  1. How does an 11 year old have presence of mind and focus enough to do this to herself? Hard to believe. Horrible story.

  2. So sorry for the poor soul!It is the time to produce something tangible instead of just comments. NGOs,influential people as well as religious leaders should step forward to find out the root causes of suicide.Today someone else’s daughter, sister, wife, mother commits suicide, tomorrow one of us can be among the bereaved families. We are sitting silently and watching the news of suicide almost on a weekly basis just like chickens in the slaughter houses being slaughtered one by one and waiting for our turn.

  3. What is shocking and even sickening is that this eleven old considered suicide as the only way out instead of turning to her elders!! Imagining the reasons that could be behind an act as severe as this is horrifying in itself.

  4. This is very shocking to hear within such a short time another girl has lost her life. Who made the conditions for this little soul to take her life? It is very shocking indeed. As a nation we should not take these happenings lightly and do something.
