M Yashaswini had passed her SSLC with distinction and wanted to join the Jyoti Nivas College at Koramangala, a college many of her friends attended.


She had an argument with her parents who said they could not afford an education at the college due to financial constraints. They got her admitted to the Adugodi Government College instead. The girl’s father works as a chef in a small hotel and her mother is an employee at a garment factory.


Yashaswini was speaking to her friend over phone at an STD booth, which her mother didn’t approve of. She scolded her and said she would deal with her after returning from work in the evening.


But that was not to be. Yashaswini consumed Metacid the same evening and was rushed to the Bowring hospital by her brother with help from the neighbours. She died at 2:00 am on Wednesday morning.


"We had only one daughter and loved her very much. We are poor but provided her with all that she needed. She wanted to join Jyoti Nivas College but we couldn’t afford it. The greatest tragedy in my life is that she died before me," said the girl’s father, Manjunath.
