Life Is A Leaky Bucket (paperback)

by Zarin Steven-Johan

Zarin Steven-JohanZarin's biography tells the story of how she has battled through a difficult life and illness and then emerged with the determination and courage to live a full life.

She recalls how she was born into a blue-blood family in India and was accustomed to a lavish lifestyle. But the India-Pakistan war threw her family into poverty and she had to adapt. Later on in life she had to endure scornings from her mother and betrayal by her brother. At the age of 43 she was diagnosed with a genetic blood disorder. Her life is now shadowed by the risk of life-threatening blood clots.

Zarin's struggle is more than a tale of one remarkable woman's survival of personal medical crisis. It is an inspiring call to each of us to re-examine our own lives and to have the courage to make the changes where they really matter.

Zarin's inspiring message is that "no matter how down you are, remember there is still something that can be done."
