Life savers at Sahai

In Bangalore, there is a dedicated suicide helpline that you can call and hope to find a friendly, helpful voice that gives you hope, courage and strength. To take that one step backward, turn around and face life square in the face. And that helpline is called “Sahai”.

I was talking to Anita Gracias, who also sits by the phone at Sahai as one of their special volunteers. She is ready to answer the phone and listen – as if someone’s life depended on it. She will then forge a relationship with a voice that cries out for help; and gently take it from darkness, to the light at the end of the tunnel.

There’s a lot of good work they do there, so I requested Anita to answer a few questions that could raise awareness levels among people. Hopefully, this interview will get people to work as volunteers as well.

The interview is a long post so I have hosted it at this link.
