The writer is a survivor of an accident that altered his life. He is a man who managed to overcome adversity and transform bitterness into personal success, as his literary gains outweighed his physical restrictions. Where his physical condition limited his movements, his art of creative writing opened up a new horizon for him that enabled him to freely interact with his readers. This is a real-life account of how a human can overcome obstacles, giving effect to the epithet: "What does not kill me makes me stronger."
The biography defines patience in two ways: firstly, a bitter experience; and secondly, the ability to tolerate and turn one's misfortune into investment. The accident that the writer suffered has paralysed his body, however, at the same time it has unleashed his writing talents.
