A man digs a mother's grave, bringing the body home

Emotional and mental health are important because they affect your thoughts, habits, and emotions and are an integral part of your life. Emotional well-being can improve productivity and efficiency in careers such as work, education, and care. It helps you adjust to changes in your life and manage stress, which is important for the quality of your relationships and has tragic consequences when life is not taken seriously. The WHO also predicted that about 7.5 percent of Indians will have a mental illness and that by the end of this year, about 20% of Indians will have a mental illness. According to statistics, 56 million Indians suffer from depression, and another 38 million suffer from anxiety disorders.

A man suffering from mental illness was sitting beside her mother's womb for ten months and countless hours. He figured he'd need water, so he drilled a conduit near where he was lying. He didn't want it to get wet, so when it rained, he lifted the white rice sacks over the grave, much to the surprise of the neighbors and family. It didn't matter that her mother, who was 65 at the time, died in February. He had one unshakable, unchangeable explanation for everybody who questioned him or attempted to stop him. She was his mother, after all. During those 10 months, he attempted to reintroduce her below and began excavating his own grave. Every time a local came in, they came to a halt. Until December 24th, when he finally did.

People passing down the street in Kunnam village, Tamil Nadu district, Perambalur, later that morning noticed a strong, terrible stench emanating from a 38-year-old child's one-bedroom residence. They complained to the Tamil Nadu police command center. "By the time we arrived, the neighbors had removed her out of the house, but no one knew why they smelt it," the investigating officer, who did not want to be identified, said.

They complained to the Tamil Nadu police command center. "By the time we arrived, the neighbors had removed her out of the house, but no one knew why they smelt it," the investigating officer, who did not want to be identified, said.

When the crew arrived at the residence, they discovered his mother's body imprisoned in the same room, covered in old scissors and flags. They rapidly stripped off their garments, discovering a plethora of bones and skin that had rotted away and vanished. Even back then, he objected. He refused to take her and insisted that she was his mother. We comforted him until his family was able to remove him from the house and retrieve his body, said a police officer.

The 65-year-old widow died in February of this year, 16 years after her husband, owing to age-related issues, according to an inquiry. Her mother was the primary caretaker for the whole period, and the 38-year-old has been on mental-health medication for the past ten years.

The guy had never worked before, and since his mother, sisters, and daughters, who lived nearby, died, they had been feeding him three meals a day, according to authorities. My mother supported the couple by working on a farm until she died.

After taking the body from the residence and conducting a post-mortem examination, police authorities burnt him on Sunday at a different graveyard in Perambalur. We didn't want to take him to one place and burn him because he would keep coming back. When we took her to the police station for questioning, she asked where her mother was because she had seen us take her, the officer explained.

Reports of the event had circulated on social media, according to Ramesh Karuppaiya, a social activist in Perambalur, and may contribute to the "mob" the guy was confronting. The man's main responsibility was his mother, who lacked social assistance. There is little awareness of mental health problems, and there are no resources available to help. I'm afraid she'll be possessed by a demon again. "The police must ensure that you receive further counseling and that you consult with a neuropsychiatric specialist in order to prevent discrimination," Karuppaiya said.

Officials claimed a case under Section 174 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (in which the police will investigate and report suicide) has been started. They persisted, though, on receiving her mental health treatment. "We want to petition to the court to have him committed to the Chennai Institute of Mental Health," stated an unnamed regional police official. After following a post-mortem examination, police officers cremated her on Sunday at a different cemetery in Perambalur after collecting her remains from the residence.
