A 3rd year IIT- Hyderabad student, who expressed depression in his suicide letter, jumped off a building in the campus on early Tuesday. The 20-year-old who was pursuing B-tech III year, succumbed to injuries while undergoing treatment.
The deceased dashed a suicide note to his friends at 3. 23 AM, i.e. 3 minutes before he took the drastic leap. The letter reflected his depressed and dejected state of mind.
The student wrote (Verbatim ) “These 20 years of my life taught me enough already. I don’t find life interesting anymore. I want to put an end to everything. Life rather seems depressing never-ending strands of misfortune to the extent that I mentally couldn’t tolerate. I have no clue how my future is going to be. I have been feeling this for the past two months. Also, the courses are going bad for me. I couldn’t concentrate well.”
He further adds, “There is a critic within me questioning my every move to the extent that I feel I shouldn’t exist. Yes, I shouldn’t exist because I am a self -obsessed guy. I was brought up that way, being compared with my peers all the time. Finally, whatever it is, I am sure my death is going to make a big difference to this world”.
