A*Star Suicide

Read this bit of sad news. Got the link from a friend. A* scholar kills himself over a relationship gone bad. No angle on this. Just sad that someone so young would kill himself over a relationship.

Such things happen all the time. The only sad part is that the guy had no one else to turn to, in his hour of need. Sometimes, all you need is a sympathetic ear and things would not get so bad. I wouldn't call him 'young' anymore considering that he's already 25. He is definitely old enough to differentiate right from wrong.

But like one of the comments said - it must have been some rejection!

OKM,

He did not kill himself over a relationship gone bad. He killed himself because his love for the Chinese girl was rejected, twice. Worse, she chose his best friend over him.

He never had a "relationship" (if you exclude "platonic friendship") with the girl to begin with.

its in spore, ppl take a longer time to mature there when even adults need a pseudo nanny government to take care of them. i would consider their 25 year olds to be young, definitely.

Hai,
nice blog...I was believe this what a human need a important education from parent and school.The most important part is parent.Parent should teach and guide their child from small about relationship,and everything.When i fail or sad or disappointed,my father always guide me.What your child became at future is depend how parent guide and education.Even your child get good result is not important but how to guide a child became useful person at future.

There's this article from the same blog that provided that link, on how the scholarship selection system in Singapore should be more accomodating to people who are not just bookworms. http://wayangparty.com/2009/01/19/scholar-suicide-raises-serious-questions-about-selection-process/

Being lonely is the worst thing in life and can lead to disasters like this at times.

Someone said love is stupid. Love is not stupid those who fall in love may be stupid!!

In today's life one should never get attached too deeply to another person, because the chances are that once the relationship comes to an end someone will get real hurt.

That's the irony of life. No matter how intelligent a person is, when it comes with love, he became so dumb that he use killing himself as a choice other than getting a brand new love life.

There's nothing stupid about this. I totally understand how he felt. If help doesn't come, this happens. The only difference between him and me is, help came in time for me.
