  1. Human life and feelings are least concerned aspects nowadays.
    Struggle for survival with limited means of income leading to unemployment, disturbed families and stress. Its the extreme pain and poverty causing such suicides where a mother committing suicide with her kids.
    She prefers death to such a life.

    Who is responsible ?
    God or Government..

  2. Death is not only solutions for life
    Some people when they seeks for help people neglects them for helping that could be the reason where humanity is disappearing
    Society is only the reason they did this act
    I blame our society for this
