36% of India is depressed and, on the other hand, we all go through moments of sadness, but when you are depressed you feel sad for weeks or months, instead of just a few days. Some people still think that depression is trivial and is not a genuine health condition. They are wrong Depression is a real disease with real symptoms, and it is not a sign of weakness or something that can "come out" when "coming together". When you have depression, it is more than feeling sad. Intense feelings of sadness and other symptoms, such as losing interest in the things you enjoy, may last for a while. Depression is a medical illness, not a sign of weakness. And it is treatable.
