Kadaba: Financial hardship led man to jump into Kumaradhara river

Daijiworld Media Network – Kadaba (MS)

Kadaba, Jul 9: A man who jumped into the Kumaradhara River at Pulikukku in an attempt to end his life was rescued by locals and fire service personnel on Monday. Ravikumar (40), a native of Anantpur district in Andhra Pradesh, currently residing in Bengaluru, took this drastic step due to financial hardship.

He had clung to a bush after jumping into the river and was spotted by locals, who promptly informed the fire service personnel.

Ravikumar, who is unmarried and holds a diploma, migrated to Bengaluru six years ago. He invested money in online share trading and lost lakhs of rupees.

Ravikumar arrived in Subramanya on Sunday from Bengaluru and visited the Kukke Subramanya temple. After participating in the pooja, he went to Pulikukku, left his bag at the bus stand near the bridge, injured his hand with a sharp weapon, and then jumped into the river.

From 5 pm on Sunday until Monday morning, Ravikumar struggled to survive amidst heavy rains and high-velocity winds for 17 long hours. Locals who heard his cries informed the police and fire service personnel, who then rescued him.

Ravikumar's mobile phone was lost in the river, but Rs 10,000 in cash was found in his trouser pocket. Due to the self-inflicted injury on his hand, he was initially admitted to Kadaba Community Hospital and later transferred to a private hospital in Puttur.

    There is a common belief that share trading can make one rich overnight. In my opinion, making money in the stock markets without knowledge or genuine advice is practically impossible, much like any other business. It requires extensive knowledge, a deep understanding of business fundamentals, and technical analysis of the stocks or instruments you are investing in. Most success stories and high-profile investors do not expect more than 20% to 25% returns per year on their investments. However, new retail investors often expect 500% returns in a year out of greed and end up losing their hard-earned money or savings. Many even invest with borrowed money, which is risky without proper money management and risk management skills
