Heart attacking shocker

Wednesday, March 07, 2018

The death of a 15 year old SSC student due to heart attack reveals the pressure undertaken by the present students. The death happened on the eve of the examination and raised many eyebrows.  Students are put to test by parents and teachers and they succumb to the pressure. It is examination time and students are under tremendous pressure to perform well at the final examination. Anxiety, tension, brokenness, conditional love, death, dejection, emptiness, insignificance, guilt, hopelessness, illness, falsehood and a sense of shame on failure or due to inappropriate acts by colleagues create suicidal tendency. Depression is a strong mood involving sadness, loneliness, discouragement, despair or hopelessness that lasts for weeks, months or even longer. It was indeed a shocker as the student was playing Holi and preparing well for the examination. Everything happened at midnight at a time when pressure had mounted. The present day students are put to the test because of busy schedules, tuition classes and various other factors, which includes pressure from parents to perform at the highest level, all leading to poor health and in turn an extremely unfortunate end.
