Man committed suicide because a crow sat on his head
“I AM waiting for the post-mortem report, but even I think he took the extreme step due to the crow incident. My brother had called my mother, Parvathi, and told her about the crow. He was very tense when he spoke. My mother rushed to an astrologer and on his advice told Anand to pray at the Hanumantharaya Swamy temple.”
The Bangalore Mirror reports:
Preliminary investigations revealed that Anand got very upset after a crow sat on his head on Wednesday. He immediately called his mother and narrated the entire incident to her, expressing fears that it augured ill… His mother tried to allay his fears and told him to visit the Hanumantharaya Swamy temple and light a lamp. Anand, however, was not convinced and went home and locked himself away before taking the drastic step.
Banu Prakash Sharma, an astrologer, said Hindus believe crows contain the souls of people who have committed suicide.
“After death, such a soul will not have or find any place to settle down, so it enters the eggs of a crow.”
Such are the facts…
