ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “Youth commits suicide on his engagement day”

  1. Savitha says:

    Sharath never blamed anybody for his death.
    He never even mentioned in his death note that he was not ready for marriage.
    He just said that he was psychologically weak & it was no one’s fault.
    I as a family member of Sharath don’t want any inconvenience caused to his fiance’s family & I don’t like her future to be spoilt because of this news.
    The girl’s family is pained by this news which is far from truth.
