World Mental Health Day

Jashn Hai Zindagi

It’s World Mental Health Day today.. and this song by my dear friend Dr. Madhusudan aptly captures the plight of the patients.. and the stigma they have to live with!

Do have a look at the video ..it makes one aware about hard facts and figures and even proposes some remedies for this social disease.

Kudos Dr.Madhusudan for this great effort…and thanks bro for this golden opportunity to me and sis Arunima to be involved in this positive project. Blessings for all!
