13 student suicides in two weeks. Is the problem with the education system or the way the system is enforced? Is the problem with the way lessons are taught or the way the lessons are expected to be learnt? Is the problem with the way education is imparted or with the way education is supposed to impact a life? Is the problem with the teachers who often appear disinterested, lackadaisical, lazy, overbearing, rude, condescending or with parents who often push and push towards something that is supposedly the way up. Is the problem with the students who push themselves till they break or the ones who are put down because they are lost? Is the problem with the students who learn dubious methods to move ahead, or with the ones that learn from the ones who take the easy way out?
