Irrfan Khan pens inspirational poem ahead of his treatment in UK: 'Just keep going. No feeling is final'
Irrfan Khan is being diagnosed in the UK, instead of the common assumption of him being treated in the US.
With the news of National Award winning actor Irrfan Khan being diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour out on social media, many cinephiles were left shocked and dejected. While the apprehension around his recovery remains intact, the actor took to Instagram and shared an inspirational poem.
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. 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 #rainermariarilke
