Noida Residents Confused Sky Balloon For An Alien & People Are Like ‘This Happens Only In India’

In our country, something or the other keeps on happening and logic is always thrown out the window. Recently, a balloon in the shape of fictional character Iron Man was let loose in the sky and sparked fears of alien invasion among Greater Noida residents.
The balloon was filled with gas and resembled a robot due to its Iron man structure. It was spotted over the town on Saturday morning which later landed k. A canal near Bhatta Parsaul village. Checkout the post here- ग्रेटर नोएडा-आसमान में उड़ता देखा गया आयरनमैन, आयरनमैन उड़ता देख लोगों में मचा हड़कंप, लोगों ने समझा एलियन, सूचना के बाद मौके पर पहुंची पुलिस, दनकौर के पारसौल गांव का मामला। @Uppolice @noidapolice pic.twitter.com/i6031ODSC6 — Noida Leaks (@NoidaLeaks) October 17, 2020 The officials said that a huge crowd got gathered at the spot as they thought that it was an alien.  Dankaur police official Anil Kumar Pandey said, “It was a balloon filled with air that had gone up in the sky and later came down and got stuck in the bushes along the canal. A part of the balloon was touching the flowing water in the canal which had led the balloon to shake a little. Unbeknown to the spectators, this made for an anxious watch.” He also said that the major reason behind people getting anxious was the shape of the balloon as it seemed very unusual to people. आज दिनांक 17/10/2020 को थाना दनकौर क्षेत्र के भट्टा पारसौल गांव के पास एक रोबोट आकृति का गुब्बारा मिला है जिसमे गैस भरी हुई थी जो संभवतया धीरे-धीरे कम होने के कारण निचे आ गिरा ! pic.twitter.com/Fo6aCFDGdu — POLICE COMMISSIONERATE NOIDA (@noidapolice) October 17, 2020 "It was shaped like the Iron Man (fictional superhero character) given its color and design.

Editors' Pick: Comfy PJ's, Shorts and T-shirts To Take Your Loungewear Game Up A Notch

Who would've thought that we would spend over seven months and counting, just working from home. For some of us, it is likely that we would be working from home till March next year or even longer. While that may be a comforting thought for some, it does have consequences as well. To begin with, it means that no one is going to be touching their formal wardrobe for at least another 4-5months. Instead more people will wear PJs or shorts during a zoom call and not let anyone know while at it. An interesting thing that you might have noticed is the fact that once you start wearing your PJs regularly, they wear off quickly. Something that never happened before, when we only wore nightwear in the night time. As these definitions change this year, loungewear is quickly becoming a priority for a lot of people this year. If you're someone who is looking to invest in loungewear, here are some options you should definitely look at. 1. Lively Quirky PrintsPJs have somehow always been synonymous with quirky prints. We're talking about anything and everything that you love. From your favourite meal (shoutout to pepperoni pizza) to that show you watched last night curled up in your bed. You can get loungewear that essentially represents your personality, there is just so much to choose from! __ECOMPRODUCT__718__ __ECOMPRODUCT__719__ __ECOMPRODUCT__452__ __ECOMPRODUCT__720__ __ECOMPRODUCT__721__ __ECOMPRODUCT__722__ 2. Solids For The WinThere is something about solid silhouettes that is just so calming. Here, we would recommend to move away from traditional solids and choose more unique colours that easily brighten up your day as soon you slip into your loungewear. We suggest: __ECOMPRODUCT__723__ __ECOMPRODUCT__724__ __ECOMPRODUCT__725__ __ECOMPRODUCT__726__ __ECOMPRODUCT__727__ 3. Go OldschoolRemember the night suit you used to wear as a child? While one option for Indian parents was to make old t-shirts and shorts your night suit, another included specially bought sets with stripes or old school prints like leaves and trees. Do you remember those prints? There is no harm in going back to those prints if they remind you of your blissful childhood. __ECOMPRODUCT__728__ __ECOMPRODUCT__729__ __ECOMPRODUCT__730__ __ECOMPRODUCT__731__ __ECOMPRODUCT__732__

