Barkha, Sushant is NOT the opportunity to spread awareness about mental health! I explain why.

Disclaimer: I am not making any criminal allegations and I am NOT talking on behalf of Sushant Singh Rajput’s father (my father in law). This is an independent opinion and is a response to what was presented by Barkha Dutt (allegedly an audio recording of Susan Walker Moffat, who is alleged to be Sushant’s psychotherapist).

I have been watching everything from the sidelines and analyzing the discussions happening around my brother-in-law’s death.

sush2

Sushant and I in 2014. I saw him last in person in July 2017 on my trip to India.

Sushant and I had a very healthy relationship and most of our conversations were around books and movies. I have known him since 1997 (my 8th grade) since his sister Shweta (my wife now), he and I went to the same school. Shweta and I were in the same grade and he was a grade junior. Whether you believe it or not, he was charming but shy and was known more popularly as Shweta’s little brother amongst my batchmates. Shweta and I had a little bit of chemistry and some batchmates teased us as “Jija-Saala” when we sat together on the school bus. That eventually was proven true in 2007 (thanks to the amazing coincidence that I went to IIT Madras for my undergrad and my wife went to NIFT Madras for hers, which gave us the opportunity to stay in touch and we eventually tied the knot in 2007).  I had moved to the US in 2006 but stayed in touch with Sushant until early 2019 and then we lost touch. Now I can make sense of perhaps what transpired and his loss has left me with immesurable grief.

I am a feminist and I care about women’s issues. My first point is that caring about women’s issues is not incompatible with filing criminal charges against a female suspect. Calling criminal charges against Rhea misogynistic is an incorrect assessment of the situation. While on average, more men tend to engage in criminal behavior, criminality is not outside the purview of women.

My second point is that I do personally believe that there should not be a “special” stigma around mental health issues. Just like physical health, mental health is also an outcome of biology and the environment. The reason I said “special” is that it’s nearly impossible to completely eliminate stigma from health issues. For eg., if there is a person suffering from diabetes, there will be some amount of stigma about his/her lifestyle even if this person was genetically predisposed. Similarly, whether we like it or not, there is no country in the world where stigma around mental health is zero. I live in the United States and there is a tremendous amount of stigma around mental health here. So, even if we are able to bring down the “special” stigma, we might not be able to completely eliminate it. However, since there is an enormous amount of stigma today, mental health information is protected by the law of the land. Disclosing mental health information by a psychotherapist/psychologist is not only unethical but also illegal (except for certain circumstances which don’t apply here). I leave it to my father-in-law to press charges on this matter.

My third point is a question on the validity of Susan’s claims. Diagnosing mental disorders is an arduous task and diagnosing someone Bipolar (I or II) is even more so. Not only do you have to observe the person very closely, but you also have to observe them over long periods of time (it takes six years on average to diagnose after the onset of symptoms). Susan very conveniently diagnoses Sushant in less than two months (perhaps over a couple of appointments), with a life-changing diagnosis. And then she has the audacity to disclose this information in the public domain. If we are to believe Susan, another thing which does become clear is that it was Rhea indeed who was seeking treatment for Sushant and not Sushant himself. Prior to October/November 2019 (and certainly prior to meeting Rhea), as far as I know, no one who has lived with Sushant has ever complained about his mental health, nor has Sushant himself.

