To me, the eerie incident that took place in a bazaar, in which two teenagers had taken their life, is a consequence of co-education.

In co-education there are myriad steps that lead to such ghastly incidents. Boys and girls are engaged in formal relationships and give and take activity of notes, books, pencils, erasers etc. This sharing activity then metamorphoses into normal friendship and then they gossip and informal chitchat takes place. This normal friendship transformed into mutual love affair and this is the onset of the destruction of their lives. Their love bond become intense day by day and when they are impeded from meeting and seeing each other they resort to suicidal activities. And this is ,what we have seen in Patel Para School .
