There are a few things we don’t like to talk about as Indians. Sex. Rape. Dowry. Mental health. These are spoken, if at all, in hushed whispers. If we can’t speak about it loudly, we imply it. But it’s definitely not dinner table conversation. And that’s what inspired this video about mental health. Also, the fact that a company in Mumbai is offering services where you can rent a boyfriend to ‘cure’ mental illness.

And when you talk about mental health in India, it’s crazy what kind of advice comes your way. Everything from ‘not being sad’ to ‘eating fruits’ is peddled to you as an anti-dote for depression.

In this video, we take a look at the funny things we have heard from Indian society on depression.