My fourth point is questioning Rhea’s role in the matter. I am not using any special information and I am quoting everything available in the public domain. The FIR claims that Sushant was perhaps given psychotropic drugs by Rhea (maybe even without his knowledge). Covert/Surreptitious medication is also perhaps illegal in the 21st century. There could be many explanations of this sudden onset of mental health issues in October/November of 2019. This could be a result of covert medication and withdrawal of psychotropic drugs (perhaps the covert medication stopped during their Europe trip in October 2019 [perhaps because of eating out mostly so no opportunity to covertly medicate him with food? or perhaps intentionally not medicating?], which led to withdrawal symptoms).  And then, he was perhaps taken to the psychotherapist under the pretext of care. Another surprising thing is that setting up appointments and being present at the appointments (both done by Rhea) could be a sign of keeping a tab on Sushant’s conversations with the psychotherapist and keeping evidence of mental health issues so that it can be used later for blackmail or to justify the firm control on his resources. If what was bothering him was Rhea’s gaslighting and blackmail, Sushant probably was not given that privacy to discuss. The more important mental health discussion here could be that of Narcissistic Personality Discorder and/or sociopathy/psychopathy for Rhea.  Sushant seemed to have suffered gaslighting at the hands of Rhea, based on the information in the public domain. Antisocial Personality Disorder is the more technical term for sociopathy/psychopathy and could be potentially diagnosed for Rhea (I am not diagnosing, only suggesting). Based on what happened, gaslighting seems to fit the bill, in addition to other methods of confinement and control. Again, I have every right to question based on the information in the public domain and unlike Barkha Dutt, I am NOT privy to the statements from Rhea’s psychotherapist and I am not disclosing private mental health information. Based on the evidence in the public domain so far and the claims in the FIR, Rhea is the prime suspect in this case. It will indeed be a shocking surprise to the entire nation if it is found in the court of law that she was a loving partner and not an opportunist who eliminated most of Sushant’s ties with his family and friends. 

My final point is that of disappointment in Barkha Dutt in this matter. Please understand that I am not attacking all her work. I am very disappointed with the path she chose in this matter. Unless proven in the court of law that Sushant took his own life because of a mental illness that happened without any foul play (gaslighting, blackmail, covert medication, or overt overmedication), this is NOT the example to use to create awareness around mental illness. Even if proven in the court of law, the only thing that can be even remotely used is the awareness aspect of it with the intention to help and never the intimate details of the diagnosis or disclosure of diagnosis from the mental health professional.

Barkha Dutt could have chosen to emphasize the financial angle. Most crimes have a financial angle and when there are so many pointers (from regular cash withdrawals and large expenses to shell companies), she chose to NOT focus on them and that does reek of agenda.

As a fellow feminist and an intellectual, I am very disappointed today and you will lose a lot of credibility amongst your readership. You still have an opportunity to amend by reflecting on the choice you made and perhaps apologizing for not deliberating on this enough before hitting publish. Perhaps, that will restore some trust in your journalism. Please understand again that this is not a personal attack but an expression of disappointment in the approach you took in the aftermath of our beloved Sushant’s death.

  1. To those who are attacking Vishal: Let us not be insensitive, please. We are all grieving for this loss yet it is difficult to imagine the pain that this family is going through. Also, we have a limited understanding of the situation considering that we do not have access to the facts that the family has. So let us refrain from expressing our opinions, personal anecdotes, accusations, questions and criticisms if that increases their grief. Even kind words cannot soothe the heart sometimes, so how can vicious words help during a tragedy of such immeasurable magnitude?
    If we cannot be supportive, we can at least be silent.

    Vishal: I feel compelled to comment again after reading some of the terrible responses. I wish you did not have to read such vile language when the family is going through such a difficult time. I wish I had the right words but I don’t. Perhaps there are no right words. Thank you for sharing. Love and support to the family.

While I was reading I found a word BIPOLAR those who are familar with this term know about and those who don’t know for them . In this situation prima facie observation should very close and accurate because any person who is suffering from this they themself don’t know WhenTheir mood swings very quickly. And as we know sushant was iconic star who acted in movie like chhichhore and Sonchirya in which he performed so well and which needs so much of patience for prefect shot. And had anybody said that sushant behaved rudly so many star like manoj Vajpayee. Sekhar kapoor Spend so much time with him had they said Any thing about it. What they said whenever sushant played any role he use to live in that character.
      With due respect barkha mam when some allegations is made against someone. He can challenge him on defamation. But when he is no more with us then portraying new story about him is very unfortunate. Pardon my words but this act could lead deviate whole investigation.

