चहरे की हंसी के पीछे ऎसा बहुत कुछ छुपा होता हैं जिसे हर कोई नहीं समझ सकता। प्रेक्षा का आखरी स्टेटस था-“सबसे बुरा होता हैं सपनों का मर जाना” हमें मेंटल हेल्थ के लिए उतना ही जागरूक होना होगा जितना कि हम फिजिकल हेल्थ के लिए होते हैं। हमारे “एम.पी.एस.डी.” परिवार की एक सदस्य अब नहीं रही। #RIPPrekshaMehta #artist #TheatreFamily #mpsdfamily #rip #sucide #mentalhealth
Preksha Mehta’s death is again a grim reminder of how the economic uncertainty due to coronavirus pandemic is affecting people. We hope that we tide through this phase at the soonest.
