The blame game and accepting responsibility

The Blame Game and Accepting Responsibilty

Who or What is causing your problems?

When people fail, they often blame someone else for their failure. People
blame others when they do poorly at work. Blame is also used to justify
personal problems.

When you blame someone or something else, you actually make yourself weak
and ineffective. You make yourself "effect" instead of being the "cause" of
the situation. You give power to the person or thing you blame.

"Blaming something else makes that something else cause; and as that cause
takes on power, the individual in the same act loses control and becomes

For example, you lost a business contract and you blame your assistant. You
are making your assistant more powerful than you. You might say, "My
assistant messed up the appointment, "which is just another way of saying,
"My assistant determines if I succeed or fail in keeping an appointment."

If you take responsibility, you would say, "I need to train my assistant so
he doesn't make mistakes".

As another example, you might blame someone’s behavior for your stress and
anxiety. This makes that person behavior responsible for your feelings. If
you say, "That person ruined my mood," you are actually saying, "That person
is so powerful that he can control my emotions."

If you wish to succeed in life, you have to end the blame game and accept
responsibility for yourself. You only get ahead when you become "cause" over
the situation and not the “effect".
best wishes and have a great time,

Every time Smita Shinde, 18, a Class 12 commerce student, takes a stroll in the society garden or talks to her friend over the phone, her over-anxious neighbour lectures her on how her friends “will outdo her in the upcoming board exams if she continues to while away her time”. “Such neighbours fal
l under the ‘delete’ category and students should steer clear of this over-anxious lot,” said Dr Harish Shetty, social psychiatrist, who conducts workshops for board exam students on ‘How to deal with parents and over-anxious relatives’. Dr Shetty, who has been associated with students for the past 20 years, said that parents and relatives’ anxieties can be contagious and could have a negative impact on a vulnerable student.

“We screen clippings from Bollywood films, recite poems, narrate real life stories, and play interesting memory games, to make the children understand that their parents’ anger and anxiety is only a form of their love,” added Dr Shetty.

The spate of suicides in the city last year prompted Dr Shetty to organise a special workshop this year on ‘preventing suicides’.

Both students and their parents are encouraged to sit through the sessions.

“Optimism is the bottom line, while dealing with children who are bogged down by both, academic and societal pressure,” said Dr Shetty. “We explain the need for them to make it big in life, attend college, and have a girlfriend/boyfriend.”

Dr Anonna Guha, a sociologist and counsellor with Nrityanjali Education Services, has been organising daily non-academic workshops for stressed students. “We begin with breathing techniques and exercises, before moving on to instructing the students on organised study patterns,” said Dr Guha.

“During the two-hour session, we help prepare personalised time tables depending on everyone’s daily routine; encourage them to pursue their hobbies even during their exams; and most importantly, have a question-answer session, making sure that their minds are uncluttered,” she added. To reach out to parents, who feel stressed owing to their children’s disinterest towards their books, Dr Fabian Almeida, psychiatrist and counsellor, has outlined a plan, centered on audio-visual techniques.

“At our workshops, we use a mix of interesting visuals between lectures as well as, teach pranayams and asanas, to ensure a holistic development of the parents and children,” said Dr Almeida, who has

conducted more than a thousand workshops in a career spanning ten years.

Exam tension fever hits HSC students Anahita Mukherji , TNN, Feb 19, 2011

Exam tension fever hits HSC students
Anahita Mukherji , TNN, Feb 19, 2011, 05.31am IST

MUMBAI: With HSC examinations scheduled to begin on Tuesday, general practitioners across the city are being inundated with calls from worried parents, whose children are suffering from stress. This kind of stress can plague both body and mind. From fainting and nausea to back and neck pain, students gearing up for their board examinations have begun exhibiting a whole range of physical ailments. More often than not, their medical reports, however, show they are in perfect health.

