The trail of death of retrenched 10,323 teachers continues to grow longer as already 102 teachers have died-many of them by committing suicide. In the latest fatality Himanshu Sutradhar , a retrenched teacher and resident of Town Pratapgarh area , breathed his last in the state cancer hospital yesterday, raising the death toll to altogether 102. Like all his one-time colleages Himangshu Sutradhar (40) had been suffering from depression after retrenchment with effect from April 1 last year as he had to maintain his wife and two children.

Himanshu had been suffering from gastric ulcer from the middle of last year and in the absence of proper treatment his ulcer degenerated into cancer but proper treatment was beyond his means.At one stage Himangshu's colleagues had made an appeal for financial help through social media post. He was in such a poor financial condition that his son's study in paramedical institute of the state had to be cancelled. Finally a small amount was collected but this was not enough for his treatment . His long and agonizing battle for life finally ended yesterday as Himangshu breathed his last, leaving behind a painful existence marked by governmental cynicism and apathy .