      • Dear Aditya and to ALL others on this blog and elsewhere (including Ms Barkha Dutt) who are all for scapegoating a father and a family at a time of immeasurable grief and irreparable loss,

        1. There are sound reasons and rationale for the people to be, as you put it and in your own words, “baying for Rhea’s blood”. Many of those reasons have been highlighted and documented in this blog and in the media.

        2. As easy as it is to point fingers at anyone and everyone with a blasé attitude, a FIR can only be filed and then investigated pending initial burden of proof. However, for those people, and elected governments who are either used to flagrant disregard of the basic minimum constitutional respect or consider themselves outside the purview of the constitutional framework, it is understandable why such a simple point is beyond understanding.

        3. Regarding Ms Susan Walker Moffat, I can assure you that had it been anywhere in other countries , especially in the “western world”, Ms Walker Moffat would have been, by now, behind bars on criminal charges and her licence to practice revoked:

        a) for disclosing patient details and violating the medical code of ethics and conduct, and
        b) for being unprofessional and disregarding the Mental Health Act.

        4. Ms Susan Walker Moffat does not even hold a licence to practice in India nor has ever cleared the necessary requirements under the Rehabilitation Council of India guidelines and is not registered as a qualified “clinical psychiatrist and psychologist” as Ms Walker Moffat claims to be.

        5. Also, just for your information, there is a BIG difference between being a trained therapist and being a “clinical psychiatrist”. A trained therapist is NOT allowed to prescribe ANY medication whatsoever.

        6. Ms Barkha Dutt Ma’am, if you ever happen to stumble on this reply, I would sincerely like to state that I and many others remain grateful to you because as a seasoned investigative journalist, you have, through your actions, helped in opening up Sushant Singh Rajput’s case in a BIG way. Deepest respect to you, Ma’am.

        7. Aditya, and others who trust Ms Walker Moffat’s “claims”, it might be a good idea to research a bit more regarding mental health disorders and their diagnostics, before blindly submitting to a “trained therapist’s” claims.

  4. Family members, please take mental illness seriously. Happy people, extroverted people, strong people, courageous people – anyone can suffer from mental illness. It does not need an external trigger. It is a chemical imbalance. It can occur in one’s twenties and thirties, without any significant symptoms previously.
    Mental illness is real. It has nothing to do with “evil” girlfriends, political figures, organized plots. It needs to be de-stigmatized, so people do not fear being “outed”. It needs to be treated with loving kindness and compassion, so families and friends can accept it, and not stand in denial.
    Denial helps no one. It delays treatment. It sets back the person suffering from illness and does not get them the help they need.
    All these comments about, “Sushant could not have had mental illness” and “Sushant could NOT have been depressed” are a sad reflection of society’s ignorance of and stigma around mental illness. So what if he was mentally ill? Does that mean he wasn’t strong? Courageous? Passionate? Inspiring? Curious?Why are these things considered mutually exclusive by so many of you? Why such stigma?
    Clearly he spoke with multiple psychiatrists. He was being treated for some time. He googled “bipolar” and “painless death” before his passing (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18Xim4hBztI). He was in mental anguish.
    If he had been received with acceptance, instead of denial, maybe there would have been a different outcome. If he had felt safe enough to live in his truth in front of all of you – his fans, friends, and family – maybe he would have received the support and stability he needed.
    You are all proving true all the reasons people choose not to share their mental illness diagnoses. These conspiracy theories, the snap judgments – this is just so pitiful and sad.
    The last thing I want to do is attack Sushant Singh Rajput’s family. I can only imagine the devastation, confusion, and utter helplessness they must feel. At the same time, I am sickened by the social media vigilantes that are baying for Rhea’s blood based on ZERO evidence. It’s shocking and saddening and unfair. Most of all, I am dismayed by the utter ignorance and stigma and denial and lack of dignity surrounding mental health.
    We’ve already had one tragedy. This mob lynching has got to stop. Let the authorities do their job. And then, let’s all focus on honoring SSR’s memory.

