Let us focus on dawn

Written by VP

Is life fair? Was it ever meant to be fair? The suicide by rising Bollywood star Sushant Singh Rajput last week has spawned a debate in the mind. Endless questions, answers none. Or are there any answers?

First, the questions. What could force a person to end one’s kown life? Circumstances? Finances? Personal setbacks? Or a combination of them all? Voices on social media point towards nepotism. The word has been coined well, seems like a maze, a coinage beyond the understanding of most. Simply put, nepotism is ‘the practice among those with power or influence of favoring relatives or friends, especially by giving them jobs’. That’s a sad reality, yet a one that prevails; one that seems like sustaining and thriving. Seven films Sushant lost, courtesy the word nepotism, at least that is what is being claimed. The bigger question is in the first line… Is life fair?

Yet, it is true that humans have frailties. These become ‘extra-frail’ when life exerts pressures unexpected. It results in depression for most, the others settle for their fate. It is a feeling of dejection, of unrewarded merit, of hopelessness; something that leads to thoughts of suicide. Sushant Singh Rajput, unfortunately, took that route. God bless his soul.

Now, the bigger question is how can many others like Sushant be helped? Can they be weaned away from such thoughts? Can their lives be saved? Can hopelessness be conquered? Phew! It’s a tough one, yet worth a try. There is always light at the end of the tunnel, however distant. The darkest hour precedes the dawn. Can anyone stymie the onset of dawn? So, one has to learn how to wait, with patience and perseverance. Talk to friends; cuddle your pet, look at life as a journey worth every step.
