How India's Silicon Valley Became Its Suicide Capital

1543 ratings | 304481 views
The High Tech Mirage (2014): Once nicknamed India's Silicon Valley, Bangalore is becoming better known as the suicide capital. Intolerance towards failure and ambition to increase their financial status is proving deadly for the city's youth.

"I'm free to live my life, make my own choices. It's an amazing feeling to be independent," says Nilut, a 20-year-old call centre employee. She works 12-hour nights shifts and earns $260 a month. But overwork, stress, separation from family and a culture of intolerance to stress and failure have increased Bangalore's suicide rates by 40% in the last decade. "As soon as your firm needs you, you have to be there and work, be it day or night", confesses one IT professional suffering from depression. Providing cheap labour and building itself on the needs of bigger international economies, Bangalore is now paying the highest price.

This is a terrible state of affairs, the youth are becoming like the USA and locked into a faux slave labour force while the elders are dumped in a home for their commitment to educating the children. The wealthy International Organisations and some uber-wealthy Indians have tapped into a moral loophole of pride and wealth which benefits no one, especially the country as a whole. America is the same and people need to wake up as to which small powerful, criminal group is committing this "usury" crime. Well said Iron Maiden kid, engineering and science, save the planet dude, please.

Indians are really smart and very hard working but I have ran into some issues when working with them. The company that hired me for a project several years ago paired me up with a couple Indian programmers. They finished projects quickly and often they worked fine but when issues came up it was difficult to fix because their code is disorganized and often they steal code from other projects so often they don't always know how everything in their code works. Also, they often didn't admit any fault when they made mistakes. I made a shit ton of mistakes but I always let people know so that they could help me fix my mistakes but often they stayed quiet and worked alone making a 1 week project take 1 month. They're definitely doing better though! So I hope that they keep improving.

I work as a software developer in Cambridge UK and my opinion is that India would be better developing its software industry rather than serving as an outsourcing country. There are plenty of bright capable software engineers in India and they can do much better than outsourcing, which on the whole they do fairly poorly because the truth is - you can't really outsource IT especially not software engineering, it just doesn't really work very well due to a lack of domain knowledge.

Its not sad to see 110 people killthemselfs. Its sad to see the indian spirit dieing there. Even after being raped by the psychopaths of england India was one of the very few countries who managed to secure their way of life and knowledge about the human system. But all the people who leave their villages because they believe the lie of a better life in a city, suffer and make all the sacrefices of the past generations worthless. The "global" world is ruining India. A culture that was safe from invasions for 9.000 years and did very fine is now totally exposed to the psychopaths who build this world economy. I hope that the Queen of England with her indian jewlery is happy now. It makes me sick to my stomach to see how the people of India now run after the idiots of the west who bring nothing but destruction and suck out the life of millions of people. Except for some exterior comfort the west has brought india nothing but harm and destruction. And then some stupid as bread westeners talk bad about india, like a shithole without understanding why it became such a mess. Its because of their ancestors and they enjoy the benefits of the raping and plundering that has happened in India. Fucking disgusting people who think they are superior because they had bigger weapons 100 years ago and still they dont leave India alone. No they rather travel to india and are offended if they pay 10 cents more for some stuff sold on the street and make a blog about how india is full of liars and thugs. Sometimes in my weak moments i just want to fistfight this people until 1 of us is dead. But then I realize how much % of the west suffers mental illness and I see that karma is real. So I dont have to get my hands dirty on this scum that keeps walking on the heads of others.

I LOVE India and the people that make up this beautiful part of the world. I want to go back very much to Chennai where Dr. Vijay Bose and the Apollo Hospital network helped me and actually saved my life by performing a BHR (Birmingham Hip Resurfacing). This ended the 8 years of suffering I had endured from a mountain biking accident that turned in to a severe case of osteoarthritis and heavy duty non-stop sciatic pain that affected my sleep and daily life. I was ready to commit suicide because NO DOCTORS in the U.S. were able to help me. All they would tell me is that I have to wait until I was around 60 years old and THEN they can perform a THR (Total Hip Replacement).. I was in my late 30's and early 40's during that time...the peak of my career and I was dying slowly from chronic hip pain. This gave me a second chance at life and turned everything around to provide me a reason to live again! Now I need my other hip fixed but I do not have the resources as yet to travel to Chennai. Dr. Bose is still there but now has his own clinic. I am working on finding those resources now....and I KNOW that I will once again come to this magnificent land with the kindest people on this plane of existence. I LOVE INDIA AND THE PEOPLE OF INDIA! xoxoxox ~ Douglas of Avalon <3

Lol! filipino here.. I can relate..working in a call center industry is very very stressful indeed with all the changing hours and the demands of mentally challenge superiors lol!..but to combat it, I turn to travel or exploring new places.. my place in manila now has alot of asian restaurants and leisure parks to explore that is why I guess that despite the stress of the everyday world, philippines has a low suicide rate, because we now have so many beautiful things to turn to when times get rough

Indian culture encourages a work ethic that isn't healthy in the tech world. I've been a software developer for almost 10 years now and Indain software developers almost all have the same quantity over quality approach. This makes your boss happy but introduces technical debt quickly. Over time this technical debt starts to slow down progress and create lots of very frustrating busy work which ends up creating stress and burnout. Software development isn't physically taxing but it's mentally exhausting and can even effect your personality and ability to have healty human relationships. You become hyperlogical and obsessed with the infinte list of tasks that are not complete. TL;DR They work too many hours and are rushed constantly. They need to reduce the work week to 35-45 hours and prioritize quality over quantity.

The purpose of moving forward is to continue moving forward, even if there is no answer to what the purpose of it all is. Still more, we keep moving forward and forward. Where are we going? No one even slows down to ask. And forward and forward we go. WE call this progress. The whole stated purpose of progress is to keep on making more progress. And so away we go. NO time to waste on asking silly questions

no way  Hi: what is your exit plan? is it quick and painless? thx.
Poker Channel (4 months ago)
no way  from the 2008 lows, we have gained 300 % in the stock market. Just think about that. does it look to you that we have made 300% in production? All of this market is propped up by the national debt and the way that everyone is encouraged to spend spend spend with cheap loans. All of this is borrowed wealth that is part of the national debt. Just pull up a national debt clock leaderboard and you will see that your statement is 100% correct. All the money gets borrowed and then lent out again as credit and as fractional reserve lending. [Fractional reserve lending is where the bank only has to keep 10 cents (10% of any real dollar). So, let's say you have 1 REAL dollar. You put in the bank. The bank lends out 90cents. That second person deposits 90 cents and then 81 is lent out. So, even if there were $1 real, it gets multiplied very quickly.] The whole system is going to crash. Hey: no way . . . you seem to understand this. So, what is your exit plan? thx.

@noway  I have been aware of this. My kids literally have no future. Within this life time, it is all ending. I work in many incarceration facilities (jail, prison, and state mental hospital). When the credit collapse comes (ie when credit freezes and all the fake wealth of the USA comes to a crashing halt), there will be no food at the supermarket, no water out of your faucet, and no gas at the gas station. The workers at the jails will walk off. The prisoners will break out and it will be very ugly. I think for that reason, one must be prepared to end oneself before the thugs robs you, rapes you, etc.

They will replace you if you have issue or drop dead in a minute, it's an assembly line for them and they have endless line of people waiting to join the assembly line every year.
