"To kill or not to kill?"
Euthanasia or Assisted
Suicide these are terms used to help define
the term Mercy Killing. It is to help a
person suffering from a painful incurable
illness to commit suicide. Recently the
concept of mercy killing was used in Kyunki……wherein
Tulsi kills Savita in the show as she cannot
bare to see her mother-in-law suffer endlessly.
Cut to real life and it is a tough act to
kill a dear one to relieve the person from
the pain. We asked some television actors
about this concept which is not yet legalised
Yes, Mercy Killing should be allowed in
real life. If someone is suffering you can't
bear to see them suffer, it is a very difficult
situation. And mercy killing seems to be
the only respite however in India we should
become more broad minded about this. Sadly
we are stuck up with the guilt feeling about
mercy killing. Fortunately I did not have
to indulge myself into this kind of killing
but my mother was suffering from cancer
and it was painful to see my own people
suffering. Thankfully it didn't reach that
stage where we had to go in for anything
like this and we tried our best to provide
her a support system. But 100 percent I
would have gone for it if given an opportunity
besides it's selfish to hold up someone's
life for one's own selfish reasons. It is
not murder but giving Moksha to a person
according to me.
be practical about it. We don't understand
how draining it is physically and financially.
Personally I wouldn't be able to do it,
it's a tough decision. However much we think
practically on mercy killing, when it comes
to our family members we get shattered.
We want to keep the person alive as much
as possible but ending the persons life
is not the only solution, the person could
be treated medically as much possible.
I totally agree with mercy killing. If
a person has an ailment and it is not curable
and he himself cannot end his life that
is when somebody else executes it for him.
The person would die anyways so by mercy
killing it's definitely lesser pain for
the person who is not capable of doing it
himself. The pain and grief is unsurpassable,
in fact I'd die everyday seeing the person
suffer so much. But this would have to be
done in a dire stage. My friend was in coma
for a week, o he was put in a respirator
for the whole week and we'd all pray for
him endlessly. The doctors had given up
hopes and he'd become a vegetable and sadly
his heart beat stopped so the doctors pull
off the respirator. I get goose bumps when
I think about it.
suffering. If the person concerned and
the family agree to it they have a right
to kill. For the others it may seem like
a joke or just a matter to make headlines.
It's a tough decision no doubt but it should
be legalized in India besides which law
is not misused.
is suffering from an incurable ailment
and in his proper senses he accepts it then
the person concerned should be entitled
to it with the family's consent. There is
no blanket rule to govern all such issues.
For instance when my dog was suffering the
doctors asked me to him to sleep. I prayed
hard but fortunately he did recover and
survived. If it is to be legalized in India
then the case should be taken to the courts
and then it should be taken ahead. If the
brain is dead and the person is kept in
an artificial respirator then the person
concerned becomes a mere vegetable which
may turn into a burden for the family. It
could be moksha if has the approval of the
loved ones else it is suicide or murder.
