Let's talk - Depression......(a nice piece by Ninad Vengurlekar...)
"I was pained to read about the suicide of the depressed kid who killed himself by jumping off a hotel building. In the world of social media, he assumed that everyone except him, was doing exceedingly well for themselves & he was the only loser on earth. He probably posted about his suicide on social media, hoping to taste some success & become famous. He longed for success, but had to kill himself for it. Sadly, he did not live to see how famous he has become. I was moved by the news. In a life connected to smartphones, I believe youngsters need a reality check about what real life is, what success is, & how it can be achieved.

A phonetic alphabet is a list of words used to identify letters in a message transmitted by radio or telephone. Spoken words from an approved list are substituted for letters. For example, the word "Army" would be "Alfa Romeo Mike Yankee" when spelled in the phonetic alphabet. This practice helps to prevent confusion between similar sounding letters, such as "m" and "n", and to clarify communications that may be garbled during transmission.
An early version of the phonetic alphabet appears in the 1913 edition of The Bluejackets’ Manual. Found in the Signals section, it was paired with the Alphabetical Code Flags defined in the International Code. Both the meanings of the flags (the letter which they represent) …
