  1. This is really something disturbing the young generation. I see many cases here in my country, especially the grade 12 students having this problem. Some go to the extreme end and end up in suicide. Informative post. Have your say on E for Exaggeration if you find my theme (women@40) interesting.

    1. Students are told that after 12th they won’t face a lot of pressure. When the truth comes out it invariably upsets and shocks most students

      1. here its a different cenario. the kids are put into peer pressure and parental pressure. CCA and competition add on. then comes the best school. best junior college and then the best univ. Universities have limited slots, again there is a pressure. On the whole study has become more commercialised rather than to enjoy and learn. we can talk on your post for long hours actually 🙂

      2. That’s true too ☺️. This reminds me of the 3 idiots dialogue, don’t be trained, be educated.

  2. this is crucial time of life when a person must be enjoying his life ,and here he is facing all the problems at once.A strong mental makeup is able to handle it,or sharing with the persons, who matter most, can ease out things.anyway,you very well highlighted the pressures.more awareness is needed in this field.

  3. Arjun, recently I came across a situation where in a brilliant, talented teenage girl threatened to commit suicide. The pain and agony that the parents and the child had to go through was magnanimous. Having witnessed it from close quarters, I feel that we as a society, parents need to introspect our behaviour, our expectations from the new generation. A lot needs to be changed.

    1. It’s true. A lot has to be changed to make the people more understanding. The more talent a person has, the more they are pressured to have some extraordinary achievments

  4. When people get stressed they go through an avalanche of negative thoughts. They are probably driven to suicide in that moment because most of them don’t know what they are facing. It is sad that most people even if they listen to someone’s story don’t realize the seriousness of it.

  5. You don’t mention commerce colleges! But your analysis is true anyway. Most of all the pressure to succeed is immense. The fact that someone made a wrong choice and wants to move is not welcome st all. We have a lot to do here but sadly doesn’t look like things are changing soon

    1. I don’t have alot of insight into commerce courses and colleges so I stayed off of them. I thought I shouldn’t share half baked knowledge or opinion. Mistakes aren’t given a lot of room for correction right now.

  6. We seldom pay attention to the plight of students. If a child is stressed over studies, mostly they will be rebuked as excuses. 🙁

    1. Exactly! Academics are over stressed and extra curricular activities are put down or taken lightly. So many talented people never manage to fulfill their potential.

  7. This is a pertinent topic Arjun and the one that needs our immediate attention ,going by how student suicide cases are plummeting by the day. Even, school going children end their lives owing to peer pressure. Glad, you wrote about it. Great initiative.

    1. Thank you Meha. Education institutes currently don’t take the human nature of students into account while teaching. It does not look like it will change anytime soon.

      PS I think you meant rocketing instead of plummeting 😛

  8. You have touched the cord Arjun, today’s education institutes are nothing but stressful nodes. I myself being an educator know how young minds get troubled with unrealistic expectations from peers and self.
    Wonderful post

  9. I was depressed when I didn’t qualify pre-med in my first attempt. I decided to go to Kota which is a hub for engineering and medical entrances. Everyone warned me that the platform is too high and competitive but in all, it only helped me. Staying at a place completely foreign, meeting people who are so friendly helped me to get out of my anxiety and depression. Being off social media and just going somewhere quite and foreign is one of the best solutions anyone can come up with. Everybody faces depression in some point of their lives. The question is, who gets out of it. There’s the fighter and winner! Awesome read though! Good luck!

    1. That’s a really inspiring story! Kota often ends up being hellish for many students but I’m glad the place helped you fight depression. I wouldn’t agree on the everyone is depressed at some point in their lives part though but that is a matter for another day. Good luck and best wishes to you too! 🙂

  11. Exactly, Education institutes currently don’t take the human nature of students into account while teaching,Academics are over stressed and extra curricular activities are put down or taken lightly.

    1. Exactly! Arts or anything which isn’t STEM is discouraged in many families. Extra curricular activities are seen as additional activities instead of possible careers