Now, many doctors have begun referring final-year students suffering from examination stress to psychiatrists and counsellors. There is a whole branch of psychology that deals with pain disorders. "There have been cases where students are admitted to hospital with severe pain, but their reports show that there is nothing wrong with them physically,'' says clinical psychologist Seema Hingorrany. She recently treated a student with a learning disability, who was so afraid of sitting for the board examinations, that she developed severe pain in her limbs. Her orthopaedic doctor gave her a clean bill of health. But when her symptoms continued, she was referred for psychological treatment.

During this exam period, Hingorrany receives calls from many parents who are worried about their children's coping mechanisms. One child kept suffering from fainting cells due to the stress, she said. Other symptoms include vomiting and stomach pain. It's also not uncommon for students to complain of "ankle pain", which doctors say can be entirely psychosomatic.

Around exam time, development paediatrician Dr Samir Dalwai observes a rise in immunologically-mediated diseases such as asthma as well as skin allergies. Counsellor Sonal Sethna has seen students with palpitation, skin rashes as well as digestive problems. Psychiatrists have also found students turning into hypochondriacs during the examination season. "I recently treated a boy who suffered from severe vomiting and told me he thought he had stomach cancer. He had read somewhere that stomach tumours cause vomiting,'' said Hingorrany.

Dr Harish Shetty, president of the Counsellor's Association of India, says that symptoms such as headaches, nausea and vomiting are seen in students of all ages appearing for any examination. "At times, exam-related stress aggravates existing physical ailments. The somatic symptoms vanish when the feelings are verbalized. Sometimes depression manifests itself in the form of aches and pains,'' he said.

Counsellors and teachers have urged parents not to burden their children with their own stress and anxiety. Hingorrany feels that such physical symptoms are often found in the children of overly anxious mothers, many of whom suffered similar physical ailments when they themselves were young.

‘At The Crossroads’ a film directed by Ipshita Maitra

About the film…

At the Crossroads follows the story of Meera, a woman admitted into a public hospital for attempted suicide. A concerned nurse, who believes Meera to be a survivor of domestic violence, introduces her to Dilaasa, a hospital based crisis center, that works on mitigating abuse by identifying and helping women who come to the hospital to treat various health issues that result from domestic violence. With the counselor’s help, Meera learns to handle her situation and make a fresh start. At the Crossroads focuses on the important role that health care professionals can play in stemming domestic violence. Since hospitals are often the first refuge for abused women, the steps that a health care professional takes can have a marked impact on situations involving familial or spousal abuse. The film also emphasizes the counselor’s role in helping transform the lives of survivors of domestic violence.

How to cope with Exam stress, Midday, 14 feb 2011

How to cope with exam stress
By: Poornima Swaminathan Date: 2011-02-14 Place: Mumbai

With final examinations looming large, anxiety about being unprepared is beginning to creep into students once again. MiD DAY offers a few tips to keep yourself from panicking

THE time of the year that students dread the most is upon us once again. If you are suddenly feeling the heat, are restless and can't sleep at night, you are not alone.

You, like your batchmates and most people your age, are feeling the exam pressure.

"Most of our callers call us in a state of panic. They either fear failure or have not finished studying all that is in their syllabus," said a volunteer from the helpline Aasra.

According to experts, the anxiety of having to give an exam gets to most students particularly those who are unprepared. The best way to deal with it is to not panic and take stock of the situation.

They also have a word of caution for parents, who they advise to refrain from pressurising their children too much.

For those getting ready to give an exam and who feel unprepared, know that you can get back on track through a little bit of planning and revising what you already know.

The moment you panic, you are likely to forget even the things you know.

Here's what you can do to keep your cool and do well in your exams:

1. Plan: Prepare a study chart, keeping in mind the things you have left out but are important in the syllabus. Once you have chalked out the plan, follow it strictly.

2. Be realistic: While preparing the study chart, make sure you set achievable targets for yourself. Excessive optimism or enthusiasm may eventually lead to frustration.

3. Make notes: The benefits of making notes while studying are twofold: you will retain more knowledge when you write and the notes will help in last-minute revision.

