Suicide Prevention

1.Remembering my classmate!

It was June 2011 I first met my friend P in my class. He was a quiet student but was enthusiastic. He was an active participant in all cultural competitions, particularly skit and singing. An excellent stage performer and always lead the street plays on social awareness. I got to know him better when we attended an inter college fest for two days in Trichy. He sang songs a whole night and kept the entire group entertained. We always felt he was an intelligent one among the entire batch and will go places after college. In our final year, he arranged for a college tour to Goa. He was the organizer for the tour and handled the complete program with a dexterity that amazed everyone. Two days after we got back from the trip we were shaken by the news that my friend P had hung himself in his room. He had planned everything much before the trip and this trip was the way he chose to bid goodbye.

We never knew why our 22-year-old classmate did what he did and how did a class full of 30+ behavioural science students and their faculty failed to read any signs of struggle or issue in him. There were many theories on why he did what he did, some said he had started some startups while studying which ended up a badly hence this decision. What I did understand on that day is Suicide is not, nonverbal clue written on anybody's face nor can we stereotype that only sad-looking gloomy individual will indulge in such activity. Forever I will miss seeing that good friend of ours who never gave us the slightest thought that he would take such a drastic step.
