Stress has different forms and it can be dangerous for people of any age group. In today’s world the competition has become so hard that the students buckle under pressure that tends them to even commit suicide. Growing expectation from all side force results in the mismatching of performance and results.
In a surprising and shocking incident, a school topper in Kerala committed suicide because he thought the financial difficulties might restrict his studies further. Prince Thomas, student of class XII, committed suicide just after the results were announced.
He had secured 91 per cent marks in class XII. Despite of being the topper of the school and scored over 90 per cent in the exams, Prince opted to end his life.
Prince’s father M C Thomas said that Prince was interested to join BSc nursing. We all were happy after his result. He had even collected and filled the admission form for the nursing college. Around 1 am in the night I found him hanging in his room.
According to his father, Prince was actually worried that his family cannot afford the expense of the higher studies. His father had sold off family property as he had suffered massive lossws in business. Prince had seen that his father had paid large amount of donation to secure his sister’s admission in a nursing college. He did not want to add to the family’s financial problems.
