Indian rising star Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead at his home in Mumbai on Sunday. Police confirmed he committed suicide, local media reports. He was 34. The police think the case is suicidal as of now.
Sushant Singh passes away
Sushant seemed to be one of the jolliest and happy actors in the industry, to even have a speck of doubt that he might be facing depression is a surprise to many. It is saddening to see that people who might be having inner turmoils may go about living their lives hiding it, or perhaps sometimes even succumbing to the pain. However, what is more, painful is how people are forced to make that decision. Maybe, at the end of the day, they are the ones who choose to end their life.
Although, when it comes to analyzing the reason behind their choice. We get to learn the number of rejections, the mockery, and the echoes of those they cared for the most mocking them and their decision. Sushant Singh Rajput is just one example. Oddly though, society won’t understand. No matter how many Sushants take their lives, mocking and judging someone will always be a parttime activity of the society.
