The boy wrote in his suicide note that he could not score good marks in his exams despite trying and that he’d rather die than be result shamed by everyone around him. He kept asking for his parents to forgive him for choosing to commit suicide. He also left a number on the note, so that whoever finds the note or the body, can easily get in touch with his parents.

What do you think about result shaming in our society? Let us know in the comments below.

  1. Knowledge is power n everything not grades n positions.. many failures reached on top n now they run business while position holders are stuck in 9 to 5 salary based job. in our society, parents needs to grow up by their minds and should give the confidence to their childrens and teach them that failure is not the end it is actually the start of everything,u should have to study hard n try again n again n again and then succeeded. if u see the door closed and there must be other doors r opened for u.

  2. This close to taking the same step. I did my best and did better than i had expected. But of course. It’s never enough for parents. The constant shaming has thrown me into a dark dark void. An endless void.
