TV ac­tor Vi­vian Dsena (right), who has starred in shows such as Pyaar Kii Yeh Ek Ka­haani and Mad­hubala, is the lat­est celeb who has spo­ken up on the alarm­ing rise of the Blue Whale chal­lenge in In­dia.

The num­ber of emo­tion­ally dis­traught young­sters en­gag­ing in the online game, which en­cour­ages play­ers to com­plete 50 dan­ger­ous tasks and com­mit sui­cide by the end of the chal­lenge, is in­creas­ing, and Vi­vian is sad­dened by it.

“The most im­por­tant thing I want to tell such dis­turbed young peo­ple, who take the ex­treme step of com­mit­ting sui­cide, is that you don’t have the right to fin­ish the life that you were given by some­one else,” says the 29-year-old.

While some re­sort to such ad­ver­si­ties for the thrill, failed re­la­tion­ships has also been one of the pri­mary rea­sons. Here’s a piece of ad­vice from Vi­vian.

“If end­ing one’s life was a so­lu­tion for life’s prob­lems, then the whole world would be stand­ing on the high­way! If you can’t fight, you’re chal­leng­ing your fam­ily’s up­bring­ing, be­cause of all the things, your par­ents would never have taught you that this is how you deal with prob­lems,” he says.

The ac­tor adds that not los­ing hope is what mat­ters the most. “Things might seem bleak now, but there’s al­ways a ray of light which you can see only af­ter the dark­ness,” adds Vi­vian.
