During my visit to Sangrur, Punjab, my father and I interviewed the family of Avtar Singh, a laborer, committed suicide in Sangrur district of Punjab in August 2022. His family took a loan at the rate of 5% interest per month. A small loan to pay medical bills grew to approximately 200,000 rupees (equivalent is $2,500). Harassment by creditors forced the family's only breadwinner to take his own life. Thanks to Inderjit Singh Jaijee and Baba Nanak Educational Society for their work to alleviate the suffering of suicide survivors.
