Parents these days are confused between getting their children onto a career track. In the earlier generations it was sort of decided by grandparents wishes or something equally abstract. Become a doctor, a lawyer, a businessman, the family tradition has to be continual. And the progeny were often given no choice. Their education was channeled […]

About Mohit Mulani
This blog is dedicated to solely the thought process of our dearest family member Mohit Mulani who was lost to circumstances outside his control on August 27th, 2016. Suicide has become too common and the voice of the person who was in depression and also the voice of the family who has to live through this tragedy needs to be spoken.
As guardians of his legacy, we want the world to know of his struggle with depression and anxiety. Suicide is never anybody’s conscious choice and that needs to be made clear. There are multiple factors such as life stressors, over prescription of anti-depressants, the family not being made aware that another family member was going through depression. We feel and know that these medications made Mohit into somebody he was not and made his depression even worse. If we as family knew that he was on anti-depressants, he would still be alive with support from family and friends.
It is understood that depression can be cured with a combination of factors such as support from family and friends, a good counselor and only then anti-depressants if absolutely needed. We were in the complete dark of him being on these anti-depressants and the withdrawal symptoms led to his worsening depression and eventual suicide.
The truth needs to be said in complete peace and a sense of understanding that there were situations both outside of Mohit’s control and the family member’s control.

Hello lovely readers, Here is another guest post by Vidhi- Mohit’s sister! Today, I am writing this post in honor of Mother’s Day. Growing up, mom would always tell me that we have been her world of joy and pain. I never understood what that meant being 15. At that time, I was living […]
Hey guys! Happy Monday! We are back on! Today’s post is a guest post by me, Vidhi- Mohit’s sister! I was listening to the most interesting podcast this week by none other than the supremely lovable Jonathan Van Ness from Queer Eye! The topic was a discussion with Dr. Leaf about why do we […]
A room without books is like a body without a soul. For me, books were my best friends, my solace, my comfort. I remember in school some boys proudly announcing how they read comics but have never read a book. Even sometimes, you hear adults say this as if they were into deep achievement […]
In the dictionary it is translated as “gap”, “space”, “pause” or “the space between two structural parts.” The spatial concept is experienced progressively through intervals of spatial designation. In Japanese, ma, the word for space, suggests interval. There is no better way of describing its intrinsic meaning than the way it is said by […]
As short as my life was on this earth, I sought out to understand the human condition of suffering and happiness as though they were juxtaposed within the same plane. Somehow, what would seem to be a very miniscule part of this seemingly vast universe, seemed to connect us all together. I am only a […]
There are two kinds of people in the world. Those who like and exult in public performances and those who live in a perpetual state of stage fright. You have to be a little mad and little odd in the head to volunteer to address an audience, I imagine a stand up comic has the […]
There was a time not so long ago when a doctor’s skills extended to what was known as the bedside manner. That was an indication of how comfortable he made his patients and gave them confidence. When I was studying medicine in New York I would see this qualitative and quantitative difference in the doctors […]
Albert Einstein once said “The world is a dangerous place ,not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.This is so true in today’s time and place where we live. The Mental Illness concept they are trying to sell to people ,that you have so an so […]
I always believed that the one thing for which we have very little respect is time. Until we run out of it for whatever reason. Say the word ‘time’ and the two most common associations are ‘time and tide wait for no one’ and ‘it’s about time.’ Beaten by the one we ask five times […]
