Am I the master of my own life? Are any of us? Or do our responsibilities to the ones who love us make them co-owners of our lives? Do we have the right to put the full stop at the end of our own existence? Whose life is it?

In “Ripples in the Pond”, Dheera Sujan hears the intensely personal and painful story of a wife who was left behind, a person who has frequently thought of committing suicide, and the moral issues suicide raises with one of Netherlands’ leading ethicists.
