Besides gaining popularity for his show Baal Veer, actor Atul Verma’s theatre debut Mahabharat is also a huge hit. Talking about the same, he says, “I feel very blessed to be part of this show because here I am working with the old Mahabharat cast which is not less than a dream. I was born when the old Mahabharat was shot and guess was only 6-7 years old when I saw it. During my childhood days, I had never imagined or thought that one day I will perform with the same Duryodhan, Shakuni mama and guru Dronacharaya!”

 

The play has been directed by Puneet Issar. “Puneet sir as a director is beyond amazing. The way he treats his actors and the way he made us understand even the small nuances of acting and our characters is incredible. It was pure bliss getting to train under him for this play,” says Atul.

 

Acting in a play is no easy feat, says the actor. “The stage is really tough and different from camera acting as there are no retakes. There are more chances of improvisation, where you need to handle any unexpected situation but it’s fun to perform in front of 5000 people,” he adds.

In order to commemorate World Mental Health Day, Facebook Community Leadership Circles and Out A Loud, organised a panel discussion with imminent public figures and addressed the theme of suicide prevention,  deliberating over stress management for millennials. Actor Karan Singh Grover was the chief guest while the panelists included the likes of Neha Kare, RJ Archana Pania, Namrata Jain, Dr Mohit Shah and Dr Sitesh Roy.
   ” Our Mind is a Powerful and Beautiful thing but is hugely undermined and underrated by the society. We can see our body and take great care of it, but we can’t see our mind and so let it go unchecked, uncared for and unattended. As a Psychologist and Founder of Out A Loud, it’s my sincere request to everyone that it’s time we all pay attention to our Mental Health and Mental Wellness as much as we do for our Physical Health and Wellness.
Don’t Fight your Battle Alone … Seek Help if need be!!” Says Namrata Jain a Psychologist, TEDx Speaker and the Founder of Out A Loud
“Humans are social beings. We feel good when surrounded by friends, family, community in a supportive environment. Being a founder of Unimo Universe of Moms & a Facebook CLC lead for Mumbai City I have watched the community space very closely, community support can help you cope with your problems and encourage you as you work towards wellness. Make sure you have someone around with whom you can relate, it will reduce stress and boost your self-confidence. Remember, depression is a disease of loneliness,” says Neha Kare. 
Karan Singh Grover, who was also part of the panel, says, “All minds matter, especially the young ones, as they have a huge responsibility on their shoulders because they are the future. Everything starts with oneself. Bringing about a change in yourself will bring changes to your surroundings. If you’re happy, that adds to the collective well-being of the people around you. The first step in this river of change is to speak, accept and let go.”
Other celebrities who attended the event included Mreenal Deshraj, Riddhima Tiwari, Jaskaran Singh,  Malhar Pandya, Sambhabana Mohanty, Shweta Rohira, Kunal Thakur, Ansh Bagri, Ashish Trivedi, Rani Patel and Prakriti Nautiyal.

TV actors share Dusshera miracles!

TV actors share Dusshera miracles!

Dusshera signifies the victory of good over evil. TV actors share their experiences of this phenomenon.

Sanjay Gagnani: Dussehra is a reminder for everyone that good will always prevail and triumph over bad and evil. I’ve witnessed this myself in my personal life a lot of times. As they say, what goes around, comes around. What you sow, so shall you reap. It’s true! Whoever has done anything wrong or bad to me has somehow been taught by life. That’s when I realized that the universe plays an important role in balancing and Karma always pays. As they say, a good deed is never lost, we should keep doing good so that only good things would happen to us.

Rohitashv Gour: In my life, I have always felt that good will always triumph over evil, you see the truth losing but it doesn’t lose in reality. Something similar happened to my mother, things were against her but she was honest that circumstances changed and those people against her lost. The proverb is true that good wins over evil.

Amit Sarin: Such age-old phrases that are reflected through our festivals is the ultimate essence for us to remember and practice in our day to day life. ‘Good’ means the ability to empathize with other people, to feel compassion for them, and to feel for their needs as your own. It means, selflessness, and self-sacrifice towards a greater cause, all qualities which stem from a sense of empathy. “Evil” is being self-centered, self-absorbed, greedy, when one’s own needs and desires are paramount. So practicing these “GOOD “ virtues is the victory of “Good over Evil. Happy Dussehra.

Shridhar Watsar: During my college days, when I was in 11th standard, other boys were ragging me but I was internally stable. After a couple of days, those boys became my good friends this way I witnessed the miracle of good over evil.

Sachin Parikh: I must tell you that personally at every moment of my life I feel there is always a victory of good over evil. Everyone’s life is full of challenges and new struggles but the secret of a good and stress-free life is to remain evil free and positive in life. Life is a full circle and your karma will come back and hit your life sooner or later. So, I strongly believe in this miracle and apply to my day to day life.

Amal Sherawat: Very recently, an incident happened to me. I was finalized for a web series and was working hard for it. Someone else was trying to malign my image to make sure I am out of it and he gets the role. I was angry but I chose faith over negativity. I kept working hard on myself with a positive mind and eventually shot for the series. I believe if you don’t think bad for others, God will never let anything bad happen to you.

 

Avinash Mishra:  I have witnessed. There was a time when my family was going through a bad financial state because of some rivalry in the family. But my father never said anything to any of the other family members because he knew he was betrayed by his people. But as we say, there is always a victory of good over evil. My father got promoted in a bank and we shifted to another city and people who betrayed us lost all their money and business but my father still helped them.

Ashish Trivedi: Each of us has a vision of good and evil. We have to encourage people to move towards what they think is good. Everyone has his idea of good and evil and must choose to follow the good and fight evil as he conceives them. That would be enough to make the world a better place.

 

Rajesh Kumar:  There is nothing evil and good, the division between bad, good, ugly are all man-made. Your mind divides the world into good or bad, nothing is bad, everything has some purpose and beauty. There is no difference between an ant and a human being. For me, Dussehra is a movement from darkness to light, unawareness to awareness. Rally for River is the biggest example for me. I was unaware about the condition of the river, a tree that was the evil thing, which was there in me that I was unaware about the drastic changes which were happening in the climate, soil and nature. But after Rally for River, that evil changed into good and I jumped from acting and contributed a little bit towards ecological development and the betterment of the earth, planet and nature
