MY ZINDAGI FOUNDATION ‘CELEBRITY T20 BASH – RAJKOT’ – MARWADI UNIVERSITY STRONGLY STANDS BY THE INITIATIVE TAKEN BY MY ZINDAGI FOUNDATION
Acknowledging it is off-limits.
Talking about it is a taboo.
Discussing it with friends and family? Never!
And yet, like the brave rising against the tides, MY ZINDAGI FOUNDATION has decided to usher in a change by tackling this problem headlong. Depression is a fact we have to understand and learn to deal with. It was not invented by Big Pharma; melancholia has been a recognized condition throughout the centuries, and while we’re only just beginning to understand how it manifests in the brain, it definitely exists. MY ZINDAGI FOUNDATION has taken up the cause of spreading awareness about this illness and help people acknowledge it and deal with it. Keeping up with the tradition, Marwadi University is a keen supporter of this initiative taken up by MY ZINDAGI FOUNDATION.
As we have stepped into the 21st century, we have witnessed a 360-degree change in our means of communication, all making this world an oyster, with information at everyone’s fingertips. But this has also opened doors for anxiety, apprehension and nervous tension – a by-product in today’s extremely productive world.
At MU, we have special MENTORSHIP PROGRAMS like SAARTHI working in this direction. We have seen that Depression is, in many cases, still seen as a “First World,” – a Western disease. And in the cases of many sufferers, families, and friends may simply not believe in its existence, instead of labeling it as exaggeration, laziness, or selfishness.
At MU we understand that this is a new frontier, in which we all collectively need to recognize and target an entirely new enemy. We will have to walk uphill to remove the preconceptions and myths about mental illness.
This celebrity match held in Rajkot was a wonderful step in this direction. Marwadi University has been a proud promoter of this activity and helped spread this good word across Rajkot through its media platforms. The takeaway message is that together, let us all be prepared for a future that requires even more hard work, but is assured that help is out there – My Zindagi Foundation.
