Thank goodness I had friends to help me out. Biswa Kalyan Rath quietly transitioned through a number of vocations over the years before finding his footing and finding happiness. 

Now, however, he wants to make sure that no one going through a difficult time feels totally alone in life and ends up turning to extreme measures like suicide.

It is an extremely natural result of the type of society we have. He continued by explaining that failure in any area of life is not an indicator of how well you are doing overall.
