Handling Pressure

'The Week' reports that the number of killings and suicides is increasing in India. Almost 75% of these are done by people who know each other or worse 25% cases are by relatives.

When pressure, hatred and doubt builds up in a person it leads to harmful and explosive behavior. Hectic schedules, lack of free time, personal and social life, increasing prices, disproportionate desires to income, work-life pressures, unfulfilled dreams and fantasies act as fuel to crime. This can be avoided if the family, friends observe such violent behavior and pressure building up and try to diffuse it. As the AIRTEL ad says ‘Barriers break when people talk’. If discovered early, the crimes can be avoided. We need more counselors and de-stressing material in our education, society and life.
