Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

This picture of Saagar was taken while on hoilday at Wadi Rum in Jordan in 2013. A keen linguist at heart, Saagar was studying French and Arabic at University. He wanted to live in Jordan for a few months in his third year so as to be able to practise the language.

Saagar is 20 years of age. He is a handsome young man with great potential. He loves to laugh and make everyone laugh. He likes to cook for his friends. His food is quite spicy but he likes it that way. Aside from being an accomplished linguist he is a gifted cricketer, percussionist and actor. Most of all, he has time for everyone. He listens. He is kind and sensitive.

He is my son. 

In the summer of 2014 he was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. His illness was confusing and painful for us but most of all for him. He did everything he could to handle it but in the end he lost.  He ended his life on the 16th of October 2014. He didn't make it to his 21st birthday or to third year at University.

We used to go for long walks together. I shall be walking this route with him. I hope together we will be able to do everything we can to halt this silent epidemic of suicide.
