Shadows in the Sun
- Healing from Depression and Finding the Light within
Beskrivelse: As a young girl in Bangalore, Gayathri was surrounded by the fragrance of jasmine and flickering oil lamps, her family protected by gods and goddesses. But as she grew older, demons came forth from dark corners of her idyllic kingdom-with the scariest creatures lurking within her tortured mind. Shadows in the Sun traces Gayathri's courageous battle with debilitating depression that consumed her from adolescence through marriage and a move to the United States. Her inspiring memoir provides a first-of-its-kind cross-cultural view of mental illness-how it is regarded in India and in America, and how she drew on both her rich Hindu heritage and Western medicine to find healing.
