Ek baar mud kar jaroor dekh lena

A lot has been said about suicide prevention. All that I want to share is please please speak up. I know the feeling don’t allow one to share, but try, at least try to approach someone. May be anonymous but vent out, express yourself, take that pain out, pour your thoughts. Try to just speak up, please just turn around and try to say it.

Not much can I say but have written few lines expressing myself. And all I can say is I’m all ears if ever you feel the need to speak to someone if that helps.

एक बार मुड़ कर जरूर देख लेना
एक बार रुक के कोशिश कर लेना
एक बार पीछे जो खड़े है उनका सोच लेना

उस सोच से पहले

उस खयाल से पहले

बस एक बार आइने में मुस्कुरा देना

जाने से पहले

आने की वजह जान लेना

दूर होने से पहले

पास कौन है टटोल लेना

एक आखरी कदम से पहले

उस पहले कदम को संभाल लेना

एक बार बस एक बार

मुड़ के जरूर देख लेना

उस खिड़की से सूरज कल फिर झाकेगा

उस दरवाजे से हवा फिर आएगी

कोई कहीं आसपास ही होगा

एक बार हाथ थामने की कोशिश कर लेना

बस एक बार पुकार कर देख लेना

The government recently launched a suicide prevention helpline number. The ‘KIRAN’ helpline number – 1800-599-0019 aims at supporting early screening, first-aid, psychological support, distress management, mental well-being, and psychological crisis management. Seek help don’t hesitate.
