BALLARI: An elderly couple who tried to commit suicide by lying down on the railway track near Nagenahalli Cross on the outskirts of Hosapete were rescued by youths and admitted to the district destitute home. Ramanna, 59, and his wife Renukamma, 57, had lived on footpaths in Patelnagar for decades. They didn't have any children and were not in touch with any relatives. While Ramanna was a construction supervisor and had constructed several houses, Renukamma was a domestic help. But, they were depressed because they didn't have kids and worried about ill-health, loneliness... more...
and that they were unable to earn a living. They decided to commit suicide and on Wednesday evening, they reached the Nagenahalli railway bridge. Around the same time, Chandra Mohan, 29, Mahesh, 28, and Veeresh, 26, were returning home. When they heard the couple talking about sleeping on the track, they informed their karate instructor, K Sridhar Naidu. Naidu, Yuvasena Shakthi chief and standing committee chairman of the Hosapete municipality, rushed to the spot. The couple told them they were going to a relative's house. The youths were not convinced and kept a watch from a distance. When a train was spotted in the distance, the couple rushed to the track, held hands and lay down. The youths quickly dragged the couple away in the nick of time and brought them to their roadside shelter in Patelnagar, and offered them dinner. Naidu said, "After we rescued them from the track, they were very angry. We stayed with them the entire night to prevent another attempt." On Thursday, they contacted the Ballari destitute home and requested officials to take care of the couple. Ramanna, said, "No one is ready to take care of us now. We talked many times about committing suicide, but this time we actually went ahead with the plan. We're unable to feed ourselves or buy medicines. We're of no use to society." \Renukamma said: "We stayed at my sister's house for a long time. But how long can they take care of us? Due to old age and ill-health, I can't work as a maid. My husband too can't work. That's why we decided to commit suicide." District destitute home staff at Ballari, said, "We got a call about the couple from Hosepete. They're living here and we're taking care of them."
Very sad face of reality. Every year our govt collect taxes to the tune of several Lac Crore Rs and old pennyless couple commit suicide! Most of the money splurged in the name of social welfare goes into wrong hands and the real needy are dying in this way!
