    I cannot understand the recent increase in suicide.ealier only farmers used to commit suicide due to crop failure ,drought,rain shadow areas.Nowadays there seems to be a contagious trend in the society and people seemingly don't think twice before taking such a drastic decision.
    In the above case what was the need to jump with the one year old?
    Who gave the father the right to kill his son?Why people call it quits without giving a fight?
    And to add to these woes games like blue whale taking lives of youngsters.
    Community welfare groups and other NGOs must act fast before it's too late.
    Sometimes I wonder why this increased suicide trend only in India?
