  1. Thank for spreading awareness against suicide .Cycle of life and death should not be in human hands.we must leave it to God Almighty.What we should do is to justify our presence in this world by making this earth a beautiful place to live in.God bless you.

  2. Thanks a lot for this article. So many myths about suicide have been busted. I have read numerous articles on the suicides commited due toBlue Whale but it is only in your post what compels peoplke to try this game. It is an eye opener. All are not neccessirly suicidal. They succumb to fear. I am sharing this article on all my social media channels. This message needs to to communictaed to more and more people.

    1. Thank you! Only a small percentage of the people who died due to blue whale were suicidal. Some other things that people say when there is a news of a suicide. I hope more people get to read this.

  3. This is a very serious topic that you have touched. I agree, we should talk to them and try be helpful instead of going out to find the root cause of it.

  4. Sad and depressing truth! It is so important to spread awareness on suicide prevention. We should take steps to bust the myths and lend a hand, a shoulder to those in need. Great post!

  5. I really enjoyed this article because you have highlighted so many points that most people overlook when suicides are committed. I was just talking to my husband and he said I wanna try this stupid game n see what exactly is this crap and I had to stop him! This is what I felt too. A trap to emotionally take a persona into the negative zone and make him give up is life! most ppl falling pray here will be the ones who want to know more about it am sure.!

    “Curiosity and fear are natural human emotions and don’t make a person stupid” – well said!

  6. It is so very important to spread awareness about suicide prevention. I’ve seen depression from pretty up close and I know for sure most of those people were neither poor not cowards nor vengeful – they were just sad and/or anxious for varied reasons. Thanks for information on the Blue Whale Challenge. With children hooked to the their gadgets this is something I worry about despite having warned them time and again about giving out personal details on the Net.

  7. Wonderful post. Suicide is a mere act, what is more important is whether a person is sad or depressed enough to actually put those thoughts to action. Depression is a silent killer that people choose to ignore rather than treat.
    My son is still young but I’ve had discussions about him about the Blue Whale game and he agrees nothing ir worth dying for. A good heart-to-heart conversation is probably an answer to many of the problems in life.

    1. Thank you! It is important to know what your child is going through or thinking. Now that he thinks nothing is worth FYI g for, we need to be ready for when he asks what is worth living for.

      1. Human brain matures, almost everyday. New information flows in. It’s processed and stored. Existing info is disrupted. (An example is acquisition of slangs in speech/text, inadvertantly disrupting the original compositions)
        If Blue Whale was a part of my childhood, I would struggle. I can’t say that my brain would be mature enough to to take a decision related to my life life full stop

  8. I liked the way you have done your part of spreading the awareness. A very well curated and insightful post on the cause. Thank you for sharing your thoughts…

    1. Thank you! I don’t think it would make a lot of difference until and unless it helps someone who truly needs it. We must make sure we give the people seeking help the right path

  9. Very well expressed. All the myths and stereotypes built around suicide only add as road blocks for those who may come out and seek help. Hugs and best of luck.

  10. Happy to hear that you were able to overcome the feeling of despair. And, thanks a lot for spreading awareness about it. People with suicidal thoughts are not coward, they have just lost the correct path.Talking about it is so helpful.

  12. When you stand at the brink of that terrace, ready to jump at the count of 10, you lose the count by 7. Legs wobble. A ‘Should I do it?’ question crosses the mind along with million thoughts. For the first time you FEEL your heart. It tries to free itself from rib cage. Legs go weak. Something happens in the ear and you are going into a blackout standing there. All this is happens in that crucial one millionth of a second.

    If ever you live this moment, please be the best loser or coward in the world and pull out of it. Next time when people say you are a loser or a coward, just reply with a smile, “Thanks, I was the best.”

    And yes, rich people have problems. Its not always about the money.
