Episode 9: Gaming Disorder

Who would have thought that games would one day be associated with a disorder? It used to be that games were synonymous with the absolute joy of spending time with your friends, the fields, running around and the beauty of getting tired. Then, digitalisation happened and the games shifted from the real fields to the virtual world. And then as young minds started exploring the world of games, we have arrived at a situation where ICD 11 has added Gaming Disorder to its list of ailments. Let’s find out from Dr Rupika Dhurjati and Dr Jatin Talwani about this modern-day problem as they join Dr Samir Parikh in this week’s episode.


Episode 8: Postpartum Depression

In this week’s episode, Dr Samir Parikh chats with Dr Rupika Dhurjati, Psychiatrist and Tara Mehta, Clinical Psychologist about postpartum depression. It’s a topic largely neglected in the conversation about mental health. Find out why it is so important, what can and needs to be done, and why mental health professionals now increasingly focus on peripartum mental health.


Episode 7: Urban Loneliness

Can I feel lonely in a crowd? Can loneliness actually affect my health? Has loneliness become a modern ailment? In this episode of Mind U, psychiatrist Dr Samir Parikh and clinical psychologist Kamna Chhibber - coauthors of Alone In The Crowd: Overcoming Loneliness of Urban Living - give us answers to these questions and more. So, listen up!


Episode 6: Mindful Urban Living

If we reflect on the way we live, especially in the urban areas - running here, running there; deadline here, deadline there; your gadgets, emails, notifications, daily chores; time for friends, for family, for self, for fun - all of it almost seems like a task. Constantly feeling rushed. How do I relax? How do I take that one breath for myself? And how do I manage - not just navigate - urban spaces? How do I bring a little bit of mindfulness into my life? And how do improve the quality of my life? Dr Samir Parikh and clinical psychologist Kamna Chhibber give us answers to these questions and more. So, listen up!


Episode 5: Toxic Relationships

In this instalment of The Mind Pod, join cognitive behavioural therapist Mimansa Singh Tanwar, clinical psychologist Kamna Chhibber and Dr Samir Parikh for a chat about relationships - sometimes negative experiences, or toxicity, as some psychologists call it, creeps in. Sometimes individuals are aware of it, sometimes they aren’t. And these toxic relationships then take a toll on individuals, families, and everyone involved. So what exactly is a toxic relationship? How are these boundaries crossed? How does one know they are in a toxic relationship? What is the communication pattern in such relationships? Answers to these, and many other important questions in this episode.


Episode 4: Parenting - Bullying

Hardly anything would matter to us than the well-being of our children. Join us for a chat between Dr Samir Parikh and Mimansa Singh Tanwar, clinical psychologist, on how as parents we deal with bullying experiences our children face.

Episode 3: Work-life Balance

In this episode, Divya Jain, Counselling and Sports Psychologist, joins Dr Samir Parikh for a very important conversation - work-life balance. Indeed, it would be hard to find one person who didn’t wish they could better balance their personal and professional lives. And it has only become more and more prominent as our lives have become more digital, which has led to work entering your home more easily. So, listen and learn easy ways to regain this balance.
