800 defence personnel died by suicide in last 7 years!

  • How can mentally vulnerable soldiers protect the public? Since the defence personnel are not doing spiritual practice they are not aware ‘how to face overcome adverse situations and remain stable’. They therefore resort to such extreme steps!
  • A major drawback of modern education is that does not possess a concrete solution to prevent suicides. There is a dire need for Indians to start doing spiritual practice!
