This will be the first time that "Singh will tell, in his own words, the real story behind the 2011 World Cup when on-the-field triumph hid increasingly puzzling health problems and worrying illnesses. 'If I think of it my life is full of words beginning with C. I was born in Chandigarh, I became a cricketer, and through my decade as an international cricketer all I craved, along with the rest of the India team, was the Cup This story, though, is about the new C in my life. It is the story of my cancer'", Random House India posted on its official blog.
The cricketer will also "speak to other sufferers to help them come through the sadness, loneliness, fear and desperation of cancer" through his book.
Random House India will publish In Different Form on 12th December 2012.
