Do away with orthodoxy

The high rate of suicide may be attributed to the high rate of literacy here. Educated unemployed youth find themselves a burden to the family and society at large. The orthodox nature of the Keralite adds oil to the fire.

If young men and women are allowed to move about freely and are accepted by society, it would be a solace and may help bring down the rate of suicide among the youth.
