Nowadays, the trend of suicide in our country is increasing at an alarming rate due to various reasons. Life is the most precious gift that God has endowed to us as human beings. Therefore, for the sake of love for life, we should try our best to save life from any unwanted danger rather than trying to make it as beautiful and dynamic as possible. Stumbling step by step in life, many people feel the natural urge to overcome the problem and move forward, but some people forget the worth of life being extremely frustrated and choose the path of suicide.
Women and men of different ages think the path of suicide being victim of adverse situations in various fields of life including personal, family and social. The tendency is more prevalent among the youth though the tendency is also increasing among the adolescents. In Bangladesh society, so-called failure in love or deceive is considered a possible reason behind suicide, but in reality, suicide occurs for a variety of reasons.
Drug addicts are seen to commit suicide at some point in their life. Again, many girls who are victims of sexual harassment seek solutions in suicide to get rid of subsequent social humiliation and embarrassment. Also, one of the reasons behind the suicide among the teenagers is their uncontrollable emotions in adolescence. At present, negative impact of foreign culture and free internet access is also a significant factor in increasing the tendency to commit suicide. In recent time, almost all the suicides of college-university students that have been discussed in various media are the cause the strain of emotional relationship called 'love'.
However, many become depressed after failing to cope with repeated setbacks in the ongoing race to succeed in life. They kill themselves forgetting their families and the future. Some people post the cause of suicide on social media or write notes on paper just before the suicide! They get suicide equipment is quite readily available such as ropes or scarves to hang, poisonous pesticides or chemicals to drink, sleeping pills etc.
Teenagers are considering suicide from a kind of deprivation such as not to be able to buy mobile phones, bicycles or motorbikes, or not being allowed to travel far with friends, to get insulted by parents or teachers for some reasons. In this case, the effects of uncontrolled emotions during adolescence induce them to commit suicide. Often, the suicide of popular actors and actresses in the country or abroad also causes negative impact on their mind. They lost control of their own mind being overwhelmed.
Many girls end their lives to escape social harassment. Hate crimes of our social system make it difficult for them to survive. Disgusted by the harsh comments or sarcasm of people, the victim starts to feel insecure. But all these unexpected behavior are considered to make the girl guilty.
She tries to end her life in some way to get out of such a delicate situation. Again, there are cases of suicide due to not having a good relationship or having an extramarital affair.
But instead of building or arranging life, putting the light of life off in this way is not supported by society and religion. Yet suicides go unabated. There are many reasons why the affinity of suicide is increasing day by day. We cannot get out of it just because of our unconsciousness and lack of effective initiative. The practice of religious and moral education is a powerful way to keep away people from any evil deeds. We need to ensure modern education as well as moral education in our families and general educational institutions.
We need to be aware of the special needs of adolescents. Any awkward incident to them causes different impact on their minds. They are not hesitant to make any wrong decision unless proper support and companionship is ensured. Family, educational institutions and society need to take integrated initiatives to control their emotion. It is our responsibility to keep them at a safe distance from the current turbulent environment of our society. They should be encouraged to be gentle and try to correct mistakes without showing a hard attitude towards their sudden deterioration in studies or other.
