For those with the perception that India produces only world class engineers and doctors, here’s the truth :-
Unable to score the marks she expected, a 17-year-old SSC student allegedly committed suicide on Monday evening by immolating herself at her suburban Mulund house, police said.
Rajlaxmi Muthu, a resident of Vaani High School, Mulund, immolated herself at her house at Shivshakti Chawl in Indira Nagar of Mulund, police said.
She was rushed to a private hospital, where doctors pronounced her dead on arrival.
The intense competition in Indian schools breeds an expectation which is sometimes very difficult to achieve. Instead of trying again, kids commit suicide. Pathetic.
