From struggle to survival – A journey through Destiny

Puthur Rahman, the man who believed in destiny, flew to UAE at the age of 22. It was not because he wished to, but because he had to. At the time when Rahman was the secretary of MSF, the government's decision to prohibit Arabic, Urdu and Sanskrit from the school curriculum brought forth protest from more than 10 thousand youth league, and MSF members undertook 'Dharna' on 31st July 1981, at the Malapurram District Collectorate. Police attacked and Rahman got shot in the process and was admitted in hospital. After 3 months when he was discharged from the hospitals, he was charged with murder of a policeman who happened to die of a heartattack during the protest. To escape from this false case and avoid getting arrested he flew to UAE. There he got a job as a mechanic in a workshop though it was a trade that he wasn't skilled in. Fortunately, by the suggestion of a friend, he decided to meet Sheikh Saleh. The meeting was to happen at a football ground adjacent to the farmhouse of the Sheikh. As it turned out, when the match was about to begin, the team which was to play against Sheikh Saleh’s team were short of a player. Rahman gladly accepted the Sheikh's invitation to play in the absent player's place. With the confidence and spirit that he imbibed from the soil of Puthur, he scored twice. But it was heartening to see the Sheikh congratulating him for his feat and encouraged him to continue the game. Post the match, while exchanging pleasantries with the Sheikh, Rahman mentioned his job and requested for another that suited his qualifications. As luck would have it, the Sheikh offered him the post of clerk cum secretary cum cleaner in a newly established shipping company, because he was a graduate in Arabic. The ladder to Dr. Rahman's growth began here. Second turning point in his life began on 24 February 2012. It is a memorable day because he considers it as a day of his second coming. It was on this day that he received an early morning call from the Kings College Hospital. He was surprised as he never expected his liver transplantation to be done so soon. His liver co-coordinator Ms. Wendy was waiting and he got prepared for the surgery. Prof. Nigel Heaton explained to him the risks of such a major surgery and fortunately they had a cadaver which was matching with his liver size perfectly. His boss at Fujairah kept him optimistic and prompted him to forget his worries. With the grace of the Almighty and the skilled hands of Prof. Heaton and Prof. O’ Grady, Rahman got a second chance to live. He considers himself extremely fortunate to have got such an expert consultation and a donor to whom he owes his life.
