A Tale of Tragedy

Words cannot even begin to express our sorrow

It was around 7 am in morning and i was turning pages of newspaper when i came across the news of suicide of GMCH student .
It was disheartening to read the news of someone having worked so hard for the coveted seat at this college end up life in such a manner.
This was fifth such incidence in the medical fraternity in Chandigarh according to newspaper and a third at GMCH.
In the past few years there has been an increase in this trend of suicides among medical students and reasons attributed have ranged from professional ,personal or other related backgrounds.
The change i have noted in few years is growing seclude among the younger lots, less interaction with other batches,growing competition ,career tensions ,ever-increasing workload,frustration over petty issues and somewhere is lost is charm of college life.
We have advanced technologically but have suffered socially.

All but Death, can be Adjusted—
Dynasties repaired—
Systems—settled in their Sockets—

Wastes of Lives—resown with Colors
By Succeeding Springs—
Death—unto itself—Exception—
Is exempt from Change—

Emily Dickinson

To the departed soul, We wish her peace Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