If Apple Wanted To Be Carbon Neutral, It Should Have Adopted The USB-C Port For iPhone 12

We’ve all heard by now that Apple has removed accessories like the EarPods and the charger from the box of the iPhone 12 and instead it will only come with a USB-C To Lightning cable. The move comes as a way for Apple to reduce its carbon footprint. However, this move may just cause even more electronic waste than ever.  For starters, removing the charger from the box is only going to encourage third-party charger manufacturers to flood the market with charging bricks for the iPhone 12. Since the iPhone 12 supports PD fast charging, we can expect to see even more chargers on e-commerce websites than ever before.  © Unsplash/yang-deng Not all of these chargers are going to sell out and it will create more wastage than ever before. Apple’s main argument is that people already have charging bricks at home and don’t need a new one when buying the iPhone 12. Instead, if users want new chargers, they will have to buy it separately from the Apple Store. These adapters will now have to be packed separately, shipped separately which in turn will increase environmental consequences rather than reducing them. In fact, Apple will tell you that reducing the size of the iPhone 12 box helps them reduce carbon emissions when it comes to transporting the iPhones. However, what they don’t realise is that shipping chargers separately adds to that cost as well. It was more environmentally friendly if the charger already came in the box of the iPhone 12 since it would have been more efficient and won’t require to be shipped separately. It wouldn’t require the additional packaging boxes and plastic either even if it’s recyclable. The case remains the same with third-party chargers as they will need to be packed and shipped to customers and stores as well. This one move could be more detrimental to the environment as a whole. It will cause a chain of events that will be extremely hard to get rid of.  © Unsplash/andreas-haslinger If Apple really wanted to reduce its carbon footprint, the Cupertino giant should have already switched to USB-C ports for iPhones just like it did for the iPad Pro, iPad Air and MacBook laptops. Almost every device launched in 2019 and 2020 has a USB-C port and Apple’s refusal of switching to the port is only preventing it from becoming a universal standard of charging. USB-C is now used widely on computers, laptops, tablets, Android smartphones, Gaming controllers, power banks and new generation of GaN PD chargers. The fact that Apple did not switch over to the USB-C port shows that the company is not really interested in reducing electronic waste. Had that been the case, using the lightning port on the iPhone 12 would no longer be the norm.  © Unsplash/mika-baumeister Much like the chargers, third-party manufacturers and Apple’s own factories now have to produce two sets of charging cables. One for iPhone users and one for everyone else who may already use multiple devices with the USB-C port. Not only will it create more e-waste, but it will also prevent the tech world from moving on to one universal charging standard which in turn will reduce carbon emissions and e-waste in the long run. It’s not like Apple hasn’t embraced the universal charging products, it just doesn’t want to implement it for its most popular and highest selling product. 
We can’t be really sure whether Apple would eventually move to the USB-C port. However, if Apple wants to continue on its path it has already started, the Cupertino giant really needs to start with the iPhone 12’s charging port. Sure, it will force users to replace their Lightning accessories, but it will have a far lesser impact than the lightning evolution change Apple users have had to go through with the 30-pin connector.

IPL 2020: 5 Cricketers Who Played Their Heart Out & Still Ended Up On The Losing Side

The ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has gone from almost being a no-show to the grand spectacle purely on the back of some high-quality cricket on display.  Currently in its league stage, the IPL 2020 has already witnessed some of the most memorable performances and record-breaking feats this season. From brilliant batting performances, majestic bowling spells to spectacular fielding efforts, the IPL 2020 has seen it all. But, while the eventual result continues to separate the playing teams, there is no dearth of talent or bravery on either of the sides. The result might declare one side a winner and the other a loser, but it shouldn't take anything away from a player's heroics irrespective of the outcome. While numerous cricketers have been hailed for their superlative efforts to help their team secure a win, the ongoing season has also witnessed few players, from the losing side, who captured the imagination of fans on the back of their exploits.  Here's a look at such 5 players who won our hearts despite ending up on the losing side: 1. Mayank Agarwal © Twitter/@IPL The ninth match of the tournament saw Rajasthan Royals record the highest successful run-chase in the history of IPL. Chasing a mammoth total of 223 runs, the likes of Sanju Samson (85) and Steve Smith (50) laid the foundation of their chase before Rahul Tewatia (53) added the finishing touch to seal a four-wicket win for Rajasthan.
It was an emphatic win that saw Tewatia running away with all the limelight. And, rightly so, the left-hander had pulled up a heist to save Rajasthan from a certain loss. But, Tewatia wasn't the only miracle worker that day.  Mayank Agarwal's blistering 50-ball 106 was just as good. In an innings that was decorated with 10 fours and seven sixes, Agarwal showcased a top-class exhibition of power-hitting allowed Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) to post such a challenging total. If it wasn't for his knock, Rajasthan's chase would have been a walk in the park. 2. Faf Du Plessis  © Twitter/@IPL After beating Mumbai Indians (MI) in the opener, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) were looking to carry on their winning momentum when they locked horns with Rajasthan in the fourth match of the tournament. 
However, The 'Yellow Brigade' were outplayed by Rajasthan who sealed a 16-run win - courtesy Sanju Samson (74) and Tewatia (3-37). Chasing a total of 216 runs, Chennai, after a cautious start, were undone by Tewatia's spin. But, Faf du Plessis kept the MS Dhoni brigade in the hunt on the back of a spectacular counter-attacking knock. Even as wickets kept tumbling at the other end, Du Plessis held the fort for his team, braving all odds and taking the game right till the end.  His gritty knock of 72 runs, including a four and seven sixes, came off just 37 deliveries and almost saved Chennai the blushes. Even if he ended up on the losing side, Faf's knock remains close to our hearts. 3. Ishan Kishan  © Twitter/@IPL This has got to be the most heartbreaking knock which can't help but make you feel sorry for young Ishan Kishan. The tenth match of the tournament brought Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Mumbai Indians (MI) face to face. The fifties from Devdutt Padikkal (54) and Aaron Finch (52) at the top got their team going while an AB de Villiers (24-ball 55) special powered RCB to a competitive total of 201 runs.
In reply, the star-studded batting lineup of Mumbai fell like a pack of cards with their top three adding a mere 22 runs. But, just when RCB began tightening the noose, Kishan, playing his first match this season, played one of the best innings under pressure.  A 58-ball 99, including two fours and nine sixes, from the youngster played a key role in pushing the match into a 'Super Over' decider. While Mumbai eventually lost the 'Super Over', Kishan's herculean batting effort struck a chord with fans. 4. Nicholas Pooran  © Twitter/@IPL At the age of just 25, Nicholas Pooran has already established himself as one of the most exciting batsmen in limited-overs cricket. A strong Trinidadian batsman blessed with the sweet timing and ability to clear the fence at will, Pooran's batting masterclass was in full display during the 22nd match of the tournament which was eventually won by Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).
Chasing a total of 201 runs, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) were done and dusted as their top three got dismissed cheaply. The onus was on Pooran who looked in a class of his own during a sensational 37-ball 77 which included five fours and seven sixes.  Despite the lack of support from his teammates, Pooran carried the baton for Punjab as long as he could. The fact that none of the batsmen from Punjab, barring Pooran, couldn't score more than 11 runs highlights the importance of his innings. Bowled out for 132 runs, Punjab lost by 69 runs but Pooran won big amongst cricket fans. 5. Jofra Archer © Twitter/@IPL A rare bowler in the list dominated by batsmen, Jofra Archer has successfully lived up to his reputation as a match-winner for Rajasthan Royals (RR) over the years. And, the ongoing season seems to be no different. In just eight matches, Archer has already taken 12 wickets and he is currently second in the list of leading wicket-takers this season. But, despite his talent, even Archer can't always find himself on the winning side.
The 23rd match was one such exception where, despite being impressive with his bowling, Archer couldn't save Rajasthan from a 46-run defeat. Recording brilliant figures of 3-24, Archer was pivotal in providing early setbacks to Delhi, dismissing Prithvi Shaw (19) and Shikhar Dhawan (5) before getting rid of Harshal Patel (16) in the final over.  His bowling effort saw Delhi being restricted to 184 runs. But, it proved too much of an ask for Rajasthan's batting unit that eventually saw their team getting bowled out for 138 runs, losing the contest by 46 runs.

