A nine-year-old boy in West Bengal’s South 24 Parganas district has allegedly committed suicide, frustrated by his inability to qualify for a television dance show. Sandip Mondol, a class 5 student of the city, was found hanging from the ceiling of his house in Kasba area by his father Debkumar Mondal on Friday evening, the police said on Saturday.

He was alone at home at the time of the incident. His father, an electrician, and mother Swapna Mondal, a domestic help, had gone out to work. Sandip’s elder brother was also away, visiting their uncle in Garia.

Debkumar found Sandip’s body when he returned around 7 pm, the police said. Initial investigation showed the boy had committed suicide.

“We are, however, waiting for the postmortem examination report, after which we would be able to come to a conclusion,” said Murlidhar, additional superintendent of police (industrial), South 24 Parganas.

Neighbours said Sandip used to be an active boy, but he had started keeping to himself after failing to enter a dance show on a Bengali entertainment channel.

“He used to talk less and even avoid people. The failure had affected him so much that his performance at a recent stage show at Basirhat in North 24 Parganas was below par,” said Shyco Manna, secretary of a local club.

Sandip was due to perform at a stage show near Garia on Friday evening. Neighbours said they had seen him practising alone at a local park in the afternoon.

The television was switched on in the room where Sandip was found dead. The police said a reality show being aired in the evening may have been the immediate trigger for the suicide.

This is not the first time when a reality television show has had a debilitating effect on a child in West Bengal. In June 2008, 16-year-old Shinjini Sengupta suffered paralysis after she was rebuked by the judges of a dance show on a Bengali TV channel.

An 9-year-old Indian boy hanged himself after he was rejected in auditions for several television dance shows, news reports said Sunday.

Sandip Mondal, had auditioned for several television reality dance shows, but failed to make the cut, the Indian Express newspaper reported.

The son of a small DVD and CD rental shop-owner in the eastern city of Kolkata, Mondal had never received any formal dance training as his parents were not well-off.

When the boy asked his mother for money to go to yet another audition on Friday, she refused, saying they could not afford it and left for work, the Indian Express reported.

When the mother returned in the evening, she found her son’s body hanging from the ceiling.

‘Sandip learned to dance by watching TV. In the last few months, he auditioned for five to six reality shows but was not selected … He was depressed as we were told by his neighbours,’ a local police official was quoted as saying.

Several entertainment channels in India run competitive dance shows where the participants are often as young as 5 or 6 years old.

An 11-year-old girl from Mumbai, who had appeared on several television dance shows, allegedly committed suicide in January after her parents pulled her out of dance school as they felt it was affecting her schoolwork.

Psychiatrists have warned that such exposure to limelight and long hours of work and practice at an early age could be harmful for children.

India’s National Commission for Protection of Child Rights has suggested a ban on contestants aged under 16 in such shows.
