Publisher's Summary

Just when life seemed rosy and the sun was shining, Dr. Bhaskar Bora sustained a severe spinal cord injury in July 2019 following an operation, which left him with paralysis of both legs, a nonfunctioning right hand, and a long stay in the hospital, eventually leading to a forced medical retirement from his medical career and a wheelchair in place of a sports car. He had to undergo multiple operations, but is now permanently disabled. Two months after his injury, he was also diagnosed with cancer of the thyroid, for which he needed further operations.

With a family so young, he could not afford to give up yet, so he had to relearn walking (limited distance with crutches), writing, holding a knife and fork, and lots of other daily routines, but most importantly, he had to retrain his mind to accept the new normal. However, these adverse life-changing experiences made him into a person of faith, gratitude, and inspiration. 

Poorer financially but richer in experiences of life, he is now a voice for the disabled and has written the book The Second Chance in Life as an honest reflection of his life experiences to motivate people that every adversity can still be turned into an opportunity, that it is important to be filled with gratitude and appreciation for all the things that we take for granted. He also blogs on his website drbbora.com.

In The Second Chance in Life, this confessed workaholic acknowledges the challenges and miracles that have influenced his life and, in a bravely honest style, shares how even your darkest days can be a springboard for positivity. How important acceptance and resilience are in turning adversities into opportunities. This book also shows the need for appreciating every small thing in life and not to take anything for granted. With various real-life examples and practical strategies, this book is an inspirational work for self-help and motivation.

Honest, brave and inspiring

It has all been written down so honestly and courageously. An inspiration to many, not to give up on life. Whatever comes, it can still be a positive thing.