    • Aditya,

      I stopped replying hoping there’s at least one less thread of accusations flying. But, what you’re doing is neither respectful nor constructive. You’re trying to induce guilt in family and going overboard with it. Also, you’re clubbing every single mental illness in a single bucket including cause and symptom. Mental illness can be caused by chemical imbalance or external factors or triggers or genetic factors. You’re pushing everyone to accept in this case, there were no external elements and zero triggers on the word of a single therapist who seems to lack integrity. I can ask you the same qs, how do you know? Ankita Lokhande has mentioned Sushant sat at home for 3 years. Would be frustrating for most but she saw zero signs of disturbed mind or mood swings. Bipolar is apparently a mood disorder, doesn’t just kick start in adulthood. So, even assuming it was latent until 2019, something precipitated the symptoms. What was that event or sequence of events? Since except Rhea no one else had any access to him, and with how he was cut off from everyone, it looks fishy. Gaslighting is not a cooked up theory, there are legit cases out there. I neither agree nor disagree. But the family’s opinion should be considered. Because they have a right, you and I don’t

        I want to do no such thing. Their pain is real and palpable. Their confusion is understandable. Their quest for answers is entirely reasonable.

        However, this mob frenzy has got to stop. Social media vigilantes are baying for Rhea’s blood based on zero hard evidence. Zero. And frankly, even this family member’s post on Rhea’s supposed personality disorders is a gross overreach. Please understand the distinction – Sushant was diagnosed by a reputed psychiatrist, who clearly has much more experience and expertise on mental disorders than you, me, the author of this post, or the thousands of armchair analysts on social media. Are you really suggesting that Rhea would be able to fool and manipulate a trained psychiatrist? Incidentally, the Mumbai police interrogated not one but multiple psychiatrists Sushant consulted with. SSR met with a trained therapist as well, several times. According to the Mumbai police, he googled “bipolar” and “painless death” before he passed. I am genuinely flabbergasted as to why netizens would completely disregard all of this, to pursue some grand theory.

        I merely want to present an alternative point of view from the prevailing mob-mentality narrative. In fact, this “alternative” (sad that one should label it such) point of view is most consistent with hard evidence and testimonies from qualified professionals (psychiatrist, therapist, CA, autopsy report), whereas the fanciful theories are NOT consistent with the hard evidence and testimonies from qualified professionals.

        My other motive is to dispel the ignorance I see on mental illness. I have not shared my story until now, given that I did not think it relevant to the facts. I will do so now succinctly, only because you seem to think my motives are to disparage the family. In fact, my mother was diagnosed with bipolar and schizo-affective disorder when she was well into her forties. We did not realize it growing up. We did not see the hypomanic episodes (you only need one for a bipolar diagnosis) when she spent half of my parents’ savings in one week. We thought the times she retreated into herself was just because she needed space. She was so happy and full of life otherwise. We did not recognize it until she experienced a full-blown delusion. My biggest regret is that we did not get her help early enough.

But I ask you to see this objectively, not to prove a point. do you think you’re projecting here? Mental health issues do not need triggers but can also be caused by them, what is so illogical about that? You’ve picked ‘no reason’ to side with which is fair, It could very well be the case but why is any other impossible? Also, I did not say he had no illness, or it’s a sham. I look at mental illness like diabetes or hypertension, it’s about getting the right help and learning to deal with it. But managing mental health also depends on the support system. Looks like in this case, it got to a point where he had none except her as his support system either by design or by choice. There are some gaps there for sure. Why is that so difficult for you to see? I’m against the stigma as much as you are! But you’re equating logic to either my way or fool’s paradise. That’s not a lesson in logic even if I’d like one. Also, I’m not suggesting anything except a full investigation. I’m only defending the family’s right to find closure and ask for all angles to be investigated

      • Kb, I think a lot of you are saying is reasonable and balanced. A couple of things I’d like to share:

        You said, “Mental health issues do not need triggers but can also be caused by them, what is so illogical about that?”
        Nothing at all. That’s entirely consistent with my perspective. Not once did I say mental illness CAN’T be triggered by external factors. Of course it can. I said it doesn’t NEED an external trigger.
        This was in response to people commenting that Sushant was a strong, happy seeming person, and therefore could not have suffered from mental illness unless induced by an external influence – e.g., drugs administered by an evil girlfriend.
        This conclusion is based on an incorrect assumption – and that is what I was pointing out. It is astounding how many people fervently believe this false assumption to be true, and present it as “clear evidence” that Rhea must have been manipulating SSR.

