    It is indeed sad to learn another young life has just been lost. First of all, pressure from schools on students to get a 100% results in tenth standard which is a prestige for all these schools. Over this, almost all parents expect their child to get distinction, without realizing the capacity of students. Each student is different from another one, with her / his own talents and strengths. That does not mean every child should get high marks. Let us save lives and not our craze of high marks. Dear Parents your child is more precious than that " Piece of paper called marks sheet" which can do these kind of disasters. Stop comparing your children with others, stop pressurizing your children to score high marks. Your child is more precious than anything else in this life
