"When we can't afford to eat properly, how can I get treatment? Because of my condition, my younger brother has to work as a laborer. I don't want to live a life of a cripple. Who will take care of me all my life? I don't want to live, so I have written to the district magistrate pleading that I be allowed to die," Das said.

‘A poverty-stricken youth in West Bengal, who was crippled by a road accident, has written to the district magistrate expressing his desire to end his life.’