Here's Everything We Need To Know About Magsafe On The iPhone 12 & How It Works

Apple's new iPhones are finally here and they bring a lot of new features to the table. One of them is MagSafe. If you've owned an older-generation MacBook, then you'd know exactly what MagSafe is. MagSafe was Apple's cool charging solution for the MacBook which used a pair of magnets. The advantage of MagSafe over the conventional charger is that these ones just snap-on when you take the charger near the charging port. So if you left your MacBook for charging on your desk and someone tipped over your charging cable, then the charger would just disconnect instead of pulling your MacBook along with it. © Apple Apple ditched MagSafe in favor of USB-C in 2016. But hey, it's coming back to the iPhones now and we're glad that it's here. Your iPhone 12 will still primarily charge via the lighting port. You can also use a wireless charging solution if you want. The MagSafe is just another option.
MagSafe For iPhoneApple will be selling MagSafe chargers that will snap on the back of your iPhone. Thanks to the circular array of magnets on both the phone and the charger, this should work without any issues. You'll simply be able to take your charger near the back of your iPhone and it'll snap on and start charging. Future Of Charging? © Apple MagSafe on iPhone, for now, is just another way to charge your phones. However, we totally see this becoming the primary way to charge your iPhones in the future. Apple has already removed the charging adapter from the box. We're hearing rumors that the company wants to make iPhones without any ports.
We love magnetic charging solutions and we're all in for this new MagSafe charging for iPhone. We can't wait to see the various implementations of the MagSafe in the future.

Tiger Shroff Just Set New Fashion Goals With His 'Dheeli Pataloon' That Looks At Least 3 Sizes Bigger

Tiger Shroff has been serving with us some serious sartorial moments, ever since he started stepping out amidst unlock 4. On one hand, there are celebrities who are all about wearing OTT sneakers, Tiger on the other hand, rather experiments with unconventional pants that oddly looks quite good on him.  © Viral Bhayani We just got caught another glimpse of the versatile actor, in one of the weirdest combinations that we have ever seen. His floor-sweeping pants are back and how! Take a look at his recent appearance and you will understand what we mean. © Viral Bhayani After looking at Tiger's style aesthetics, one thing is certain that he isn't into fits or trends. He is more about choosing relaxed silhouettes. Mostly seen in cargos with huge pockets or a simple pair of joggers, paired with tank T-shirts or hoodies, his sense of style screams comfort and style, often.  © Viral Bhayani As for the recent appearance as well, we deciphered that wearing a tank T-shirt with cargo pants, is his go-to, even for promotions or events. The blue hoodie on top puts emphasis on his bulked-up physique and he is totally making it work with this ensemble. © Viral Bhayani His grey trousers, on the other hand, are extra long and come with chunky pockets that pair well with the hoodie. The pants are super loose, at least three sizes bigger than his original size and yet they are a comfortable piece of style. These types of pants are a daring fashion statement that we have hardly seen on other Bollywood celebrities. 
This careless fashion blunder has been reiterated in a swell manner by Tiger and we can't help but applaud him for this style move. © Viral Bhayani Add to that, Tiger has taken the careless style to a whole new level, by wearing blue espadrilles to finish the look. When you wear such long pants, one would wear chunky sneakers so that the long pants don't get dirty but Tiger chose to keep it minimal, trying to grab all the attention to his pants and not on his shoes.
All in all, Tiger has started a league of his own with pants that aren't even his size. The man is truly owning it like a boss!

