Karanveer Singh, a class-12 boy from Mohali, has committed suicide just because he was not able to attempt three questions of three marks each. Those nine marks have cost him and his family a significant loss after their ward was found hanging himself with a ceiling fan. This sudden loss of young blood has given a setback to all the family members. The boy committed suicide just because he thought he had disappointed his family by leaving those questions.
Moreover, he had left one suicide note for his family which stated, “I am sorry as I could not live up to your expectations and for not being able to fulfil your dreams. I love my grandparents the most and please do take good care of them,” This is the most heartbreaking letter or message any grandparent would ever love to hear.
He was pleased after giving his English board exam and relaxed to know that he can score better marks in his other papers, but his sudden decease has flourished everyone.“On our way back from the examination centre, I asked Karan about his performance. When he said he left some questions, I told him that he should practise writing faster,’ His crying father told the media.
He scored more than 90 percent in his Preboard examinations which have left his parents in a massive trauma that their son took such decision to give up his life.
“I wish I had told him that marks don’t matter to us. The only thing that mattered was seeing his smiling face every morning,” said the father.
“He used to study at our house because he felt his house was too noisy,” said Hardev Singh, 75, Karanvir’s maternal grandfather who stays in Phase 4. He had raised the boy until the age of 5 and had returned to India from Canada five months back. It was in his house that the boy committed suicide.
This case has taken place just because of peer pressure. Just to make other people proud children from 18 to 20 age take steps which can harm their and his family.
