovering inner strength, she found her life’s purpose to be similar to a dragonfly’s purpose, which is to live fully in the moment and perform to its best ability despite the limitations that are imposed by destiny.
