She wanted best education for her children,good, every parent wants that,but the higher cost of good education is not affordable by many.
Reema(name Changed) unfortunately was one of them.Obssesed by the feeling that her two children should get outstanding result in their school, for that she needed a good tutor.There was one in their neightbourhood but his fees were very high and since Reema’s husband were weak financially they could not afford it.
Reema seems to have gone beyond rational thinking,so when she was unable to pay his fees in cash she opted to pay in kind,that too giving in to his alleged demand “herself”.
It seems this arrangement suited everyone,the tutor got his “fees”,Reema got what she wanted good tutorial for her children.The children got what their mother wanted good coaching.
But than one day the kids saw their mother and tutor in an objectionable and compromising position with their tutor.Unable to bear the consequence of her mindless act she committed suicide.But before that she wrote a suicide note she could not face the humiliation and her children after she was found in compromising position with their tutor.
Now the police has arrested the tutor for exploitation and abetting the suicide. Where is the mindless competition and race for good percentage leading us? The ridiculously high percentages, even highter cut-off lists in college admission has made many parents paranoid about the marks.
All in all such stupid act cannot be condoned at any cost.Now who is the innocent victim,her husband and children for whom she wanted the best,the family of the tutor, who will have to live lifelong with the stigma.
