I am fine ?

Depression is a dark hole
a quagmire
which sinks further
with every attempt
to come out

one friendly hand extended
one kind gesture
one persistent query- 
tell me? tell me?

could change the rhetoric
from false
"I am fine"

no judgement
no quick solutions
just empathy and listening

could be the straw
the drowning one hold tight
your one word
could save a life.

There is something called the DUCK SYNDROME, people who apparently appear calm and at peace on the surface just like gliding ducks may in fact be dealing with constant conflict and turmoil, just like the fervent flipping of their feet by ducks beneath the surface, just to keep afloat.

India leads the world in both #depression and #suicide statistics, proving that our so called closely knot family and societal structures are of no or little help to #mentalhealth victims.

The fact that a scandal or MMS would get more views than this depression awareness video even after having the support of a major mainstream celebrity shows our disinterest and apathy towards mental health patients.

Look around, ask again and again and again. Your asking may melt the ice, may save a life.