6 Movies To Watch If The Pandemic Has Ruined Anyone’s Plans Of Enjoying A Regular College Life

The pandemic life is becoming the new ‘normal’ and all of us, regardless of our age and occupation, are trying extremely hard to adjust and live a life with this ‘new normal’ tag being attached to everything. Offices are all working from home, school and college students are trying to find their way through online classes, even doctor appointments have gone digital. If you’re a college student who probably was looking forward to heading back to university, making an insane number of plans of upgrading that wardrobe, cajoling your parents into buying you a new phone, I feel the pain of not being able to take that drive everyday. The whole spotting of your crush and smiling, bunking lectures to sip coffee with friends, matching outfits and deciding where to hang out after classes, life is suddenly mundane and no students deserve it. Anyway, here are few movies that can help you catch a ‘vibe’ of college life as you continue attending classes online:  1.Dil Chahta Hai – Trust the classics to always get you in the ‘feel’ of whatever emotion you want to vibe with. DCH is basically history written down in all our hearts.   © T-Series From dreaming of wooing a girl at a random bar to planning those innumerable Goa plans with friends, DCH has given everyone a reason to love it. College life is fun if you have memories like these. 2. 3 Idiots- Though it was based on a book and the life lessons learnt in it are a separate topic altogether, lets not forget how nostalgic it made us feel when we watch people running in corridors, bunking lectures or simply ragging each other in the hostel dorm. If college is not opening anytime soon, then this movie will surely make you miss it.  
3. Chhichore- Probably the most relatable to all of us in the current scenario. The movie has friends take a trip down the memory lane and reminisce about the good old days of college life , something that we all have been doing at work as we all share memories from college with our colleagues.  
4.Dil Dosti Etc- One movie which created some strong ripples when it was released but failed to be a commercial hit. Dil Dosti Etc is a very relatable movie for everyone who’s experienced college life at DU. Student politics, the canteen in colleges, amateur relationships, this movie shows the real scene of how a typical student union ran in a DU college.  
5.Ishq Vishk- A very old movie indeed and Shahid’s debut as well. This movie came at a time when most of us were very young, still wondering how college life would be. The whole glitz and glamour of a college festival, the young bubbling romance, cheating in exams, though painted very nicely, this is a good watch for getting that ‘college vibe’.   6.Fukrey- The super hit ‘jodi’ of Chucha and Hunny are basically the kind of ‘friendship goals’ we all aspire to have in life.  
© Excel Entertainment This is the kind of movie that showcases the array of fun that awaits you when you plan to get into the same college with your best friend from school and weave plans of all the ‘masti’ that awaits you.

IPL 2020: 5 Indian Youngsters Who're Giving Big Stars A Run For Their Money This Season

