Geetanjali Nagpal: An unforeseen saga
The heartbreaking story of Geetanjali Nagpal, a onetime booming model found begging on Delhi streets has left many disturbed. While doctors are yet to diagnose her case there are many who are cashing in on her saga.

WHILE WE are all accustomed with stories of many people who have made it from rags to riches, the saga of Geetanjali Nagpal, an upcoming and promising model of the nineties is one that is hard to believe.


The media is abuzz with narrative tales of the model who had once sashayed down the ramp with the likes of Sushmita Sen and was recently rescued from the pavements in the national capital by a team from Delhi Commission for Women.


Geetanjali, daughter of a naval officer, who completed her schooling from Mount Carmel and her higher studies from the prestigious Lady Sri Ram College, was found begging in the streets of Hauz Khas village in New Delhi.


But what is the reason behind such a state of apathy is something that perturbs every mind.  Many speculations were raised including Geetanjali being a drug addict. But doctors at VIMHANS, where she is presently being treated have ruled that out.


“Diseases can happen to any human being. This person should not be seen as a model but as a human. It can affect any person at any point of time. Psychiatric disorder happens to a person because of chemical changes in the brain. Since her case has not been diagnosed as yet, it is very difficult to comment but she is definitely going through a psychiatric disorder,” said Dr Sameer Pareekh, a psychiatrist.


The model who was violent and rude with the media on the first day has been described to be a decent, calm and a ‘model’ patient to deal with.


There are many who also feel that it is when the models fail to keep up to the pressure of the fashion arena, they succumb and fall prey to the pressure associated.


Personalities from the fashion fraternity however think each and every individual has to cope with some kind of stress in each and every field. One has to deal with the problems in his or her own way. 


“You are responsible for your own life. There is pressure in every profession and one should be careful enough. Of course I do believe that there is a bit of exposure to drugs and that kind of stuff in the fashion industry but in her case the doctors have also said that she is not an addict. So she must be having some personal problems,” said leading fashion designer Asheema Leena Singh.


Apart from the usual hulla gulla in the media, with most of the channels chasing her case 24*7, there are some who are planning a film or an album portraying the tragic story of Geetanjali Nagpal.


While entertainment industry leaves no stone unturned to cash in on the disastrous tale of this one time flourishing model, Geetanjali waits in one corner for the dawn, quite oblivious to the happenings around her.
