Suicide note: I could neither be a good son nor a student
I tried but I couldn’t do it. At this age, I should have been able to support my family, but even now I am living on the money of my family. Sorry for breaking your trust, I am just a failure, nothing more than that. I could neither become a good son nor a student. I was suffering from job related depression for a long time, hence I was not able to focus on my work. Mother, take care of yourself and father too. After writing this the student hanged himself in the hostel room. Police is investigating the matter.
