Getting a second chance to see life is not a common thing. This is what happened to Sudhir Choudhrie, a pioneer in the business industry based in India. He is amo0ng the luckiest who survived a heart transplant and continues to be an inspiration in the community. Choudhrie is a native of India, where he was born and raised. He is a successful businessman and also philanthropist who contributes to the growth of the community.
Choudhrie was diagnosed with a leaking heart when he attained the age of eight. This condition gave him sleepless nights and peace of mind to work on other things. He did not allow this condition to ruin his ambitions and plans in life. He placed his head high and continued with his business activities, although at some point, his heart skipped a beat. In 1975, Choudhrie officially launched the Magnum Trading Company.
When Sudhir Choudhrie attained the age of fifty, his heart began failing on regular occasions. This gave him a hard time continuing with other duties and concentrated on his health. When he was traveling to the United States for his business duties, his heart failed, calling for an emergency heart transplant to save his life. He was then diverted to London, where he was taken to the Columbia University Medical Centre, where the surgery was to be undertaken.
The family of Sudhir Choudhrie was lucky to get a heart, and Dr. Mehmet Oz continued with the transplant surgery, which took more than 24hours. Later, Choudhrie got out of the operation table while still breathing and ready to face the second part of his life. His condition forced him to swallow numerous tablets and walk for some distance to remain physically fit regardless of his condition. Upon recovering from the heart complication, Sudhir Choudhrie dedicated the 5 remaining part of his life to giving back to the community, especially the Columbia University Medical Center.
