Sanjay's decision not to commit suicide was the best decision of his life.

After being diagnosed with measles, Sanjay woke up one day to find he was deaf. Unable to complete his college degree at a top Engineering School and with a lack of skills for jobs and an inability to even talk to people, Sanjay reached a point where he could see no way out. How could he live without talking or hearing? How could he expect to learn? What company would want him?

The most plausible solution was to restart life by ending this one hoping to get a better one next time.

But he chose otherwise; Sanjay chose to fight.

He decided to understand his disability and find mediums to better express himself. Internet, e-mails and social media allowed Sanjay to tap into a bigger world. This medium of expression helped him interact with people from across the globe, build new friendships, exchange ideas, start partnerships, develop applications and work on projects together.

And so, Sanjay is now happy, healthy and strong. He is the founder of Sieve, Inc, a Community Manager at Google Developers Group Cochin… and a role model to all of us. 

Inspired by this story and by the fact that depression is expected to be the biggest disease globally in 2030, today we ask you to spread the word about mental health and help those who are going through bouts of depression and mental challenges to find ways to continue to express themselves.