        As for why Sushant did not have his family around to support him. Sushant’s family knew he was depressed – or at least that he was being treated for mental illness. They even mentioned it in a text – they knew this as early as January/February. Sushant was not taking their calls or for whatever reason chose not to involve them (extreme withdrawal from family and friends is actually a very common behavior pattern among people suffering from bipolar, particularly during the depressive phase). Family was in touch with Sushant’s business associate. Family knew where Sushant lived. A family member visited him at least twice over the last six months. Family tried to get him to stay with them. He refused.

        If SSR’s own family could not get him to speak with them consistently or stay with them, why does everyone expect Rhea would miraculously be able to get Sushant to speak with his family? Can I tell you once again from personal experience – it is EXTREMELY difficult to get someone to listen to what you think is common sense, when they are mentally ill and ESPECIALLY if they suffer from delusions/ paranoia.

      • “But you’re equating logic to either my way or fool’s paradise.”

        Here’s what I am saying. The hard evidence cited by trained psychiatrists, therapists, CA, autopsy report points towards mental illness and no foul play in terms of financial fraud, mental manipulation, or bodily harm. This seems to be the most plausible answer.

        Could Rhea have somehow orchestrated a massive plot to expertly drug Sushant in a way that would fool multiple reputed psychiatrists and escape an autopsy report, bribe Sushant’s associates (that HE hired – e.g., Siddharth Pithani) and CA, and compromise the Mumbai police? Hmm. Sounds kind of ridiculous, but sure – it’s not absolutely, completely impossible. It’s replete with holes though. For example:
        + Why can’t the CA find any evidence of financial fraud or significant funds transferred to Rhea? If she apparently swindled him of 15 crores, how come the CA and Mumbai police categorically deny any evidence of this?
        + Why would Rhea take the risk of taking Sushant to multiple reputed psychiatrists? Didn’t she fear being found out?
        + Sushant had allegedly stopped taking pills a few months ago. If Rhea was using these pills to drug him, shouldn’t he have gotten better after stopping the pills? Why did he get worse?
        + If Rhea WAS still drugging him, why didn’t it show up in the autopsy report?
        + Sushant was exhibiting signs of paranoia, stress, and anxiety after hearing about Disha’s passing. He allegedly cried and even called his brother-in-law and begged him to take him away or else an unnamed entity would get him. This is consistent with classic paranoia and delusion that often accompanies a severe bipolar episode, but the public refuses to believe this to be plausible. What’s the alternative theory?

        What puzzles me is why the public would ignore the plausible answer and be ABSOLUTELY CONVINCED about the conspiracy theory that is completely inconsistent with the hard evidence, not to mention extraordinarily far-fetched.

        My grad school behavioural sciences professor would always say – conspiracy theories are a sign of an unstable state or an immature polity. I never quite internalized that then, but now I do.

        This tragic event has become a spectacle – people have lapped up intensely private details, shared videos of his lifeless body, and deprived the man of dignity and privacy in death. The media has made an absolute mockery of the investigation – they have compromised witnesses through intimidation and fear of mob backlash while the case is sub-judice, made witnesses fear for their lives, and twisted and sensationalized the narrative to the extent that I honestly believe the public will refuse to accept any outcome except a guilty verdict for Rhea. Truth and trial be damned.

        And I’m sorry to say this, but if history is any indicator of the future – most of these so-called indignant warriors will disappear soon enough after they find another source of sordid entertainment. It’s pathetic and pitiful, and I can’t imagine that SSR would condone this mentality.

      • Hi Curious – it has been several years since grad school. I am not a psychology major. I am an economist and postdoctoral researcher. I have however in a personal capacity researched bipolar disorder extensively due to my own family experience with this – my mother was diagnosed in her forties, and we made it our mission to educate ourselves as much as possible to give her the best possible support and outcome.