4. CLEAR your doubts: Ask your teachers or friends to clear doubts you have in subjects. Not doing so may lead to a loss of confidence.

5. Revise: There are many ways you can revise subjects you have already studied. If you are bored of reading the textbooks, take to revising by writing the stuff you know. You can also revise by discussing the subject in a group.

6. Stay positive: Avoid everything which makes you think negatively about your preparation for the exams. Negative thinking will dent all the confidence you've gained and result in exam stress.

7. Eat right: Eat food which is rich in vitamins and protein like green vegetables, fruits, cereals, eggs and chapatis. Avoid oily and junk food during exams. Proper nutrition is essential for the brain to perform optimally. Avoid bingeing on coffee or tea to keep you awake.

8. Sleep well: Sleeping for a minimum of seven hours helps retain what you've studied during the day and keeps you fresh.

Miscellaneous tips:

Whenever you stick to your plan for the day, do something you like. Treat yourself to a little bit of fun. It'll help you stay focused on your timetable.

For those of you who like silence when you're studying, find a secluded room in your house

For those who like music, you can listen to it when you're solving mathematical or accounting problems

Keep a bottle of water on your desk and drink regularly to hydrate the brain. Try to keep fizzy drinks to a minimum.

In Kerala Suicide runs in the entire family, Ananthakrishnan G, TNN

In Kerala, suicide runs in the entire family
Ananthakrishnan G, TNN, Feb 13, 2011, 06.06am IST

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The average Malayali is famously private but might this unwillingness to let it all hang out be the reason for Kerala's frightening statistical success at family suicide? An abnormally high number of families commit suicide, together, in the state. Family suicide is defined as the dominant person in the family killing the others before doing away with themselves. Sometimes , it features a suicide pact among family members.

A study by the Kerala State Mental Health Authority (KSMHA) says that 39 of every 100 family suicides reported across India, take place in God's own country. The study has just been endorsed by Kerala's Economic Review 2010, which was tabled in the assembly. In 2009, there were 13 family suicides in Kerala, which totalled 38 deaths.

Kerala also has the highest rate of individual suicide in India, after Sikkim. In 2009, suicide accounted for nearly 40% of all deaths in Sikkim, in Kerala it was 25%.

Why is this so? Most Malayalis blame "family trouble" . They are somewhat in tune with the rest of the nation . The national average of suicide caused by "family trouble" is 23.7%; while in Kerala it was 40.2%.

Unsurprisingly, the state's mental health authority expressed concern about rising family discord. Its study said,

"In Kerala, the basic economic and social needs have been taken care of but emotional and other forms of pressure take their place, sometimes with lifethreatening effects."

Rajesh Pillai, director of the Kochibased NGO Maithri, which offers emotional support to the suicide-prone , corroborates the findings . "The calls that we receive suggest most suicides are triggered by relationship troubles," he says. At least some of this is brought on by the typical Malayali's unwillingness to talk about his problems and that's on account of his ego, Pillai adds.

But there is more. The spurt in suicide is also driven by weakening social institutions such as the family , rising divorce rates, unemployment , alcoholism, violence against women and children and consumerism . Taken together, this
cocktail can push people into debt and depression and eventually suicide.

But D Rau, secretary of the KSMHA, explains it differently. "That is the police's way of explaining the problem. In clinical cases, most suicides are a result of mental illness. At least one of the parties will have some form of psychological problem ," he says.

Studies on the social impact of suicide on Kerala society have thrown up an alarming fact. Most people who end their lives do so in their most productive years — between the ages of 30 and 45. Their dependents find themselves abandoned and vulnerable to the same escape route.

The other statistic, which has not yet been analysed in detail, is failed suicide attempts. According to Pillai , while 24 people on average commit suicide in Kerala every day, the number of attempted suicides is at least 10 to 15 times higher. "Many cases are not reported because the families would rather that hospitals write them off as accidents," he says.

