Epilepsy is defined as a tendency to have recurrent and unprovoked seizures due to sudden, excessive abnormal electrical activity in the brain. The cause could either be a structural abnormality of the brain, a genetic/ metabolic/ infectious/ immune mediated disorder or unknown in 1/3rd of the cases. Irrespective of the cause, epilepsy is a condition that can be controlled effectively and with the right treatment, a majority of patients can lead near normal lives.

Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorders that can affect anyone at any age. India has about a crore and more epilepsy patients and around 14 people per 1000 population are prone to suffer from epilepsy in India with relatively higher estimates in children and young adults. This hidden disease, associated with social stigmas, is arguably a serious problem in India that needs appropriate clinical and societal intervention. Reports suggest that approximately 60% of urban population are known to consult a doctor after suffering a seizure in comparison to only 10% of the rural population.
