At the beginning let us share a very painful incident which raised many concerns and questions in our mind and we found ourselves shocked and speechless…

“Few days back, there was a news about a 10-year-old child (student of 5th class) who was asked to give away the mobile phone and to focus on studies by his mother. He got so distressed with this remark that he locked himself in a room. Few hours later, when mother started calling him and he didn’t open the door. Then family member broke the door and found that he allegedly hanged himself to the fan and later he was declared dead in hospital.”
