Pratyusha Banerjee, popularly known for her role as “Anandi” in “Balika Vadhu” was found dead in her apartment in Kandivali, Mumbai on 1st April 2016 morning. The Police and the forensic team is still investigating her death but it is being suspected as a case of a suicide. This makes us think or ponder over probable circumstances which would have led Pratyusha, a 24-year-old TV actress who had so much going for her in life, who had tasted success in such a young age. This incident has raised a very powerful question. Is suicide a solution for mental stress?
Based on the data from National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), about 1.3 lakh committed suicide in the year 2014-15.
Yes, life gets hard sometimes.
We wish there was an empathetic person that would have helped you in the time of need. But, when you don’t find a comforting shoulder, getting help from a psychiatrist will help. However, getting help from a psychologist has a lot of resistance. “I’m perfectly fine, I don’t need any doctor”. Unless we realize it’s too late.
The truth is, bottled up emotions just builds on frustration rather than doing anything good.
Celebrities become role models in our lives and the change should begin from them. Earlier celebs like Deepika Padukone, Angelina Jolie and more have taken a strong fight against depression and shown us the courage to speak up and raise their voice for this cause.
Open up. Life is precious.
