Puducherry, suicide state

In 2016 I worked with Chennai-based journalist Sibi Arasu on a story looking into the possible reasons behind the exceptionally high rate of suicide in the coastal city Puducherry.

My photographs and Sibi Arasu's story synopsis can be seen on Dalam's website: http://www.dalamimages.com/portfolio-item/pondichery-letat-suicide/ (There is a link under the photo.)
