Inspiration-This IIT alumnus has stopped close to 70,000 people from committing suicide



According to an earlier study by the World Health Organisation(WHO), Indians are among the worst hit by depression, with nearly 36 percent of the population having a major depressive episode. While one person in India commits suicide every four minutes, younger Indians are among the worst hit.That’s why Richa Singh, an IIT Guwahati alumnus, started www.yourdost.com, an emotional support system for people to discuss problems with qualified and experienced individuals, in anonymity.

Problems among those who have sought help range from stress due to bad performance in competitive exams like CAT, IAS, etc. and relationship issues, anxiety during exam preparation, and the feeling of rejection due to working in a field they don’t enjoy, reported The Huffington Post.According to a 2015 report in The Economic Times, stress is part and parcel of college life, but for some students at the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), it can get overwhelming. Everything adds up: daunting academic loads, struggling to keep up after a lifetime of being an overachiever and the burden of expectations from family, friends and peers.

In 2014, the IITs saw an estimated 14 student suicides, probably the highest ever across these elite colleges. The inability to cope – often spiraling into depression – has haunted several students. “The world creates artificial expectations. There’s peer pressure, family pressure, societal pressure.Unfortunately, for some students, their ambition is centered around pay packages. To their mind, their success will be judged only around their pay packages and placements,” said Indranil Manna, director, IIT Kanpur.

This is where Richa’s contribution plays a crucial role. Anonymity helps, says Richa. “We all face problems, stress and anxiety at some point in our life but mostly we are not willing to talk about these, fearing social implications, being judged and for the fear of being judged. We are confident that technology combined with empathy and right kind of experts will go a long way in helping people going through a various emotional and mental challenges and equipping them to better deal with it,” says Richa in a report in Business Standard.

Indira Kameswara Rao with her daughter Sarala
Indira Kameswara Rao was presented the MS Subbulakshmi award in Vijayawada. Indira Kameswara Rao, a senior singer who served as a staff artiste of Visakhapatnam Akashvani for nearly three decades was fittingly selected by G.V.R. Government College of Music and Dance, Vijayawada to receive the M.S. Subbulakshmi award on the occasion of the birth centenary of the legendary singer. The function got at Gokaraju Laila Gangaraju Kala Vedika in the music college was presided over by veteran journalist Turlapati Kutumba Rao and the award presented by M. Krishnakumari, former Station Director of Vijayawada Akashvani. Turlapati, Krishnakumari and K.S. Govindarajan, principal of the music college spoke paying rich tributes to the unforgettably rich voice of the late singer and her charitable disposition.

The award function was followed by a sumptuous vocal concert by Indira Kameswara Rao who was well supported by her daughter Sarala also a singer of repute. The concert started with Neeve nannu palimpavamma a composition of GNB in Ranjani. This was followed by Gajavadanamasraye a composition of Indira’s guru late Sriman N.Ch. Krishnamacharyulu in Kedaram. Indira next sang in quick succession, Kalalanerchina (Deepakam) and an Annamayya kirtana Vande Vasudevam (Sri ragam). Indira Kameswara Rao presented next, a bhava rich Begada delineation preceding the Syamasastri’s composition Kamakshi. After rendering Lavanya Rama in Poornashadjam, Indira took up Vachaspati for the main item and melodious elaborate raga delineation was shared by both mother and daughter preceding the kirtana Paratpara of Thyagaraja. Indira Kameswara Rao was superbly accompanied by Vishnubhatla Krishnaveni on the violin and P. Subbaraya Phalgun on the mridangam. Krishnaveni’s solo versions of Begada and Vachaspati were attractive and Phalgun presented a robust tani at the end of the Vachaspati kirtana. The sumptuous concert came to a close with a Ramadas kirtana and an Annamacharya kirtana.
