Police must do their duty honestly

In the past we used to feel secure when police were nearby. There used to be signboards on which it was written, "Police is your friend, take help from them when necessary".
But now everything has changed, we cannot always think them as saviours, sometimes we even feel uneasy in their presence.
Police force is maintained by people's money. They should do their duty without fear or favour. They must remember it and act accordingly.

Suicide not a solution

The present world is the modern age. And with this modernity, the tendency of suicide is also increasing.  Suicide is a process of voluntary death.  Children between the ages of 18 and 22 are most addicted to suicide.  People make these wrong decisions mainly due to family pressure, indecision in life goal, failure in love etc. People want to live even in the moment before suicide, but the brain then stops working, due to which the person cannot make the right decision.  In general, men are three to four times more likely to commit suicide than women.  Women always find a woman or a man around her to talk about her grief but there are not more than one woman to listen to a man's mind. A soft hearted woman can easily lighten her mind by crying but a man cannot.  Due to which the suicide rate of men is higher than that of women.  One of the major effects of suicide is addiction online.
According to Wikipedia, one-third of the people who die each year commit suicide. Properly covered, it will withstand a great deal of adverse conditions.  Therefore, from the beginning of student life, every teacher should teach students about life as well as study.  Whenever you see a depressing post online, friends around should accompany him.  This can remove the temporary frustration of the person.  All in all, I would like to say that suicide cannot be a solution.
