After the suicide of Bollywood star Sushant Singh Rajput, everyone is an expert on depression. We Indians are always late. This is not the first time someone died of depression, there are many and many cases more.

Rohith Vemula-

Rohith Chakravarti Vemula was an Indian Ph.D. scholar at the University of Hyderabad. From July 2015, the university stopped paying Rohith his monthly stipend of ₹25,000 (equivalent to ₹30,000 or US$430 in 2019) (excluding HRA), with friends alleging that he was targeted for raising issues under the banner of Ambedkar Students' Association (ASA).

The university official denied the allegation, blaming the delay on "paperwork". On 5 August, the university set up an inquiry against Rohith and four other ASA members, two days after they allegedly assaulted ABVP leader N. Susheel Kumar.

On 17 August, BJP MP and Union Minister Bandaru Dattatreya wrote to the HRD Minister urging action and claiming that the "Hyderabad University… has in the recent past, become a den of casteist, extremist and anti-national politics".

After a series of flip-flops, the five were suspended in September.

On 17 December, the decision was upheld.

After the confirmation of the suspension, Vemula died of suicide on the 17th of January 2016. No one was arrested, nothing happened.

Tabrez Ansari-

We Indians post and speak up for George Floyd and bitch about America for racism, what about your own citizen Tabrez Ansari who was lynched at the public place. Arresting the culprit was so far away, his wife and family was been harassed by the public. Nothing happened we talk about racism.

Police Brutality-

Let's talk about the third hypocrisy of ours. JMI and AMU, police jumped off the walls of the university, even entered the library to beat the students until they bleed just because they were protesting against the government. Nothing happened, Media praised the police for there bravery of beating up unarmed students. They called Tear gas and water cannon brutality, some of the students crushed to death just because they spoke against Government.
