    Hard to believe.Young generation is now on the line of suicides.What was cause we dont know.Lack of jobs?Any intake of hard drugs or tablets to build muscles ?AT the end they are disgusted without job and fame.They should realise a good education too is a must to achieve your living.Not all muscle men can have a chance to become famous.Its luck and hard work brings further .May his sul rest in peace.Heartfelt sympathy to family.Now his family has to suffer missing him .

    There is one thing that young minds or any mind should recognise is to overcome the fear of what if someone comes to know about it . Or what may happen to him/ or her if it comes out. What will be your social status in the society and so on related to it . Problems are temporary things in the world so big and this problem has a solution . No matter how big or gigantic it may be . Learn to approach with just 0% of of courage is that all your need to start . There are people in the society and world wide who can help before taking such a huge step . One big mistake in this one time life when alive doesn't mean that you are not worth living . But show 0% of courage is all it takes for you to live your life to the fullest . Keep your trust in almighty and don't let fame lead your life .keep the contacts limited with quality and not quantity . For it will show it's results

    His political affiliations & nexus with politically biased organizations must be examined... It is hard to believe an otherwise mentally strong community member is taking this extreme step.., At present the tender minds were mentored to harm to others and thus causing irreparable guilty conscious result in vulnerable to these kind of unwarranted decision, time to counsel Hindu youths to be away from social evil & toxic news factory..,

    Dear Sir, I would like to address the issue of mental health, which is often misunderstood and stigmatized in our society. Contrary to popular belief, mental health is not related to political affiliation or biased news channels. Rather, it is a complex issue that can be caused by various factors such as traumatic brain injury, abusive upbringing, and chemical imbalances in the brain. Unfortunately, in India, there is still a taboo surrounding mental health, and many people are hesitant to seek help from a psychiatrist. This is a cultural issue that needs to be addressed. We should strive to create awareness about mental health and encourage people to seek professional help when needed.