Ever since the advent of Twenty20 (T20) format, the world of cricket has witnessed numerous leagues coming to the fore. From Australia, West Indies, Pakistan to even Bangladesh, every country has got its own T20 tournaments now. But, amongst those, none can match the Indian Premier League (IPL) in terms of stature or popularity. In the last 12 years, the IPL has established itself as one of the biggest and most-watched T20 tournaments across the globe. Bringing some of the biggest names together in franchise-based teams, the IPL has proved to be the go-to source of entertainment for cricket fans over the years. Big stars, celebrity owners, hefty paychecks and cheerleaders; IPL is the perfect mix of cricket, glitz and glamour. But, that's not all. There is more to India's cash-rich T20 event than meets the eye. Far away from all the razzmatazz, IPL has served as a pivotal platform for young guns to prove their mettle and rise through the ranks. And, the thirteenth edition, currently being played in the United Arab Emirates, has proved to be no different. Despite their tender age, Indian youngsters in IPL 2020 are not just learning while playing with more experienced campaigners, in fact, if their recent performances is anything to go by, it's safe to say they have successfully managed to overshadow the proven stars on the back of their brilliant performances this season.  Here's a look at those 5 Indian young guns who've won fans over this season: 1. Devdutt Padikkal  © Twitter/@IPL For an exquisite stroke player who set the 2018 U-19 World Cup on fire, Shubman Gill didn't surprise anyone after getting a Rs 1.9-crore contract from Kolkata Knight Riders in 2018. And, ever since making his IPL debut in 2018, young Gill has looked better with every game. But, it's the ongoing season where the right-hander truly looks in a class of his own.
Tasked with the responsibility of opening the innings, the 21-year-old batsman is leading the charts as top run-scorer for KKR this season. In the seven matches he has played so far, Gill has amassed 254 runs including two fifties. In a team that has got star batsmen like Eoin Morgan and Andre Russell, Gill has been busy carving his own niche on the back of superlative batting performances this season. 4. Rahul Chahar  © Twitter/@IPL For a youngster who led India to the U-19 World Cup triumph in 2018, Prithvi Shaw, like his teammates, was amongst the most sought after players in the IPL Auction. He was eventually bought by Delhi Capitals for Rs 1.2 crore and has gone on to become a key member of the Shreyas Iyer-led side.
After getting plenty of game-time last season, Shaw has looked in ominous form this year. Opening the innings for Delhi, the right-hander has been responsible for providing good starts to his team and also played some match-winning knocks. In the eight matches he has played so far, Shaw has amassed 202 runs including two fifties.  He is also the third-highest run-scorer for Delhi this season, only behind Shikhar Dhawan and Iyer.

Here’s Why Video Games Are Best Mode Of Entertainment For Mental Health & Deserve Your Attention

Whether your parents, girlfriend, boyfriend, husband or wife likes it or not, video games have proven to be good for mental health according to numerous studies around the world. In fact, in India alone, there was a rise of 200% in console sales during the lockdown period as more people started to play games. A recent study by the UK's National Literacy Trust found that “video games can be a genuine route for gamers in reading, creative writing, improving literacy skills and most importantly, emotional wellbeing.”  © unsplash In the case of the UK’s National Literacy Trust study it was found that 60% of the 4,600 respondents admitted that gaming has the ability to keep their kids in contact with friends and family during the lockdown. Keeping in touch with your friends on a regular basis is important for the mental wellbeing of children. In fact, if you want to know how video games personally helped me stay sane during the lockdown, read about my experience with Animal Crossing here. 
Games like Call of Duty: Warzone, Valorant and other competitive online multiplayer games enable gamers to strategize and implement their strategies that require precision and skill which no other form of entertainment can even evoke. These games also play an important role in the life of millennials. There’s a reason why the WHO encouraged everyone to sit at home and play games during the pandemic. Not only was it used as a measure to reduce the spread of the virus, but video games are also now more social than ever. It also helped gamers interact with their friends on a daily basis.

Getting Diagnosed With Depression At 11, Here’s How I Dealt With My Mental Health Disorder

