How would you feel if, one day, you wake up in a hospital to the faces
of doctors and nurses? How would you react when you see your dreams shattering
right in front of your eyes? And what would go through your mind when you’re
barred from pursuing your passion? Crushed and devastated from within? Meet Lt.
Siddhant, an epitome of courage and spirit, who woke up to all this one morning
and yet remained composed, when told that his right arm has been amputated post
a fateful accident. An average human would collapse, but Lt. Siddhant, an
Indian Army officer asked, “Can I have a Chocolate Milkshake?”
This is the true-story of Lt. Siddhant, who when asked to shed his Olive
Greens thereafter, goes on to build a successful career in the corporate world
and becomes an inspiration for many. But, how did he get there? How did he win
his battle? "Can I have a Chocolate Milkshake?"
is a riveting tale of a man overcoming his limitations, fighting against all
odds, and emerging as a winner.
