Suicide of an IPS
Tamilnadu cadre IPS N Harish ended his life in his own hands. He was reported to be depressed for last few months. His wedding was due for next months. Incidentally, he belonged to the same batch as the IAS D.K.Ravi, whose suicide made the headlines a year back.
Being an IAS or IPS is more than the job aspiration for millions of Indians. It’s a dream divine. One feels as if this gets fulfilled, no other aspiration remains. Feeling of all accomplishment!
The recent suicides burst the myth and exposes the inadequacy of career aspirations of millions. In the indefinite rat race, one fails to realize the ultimate goal of life…….its not being an IAS or IPS. Its happiness and the feeling of fulfillment which matters above all.
Embossed in a moment of flare, one ends his life, forgetting the life long struggle he made to achieve this stage and the million who failed behind them.
Inadequacy of thought….
