"Life is under no obligation to give what we expect," Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan quoted Margarette Michelle to discuss his "rare disease" with the fans. The words expressed here clearly suggest how Irrfan wanted to use poise and poetry (Read: Philosophy) to convey his  ailment. It's not a new phenomenon. When jolted by the shock or surprises of life one pauses and reflects, poetry or philosophy is a natural consequence that follow. Irrfan is no different.

So we were not surprised when the talent extraordinaire posted yet another mysterious text.  "God speaks to each of us as he makes us, then walks with us silently out of the night. These are the words we dimly hear: You, sent out beyond your recall, go to the limits of your longing. Embody me. Flare up like a flame and make big shadows I can move in. Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror." writes Irrfan.

He further added"Just keep going. No feeling is final. Don’t let yourself lose me. Nearby is the country they call life. You will know it by its seriousness. Give me your hand," Irrfan wrote, quoting Book of Hours, I 59 by Austrian poet Rainer Maria Rilke.


Remember how beautifully he had revealed his condition and managed to seek wishes and blessings by posting this emotional  text.  “The unexpected makes us grow, which is what the past few days have been about. Learning that I have been diagnosed with NeuroEndocrine Tumour as of now has admittedly been difficult, but the love and strength of those around me and that I found within me has brought me to a place of hope. The journey of this is taking me out of the country, and I request everyone to continue sending their wishes. As for the rumours that were floated NEURO is not always about the brain and googling is the easiest way to do research. To those who waited for my words, I hope to be back with more stories to tell.”

It is learnt that Irrfan's condition is perfectly treatable and there's no immediate danger to his life as of now. We wish the super talented actor a speedy recovery.
