The word itself produces grief and guilt in the heart. One such incident happened in one of the colleges where I teach the Yes+ course and was online with many students after the obnoxious act. As always, one of the best friends of the students said ‘I didn’t know he would do this’. The students blamed the college for the malicious treatment meted out to the person no longer in question. The administration came out in big force to quell the entire episode. The students were lathi charged, the media news were fabricated, and finally the 1500 students were expelled from the college till further notice. The CAT exams in the campus had to be re-located and the students passed through a lot of emotional turmoil with the entire episode.
One action can become so scary, disastrous and lead to so traumatic for the community. I remember when I had passed through such feelings and had mentioned to Guruji about it, he had made me laugh over my emotions. As He says ‘Can you laugh at your negative emotions?’. The emotions had got completed eradicated.
A week later, I met students of the same college here in indore and they complained of not having a leader to initiate action. Lack direction, lack skills and ideas to raise their voices. Lack vision and responsibility. I feel grateful for having found all of it in my Guru Sri Sri RaviShankar, who once said ‘Only fools commit suicide’.
Actions of loss of life lead one to nowhere. And infact produce a malice in society. You never know who is losing hope while failing through cynical feelings and intense emotions of disconnecting oneself. It is imperative to talk to friends, family, acquaintances and people we meet about the Art of Living. You don’t know whose next. Stay connected, have faith and inspire people to Live. Live for others.