KSMHA data did show a decline in the rate of suicide in Kerala over a longer period — between 2003 and 2009 — from 30.8 persons per lakh to 25.5 per lakh. But, compared to 2008, suicide rose in 2009 at the rate of 0.3 persons per lakh.

Kerala's suicide chart also illustrates the theory that money can't buy happiness with Malappuram, which is at the lower end of the human development index, recording the fewest cases.

for higher grades in the academic subjects. This is the second year that the CBSE will be employing the continuous comprehensive evaluation (CCE) system where students will be awarded grades based on their performance through the year on academic and co-curricular parameters.

Students will receive grades in life skills, attitudes and values, co-curricular activities and health and physical education, which will then be converted into points. A student can score a maximum of 42 points in these subjects in total. “Those students who get total grade points (for co-curricular activities) in the range of 34 to 42 may benefit by getting upgraded to the next higher grade in two subjects in scholastic areas,” said the circular. “Those students who get total grade points in the range 19 to 33 may benefit by getting upgraded to the next higher grade in one subject in scholastic areas.”

The benefit of the upgrade will be extended to the subject that a student scores the lowest grade in. “These are skills that schools have always been assessing, but now they have put out the grading system for it in black and white,” said Indu Mathur, principal of Apeejay School in Kharghar. “It depends on schools to follow it sincerely, which I think most of them will do.”

Tring, tring…. May I help you?

Stuck in a problem, puzzle or puddle, helplines claim to be of assistance at any point of time. Is that a fact or a just another farce? Speak Up explores

Help is just a phone call away, say helplines. From cops to counsellors, everyone is available for immediate aid through this facility. However, most people DNA spoke to seem averse to using this option. The key problem that was repeatedly stated was lack of awareness regarding their existence. There were others who were happy about their existence, but wary of using their services due to a multitude of reasons.
Psychiatrist, Dr Bharat Shah says it is because we are a close-knit society. "We usually approach our closed ones for help and frown at speaking to strangers regarding our problems." On the same note, Seema Hingorrany, psychiatrist, says, "People have a mental block regarding opening up to strangers. Further, adults resist calling a helpline, feeling that they can handle their own problems." On another note, she adds, "Teens usually prefer to speak to their peers over adults, believing that grown-ups would not empathise with them."
Shah feels that the concept of using a helpline is still alien in our society. "The advertisement invariably being in English does not do much for creating awareness," he adds.

On the other hand, Vinay Somani, trustee, Karmayog, says that different categories of helplines see different responses.

“For instance, a helpline for a specific cause, like one for students, would be used most during exam time,” he says. The concern is about resources. “Apart from professional volunteers, helplines also require a lot funding and technical support, which is not always available. This influences their productivity negatively,” he adds.

DNA spoke to a few helplines and here are the excerpts:

Railway Helpline
(for any emergency) — 23004000
DNA: A man has entered into the ladies compartment and seems drunk
Helpline: Slow or fast train?
DNA: Slow
Helpline: And which station are you on right now?
DNA: The train just crossed Santa Cruz
Helpline: Okay, I will immediately send someone.
(We revealed our identity, here)

Anti-Ragging Helpline
DNA: Is this the anti-ragging helpline?
Helpline: Yes. How can we help?
DNA: I have just moved to XYZ hostel and my seniors have been troubling me. They abuse me and some of my things have also been missing. I don’t understand what to do. I am afraid if I complain to the warden, they will make sure I am thrown out.
Helpline: Ma’am, what is your name?
DNA: I’m A
Helpline: Okay A, would you like to register a complaint with us?
DNA: How does that work?
Helpline: We will need some information — victim’s name, address, college’s name…in your case, your hostel’s information. After that you will receive a complaint ID within 15 to 24 hours. And we will pass on your complaint to higher officials like your college principal, your area’s SP, etc.
DNA: No, no… these seniors are from my college. They will harass me there also.
Helpline: A, please stop crying, there is no need to panic. We are here to help you out. Your identity will not be revealed to anyone.
(Feeling assured, we let out our secret)

Theft Helpline
DNA: Is this the theft helpline?
Helpline: Yes
DNA: There has been a theft in my PG. My laptop and rent money is missing.
Helpline: Call 100
DNA: But isn’t this the theft helpline?
Helpline: We only look into emergencies like fire, accidents etc. Call the police. (Hangs up!)

