Hello Our Dear Enthusiastic K-Way Readers!

The celebratory days that began with the 77th Independence Day on August 15th rolled into a bright, beautiful and buoyant week that culminated in a brilliant achievement that catapulted the country to an adventurous trajectory, orbit and mission.

An intelligent, imaginative, industrious, inventive and innovative INDIA initiated an inspired launch that later descended to an immaculate landing, on the South side of the moon, of Chandrayaan-3, on August 23rd, which made the world sit up and notice a resurgent and resourceful INDIA.

This is indeed a great moment to rejoice for all of us.

We celebrate this success, thankful to our ISRO scientists who engineered this proud moment and dedicated that to the nation.

The landing of Chandrayaan-3, a historical milestone, delivers to us the message that hard work always works!

Suicide Prevention Strategies for Children and Adolescents

6

Suicide is one of the top three causes of death among youth globally and it is one of the preventable adverse events medically and socially, especially in older children, adolescents and young adults.

But research says that they have a thorough understanding of death and suicide as early as grade 3, i.e., 8 years of age.
