Brain tumor helped find Santhosh's hidden genius; family surprised

brain-tumor-santhosh

KOZHIKODE: Kunnamangalam native Santhosh Kumar carried two brain tumors. The doctors and health officials presaged a bedridden life for him after the surgery. Medical science had nothing good to offer, and doyens in the field predicted paralysis of all things after surgery. The surgery was conducted successfully, but Santhosh started experiencing changes in his body more like what was presaged by doctors. His legs and hands turned frail with Santhosh finally admitting to the fact that he needs to look for another earning as his old wiring job is a far shot to even try.

Santhosh was restricted to four corners of his home. The thought of earning turned him to try another creative niche to which he was a novice. Santhosh started carving wood to design handiworks. The initial stage was arduous enough and his hands barely moved to the required position. The sheer work and belief started doing their trick as work started getting easier with every day. The constant involvement and learning made the trade turn familiar to him, as precision followed.

Mobile stands, flower pots, pendulums all fit the list of Santhosh's creative genius. Mahogany and teak are the often used ones for work. His wife Sri Vidhya is fully supportive of Santhosh's new métier. The wood is polished later and is put on sale. The price for works ranges from Rs 100 to RS 3000.
