Have to go through six cycles of chemotherapy, could even die in a few months: Irrfan Khan on cancer
Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan, in a recent interview given to a news agency, said that his disease could take his life in a few months.
According to excerpts from the interview, the actor who has been diagnosed with the neuroendocrine tumor, was quoted as saying that he needs to undergo six cycles of chemotherapy as treatment.
While talking about his condition, the Karwaan actor said that the tumor can take his life in a few months, a year or two. "Being treated for this disease has made me realise that life has so much to offer. I was going around with "blinders" so far, and was clearly not able to see what it was offering me.
"Suffering from such a condition makes you realise that all the thinking, planning and noise need to stop. Life is too short to be not thankful about what all it has given you," he added.
God speaks to each of us as he makes us, then walks with us silently out of the night. These are the words we dimly hear: You, sent out beyond your recall, go to the limits of your longing. Embody me. Flare up like a flame and make big shadows I can move in. Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final. Don’t let yourself lose me. Nearby is the country they call life. You will know it by its seriousness. Give me your hand #rainermariarilke
