Increasing number of suicides, which way heads our society?
Guwahati/ 27th July’2017 (Prag News Desk): After the tragic death of Bidisha Bezbaruah, who recently committed suicide in her Gurgaon apartment a lot of questions have arisen in the minds of many.

In many cases it was seen that youngsters between 10 to 14 years of age ended their lives over trivial issues, like exam result and parent scolding them for some minor issues.
As per the statement of clinical psychologist Mythili Hazarika the increased rate of suicide cases are result of decree in patience among the young people and their lack of spirit to deal with life pressures.
The reasons might be numerous but if we try we might be able to decrease the rates in the coming days. Risk becomes severe, when one loses the direction in life or not able to know their own self or it might be absence of proper guidance due to which young people are choosing death over a grief loaded life.
