Data show that at least 0.3 per cent of the Indian population suffers from bipolar disorder

Living with bipolar disorder is not easy. Many people do not understand this condition and why patients suffering from this disease experience discrimination. Urvashi Sarkar writes that the online bipolar disorder community in India is now trying to change these attitudes.

When Vijay Nalawala was 40, his family noticed that something was wrong.

“I’m suddenly happy, and then suddenly depressed. I wake up early in the morning and write very dark poetry. The fluctuations are usually very sharp and sudden,” he says.

Of course, this is not the first time Nalawala has started experiencing these symptoms at the age of 14.
