Let not depression take any ugly turnIncrease in domestic violence, children facing psychological problems because of excessive homework submission rules through online methods, housewives being overburdened with more cooking and the like have even ended in suicides.
This is extremely sad. We better not allow anyone to take their own lives in this crisis situation. Helpline numbers are freely available. Even if we know that someone is in distress, a mere call can possibly save a life.
With a very uncertain future, we need to be pragmatic. Apart from following every norm to avoid the virus, cutting down cost, left, right and center is the best thar we can do. Even the smallest amounts saved can help us get over the economic problems. The recurring deposit will force us to save every bit, and even small amounts. Banks like Federal Bank allow RDs to start at Rs50/.
Those who have a balanced view of life can help others in distress. The best solution is to help them see through different possibilities. Lessons can be learned from anyone. The auto guys have started selling fruits and vegetables. The capital is through jewel loans. The biggest advantage is that one can pay only the interest and keep paying the capital amount whenever possible. Simple solutions can always be suggested to those under distress.
Let we not become distressed ourselves. And we should counsel others too.
