Today, I was checking out the bdcylist’s group activities as a daily routine. Suddenly, My eyes stuck on a news that one of our youngest member commit suicide yesterday. After the reviewing his friend’s comments, I came to know that he was a very jolly minded cyclist. The reason behind the suicide was the punishment from school. Though I don’t support committing suicide but committing suicide is one kind of murder, and this is done by none but ourselves, our society and family. No one can show any excuse just to avoid this matter. Do you know? – Every year 10,000 Bangladeshis commit suicide according to the statistics provided by the Police Headquarters! According to a report by the World Health Organization, 19,697 people committed suicide in Bangladesh in 2011.
The statistics show that 73,389 people committed suicide in seven years from 2002 to 2009. Of them, 31,857 hanged themselves and 41,532 had swallowed poison to take their own life.
Some practiced methods of Committing Suicide in Bangladesh – Hanging, Poisoning, Taking Overdose of Drugs etc.
Most of the victims are women. Students rate is not so small than men.
This is without question the most common reason people commit suicide. Severe depression is always accompanied by a pervasive sense of suffering as well as the belief that escape from it is hopeless.
Malevolent inner voices often command self-destruction for unintelligible reasons. Psychosis is much harder to mask than depression, and is arguably even more tragic. The worldwide incidence of schizophrenia is 1% and often strikes otherwise healthy, high-performing individuals, whose lives, though manageable with medication, never fulfill their original promise.
Often related to drugs and alcohol, some people become maudlin and impulsively attempt to end their own lives. Once sobered and calmed, these people usually feel emphatically ashamed. The remorse is often genuine, but whether or not they’ll ever attempt suicide again is unpredictable.

Suicide or Murder ?
An Analyze on Bangladesh:
Bangladeshi and American researchers found that half of all unnatural deaths among women aged 10 to 50 were caused by suicide.
Inferior social status is the main fact of committing suicide. Another factor is the high illiteracy rate among women and their economic dependency on men, making it difficult for them to cope with pressure from husbands and relatives.
The study found that Bangladeshi women who are married far more likely to commit suicide than single women.
Bangladeshi government as well as the society avoid the suicide matters cause of religion issues and social values. But it cannot avoid when the number is 10000 per year. Yes, you cannot avoid.
1. Mass media should advertise frequently about not to commit suicide. The authority can make drama, events and film about it.
2. Parents should be more friendly with their children from childhood that they can grow up with a confident in life.

Few years ago, I watched a film named 3 Idiots. It’s a film related to committing suicide, how we throw out our children to death. You can also watch some movies with your friends, families to make them aware of committing suicide. You can find a list from there.
Last, but not least, I want to say, ” Committing suicide is not a solution. This the part of a Coward. And human is created to fight. “
