Yesterday evening I witnessed something that made my soul weep; the death of a class 7 boy (from a neighboring plot) who committed suicide by hanging himself. (May his soul rest in eternal peace). I couldn't think of anything that would make a class 7 boy want to commit suicide. And so the journalist in me sniffed around for answers. I learnt that the young boy accidentally broke a windowpane at school and his angry headteacher sent him away for good. (I thought this happens only in high schools). Anyway, the poor boy went home and hanged himself inside their house. His single mum was not around.

Human beings are social creatures. Sure, we value our possessions and our achievements but of all the things we value it is our relationships we cherish most. Meaningful intimate relationships give our lives meaning and bring us happiness like nothing else can. Unfortunately, problems in our interpersonal relationships can wreak havoc on our lives and bring us untold misery and suffering.
