Telangana suicides set to become hot subject of research
TNN | Apr 6, 2012

HYDERABAD: The suicides for the ’cause’ of separate Telangana state is set to become a subject of research with several scholars opting for the topic in universities in the region. In addition to starting an anti-suicide drive on the campuses, the four universities in the Telangana region – Osmania, Kakatiya, Palamuru, and Telangana – have decided to do research on the cause of the deaths.

Telangana University has decided to go a step further and set up a centre for studying suicides and other social issues spawned by the separate statehood issue. The universities have, in fact, taken a leaf out of the research work conducted on suicides earlier in the countries like the US, where suicides were witnessed among different immigrant population, especially the Afro-American communities.

Universities other than Osmania are even planning to earmark Rs 5-6 lakh in their budget next year for research on the subject. The topic has been chosen since several research scholars have shown keen interest in the Telangana agitation and suicides. (మరింత…)
