Abstract

The tragedy of self-inflicted death has always attracted the attention of not only the medical fraternity but also of the philosophers and theologians. Suicide and parasuicide are the problems of major concern in today's society. Inspite of the magnitude of the problem, suicide continues to carry the stigma of shame and is creating barriers to the promotion of knowledge regarding the problem. This paper intends to provide a synthesized data regarding suicide in terms of various definitions associated with suicide and parasuicide along with a bird's eyeview about historical and religious aspects of suicide.
