Abstract

“You were the chosen one” is a quote from the
2005 science fiction film Star Wars.
And I was told the same thing on my first day of
medical school that I have been chosen to get into this
college as many people dream of it but, our college, in
all its glory, ‘embraces’ a few of us; hence you see, “
the chosen ones “.
Once you step into the college, you find the medical
life welcoming you cordially. But soon you see the
amiable aura of this ‘mise en scene’ evaporating into
air and the first foe that you encounter is depression.
Depression is a mood disorder characterized by a sense
of inadequacy, despondency, decreased activity, pessimism,
anhedonia and sadness, where these symptoms
severely disrupt and adversely affect the person’s life.
This manuscript is not solely about the prevalence and
persistence of depression in medical undergraduates
or medical professionals but its more about how you
can tackle the aforementioned mental condition. Here
is a crucial question, why do you need to get rid of it at
your earliest convenience.
