I was a very proactive student in my childhood and still am. I have participated in All India Boxing tournament, have been an active member of social organizations since my teens and have donated my hair for cancer patients as well. This tells that mental illness can creep up to people who always seem proactive, just like any other physical illness. I was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder 2 and PTSD in 2019. Slowly, after my recovery process I shared my mental health story on Roadies Revolution 2020 inspiring many others. I am also a survivor of harassment but I fought and I am still fighting like a warrior. I thank all my friends and family members but first I thank myself, as I took the initiative to seek help when I needed it the most.
