Stars at Anjali Chhabria’s book launch


Bollywood actresses Shabana Azmi, Waheeda Rehman and Raveena Tandon graced the launch of psychiatrist Anjali Chhabria’s book, Death is not the answer in Mumbai recently. It was indeed a starry affair with the stars around.

Anjali read out excerpts from different chapters of the novel. Also present were actors Kunickaa Sadanand Lall, Ila Arun and Suresh Oberoi who also came to root for the author.

Death is not the answer deals with the causes of suicides in the country. India is the world’s suicide capital with over 2. 6 lakh cases reported every year. More than 50 per cent of all those who attempt suicide tell someone about their intention.

From insights into the mind of a suicidal patient and understanding why one is driven to suicide to the right kind of intervention when suicide has been attempted and a list of suicide hotlines, this book seeks to help thousands who are questioning the motive of their lives.
