There are several reasons for a person to commit suicide. Bullying is one of the reasons where a person if bullied can have psychological torture and that pressure when not handled can lead to a suicide. Bullying starts from early age in a person’s life. In early age it might happen at home where a child could be physically harassed or mentally abused. In homes women are bullied by their husbands or in-laws. Bullying can be done by anyone and on anyone. There is no hard and fast rule that a strong person can not be a victim of bullying, but there are ways to handle it. A person should raise ones voice when getting bullied. Laws also prevents a person form getting bullied by making anti-bullying laws for different time and situations. There are Child Protection Laws, Women Safety Laws, Anti-ragging Laws, Prevention from Cyberbullying Laws, Information technology laws and most important Indian Penal Code lays down certain provisions for protection of each and every individual. Every person is given Right to Life by our Indian Constitution where Right to Equality and Right to Life with Dignity guarantees a respect full life to every person. Thus, if any person abets anyone for suicide it is considered as punishable offence. There are laws for safety but the voice is to be raised by every victim so that bullies are stopped from bullying others and there are less suicides than present time.
