You could have lived.

Scour the news for an entirely uninteresting story. Consider how it connects to your life. Write about that.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us a CONNECTION.


There’s been a lot of these in India recently. And as soon as i read the newspaper today i knew i had to write something about that. It was the suicide of a 14-year girl in Bangalore. Uninteresting? Am not sure.

But the reason behind that. Yes , it is interesting. Her boyfriend dumped her on Facebook after raping her and promising to marry her. Facebook. It has given so much for us all but yet it has its own obvious disadvantages especially when used by people below 18. I wouldn’t promise that a 20-year girl wouldn’t have done the same but yes she might have found the courage to do something. You can find the related news here.

To the girl who died( I don’t like to use the word suicide)

I know you had to go through a lot. I know you were scared to death, you  felt cheated, humiliated,raped and dumped by a man who promised to marry you. But you were young and there was a whole life ahead of you. You could have confessed to your parents. They would have hit you, scolded you but in the end would have forgiven you. You could have approached the police and lodged a complaint. Your so called boyfriend would have arrested. I know it’s very difficult to face the society again but i assure you if you had found the courage to do this then you would have emerged a stronger woman. You were only a girl and yet i don’t blame you. I only wanted you to know , you could have lived. Suicide was the easier way out of the problem and you took that. You could have just lived.

To her parents( i really don’t know them)

You should have watched your daughter more carefully. I know it’s really difficult to follow her every moments but you could have instilled the value of courage in her. She was young and died young. You should have told her the pros and cons of using social media. You should have taught her not to trust people so easily that not everything is as good as it is and not everyone is as good as they seem. You should have taught her not to befriend strangers. You should have done so much more and you didn’t. And you lost her.

To her so-called boyfriend.

I don’t have anything to say to you. You deserve nothing but than death.

To Facebook

I know you are too vast and there are too many people around but please try your best to verify only people above 18 use you(at least).

How does it connect to my life? I feel hurt.

  11. This is a terrible waste of a life, but I do understand the girl’s point of view. It’s unfortunate how many young people end their lives because they are unable to see past the pain of the situation in the here and now and envision a time when the pain will begin to heal and good things will once again enter their lives.
