Techie's suicide highlights plight of IT employees 15.7.2017 DNA: Top News
Farmers and the country's IT professionals hardly have anything in common professionally, but both are going through the same crisis at present, i.e. an uncertain future. While the country is already reeling under a spate of farmer suicides, the recent suicide of an IT professional in Pune due to his 'uncertain future' has sent ripples in the IT sector, which is facing massive layoffs. Gopikrishna Durgaprasad, a 25-year-old from Andhra Pradesh, had joined an IT firm in Pune only a few days before taking the drastic step of ending his life.

'Loans from moneylenders behind farmer suicides in state' 1.5.2017 deccanherald.com
