Indian cricketer S Sreesanth has been away from the field since being caught in the IPL fixing case in 2013. Sreesanth had stayed in Tihar Jail for 26 days during the fixing allegations and Sreesanth said that he was in depression for a long time after being out of jail.
Sreesanth was in depression after coming from jail
Talking to the Indian Express, Sreesanth talked about his prison experience and said that he had to undergo special therapy after coming out. He said, ‘When I came out of jail, I was in depression for the next six months. I could not sleep all night. I used to cry without talking. During that four or five times, I thought of ending myself, but I stopped myself. Sreesanth said that while in jail, he often wondered how all this happened. He said, ‘I did not think why it happened to me, I used to think how it could happen. Have I ever done anything wrong that is causing all this to happen to me. But I did not get any response.
Music helped me, said Sreesanth
Sreesanth said that music helped him get out of depression. There was a bulb in the jail which always kept on burning, after which he also wrote a song called ‘Roshni’ on it. For the time being away from cricket, he has joined politics and acting. He told that he is working on a webseries with film director Mahesh Bhatt and his daughter Pooja Bhatt. At the same time, Sreesanth is also working on his autobiography. Talking about politics, he said that he wants to contest against Congress’s Shashi Tharoor from Thiruvananthapuram on a BJP ticket.
