Kannada Industry Sensation and Former Big Boss Kannada contestant Jayashree Ramaih was found dead in her house on Monday. She was found hanging in a room at her residence. The actress was battling with depression for a long time. In a county where mental illness is not taken seriously and talking about this still is considered a “taboo”, another victim of mental illness and depression left the world. Last year itself, the unfortunate suicide of Sushant Singh Rajput made us all realize the importance of discussing mental depression but sadly nothing much seems to be changing. The dead body has been sent for post-mortem meanwhile the police investigation has been started to probe the cause of the suicide or death.
Ramaih had talked about her depression in the last year
Ramaih made headlines last year on 22nd July, 2020 with her Facebook Post. The actress had posted “I quit. Goodbye to this world and depression.” However the actress was quick to delete the post and posted a new update saying she is alright and safe and thanked her fans for all the love. However, again on 25th July, she talked about her depression in an ongoing live streaming on the social media. The actress asserted that she is not doing all this for the sake of publicity. She revealed that she has been going through a lot of personal issues. She said that she is only expecting her death as she is unable to fight with the depression.
People need to be more open to talk about depression
Jayashree was born in Bangalore and was raised by her mother after losing her father at a young age. She obtained graduate degree from Surana College. The actress came into limelight after she participated in the third season of Big Boss Kannada Season. She made her acting debut with the movie Uppi Huli Khara in 2017. It is so unfortunate that in our county no one talks about mental illness and depression in a healthy way. People seem to make fun about the people who go through some sort of depression. It is high time we should start taking care of every people near us and offer them emotional help when needed.