Aasra Helpline
(for people in despair) — 27546669
DNA: My parents are pressuring me to get more than 95% in my Std X board exams
Helpline: How much are you expecting from yourself?
DNA: Around 70%
Helpline: Are you sure you can score that much?
DNA: Yes
Helpline: Then why do your parents want you to get more than 95%?
DNA: That’s because everyone else in my family is either a doctor or an engineer and they want me to pursue the same fields.
Helpline: Do you want to become a doctor or an engineer?
Helpline: Have you told this to your parents?
DNA: Yes, but they insist on it.
Helpline: Talk to your parents and explain to then what you want to do. If they still don’t understand then we can talk to them.
DNA: You’ll talk to them?
Helpline: Yes. If you want us to, then we will and we’ll try to solve the problem. Now concentrate on your studies and don’t worry about the percentage.

Maitra Helpline
(Institute of Psychological Health) — 25385447
DNA: Can I speak to you about a personal problem I have?
Helpline: Yes, please
DNA: I am expecting a baby right now. My in-laws want a son and they keep pestering me.
Helpline: But that is not in your hands…speak to your husband
DNA: He is very brash with me.
Helpline: Is this your first baby?
DNA: Yes
Helpline: Why don’t you go to your parents’ place for a while? You will be going there for your delivery, right?
DNA: My husband will not send me, says it’s too expensive.
Helpline: Speak to your parents
then. Tell them to come and get you. It’s very important that you are mentally relaxed. Also speak to your doctor, tell her to explain it to your husband.
DNA: My husband will be angry if I speak to the doctor behind his back.
Helpline: Tell your doctor to talk to him tactfully. And it is good that you called us. Feel free to call anytime you need any help.

Two years ago, when she was one of the principals assigned to man the CBSE helpline, Avnita Bir got a call from a distressed Class 10 CBSE student. He said he had not attempted questions worth 15 marks in his English exam and that this was affecting his preparation for the next few papers. He wanted
Ads by Google
to study engineering and was worried he wouldn’t make it to one of Kota’s several residential coaching institutes.

“All he needed was some reassurance, so I told him to study 15% extra for each of his next papers and to try and get 15 marks extra in the remaining exams,” said Avnita Bir, principal of RN Podar School, Santacruz.

Two weeks ago the boy called Bir again. He had made it to Kota and is now preparing to give his Class 12 exam.

“He reminded me of how he had called me two years ago and how he had come a long way since then, and that he was grateful for that one call he made to me,” said Bir.

“It was so touching.”

This year, the 24-hour helpline operated by the CBSE board became functional on February 1 and gets up to 200 a day.

“While a majority of calls pertain to examination related queries, around 80 per day are stress related, which are transferred to school principals, psychologists and trained counsellors,” said Rama Sharma, CBSE board’s public relations officer.

The state board helpline for SSC and HSC students will become operational on February 25.

“Due to the rule that children cannot be detained till the Class 8, children can feel stressed with the sudden pressure of board exams when they enter Class 9. Helplines can help address subject doubts and stress issues,” said Swarna Venkat, former principal of Srimati MD Bhatia High School, Ghatkopar.

Parents and students have also turned to helplines such as Aasra, Childline and the Vandrevala Foundation.

“There is a surge in calls just before and after the board exams and once the results are announced,” said Johnson Thomas, director of Aasra, which runs a 24-hour helpline for crisis intervention.

“I advise parents not to evaluate their children only on their marks,” said Dr Henal Shah, president of the Bombay Psychiatric Society.
