Learning to live while you feel like you’re dying is an extraordinary feat and one that Omita can help others accomplish with her story. Today’s podcast is a celebration of life and we would like to thank our guest as we discuss dealing with cancer.
Cancer is the uncontrolled development of cells in a specific part of the body. These cancerous cells can invade and destroy surrounding healthy tissue, including the organs. In the UK, someone is diagnosed with cancer every two minutes and about 165,000 people die from it every year.
Surviving cancer is anything but easy. Doing it once maybe the toughest thing you ever do but for those who have done it more than once, it doesn’t get easier.
In this episode, Rajan stays in the UK and talks to Omita as part of the Fighters Season. Omita is a three-time cancer survivor who shared her innermost vulnerable moments via video with Rajan in the two-week run up to her surgery. This is a recording of Omita post-surgery and a reflection of this journey.

Story of Omita: Yes this does need a backlog. Omita reached out to me as do many of our guests in show of support for our show. Whilst speaking on the phone she received life shattering news that she had been diagnosed with Cancer for the 3rd time. Being a single parent and in emotional turmoil we hatched a plan to speak every day for 2 weeks to record the last two weeks of her life and her emotions. At the time, we did not know whether we recording her true last words and thankfully, she pulled through.
About the Global Indian Series:
Rajan Nazran is the chief chief explorer for the Global Indian Series, the official platform for people of Indian origin (PIO), because let’s face it, we are everywhere!
For almost 15 years we have travelled across the globe covering 58 countries to date whilst exploring the kaleidoscope of our remarkable global community.
Voyaging to the edges of the Amazon, facing Ebola in West Africa, being held hostage in Eastern Europe, tapping rubber in Malaysia, drinking chai with Heads of State and sharing laughter with local fishermen – I have been there, looking for us!
Our purpose is simple, to build a living encyclopaedia of the community and a safe mooring ground for open discussions, whether you are an NRI, Indian Diaspora, person of Indian origin (PIO) or a fan of South Asian anthropology, what we do is bring people and communities together.
We do this by plunging into the human experience of being a person of Indian origin (PIO), taking a second look at the countries we now call home and tackling the conversations we need to know more about.
Through our range of award-winning original content (print, podcasts, events and TV) and fascinating discussions, our impactful stories and platforms have spearheaded national and international conversations that have brought people together.
Our work is featured in global brands including The Indian Express, OWM, Manager, ABC and many more.
