Student suicides: A neglected issue

I recently read (in the context of the release of a marathi movie which criticises education system) that between 2004-2006 there were 16000 student suicides, that's more than 10 per day.

If true that's a truly astounding and troubling statistic. I would guess this at least parallels the farmer suicides in terms of scale. And while it is possible at attempt to remedy the farmer suicides through tangible measures and indeed it has definately been attempted thru agri-debt waivers etc there is no such easy tangible solns for student suicides.

Are we a class oriented society?

We have a lift in our office building which is reserved exclusively for directors. So even as lesser mortals queue up for lift, this lift will stay put.

And it is not as if this is a legacy issue (which it might for I have seen this directors lift in a few old buildings) as ours is a brand new building - less than a year old...

Am I generalising? I hope so...
