Having successfully battled hot–water epilepsy and severe social stigma, K C Janardhan has come a long way in making a mark for himself. A well–known handwriting researcher, trainer, graphologist and calligrapher from Bangalore, Janardhan was chosen to represent India at the 8th Asian Oceanic Congress that was held in Melbourne, Australia, last month.

Janardhan was invited to speak on "Winning with Epilepsy and Calligraphy" in the Epilepsy and Society Programme, to motivate and inspire others to fight the illness and rid themselves of stigmas associated with it.

Janardhan’s presentation focused on the discovery of hot water epilepsy in the late 1960s and how doctors like K S Mani of Nimhans carried out the treatment, besides how epileptic patients are slowly being accepted by society.
