Student life, the period of life when a child learns all about the real world. The life of a child as a student starts from the first day of his/her school till getting a reputed job. But today, if we observe the facts, then we will come to know that the number of children’s starting their student life is more than that of those who finish their student life.

This thinking has changed a student into not less than a horse. Every student has become a bookworm, which creates an unknown pressure on the mind. And when those students get less than expected marks they feel ashamed and leads to suicide.

But as the expenses are increasing day by day, it is becoming hard for them to provide a fruitful education for their children’s. In that scenario, they are forced to educate in adverse conditions. Being not able to get adjusted in those situations, students take suicide as the best alternate to opt.
