The celebrity whirlpool 23.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Nearly a week into their most recent therapeutic reunion, Michael Phelps and Grant Hackett, two giants of Olympic swimming, sat down to breakfast at a packed restaurant and wondered how they would explain themselves to their children someday. The conversations they foresaw had nothing to do with Phelps' record-shattering medal haul or with Hackett's defiance of debilitating illnesses during a decade-long dominance of the 1,500-metre freestyle, the most grueling event in the pool, that earned him the nickname Captain Courageous from his fellow Australians. They were reliving dark moments, times when they posed a danger to themselves and others. Phelps, 32, imagined the day when his toddler son, Boomer, would refer to one of those low points: "You were going 86 miles an hour in a 45-mile zone. Why can't I?" Hackett, 37, laughed ruefully and told Phelps he had already spoken with a child psychologist about how to guide his 8-year-old twins through the shambles of his post-swimming life.

Shattering silence 16.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Whilst many ailments of the body, including serious ones, are discussed openly, if there is one that is never spoken of, or even if so, in hush-hush terms, it is mental illness. Time and again, the media picks up stories of people beset by serious mental health issues being shackled in chains and hidden away, as the family does not know how to deal with the problem nor wishes to bring it to public attention. In the light of this aura of secrecy, the author, Anna Chandy, is to be lauded for her courage in writing about her own pain and trauma, as she does battle with depression and comes out a winner. Anna is the first certified training and supervising transactional analyst from Asia. She is the Chairperson of the board of trustees of The Live Love Laugh Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation, founded by actor Deepika Padukone, which works in the area of depression. Deepika has provided a very honest foreword to this book, in which she touches upon her problems with clinical depression and how the ...
