“Everybody dies but not everybody lives,” length of life is a myth and depth is the only thing that actually matters.
Does this thought rule the mind of all, who choose to end their lives?
Certainly not! Life is the most precious gift we all have received from nature; a thought to end it can’t get appreciation from us.
According to data, between 1987 to 2007, the suicide rate increased from 7.9 to 10.3 per 100,000, with higher suicide rates in southern and eastern states of India.
On 17TH January 2016, another tragic incident got added to these numbers, when 26 year-old V Rohit decided to end his life.
Rohit, a resident of Guntur, was pursuing his PhD in society studies at a Hydarabad university for the past two years. He allegedly committed suicide on Sunday by hanging himself at the hostel.
He was a members of the Ambedkar union and had been accused of attacking an activist of the BJP-linked Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad or ABVP in August, allegedly during a protest against the execution of 1993 Bombay blasts convict Yakub Memon.
He took the extreme step, after the university barred him and four others from entering the administrative building, hostels, libraries, mess and other common areas of the university campus.
While speaking to reporters, Rohit’s friends stated that Rohit was hurt.
Again! A youth ended his life to end his pain.
Leaving a question behind “ does life scares more than death?”
