Nandu wins hearts by his song, after chemo and amputation
I owe my life to your prayers. Now I dedicate my life to the society. I haven’t forgotten anyone who supported and encourage me by cutting their hair and offering vows and those who offered ‘archanas’ in temples, who lighted oil lamps regularly without fail daily and those who included me in their daily prayers. I haven’t forgotten anyone.
I directly went from chemo ward to the studio to record this song. It took so much pain and trouble in breathing while singing. Anyone who has undergone the chemotherapy can feel the depth of pain I underwent. Stay with me always. I dedicate this song to all of you.
This is what Nandu shared in Facebook along with a video of his song.
His Facebook friends, who always stayed beside him, supported his song unconditionally making it reach over a million views.
Nandu, a free bird among his friends, fell into the depths of cancer last year. His left leg was amputated. However, he is not ready to give up to this deadly disease. Nandu is fighting against his fate by reading books and singing songs. Anyway, he is determined to take his ill-fated life forward happily. This young man is known to many as he is active in Facebook. This youngster gives enormous amount of inspiration to everyone.
Like actor Innocent, this brave young man also fought cancer with grit and determination. Witnessing his courage, a circle of friends has come up declaring their support for him, by cutting hair, prayers and promoting his songs.
Nandu Mahadeva, (24) is a native of Attingal, Thiruvananthapuram. Last year while playing cricket with friends in the evening, he experienced a pain on the left knee which was later diagnosed as cancer. Though his left leg is amputated, Nandu told doctors that he doesn’t need two legs to see the world. His courageous words was uttered out of sheer mind strength.
To those who think they are stuck within the four walls after any deadly disease, Nandu is an inspiration. For those who think it as a curse, "life is only one. Live that with full happiness till death. Satisfaction in life comes then. So I'm dedicating my life to such people." Nandu posted these inspirational words before posting his video in Facebook.
"It was my second life after fighting the deadly cancer and this happened only because of my mental power and prayers. Let me be an inspiration to those who fell into the depths of such fatal illness from their joyous and enjoyable lives."
