Joke Factory Employee, Aiyoo City, says: This is really a sad incident . Such kind of incidents can be easily controlled if the company policies are employee friendly . The HR should be doing councelling to know the state of the employee's mind . Also pressure which comes in from the management should also be checked .

Another victim, Heaven, says: Suspect he would have been laid off and asked to resign. Would there be any other reason why he should choose to suicide inside office campus. Investigations result will not be revealed to safeguard the co. image. Poor guy let go his life. World doesn't ends when you are laid off.

Amulya, Atlanta, says: this news is wrong he did not commit suicide. Joke Factory is making story to hide fact. he was my child hood friend

Jagan, Blr, says: Joke Factory HR should be asked for their policy/agreement using which an employee can be given 3 months leave. And during that leave period, he has the rights to resign :). Does this happen in a normal situation? Employees getting 3 months leave in middle of a project, and then happily resigning? IT employees, know the labour laws of India and act accordingly. No other way out.

Lakshmi, UK, says: I completely agress with Tapan, Vohra. As a software engineer, I know, the difficult of work stress combine with this there is a interpersonal problems and other issues. I was once sufferer becoz, of depression. I was lucky to recognize and take control of my life but, how many people can do it for their self ? My self-assessment (intutitive) is around 70-90% IT guys are suffering from some form of mental illness. This should be the highest alarm issue for all corporate and government.

Tapan, Vohra, says: IT Professionals today are under a lot of stress, yet very few IT companies have the awareness or will to routinely access the mental health of its individuals. In these times of stress, companies should provide facilities for counselling for people who genuinely need help. Sites, like the Indian IT Professional Network, iITPRO.NET, should take up these issues with the corporate IT world.
