After losing the use of his hands and everything below the chest in a freak car accident, Dinesh Palipana went on to complete medical school, becoming a doctor and medical researcher. In his memoir, he shows that even the most difficult journeys can take us somewhere beautiful.

A puddle of water on a highway changed Dinesh Palipana’s life forever. Halfway through medical school, Dinesh was involved in a catastrophic car accident that caused a cervical spinal cord injury. After his accident, his strength and determination saw him return to complete medical school – now with quadriplegia. Dinesh was the first quadriplegic medical intern in Queensland, and the second person with quadriplegia to graduate medical school in Australia. Despite all of the pain and hardship he’s faced, Dinesh now sees his accident as a turning point for the better in his life. He believes it has made him a better doctor and a more sensitive, open human. He fights for equal and equitable access for disabled people, and is a compassionate and skilled doctor working in one of Australia’s busiest hospitals. Dinesh believes he is now happier, stronger and more capable than he was before the accident. It helped him to clarify what is important in his life, and taught him that happiness and strength can always be found within.
