Twinkle Khanna’s Take On Teen Suicide Is Sure To Leave All Mothers Teary Eyed

You might be missing Twinkle Khanna in Bollywood films these days, but she is pretty active on social media, especially Twitter. Known for her witty and hilarious tweets, Twinkle has left no stones unturned in entertaining her fans.


Scroll through her Twitter account and you would find many kinds of discussions, all of which are subtle and to the point.

Apart from funny tweets, she also has that inborn talent of bringing serious issues to limelight in a very simple way, all thanks to her superb writing skills. Yes, this time she has penned down something which would bring tears to every mother’s eyes.

Being a great author and a dedicated mother of 2, Twinkle has highlighted the issue of rising suicide cases among teenagers.

In a write up ‘Drifting Kites’ which Twinkle wrote for a leading daily, she expressed grief over her family friend’s teenage son committing suicide.

She says

“A family friend has lost her young son. The young man, in his early 20s, went to America to attend a friend’s wedding, left a suicide note on Facebook and killed himself before anyone could reach him. I cannot even begin to imagine what his mother is going through. There is no pain greater than losing a child. You start worrying about these tiny beings — from the time they are in your stomach; from hearing their heartbeats on the sonogram and counting kicks in your last trimester — you begin your journey of worry. You worry about their health, their education, their careers, their spouses, their children… Worrying, but not really believing that one unlucky day your greatest fear may actually come true.”

Being a mother, Twinkle knows that children should be nurtured with care and shouldn’t be pressured for anything. She feels that every parent must accept the failure of children and support them instead of bothering and pressurizing them.

Twinkle adds

“We teach our children to study hard, to strive to succeed but do we teach them that it’s okay to fail? That life is about accepting yourself? That there is no stigma in seeking help? Our Indian culture is based on worshipping our parents. We grow up listening to words like respect, obedience and tradition. Can we not add the words communication, unconditional love and support to this list?”

These are some hard-hitting and practical things, which every parent would agree to, isn’t it? So what do you feel about this? Do let us know your comments in our comments section below.
