Former president of the Noida IMA Dr. NK Sharma, while talking to IANS said that due to nuclear families and western culture, suicide cases are increasing, especially among the youth.

He said, “Today's youth and children want everything immediately. When they get depressed or are in a bad situation, they are not able to mention it to the people around them. That is why the number of youth committing suicide is increasing.”

According to him, in most suicide cases one thing that is seen is the loneliness of the person. Today, whoever is stressed or mentally disturbed, there is no one around to take care of them, neither does anyone know about their problems nor does anyone inquire about their well-being.
