2. Student Kills Self in Telangana: Spurred by Broken System, Sustained by Govt Apathy

Year after year, the Hyderabad police ramp up patrolling around the Hussain Sagar lake around the summer months.  But it isn’t in search of would-be robbers or vandals. Instead, they’re looking for dejected students attempting to take their own lives.

After results for the Intermediate exams (Class 11 and Class 12 under the state board, overseen by the state government and the Board of Intermediate Education) in Telangana were released on Thursday, more than 10 students have killed themselves – a tragic narrative that repeats itself over and over again. Activists say these deaths are the result of a broken academic system that wantonly places undue pressure on students to succeed in a cut-throat environment.
