"I thought it was stress, so I tried to distract myself by focusing on work, and surrounding myself with people, which helped for a while. But the nagging feeling didn't go away. My breath was shallow, I suffered from lack of concentration and I broke down often."

What's amazing is, that not only did she publicly confess her illness, she is really trying to bring about awareness about the taboo that depression has become, and has opened centers to help people who are battling with the same.

4. Sudha Chandran

Her inspiring story is proof that nothing can dampen your spirit if you are passionate and unwilling to be defeated. A highly talented dancer, Sudha, who the country knows for her famous character "Ramola" in a popular daily soap (we spent most of our childhood bearing the brunt of it!) lost her leg to a disastrous bus accident, followed by hospitalisation and ensuing negligence. She went on to become an inspiration for the country when she mastered classical dancing, despite being an amputee.
