Extra info for A Philosophy of Suicide
Consequently, many farmers realizing their inability to sustain and to improve their economic conditions, commit suicides as we read in newspapers about the recent incidents of suicides in Orissa. Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Rajasthan, etc. The central and the state governments hardly reach there to their rescue. This is the genuine situation that intermittently affect the poor farmers and drive them to commit suicides. 24 The old man and his suicide has a strange story for me to unfold. This incident took place in the month of May, 2001, in Sanganer city of Jaipur district, Rajasthan State.
Many years' old friendship, thus, turned into an enmity. Rajendra, then, was badly shakened and stunned, and hurriedly, took out some petrol from his Hero Honda. He poured petrol upon him in order to bum his body so that nobody could recognize Sridhar; but soon, Rajendra himself realized his guilt and crime; instead of running away, he embraced the burning friend's body. This way both of them went in eternal peace, one by murder and the other by self-killing as inferred by the police. 33 This incident of suicide is somewhat different one from those mentioned earlier.
3. 'Johar' is another way of self-killing, which was mostly prevalent in Rajput families of India. Now this custom does not exist, yet it was also a very painful way of selfkilling. It was the ceremonial act of burning oneself to death, performed by Rajput women and sometimes also by children, usually after receiving the news of the defeat of Rajput kings, or warriors, in battle against their enemies. If the women or children were caught alive, they were tortured or molested by the enemies. Such a frightening situation or disgracefulness impelled them to adopt the way of self-burning called 'Johar'.
