Default Man commits suicide due to inability to book a car

just read this article l so thought should share this with you guyz...The most awaited car by middle and lower class people of our country are now dying to buy this car.

Mods :- Iam not aware where to post this thread so posting it here....Kindly
Shift it to the suitable forum and update me too about it


JAMSHEDPUR: It’s compact, comfortable and affordable — the stuff middle-class dreams are made of. But the Tata Nano, the new symbol of upward mobility in India, is also fuelling some despair.

And Arun Kumar Tiwari’s story proves just that. A small-time LIC agent from Jamshedpur, Tiwari hanged himself at his Agrico Colony home on Sunday afternoon after he was unable to book his Nano.

Tiwari had been dreaming of driving the showpiece small car for months. But the wish was futile: he would not be able to pay the monthly instalments. He didn’t earn enough and his last hope was his wife, who works for a private firm and brings home around Rs 10,000 a month. But she refused, prompting him to take his life.

“He had been trying to convince me to book the Nano. Since I’m already repaying a two-wheeler loan, paying Rs 1,800 monthly as instalments, I was in no position to book a car and pay another Rs 3,000 every month,” said Dulari Devi, his wife.

No one was at home when Tiwari hanged himself. While Dulari was out on work, their only son was playing with boys in the neighbourhood. “When I told him that we’d first pay the two-wheeler loan and then book the car, he seemed convinced. But God knows what happened to him that he suddenly took this drastic step,” Dulari said, tears in her eyes.

According to police, Tiwari was probably depressed after his wife refused to pay the booking amount. “The preliminary investigation suggests that he was a very emotional man. He probably couldn’t accept the refusal and went into depression. He tried to raise the money on his own, but didn’t succeed. It was then that he decided to hang himself,” said a senior officer.

Rajendra Dubey, officer-in-charge of Sidhgora police station, refused to comment till the investigation was completed. “A case of unnatural death has been registered, based on the statement of the victim’s wife and an investigation started. I can speak on the case only after we reach a conclusion,” he said.

I feel it was highly immature of him to do this. The whole family is affected by him.

At the moment they can't. Don't know if his wife knew he was that kind.
Very sad indeed.

Default extreme step

The man didnt think about his family.Very depressing.
All this for a car - not worth it at all. My heart goes out for the family. May God help them.

A very stupid move by a stupid man. Feel sorry for his family.

We keep reading news everyday about people hanging themselves because they did not do too well in exams or other things.

Life is precious & nothing else is worth it !!

Feel so bad for that guy. He wasted the biggest blessing; his life.
A big idiotic action. I condemn him!

May his family be blessed with enough courage to wade thru this hard time.

Oh no! Yet another! Suicide is no way out it is completely out. He could have started working and earning at least 5000 per month to fulfill his wish. This is most foolish step.

Life is life... One should take it seriously under any condition. God bless his family.
