    During my last visit to Ullal, i saw a lone police woman at the northern side of bridge. The bored policewoman looking at the passing traffic, her facial expression said it all: what the heck i am doing or supposed to do???

    nowadays cause of suicide is lack of money or excess money. no jobs/business,. hence daily living is not possible. after demonetisation, income tax raids, gst etc creating headaches.

    Too many suicidals in the recent past whether they are prepared for meeting eternity or not.

    Very useful beautiful prayer available on the net To LIVE.

    Crusade Prayer (45) Prayer to conquer negative thoughts.

    O Jesus, I know very little about You, but please help me to open my heart to allow You to come into my soul, so that You can heal me, comfort me, and fill me with Your Peace.
    Help me to feel joy, to conquer all negative thoughts, and to learn the way to make me understand how to please You, so that I can enter Your New Paradise, where I can live a life of love, joy and wonder with You, forever and ever.

    If unsuccessful, consoling prayer for their loved ones to pray for the souls departed.

    If you have to face death or if a loved one has to face death then always turn to Me, your Jesus, to help. When you do I will lift you in spirit, wipe away your tears, banish all fear from your hearts when you recite this prayer.

    Crusade Prayer (142) Preparing for death
    My dearest Jesus, forgive me my sins. Cleanse my soul and prepare me to enter Your Kingdom.
    Grant me the Graces to prepare for my unification with You. Help me to overcome any fear.
    Grant me the courage to prepare my mind and my soul, so that I am fit to stand before You.
    I love You. I trust in You. I give You myself in body, mind and soul for eternity. Let Your Will be mine and release me from pain, doubts or confusion. Amen.

    Better rename ullal bridge to coffee day bridge. This man teached other people to jump. Alongwith driver first he went towards kerala and reverted towards mangalore as he had seen this bridge from the day of college. Now question arises how to stop others to jump. Fisherman Dsouza all day never available nearby. Some day earlier girl jumped into river.
