63: Victim and Leader two faces of the same coin! Just turn it at the right time
Hi Friends! Amazing to wake up this morning and being with you all. When it comes to dealing with something emotional, we all do go through a feeling of being a victim but the moment we choose to bounce back and revive, things change. It's just like victimhood and leadership are the faces of the same coin. All we need to do is turn it at the right time. People living with #mentalillness ( are NOT weak.  Mental illness is NOT a weakness of character. Mental illness is NOT from birth. People with mental illness are NOT dangerous. People with MI are NOT failures All they need during their tough time is love, care, and an ear to listen to their vows. If you come across anyone near you who is exhibiting a change in his/her behavior, talk to them and tell them, you care for them! Love you all! See you next Monday. Jai Hind Vivek
62: SUICIDE - What you MUST KNOW, Part I
Hi Friends! Not knowing the things or not being able to cope with a problem is not wrong at all! what's wrong is not seeking help! When we're in distress, the first thing we do is, we dissociate ourselves with others but does that solve our "big" problem? I doubt!! Today I'm gonna talk straight to the cause I work for i.e. Prevention of Suicide amongst youth. This episode is a conversation of mine with Dr. Soumitra Pathare who is a leading psychiatrist and Director of Centre for Mental Health Law & Policy. I'm sure you'll know amazing facts about depression and suicide in India. Looking forward to your kind feedback. I'll see you next mONday with the second part of it. Stay tuned! Jai Hind Vivek I apologize for the voice quality as it was a telephonic conversation and recorded over the phone.
61: Bhed Bhav (Discrimination), Aakhir Kyun??
Gareeb, paagal, kallu, gora, tumse ye sab nai ho payega, tum ladki ho, tum ladke hoke aisa karoge? etc How many times we have listened or said these things to someone in our lives? For many people, discrimination is an everyday reality. Discrimination is the unfair or prejudicial treatment of people and groups based on characteristics such as race, gender, age, or sexual orientation. The human brain naturally puts things in categories to make sense of the world. Very young children quickly learn the difference between boys and girls, for instance. But the values we place on different categories are learned – from our parents, our peers, and the observations we make about how the world works. Often, discrimination stems from fear and misunderstanding. Discrimination is a public health issue. As per one study*, chronic stress can lead to a wide variety of physical and mental health problems. Indeed, perceived discrimination has been linked to issues including anxiety, depression, obesity, high blood pressure, and substance abuse. Today's podcast addresses this issue with Shirish who works for this cause and runs his podcast channel also based on it. Don't miss the end part of it. You can even reach him out at It's a serious issue in our society and if you have any experience or suggestion, please share with me. I'll see you next Monday. Jai Hind Vivek * Pascoe, E. A. & Richman, L. S. (2009). Perceived discrimination and health: A meta-analytic review. Psychological Bulletin 135(4): 531-554. Doi: 10.1037/a0016059

32: How to manage unpleasant past?
Everyone has a past and that troubles us terribly. The more we try to run away from it, the tougher it gets and the memories of past haunt us. The human body is a giant repository of memories and the only way we can handle our past is by managing the memories available with us. We mostly deal with two types of memories: first that we are born with and the second those we acquire during our life. When we are an infant, no one teaches us good smell or bad smell or hot or cold but we certainly know how to react to them. When we grow up, we acquire a lot of memories in terms of knowledge (at school/ college/ home etc) but when we mature, we have a huge amount of memories to deal with and somewhere we get lost. Listen to this podcast to learn why we should not run from our past and how to handle it.  I'll see you next Monday. Jai Hind Vivek
