Some months ago I heard the heartbreaking news of suicide of eleven years old child in the village of Kanchanpur district through his close relatives. When I first heard this news, I was dumbfounded. How does the eleven years old boy think of hanging himself from the roof with the scarf? I came to know through the relatives of deceased child that some days back he had seen footage of his maternal uncle’s suicide in the cell phone of his mother. Imitating the video footage of his uncle’s suicide, the boy just hanged himself without realizing it could end his life.
