After My Sister's Accident, I Battled Depression Silently For Years...

*For representational purpose only.
When my sister, Navya, passed away, I felt really sad. I couldn't sleep, and I kept thinking about why she had to go. I was all alone in Noida, and I felt stressed. Then, I got engaged, but it brought more problems, like dealing with dowry demands and feeling stressed out every day. After I got engaged, things got worse, and I felt like I was living in a nightmare.

I was stressed and depressed, but nobody knew about it. Then, a friend who knew a lot about depression told me to get help. I started taking medication and meditating, but it didn't help much. I was so fragile that I started taking medication without telling my family. I also started eating poorly and felt isolated because I didn't want to bother anyone with my problems. 

As time went on, things got even harder, and I didn't even realise that I was getting more and more depressed. I felt like I was carrying a heavy burden all by myself without even knowing it.

Then, one day, I met an elderly couple outside Gurudwara Bangla Sahib in Delhi, and they inspired me to look at my problems more positively.

That night, I decided to start something to help others who were going through tough times like me. That's when I started Navya Rising, which is all about helping people who are struggling. 

For about a year and a half, I battled depression silently, even hiding it from my family. I cried a lot at night, and I couldn't sleep well. I stopped doing things I used to enjoy, like going to slum areas and helping NGOs. Then, one day, I felt overwhelmed with depression, so I went to Gurudwara Bangla Sahib in Delhi for some peace.

There, I met the elderly couple again, and I told them about my struggles. They inspired me so much, and I felt motivated to keep going for my peace of mind. 

Getting involved in social work became my way of coping with depression. It kept me busy and gave me a sense of purpose and happiness. It helped me feel better and find peace within myself. That's why I started Navya Rising, which is all about helping people who are going through tough times like I did. Through Navya Rising, I want to help people find happiness and peace in their lives.
