Reshma Valliappan: Gutsy. Witty. Unusual. Opinionated. Determined. Fighter. Beautiful. Survivor. An artist. So what happened when Reshma was diagnosed with Schizophrenia – a mental illness believed to be caused by chemical imbalances in the head, implying an inevitable and life-long dependence on medicines? She fought. The illness, society, doctors, mainstream notions about Schizophrenia, and even her own parents. ‘A Drop of Sunshine’ chronicles Reshma’s story of survival. In doing so, it takes a controversial and contrarian position towards recovery from Schizophrenia, proposing that the only treatment method that can work in the condition is one where the so-called ‘patient’ is encouraged and empowered to become an equal partner in the process of healing. It also challenges mainstream views on the mental condition.
