The book wouldn't come under self-help says the author. Dr Govind Sharma is a Medical Doctor who retired from the Indian Administrative Services in Feb 2016. No one could write a book like this which went deep into one of the trouble which our society is facing - SUICIDE.

Through this book, by weaving a short novel comprising three characters - Ajay, Karan and Nisha, the author has meticulously made it clear the main reasons for the cause of tendency to commit suicide and how it gets treated in the clinic.

The three protagonists comes from a different background but failed in their respective love life. I also came to know that there are six different reasons - 3 for men and 3 for women for causing the suicide and also came to know about Freud Analysis which would serve as an eye opener for any one and every one. With the tendency to commit suicide is on the rise and the Government of respective State and also from the Centre taking drastic steps to bring it down by establishing helpline, one of which is SNEHA which functions in Tamilnadu, this book would go a long way in saving some precious lives though the treatment and counselling is required to a greater extent.

A well written novel which ends on a happy note because this is what is expected when the affected approaches or gets referred to the clinic/helpline. Be the Change yourself and firmly believe that YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE, but if you do it right, ONCE IS ENOUGH....



The book is available on Amazon