        And yes, there was plenty of denial and suspicion from some extended family members, since my mother was a loving, strong, confident person in their eyes. She still is ALL those things, but yes, her depressive phases are very, very difficult. And she has had a few manic episodes that have been extremely scary and erratic. Instead of compassion and support, it was an exhausting journey to convince everyone that my mother wasn’t depressed because of an “abusive spouse”, “abusive mother in law”, etc etc. There was a lot of, “How can she be depressed suddenly? She was ok last year”. So when I see the same arguments applied to Sushant, my personal experience not to mention mountains of research that I can point to motivate me to dispel the ignorance I see around mental illness.

        Willing to have a rational discussion.

    • @Samhita Sharma, To hell with your underhanded advice. Advice your criminal gang to stop committing crime. Thoughts of Justice seekers of Sushant below. Lies and deceit only works to certain extent..ultimately Truth Wins.

      SSR was murdered, using suicide word is injustice to him, when we are fighting for his justice we have to take care of this. Qutipine 25 or 50 Qutipin 50 Tablet is a prescription medicine used in the treatment of schizophrenia (a mental disorder that can result in hallucinations or delusions and also adversely affects a person’s ability to think and behave) and mania. .””this medicine may cause a sudden drop in blood pressure when you change positions.It also causes dizziness and sleepiness”” (Its a very Dangerous Drug) I am feeling cry…oh god..Friends..Read this, Oh God, it means Sushant was overdosed by Rhea, then he was sleepy all the day and Rhea with friends partied Upstair with Sidharth Pithani. thats why Sushant ko hallucinations athe they. She is the most dangerous Witch in the Universe. I will pray to God Rhea ko uski family ko itni saja mile , ki Narak bhi yahi naseeb ho usse..SHAME ON ALL THE WITCHES, BITCHES N BASTARDS THAT LIVE AMONGST US AND ACT NICE TO WIN TRUST AND BACKSTAB.

  7. The medicine is used to treat bipolar as well and was prescribed by Sushant’s psychiatrist. But you’d rather believe conspiracy theories, I’m sure!

  8. I think the article clearly articulates the agenda Barkha Dutt carries against anything she can tag with Modi or BJP and even an innocent’s death is a matter of some short of pseudo feminist pseudo liberal agenda for her. Arnab’s expose in this case has not gone down too well with her and she is trying to derail the investigation with this leak. It is quite interesting that this so called psychotherapist only called Barkha for this made up story. Although related to Sushant, Vishal has given a very unbiased picture of the whole case, which the fellow countrymen have felt deeply about. My heart still pains to think of Sushant’s sisters, one of them being Vishal’s wife, and his father who must have been feeling that a piece of their heart and centre of their universe was forcibly taken away for them. What an irreplaceable void this has left within their lives is unfathomable. I think God has listened to our prayers and efforts and i hope he gets justice. It will not only be a victory for Sushant , but for millions of others who feel Sushant as one of their own. It will be a symbolic victory for the great aspirations and myriad struggles a middle class guy faces in our nation to reach to the top , a victory for meritocracy. A victory worth celebrating!!

  9. ADITYA ALIAS CURIOUS, STOP WITH THE SALE OF YOUR MENTAL ILLNESS BUSINESS ON THIS BLOG. YOUR INTENTIONS ARE AS DECEPTIVE & CONTRADICTORY AS YOU ARE. WRITE A BOOK ON YOUR SHIT LOAD OF RESEARCH AND PERSONAL EXPERIENCES, SELL YOUR BOOK ON AMAZON. YOUR DISCUSSION IS A FARCE TO SUPPORT CRIMINAL ACTS. PAID PR IS A DISGRACE TO THE SOCIETY.