The World Health Organisation defines depression as “common illness characterized by persistent sadness and a loss of interest in activities that one normally enjoys, accompanied by an inability to carry out daily activities”.  Sure, it all makes sense to me now that I am about to turn 25 but back when I was in class five and was diagnosed with depression at such a young age, I had no idea what was happening to me. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@jipandeyji) A Small Family BackgroundLet me take you back nearly a decade and a half ago.  I belong to a middle class family and have grown up in a house with three generations of people staying together since forever. I am a single child with no siblings and used to live in a three bedroom house with my grandparents, my parents, and an uncle and aunt back then. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@jipandeyji) Financially, we have never been the wealthiest and didn’t believe in spending extravagantly, but it wasn’t as if we were struggling to put food on the table.  However, going out for picnics with friends, spending money on buying Beyblades and Pokeman action figures wasn’t something I had the luxury of and I was completely fine with it, I guess I believed that that is how I was supposed to live my life. Being the youngest member of my family, I was told to not speak when the elders were talking, not to correct them even when I knew they were wrong and just accept whatever an “adult” told me to do. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@jipandeyji) This is probably why I was one of the favourite students in school (which isn’t bragging because now I feel even my school had some unfortunate rules that I agreed to blindly while I should have said something). © Aditya Pandey Ground Zero (I Guess..?)So, one fine day I was sitting in my maternal cousin’s car who belonged to a relatively wealthier family and he had turned on the heater because he was feeling a bit of a chill. I, on the other hand, started feeling suffocated and breathless but didn’t say anything because I have always been the little baby brother to him (and also because I was trained to not say anything to my elders).  I simply asked my brother to drop me at my father’s office but by the time we reached, I had started crying uncontrollably. My brother thought that it might be because I wasn’t feeling well but I knew that that wasn’t the reason. © Aditya Pandey I didn’t know what the reason was.
That was the first incident I remember clearly and I knew that something was wrong but I couldn’t figure it out. Things Got WorseFrom that point on, I’d simply get extremely sad for some reason and start crying out of the blue. I wasn’t sure why I was sad, nor did my parents understand what was bothering me. Their only advice was for me to go out and play cricket with my friends. And don’t get me wrong, their advice worked most of the time. Whenever I was out, keeping my mind busy with all the games and sports, I was completely fine. It was only when I was back home, that all the sadness would come back looking for me and I’d start crying again. My mother, who follows Buddhism, asked me to chant with her for my peace of mind and I did but I’d start crying in the middle of the chanting. I’d begun to lose interest in all the cartoons that I remember I loved watching every evening. Eventually I’d stopped going out to play as well and the sadness and the crying was all that I did all the time. Did I think I was going crazy? Definitely. Seeking Help View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@jipandeyji) When the crying became too much and my father realised that it wasn’t just one of those things kids in their “growing age” experience, he knew what needed to be done and I am thankful to him to this day that he acted upon it.  He took me to one of the leading hospitals in Gurgaon and made me talk to a “very nice uncle”. Now, in my head, I was ready to run away from the hospital if the “nice uncle” pulled out a big injection on me (I had seen my share of psychological thrillers by the time). But none of that happened. It felt like just another visit to the doctor. He sat on one side of his massive desk, my father and I sat on the other and we simply had a conversation. He asked me to explain whatever I was going through in detail and I’d already started crying even before I’d opened my mouth but he let me cry and tell my story. Unfortunately, I don’t quite remember all the details of the conversation but the thing I do remember is that one “exercise” he’d asked me to do whenever I felt sad and started crying. He asked me to “close my eyes, and think as if I was pulling every negative thought out of my head”. He even told me how to do it, as he demonstrated it with his hands. He told me to do it every single time I’d feel like crying, no matter how many times it was during the day. Years after that session, my father told me that the nice uncle was actually a psychologist and that I was diagnosed with depression back then. Maybe it was my trust in the therapist or my father but the exercise did wonders for me, it really helped! DISCLAIMER I am not saying that if you too have been diagnosed with depression, you should start doing the exercise. Every person is different, every mind is unique and the best way to get better is to get therapy and put faith in your therapist. Mental health, dealing with mental illness and overcoming such disorders are important. It is not as if the people before us didn’t face such issues, they simply failed to acknowledge it and either continued to live with it or decided to end everything in an unfortunate moment. We have the resources now, society has become more accepting. You are not judged for telling your story, you do not have to live in sadness for the rest of your life. There is a better way to live, a better way to spend your days rather than in misery and agony.
