What a year this has been.
When I woke up, I was in the ICU. My parents were showing me videos from friends who couldn't come to see me. Half of my body was fractured and mutilated, my left arm paralysed, but more than any of that I was heartbroken, because the person I loved the most had betrayed me.I had no idea how I ended up there and to this date I've no memory of the accident or the days leading up to it (1st Jan 3:00 AM). IT WAS A NIGHTMARE.
I saw my parents cry, I saw my friends holding back their tears, all of my extended family came to visit me, it was clear I was not going to survive, but deep down I knew I was going to make it through.
I did a lot of physiotherapy, gradually even started walking, I was pretty confident my shoulder would regain its function back, but the MRI report revealed that I had complete root avulsion of c5 - c6 which is like the worst nerve injury possible because it cannot spontaneously heal. I had a massive surgery in Jaipur. My arm was strapped to my body for over a month.
I made new friends in Lucknow, met a ton of really creative, talented people. 'Aao Kabhi Haveli Pe' Gigs were really fun Charu House Gigs were way better.
I released my first single on Spotify this year, and then I released one more, uske bad 1 aur.
I rejoined GMI ❤️ Met all of my amazing friends! I was so so so so happy to see them all, I missed GMI so much. It was such an emotional moment for me. Met so many new people- incredible musicians, incredible human beings.
And to top it all off, GMI got me a Sofar Gig ❤️ I always wanted to play at Sofar someday, performing at Sofar in 2019 wasn't something I or my doctors could imagine happening.
2019 has been such a weird year. I've learnt so much, I've had some really crazy experiences for example I know now what adult diapers feel like 🤮 or how to taste food when you have nasogastric intubation(hint: you just need to burp) or ICU psychosis! But now I have some killer content 😎😎😎😎
I am still recovering, I still need physiotherapy, but I'm ready to resume my normal life.
