Manohar Parrikar Passes Away, tributes pour in, National Mourning on March 18

Human mind can overcome any disease: Manohar Parrikar once said and proved

"Human mind can overcome any disease," an ailing Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar once said. And proved it every minute ever since he was diagnosed with a pancreatic ailment, cancer to be precise.

It wouldn't be an exaggeration if we say he taught the country and the world how to deal with a life-threatening disease like a boss -- by staying strong and not giving up. The power of the human mind, as he said -- he never let the disease take the better of him.

Over a month before bidding adieu to the world on late Sunday evening, Parrikar gave us a peak of his emotional journey with cancer
