Zerodha Co-founder and CEO Nithin Kamath on Monday revealed he suffered a mild stroke around six week ago, which left him wondering why a fit person like him could be affected.

In a post on X (formerly Twitter), Kamath said that anything from poor sleep and exhaustion to the passing away of his father could be the reason. "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.

Kamath said that he is on the path to recovery. "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.
