Suicide means killing oneself. There is a dramatic rise in suicides. Few realities are as chillingly compelling and as morbidly intiguiting as suicide. It not only affects the people who commit suicide, but also the people who are left behind. Think of the parents of those who commit suicide.
The French sociologist Emile says,” The cause of suicide is essentially social.” Most psychiatrists accept this hypothesis that pressure of modern living and not the person’s genetic predisposition is behind the dramatic rise in suicides.
Someone has said in India, for every person who commits suicide, there are twenty others who attempt it and thirty others who contemplate it. The National Crime Record Bureau logs the country’s suicide rate at ten in every ten lakh. More than fifty percent of these are women. In the past decade a number of young and talented women have taken their own lives.
What may be the reason for these suicides????
What all we can do so that we can help others and make them aware????
