India, March 30: On World Bipolar Day, an organisation called Bipolar India celebrated the event by raising awareness about the condition and sharing latest development about the treatment and diagnosis of the condition. The event was attended by health experts as well as patients all who shared their experience of dealing with the condition.

The initiative was taken forward by Vijay Nallawala, whose Bipolar India knits the community together to aid people with the condition and raise awareness about the same.


On the occasion of World Bipolar Day, Nallawala also introduced a new platform which will help the bipolar disorder patient to earn money. The online website, which will be created by Nallawala, will help the Bipolar patients to get a freelance job of their choice and will also help them to showcase their talent.

Nallawala said, “I have experienced myself how the career of Bipolar disorder person suffers. Many patients even now are struggling to balance their career while they are suffering from this disorder. The trust issues between the person who is hiring and the Bipolar person tends to suffers. So to help them earn their livelihood, an online platform will be created which will be like a demand and supply platform. On freelance basis, people can hire the Bipolar person to do a particular job and on the other side the Bipolar person can choose what job he or she will like to do. Through this they can also showcase their talent like playing guitar, writing, making jiggles, photography, dancing, singing, any other talent which the person has and can earn money by using their talent.”

World Bipolar Day celebrated on the birth anniversary of artist Vincent Van Gogh, who was posthumously diagnosed with the disorder, is celebrated on March 30. The disorder runs in families and leads to unusual mood shifts.

According to Nallawala, the internet has played a major role to raise awareness about the disorder in the country.

Around 15 million people in the country are suffering from the Bipolar Disorder. But it has not been spoken out in public at large.

“The social media has helped people to come together and communicate with each other about the issue. In India not many people come forward to talk about it. When I started with the Bipolar India, I majorly got responses from the developed countries. But after reading about the blogs, soon many people from India got in touch to share their experiences, talk about the issues they suffer. This is the first time we are celebrating World Bipolar Day to raise awareness about the issue and give a simple solution to one of the issue the Bipolar person suffers,” said, Nallawala.

What is the best way to save Goa from deforestation?

What is the best way to save Goa from deforestation?

Drinking feni, may well be the answer, says the secretary of the Goa Cashew Feni Distillers and Bottlers Association Hansel Vaz, who on Thursday said, that sipping the state's unique alcoholic drink and making it popular would directly aid the greening of Goa's hills and other barren landscapes.

"To get more cashews, we need to plant more trees. I always say, by drinking feni you will save Goa, because we will be planting more cashew trees and we will have greener hills. The beauty of cashew is you do not need fertile land. You can grow it on a hill which can provide no nutrition. We will be able to grow more trees, if we can sell feni properly," Vaz said. Vaz's comments come at a time when the hillsides of the coastal state have witnessed significant deforestation for real estate development and for infrastructure projects. Feni is manufactured by fermenting and double distilling juice from the cashew apple.

With the advent of technology, privacy and age-related limitations have been done away with. Almost anything is available on the internet in abundance. For those sites where a paywall or a subscription is required, it takes just a few clicks to find loopholes in the workings of the dark web, to manipulate the settings, and to become a full-time user. Similarly, digitisation of almost every industry has allowed access to worlds previously not openly accessible to just anyone. The partakers of this new world, not surprisingly, are children and youth, armed with curiosity and the impeccable ability to navigate the online world with ease.

Unconventional career choices might be challenging at first, however, the benefits associated with these are promising. Today's job opportunities are the ones that didn't exist a few years ago. Similarly, the pace of technological evolution would continue to generate millions of new jobs in the future that we can't think of today. Equipping oneself with relevant, unique, evolving, and out-of-the-box skills, is thus, an important aspect for young graduates aiming to start their own business or land a secure job. As parents, education institutions, and the government are now motivating the youngsters to walk an extra mile, think of new ideas, and explore new career routes, students have gathered the confidence and courage to pursue their interests.
