Zerodha CEO Nithin Kamath Is On The Path To Recovery After Experiencing Mild Stroke

New Delhi: Zerodha’s Co-founder and CEO, Nithin Kamath, recently disclosed that he experienced a minor stroke approximately six weeks ago, leading him to question why someone as healthy as himself could be impacted.

In a post shared on X (formerly Twitter), Kamath mentioned that factors ranging from inadequate sleep and fatigue to the recent loss of his father could have contributed to the occurrence.(Also Read: Mark Zuckerberg Learns Skill Of Traditional Japanese Sword Making; Watch Video)

“Around 6 weeks ago, I had a mild stroke out of the blue. Dad passing away, poor sleep, exhaustion, dehydration, and overworking out — any of these could be possible reasons,” he posted. (Also Read: MobiKwik Unveils ‘Pocket UPI’ For Payments Without Linking Bank Account)

Kamath mentioned that he is currently recovering.

“I’ve gone from having a big droop in the face and not being able to read or write to having a slight droop but being able to read and write more. From being absent-minded to more present-minded. So, 3 to 6 months for full recovery,” the Zerodha CEO added.

He wondered why a person who’s fit and takes care of himself could be affected like this. “The doctor said you need to know when you need to shift the gears down a bit,” said Kamath, posting an image of him in the hospital.

“Slightly broken, but still getting my treadmill count,” he added.

Zerodha reported a revenue of Rs 6,875 crore and a profit at Rs 2,907 crore for the financial year 2022-23 (FY23), representing a 38.5 per cent and 39 per cent growth in revenue and profit, respectively, as compared to the previous financial year. In FY22, the company had reported revenue of Rs 4,964 crore and a profit of Rs 2,094 crore. (With Inputs From IANS)
