Twenty-four students have committed suicide in Kota in the last sixteen months. What’s common between them is that they were all enrolled at one of the 130-odd coaching institutes in the largest, most successful coaching hub in the country.

The Quint tries to understand how a breeding ground for academic excellence is snuffing out young lives.
