Very beautiful take on Suicide by Sriram Aiyar written with emotions simply breathtakingly well.
I have faced myself many scenarios where the mind of the person enduring was shaken to such extreme levels that anything could have happened. Lucky are the ones that get timely god sent counsel.
Many times simple jokes lead to further aggravated situations. I remember my travel in train where four friends played a prank on a poor friend. They were returning jovially from Ajmer after visiting Dargah and were returning back to Mumbai.
Suddenly phone of a friend rang and as he started to talk his other friend grabbed the phone and said, "Bhabhi ji, we changed plans and are headed for Mussoorie. "
I was shocked to hear the conversation. The victim friend tried to say something but her wife knowing nothing had started her barrage of accusations and the guy's male ego hurt to the extent that he started talking of a divorce.
The whole atmosphere in my compartment had grown tense.
Suicide was what he was thinking as he stood at the gate of running train smoking trying to swallow the insult in front of his friends.
I had sensed the need of sound advice, which I was bursting to shell out upon him and struck a conversation.
To cut the long story short, I had thwarted a suicide attempt.
There have been many instances which I could easily relate to the book.
All in all a great endeavor.
