‘From Ouch to Oops:just don’t give up’,is a self-help book that traverses through the choppy nodes of RamG Vallath’s life,his journey from struggle to success,his fight from the disease called CIDP(Chronic Inflamatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy) he tragically suffered from.

As the back cover says : ‘RamG Vallath has everything going for him.He has studied at IIT,seen a 200 per cent jump in his salary and become one of the youngest circle heads in India’s telecom sector.When he steps into the role of a director at a major multinational computer hardware firm,he thinks he has it made.

But life is soon about to come crashing down on him.He is diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disorder that weakens his muscles.Mundane tasks like buttoning up his shirt, climbing down steps and typing on a keyboard become extremely difficult.To make things worse, he loses his job at a time when his annual hospitalization bill has gone up to Rs. 20 lakh.

But even as the chips are down and hope starts to fade,RamG decides not to give up.He becomes the cheerleader at home and outside, spreading positivity wherever he goes and choosing to tackle his challenges head-on with a hearty ‘yoohoo’.’

The script of the author’s life is not so extra-ordinary or completely out of the box,but RamG Vallath himself made his life extra-ordinary.We all face many ups and downs in our life,but the question here arises is how many of us learn to stitch the torn and thinks positively even entouraged with negativity.That’s why RamG Vallath’s story is different,he never slowed down,he just knows one road, a road to step ahead as he never brushed any problem under the carpet and this story teaches the reader same.

A simple writing style has been used by the author and he has implemented the story very-well which is noticeable. Author’s positive attitude towards life is lucidly portrayed in this book.He has very precisely lemned various facets of his life when luck has knocked him out.

This book beyond shadow of a doubt gives a shot in arm. A real-life based story that teaches one a lot.I would like to recommend this book to everyone who wants to go high and touch the sky amidst thunderstorms.

Every story has something to speak,leaves something to learn….

Rating : 5/5
