Ms. Venkatesan narrates her story of fighting tuberculosis but falling prey to the side effects of its drug thereby becoming impaired of hearing. She tells us about her world of silence, her choice to not give up, learning to lip read and using dance for healing.
A communication professional and a public speaker, Ms. Nandita Venkatesan who was awarded for her courage by Zee Network, Franklin Templeton Investment, Rotary Award and Your Story, after getting severely infected by Tuberculosis twice in her lifetime in a quick succession lost 24kg, and suffered from complete hearing loss.

Even after suffering all that, she never let them come in her path and today, she is a journalist at The Economic Times, a Bharat Natyam dancer, now a TB awareness advocate and the only Indian selected to attend the Washington based ACTION.org public health advicacy training in Paris.
