Every time I hear a suicide case, my deep thoughts burn in anger. Not that I do not wish the soul to rest in peace, but what about the living souls who loved the one who gave up on life? The same goes with Jiah (Nafisa) Khan, who ended her life willingly on June 3rd, 2013. Can the world know that NO ONE HAS AUTHORITY ON YOUR LIFE and by this I mean, parents too. Only God can give and take life. Leave something to him please. By reading the last line of her 6 page love letter which is by now viral than anything else, which said “I am much more than this.” I wish she believed in what she said. Very few know what the unfeigned root is, what triggered her to take such a drastic (read silly) step, but now that the mother is so loud to the media alleging her boyfriend (Suraj Pancholi) for the same, the wishes and sympathy go out to her by everyone. The cause remains mysterious.
Upset with her death and being teased by her classmates, a 13 year old in Anjar, Kutch on 8th June ended herself in the ditto way. Her classmates mocked her as they believed she resembled Jiah Khan. Her dad had committed suicide the same way when Dev Anand died. I find these reasons not even close to inane, but more than that.
All you got to do during such times is believe in you, you’ve come alone in the world and you got to handle things alone. Live, because there are many others who die to get a day more to live, and when you are living such a beautiful life, do not give up on it. You don’t commit suicide because you failed. You fail because you commit suicide. And I am sure no one is fond of failure. You got to be strong, and not be fragile.
An article on Jiah Khan’s suicide by Shobha De upset me in bits while she said “It’s yesterday once more. I didn’t know Jiah Khan. But that hardly matters.” I believe she is unaware of a thick line between forgetting a person and knowing a person. Having written couple of articles cum blogs on Jiah Khan, I am sure she doesn’t possess magical skills of writing sans knowing. Immediately after reading her article, I told my brother in state of disbelief that “Shobha De says she doesn’t know who Jiah Khan is.” and without a second pause he replies, “But who is Shobha De?” very earnestly. Wow! She has a long way to go to gain the recognition herself (by judging others). Well, if she thinks that statement could make her article an ace, I am speechless…
Seems like it is not the good time for the Indian entertainment industry, first the cricket ruckus, which broke million hearts, then the death of two young beautiful souls Abir Goswami followed by Jiah Khan and today Dr. Ashok Chopra bid adieu to the world at 12:30pm. It crashes me to even think about the bond being broken, a bond that matches none, which is as lovely, beautiful, attractive, gorgeous, exquisite, charming, divine, adorable, fetching, enchanting, comely, pleasant, agreeable, wonderful, delightful, superb, splendid and perfect as daughter-dad duo. Me, being a daughter who is most closest to her dad can understand how conked out must Priyanka Chopra be feeling on losing her piece of heart. May his soul rest in peace.
RIP Dr Ashok Chopra. You’ve given a wonderful gift to this world. You were, are and will remain a proud daddy forever and ever.
Below is the poem I’ve taken from a website which best cites a daughter’s vista:
Daddy’s little girl
Small but hard headed
just like him
She would try anything he done to be like him.
He would bring her outside and show her the tree’s and birds.
What life is outside the house!
As she grew she often wondered
why he done what he done.
As far as showing her what nature was.
But as life went on she under stood that life
is too short you have to learn each step
So it makes you stronger
and that way you have a heart for little things
Little things in life mean the world
to some people
you could buy everything you wanted
But there is a few things in life
you can not buy
Sometimes in life you have to teach people
to grow even if they are older
they still have to stop and think about little things in life
Let me know what you think about all these cases.
