Bantwal, Mar 9: A second PUC student has killed herself by hanging in Bantwal town, within police station limits, on March 9.

The deceased is Vaishnavi (19), daughter of Chandrashekar and Soumya, resident teachers of Balthila.

Vaishnavi, a Sanskrit student, was preparing for the examinations that were due to start tomorrow. Her mother had called their neighbors to check if their daughter was studying. However, upon investigation, the neighbors found that her room was locked, and she had committed suicide by hanging.

It was reported that Vaishnavi had been mentally tense for the last few days and had been receiving treatment from a doctor. Her father, Chandrashekar, is the principal of Ramakunjeshwara Pre-University College, and her mother, Soumya, is a teacher at Kalladka Sri Rama PU College.

Vaishnavi was a PUC student at Kalladka Vidyakendra and was a topper in her class.

    RIP. Just for the fear of exams! In my entire life I may not have found reasons to continue after several failures and pains. Important thing is we must find a reason and keep moving.

    Very sad, May her soul rest in peace. It's our culture that is pressurizing the children, we have bad habit of compare our children with neighbor's children. In real world marks does not matter, it's the skills that count. And one should choose a career that he/she is passionate about.

    One should not be worried about low marks. Most of the world's (and India's)richest are school dropouts...

    True; if you see the back benchers in school and college always achieve something big in life doing whatever business maybe; these guys are also far more resilient to parental/teacher pressures, insults, irritation unlike a child who is always protected in a cocoon by the parents, which is counter productive!

    Shocking news. May her soul rest in eternal peace. My heartfelt condolences to her parents/all family members. At the time is is not right to write .I feel , may be too extra pressure not to give-up her topper place as both parents are Principal and teachers. When she was receiving treatment, she should not be allowed alone.

    RIP! Another precious life lost! Awareness should be spread amongst parents to not to force impressionable minds to study subjects in which they have no interest; moreover never compare and put the child in competition mode to get higher and higher ranks (this is mainly promoted by the mushrooming coaching class mafia); parents should understand that there are lots many professions,other than engineering and medicine, in which they can excel; also many lucrative skill oriented professions which do not require paper degrees to show off! Personally, was shocked to read a news report that two students were duped of Rs 22.5L and Rs. 50L by fraudsters promising them confirmed seats in a medical college in Mangalore; why parents are so eager to push them by paying such huge bribes; perhaps to show off; and imagine how good doctors these types of students would make! Imho, medicine is no longer a noble profession, but a money spinning business after the entry of greedy corporates! Each child is born unique with certain inherent aptitude/talents and skills, which need to be found out and exploited as a career!
