depression is very common, a large percentage of the population will experience it at some point in their life to varying degrees. sometimes it lasts a few days, sometimes a few weeks, up to years. nothing she said sounds like a joke to me

I too didn't find anything wrong with this quote. I understand what she meant to say. Most of the people in India don't even know what depression is. If some depressed person visits a psychiatrist, they think of them as a mental patient which is a stigma in Indian society. Alia is just stating fact that depression is a genuine/real problem.  Its a disease just as cold which can be treated and the person can fully recover unlike aids or cancer.

That is the sad part... We Indians think that depression means mental unstability that is mad...
Even parents try to hide it  when their children suffered from save from sniggering comments of society

I think her word choices are wrong..a lot of people can read her statement in a wrong way. I for one was pissed because I thought she was comparing something serious as depression to a common cold. But I read a few members posts on a first page and I was like oh so that's what she meant.

Why is depression called the common cold of mental illness?

Its so easy to develop and nearly everyone will experience it at one point, rather like a cold. It is also hard to shake and will affect you whether you like it or not, but the main reason is because of how common it really is but no one really notices.
