Suicide is a crime, but still it is the third leading cause of death in the world. Suicidal behavior is increasingly becoming a phenomenon associated with children & adolescent all over the world. According to a study by Lancet, as many as 1, 87,000 people committed suicide in India in 2010 (Volume 379, 23 June 2012). The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that India records nearly 1, 70,000 suicidal deaths each year. Of the total cases of suicide, nearly 35 per cent were recorded in age group of 15-29 years. Meanwhile, the Lancet study indicates that suicidal deaths in the same age group at 46 percent of the total. A comparison of the number of suicides in states with high literacy rates with those with low literacy rates reveals that the states with high literacy (top ten states) contribute 33 per cent to suicidal deaths.
