A young basketball player's battle with leukaemia
While many celebrated the New Year with tremendous fervour and happiness around
for 23-year-old Thejangulie Mekro, it signalled the beginning of an uncertain path because
he was given the diagnosis of acute myeloid leukaemia on January
1 of this year. The news reached a star basketball
player from Nagaland who was enrolled in Visual
Communication at Chennai's Sathyabama Institute of
Science and Technology on a full sports scholarship at the time.
Mekro learned the news while he was by himself in the hospital.
Five people were imprisoned in Hong Kong for "brainwashing" kids with "seditious" books.
