Millions of hearts broke yesterday when the tragic news came in. A young, talented, self-made actor took his own life. He was just 34 years old with a fascinating career waiting ahead of him. He was not more than 15 films old, yet was considered as one of the best talents in the Hindi film industry.

On 14th June, actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found hanging in his Bandra residence by his domestic help. The actor was reportedly battling depression from the past few months and was seeking treatment for the same.

The news of the demise of this young talented actor shocked the nation. Bollywood celebrities poured their condolences through their social media handles. This incident has popped up several questions and struck many controversies.

Rajput was born in Patna, Bihar. He pursued engineering but dropped out of it in the 3rd year to give all his time to dance and acting. His acting journey began from television as he auditioned and landed the role of Preet Juneja in Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil. After that, he went on to work in many other TV serials. His most notable role is of Manav Deshmukh in Pavitra Rishta.

In 2013, Rajput auditioned and got selected for one of the main lead roles in the movie Kai Po Che, which was his debut film. Since then there was no looking back as Rajput delivered several back to back super hit performances. His work was praised by all.

Sushant was always seen as a charming and happy person on screen. His interviews gave positive vibes and inspired many others who wanted to be an actor. But “How can such a happy and positive person kill himself?” This is a question that’s in everyone’s mind right now.

Since the demise of the actor, awareness of mental health is being spread on social media. Some people are saying that suicide is not an option and some people are saying that suicide is a cowardly act. A constant debate on social media is going on.

Addressing the same I would like to bring up an unpopular opinion that suicide is not a cowardly act. Killing yourself and taking your own life requires the highest amount of guts. When you’re an actor, you have fame, you have the love from thousands of people, you have luxuries and whatnot but all of this does not and can not give you mental peace. He had built himself a life he always wanted to live, the life of an actor, a star. He had earned it from his talent and hard work. Do you think it was easy for him to shatter it all at once?

For once, can we imagine the amount of pain and suffering he must be going through before taking such a drastic step? This incident was not a cowardly act but a lesson for us all.

It was all about his mental health. Ending a life you’ve dreamt to live is not easy after all. There must’ve been so much within him, which the society couldn’t see. There must’ve been so much that he wanted to say, but not many cared to listen. Sushant Singh Rajput was not an immature teenager if you still want to blame him. He was a very bright man with many intellectual records to his name. He was neither weak nor immature. It was his mental health which made him take this tragic step. Being a man of such intelligence, he must’ve thought about the consequences and if he still chose to take this step, then he was going through something very hard.

And this is not the first suicide case that took place because of mental health issues. Every 40 seconds, a person dies of suicide in the world. This incident has just brought light to an issue that needed to be addressed.

People need to be kind to others and stop blaming people who take such steps. After all, we don’t know their side of the story and what exactly is going in their mind. Taking care and checking up on your loved ones is the first thing we need to start with.

Talking about the star who left us yesterday, the guy who didn’t let any of us feel what he was going through in any of his off-screen clips, shows how brilliant actor he was. Clearly, he was acting in all those interviews, showing us his happy face and that smile to die for. Let’s hope he is in a better place now and may his soul Rest In Peace. May God give his family and friends all the strength in this world. Once again, a star leaves us. Looks like god is making some film with very difficult roles, and hence is calling the most talented actors up there.

Upcoming medical colleges in Uttar Pradesh will be named after saints and sages

The new medical colleges being opened in Uttar Pradesh will be named after saints and sages.

The state government has issued an order naming four district hospitals that are being converted into medical colleges.

These district hospitals are in Bijnor, Fatehpur, Chandauli, and Siddharth Nagar.

The Bijnor medical college has been named after Mahatma Vidur, a philosopher during the Mahabharata era and uncle of the Pandavas and Kauravas.

The Chandauli medical college has been named after Baba Keenaram, said to be the founder of the Aghori sect.

The Siddharth Nagar district hospital will be called Madhav Prasad Tripathi Medical College after the BJP politician from the region. Tripathi, popularly known as Madhav Babu, was also the first Uttar Pradesh BJP chief. He was elected MP from Domariyaganj in 1977, besides being two times Jan Sangh MLA and also a member of the UP legislative council.

The Fatehpur hospital has been named Amar Shaheed Jodha Singh Ataiya Thakur Dariyawn Singh Medical College, after the freedom fighter of 1857.

It is said that he was among the first to use Guerrilla warfare against the British, as taught by freedom fighter Tatya Tope.

Meanwhile, according to official sources, the medical college in Deoria will be named after Maharishi Devraha Baba and the medical college of Ghazipur in the name of Maharishi Vishwamitra.

Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has picked India as the favourite to win the ongoing ICC Men's T20 World Cup in Oman and United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Inzamam feels that the Virat Kohli-led India have a greater chance of winning the trophy as the conditions in the Gulf nations are similar to the subcontinent, which makes India the most dangerous side in the event, according to Inzamam.

"In any tournament, it cannot be said for certain that a particular team will win' It's all about how much chance do they have of winning it. In my opinion, India have a greater chance than any other team of winning this tournament, especially in conditions like these. They have experienced T20 players as well," said Inzamam on his YouTube channel.

He said more than the Indian batters, the bowlers have a lot of experience of playing in the conditions. The Indian Premier League (IPL) was played recently in UAE and most of the Indian bowlers did well in that leg.

Inzy heaped praises on the Men in Blue for the confident manner in which they chased the target against Australia on a challenging track without needing Kohli's batting prowess.

"India played their warm-up fixture against Australia rather comfortably. On subcontinent pitches like these, India are the most dangerous T20 side in the world. Even today, if we see the 155 runs they chased down, they did not even need Virat Kohli to do so," he added.

Though he did not pick any favourite, Inzamam termed the India-Pakistan clash in the Super 12 on October 24 as the 'final before the final' and said the team winning it will go into the remaining matches high on morale,

"The match between India and Pakistan in the Super 12s is the final before the final. No match will be hyped as much as this one. Even in the 2017 Champions Trophy, India and Pakistan started and finished the tournament by facing each other, and both the matches felt like finals. The team winning that match will have their morale boosted and will also have 50 percent of pressure released from them," Inzamam added. (IANS/JB)

Take a look at the ideal times to moisturise your body shared by Kimi Jain, Head of Retail, KIMRICA.

Moisturising the body in the morning sets your skin up to face countless irritants and environmental factors during the day. The skin is constantly exposed to harsh chemicals and pollutants when you're outside which is why using a protective and soothing moisturiser while going out is necessary. Kimirica's Five Elements Body Lotion comes with natural Aloe Vera extracts that act as a rich source of antioxidants and vitamins that helps protect your skin and provide a deep nourishing effect.
