This pandemic brought about confinement. And the confinement brought on helplessness. And the helplessness brought on depression and anxiety. Watch as Malishka performs a monologue-cum-spoken word that brings to life these emotions and sheds light on what it's like to live with depression. ‘When you long to be seen and saved, but can’t extend your hand when offered, when you want to leave your house even if it’s just for an hour, but get tired after just that thought, and when you want red but choose yellow.’ Malishka’s piece "Good Enough" combines a few of her favorite things – talking about mental health, writing, and being able to express herself creatively.

Malishka Kannamwar, a student at PPS International Junior College, Mumbai, has studied speech and drama at Raëll Padamsee's ACE for many years. She is thoroughly passionate about psychology and writing, as is exemplified by her accolades in the field.

It is easy to see how driven and capable she is, and her enthusiasm which is especially infectious. Malishka isn't afraid to give new things a shot, and if she puts her mind to it, she can excel at anything that fancies her! She did speech and drama at Raëll Padamsee's ACE for many years, and few of her favorite things to do are talking about mental health, writing and being able to express herself creatively. Ultimately, Malishka aims to spread as much awareness about important world affairs as she can through the creative arts.
