Suicide rates are high in India’s young people
India has one of the highest suicide rates in the world, especially in the 15-29 age group. Latest government figures on causes of suicide reveal that over 12% of suicides were directly related to matters of the heart – marriage, divorce, affair, love affair, suspected/illicit relations, etc.
It is important to talk about the issue – taking into account its seriousness – given how quickly a broken heart can descend into depression and even make someone contemplate suicide. If you are feeling low on morale and self-esteem because someone you cared for did not reciprocate those feelings, or took their love away, then read on to find some answers and hopefully light at the end of the tunnel.