  10. Agreed with your thoughts sir. And every point you made were so correct.

    With regards to Barkha I have nothing to mention. There is every attempt made to give this a “Bechari Ladki” angle. This is also one of the reason for the current state of affairs for women. Women don’t want this kind of sympathy. They are strong inside. In fact more than men. What they want is to be treated equally.
    What all the Fans want is to get justice for Sushant as we don’t believe this to be a Suicide.
    We can understand your feelings. If we as fans who actually don’t know anything about Sushant are feeling so terrible for Him then you must be devastated. Please accept my prayers.

  14. Dear Vishal,

    Like many others on your blogspot and elsewhere, I am feeling compelled to write and respond to the sceptical (mild-term) sections constantly targeting Sushant Singh Rajput’s father and family.

    My deepest condolences for the irreparable loss. There are countless people globally who are fully behind the family in their effort for unmasking the truth.

    As many people are vocalising their thoughts, there are an equal number, if not more (like myself), who are silently watching the farce and supporting the fight for justice.

    This is now, not anymore, a mere case of suspect death. This is now about a nation’s governance, law and order and the judiciary. This case and the way it is decided will have far-reaching implications for the country’s external image and internal governance. And, truth will win.

  15. Dear Vishal,
    So very sorry for your loss. Sushant was an exceptional, irreplaceable gentle soul. Please accept my deepest condolences. I am not much of a writer, nor I have ever participated in any campaign before but somehow, Sushant’s passing has left a great impact on me. I am following and trying to take part in my capacity to help in any way I can. What ever you have said about the whole situation, I have been posting the same things since day one. I do not have a single doubt. I just want to appreciate the way you are standing by Sushant. This world is full of Toxic people like Barkha. Who ever is trying to belittle Sushant, Karma will get them for sure. I can not even imagine the pain his family is going through. I can only pray that Sushant gets eternal peace.The pain of losing him will not go away but may God make it bearable for you and the family. Not a single day go by when I don’t pray for his departed soul.Let’s pray we get justice for Sushant. Amen! 😢 #Warriors4SSR #justiceforSSR #BreakthesilenceforSushantSR.

  17. excellent thanks bestwishes, The world is dramastage weare actors Our life is what we do OUR ACT, our daily living is our daily acting role, acting finished means life finished. WE ARE SEEKING SUITABLE BRIDES FOR OUR TWO SONS, OUR GOAL IS TO ENABLE THEM REACH FULL TRUE HIGHER POTENTIAL, FUTURE PRESIDENTS OF USA. I was fired from AT&T Bell Labs in 1992 scientist engineer, it was big shock for whole family, in India too. interviews for new jobs blocked. although in shock wife worked from low level hard work later promoted, children targeted. my email trhalemane-at-gmail.com mobile in usa 17329389686also please feel free to visit my public instagram is @thirumalaraya and many posts since 2016 or so ps- dear all,Our goal is to enable our two sons Kaviraj and Shilpi to reach their higher full true potential, provide their leadership, make their contributions as future presidents of usa and world leaders. This will be needed by the country usa, the people of usa, the whole world (including india), in the rapidly changing, transforming world. It is in the nature of truth, nature of nature, nature of humanity, and is the only way forward. We are also seeking suitable brides for them, our two sons. I am telling the whole world, seeking a helping, facilitating, encouraging, good vibes, supportive type role. Basically the boy and the girl have to talk to each other and if they like each other, respect each other, willing to support each other, and wish to go ahead for marriage, then we bless. Thanks much Fwd: 2019 June 15 Me: Beautiful. Although in severe shock and great stress, we have faced the challenges and moved forward crossing the barriers, biases, impediments etc that came before us, … it was tough, not easy, for my wife and sons and the others also … I brought up my two sons Kaviraj and Shilpi as future presidents of usa, with that attitude/ outlook/ mindset, supporting and encouraging the leadership nature already in them. They are born in usa, grew up in usa and consider themselves as Americans. The country, the people and the whole world including India where we parents are originally from will need their leadership and contributions to go forward towards better future vision in true spirit of America. It is the nature of truth, nature of nature, nature of humanity. It is the only way. There is no other choice. Actually, we do not need a different choice. Because, it is also the best way. Perfect for America and the whole world. Nothing else can be better, however you may look at it. Best wishes. Aummmm….
