What happens when someone you love has demons they cannot tackle on their own? Do you look away? For how long? When you choose to help fight them, how far are you willing to go? What will the journey do for them? What will the journey do to you?
Don’t Call Her Crazy is a peephole into the life lived in the never-ending mess that is OCD. Taking you through the ordeal that the disease unleashed on an unsuspecting family, his family, Sagar explores the meaning of fear, shame, guilt, anger and ultimately, love.
In a journey spanning over 60 years of his grandma’s life, whom he lovingly calls Nani Lakshmibai after the 19th Century Indian queen, the book talks about what mental health can mean in a middle class household, how it gets ignored and avoided and how solutions are almost always available and yet never noticed.
