Web Guitar Star Ripu Bhatia On Life After Limb Loss

Ripu Bhatia

(TeamRock) Musician Ripu Bhatia discusses life after contracting meningococcal septicaemia last year which resulted in him losing four limbs in a new video documentary.

The 22-year-old New Zealander made headlines earlier this summer after he shared a number of videos of himself playing guitar and piano. In documentary Being Me: Ripu, he describes the harrowing moment he discovered he'd contracted severe blood poisoning - and how he has been rebuilding his life following amputation.

He says: "Growing up, I was always quite shy and reserved. I used to be really into music, play a lot of guitar, and I used to write songs and lyrics - which led me to study journalism."

When he was 20, Ripu moved to Sydney, Australia, to study a Master's degree - but his life was turned on its head a year later when he visited doctors after feeling "excruciatingly cold, very intense pain" in his feet. Read more and watch the documentary here.
