New Delhi: An IIT aspirant, who could not secure the cut-off marks, posted on Quora, a question and answer website, whether suicide is an option for him as he couldn’t tell about his score to his father. A plenty of anonymous replies poured in, dissuading him from the idea, proving that the virtual world can actually yield inspiring options in an age of online stalking and bullying.

The anonymous ‘dropper’ said that he got only 111 out of 360 in JEE (Advanced). He wrote that he didn’t have the guts to tell this result to his father. “I screw up questions which I used to solve earlier. What should I do now? Is suicide an option?” he wrote.

Instantly, Kent Pawar, Abhijit Singh Mandloi, Tamal Biswas, Ankit Singh Bhaduria, Aditya Kamal, Pulin Agarwal and many more anonymous users on Quora, who may not know each other, but bound by similar experiences of ‘failure’, jumped to his rescue.

Computer Science engineer Aditya Kamal came up with a humourous answer, “Attempts for suicide have no age limit? So, why the hurry? And then, the usual procedure of cremation, bhoj etc costs quite a lot of money. So, the idea is not financially very good,” he wrote undersigning as ‘Jee and Aieee failed, still living’.
