A 17-year-old girl from a poor family who dreamt of becoming a doctor decided to end her life, leaving her family, friends and students across the country in shock. Who let Anitha down? What drove this bright girl -- who fought against the odds and had big ambitions -- to suicide? She scored an impressive 1,176 out of 1,200 marks in Class 12 board examinations, but couldn't qualify for a medical college seat after she got 86 out of 700 in the now-compulsory National Eligibility cum Entrance Test, also known as NEET. Many say she was let down by the "system" that seems to favour the better off. How can India prevent more Anithas? We debate on The Buck Stops Here.
