The Story Of Suicide
Author : Sriram Ayer (Founder Of 'NalandaWay Foundation')
Well, to be honest, even though I acclaim myself to be an avid reader, yet I can’t hold myself too long to “online reading”. I could hardly protract myself on net even it were just articles that I need to do research for something, let alone a Book. Second, I am a very selective reader at the same time. The story needs to be absorbing me incessantly, else my mind gets easily fatigued. I had left many well-known authors’ book half read till date lying in my Book salves. It’s a confession.
Hari: A character traumatized by Childhood sexual abuse by his own Uncle, grows up with a different sexual orientation – Precisely Gay- faces the world wearing a brave face while suppressing fear and emotional turmoil inside
Their Struggle for acceptance/identity (often they end up faking their identity) among peers
The resourcefulness, social media ability and handling the social media abuse
Their fears, insecurities and inabilities to survive a blow
Inabilities to handle Technology, their use/abuse
The unripe relationship blues, handling rejections and jealousy
The prejudices for different sexual orientations, homosexuality, LGBT
Their vulnerability to end their lives – SUICIDES
How I feel about the above Things: Here it is…
Taboos Involving Sexual Orientations/LGBT issues:
The aspects like Social media and Technological use and abuse, the serious consequences that happens due to the cruelty of insensitiveness and ridicules that people often throw in terms comments while hiding themselves into animosity, The Online bullying and the murky side of teenage relationships blues like breakups, rejections, revenge and suspicions, The Story Of Suicide serves as an Eye Opener for them. It not only grounded to reality but also it makes the reader brood over them while captivatingly immersed in the flow of the story line…..
The Story of Suicide isn’t just about stories of characters it’s a story about “SUICIDE” itself. And the illustrations are really mesmerizing!!
My Rating is 4.5/5 stars.
The “Extra half Star” is for holding my nerve till the end. Very few books had that effect on me, one of them being THE ALCHEMIST!!
Adolescence is often termed as “Difficult days” because the hormones often change their bodies faster than their minds. Though, they achieve manhood/womanhood physically, yet their minds still remain immature and naive. They are often expected to behave as grownups while treated as kids. So it’s easier said than done to find balance in their thoughts. We need to understand that “Adolescence” is a state and not a “Disease”. Our approach to this temporary phase should be practical and sensible at the same time. There are shadowy things attached to this stage which needs to be illuminated by showing them care, confidence and coolness for their Confusions and qualms
