Like 'The curious case of Benjamin Button' where an elderly manages in reverse, Koushik's journey revolves around how he grew his hair back after suffering from Alopecia Areata (an autoimmune disease). Exhausted after consulting almost every good doctor in the town & trying all possible treatments from homoeopathy to Ayurveda, the results were still frightening. It was after his extensive reading on the link between the gut and related diseases and trusting his instinct to eliminate certain foods from his diet, that helped him in growing his hair back. The walk has been painful. Struggling with ADHD disorder, to being bullied by peers & outsiders for being bald and enduring the side effects of treatments, he had lost hope. The walk has also been enlightening. He found his strength in football and support in family & friends.
"I'M AMUSED TO SAY I HAVE LIVED THROUGH THIS JOURNEY WHICH HAS TAUGHT ME TO BE STRONG, VULNERABLE, EMPATHETIC AND SPREAD POSITIVITY BY GIVING HOPE TO OTHERS"
