He further stated that a serious question arises if 32.3 percent of the population then has serious psychological problems, such as anxiety or depression. “When 97 percent of the population experiences grief, it requires immediate work to solve the problem. The Bhagwat Gita in life is the solution to it and people of other faiths follow their own path and that is the solution for them.”
