New Delhi, Mar 11: Indian all-rounder Suresh Raina has revealed something which may surprise everyone.
Suresh Raina while speaking to Indian Express revealed that once he had planned to commit suicide.
Writing about Raina's ordeal, the daily said, "The train was chugging along towards Agra. Suresh Raina was sleeping on a newspaper spread on the floor, wearing his pad, chest-guard, and thigh pad as protection on that chilly night. So were the other 12 to 15 year-old boys heading to play a cricket tournament at the city of history and romance.
Late in the night, Raina felt a weight on his chest and even before he could open his eyes, his hands were pinned down. A big kid was on his chest, and started peeing on his face. After a brief tussle, even as the train was grinding to a halt, Raina pushed the bully off him - "ek ghoosa maara, and threw him off the train". Raina was 13 then, and struggling to cope in the Sports Hostel in Lucknow. "
This was one of the bullying incidents and because of such incidents Raina was finding it difficult to cope up in the Sports Hostel in Lucknow.
"It wasn't just verbal bullying. Raina has been hit with hockey sticks and the situation spiralled so much out of control that Raina recalls a batchmate was so shell-shocked that he went into a coma-like state. Another was so terrified that he will be hit, that he was about to jump off the dormitory floor," Raina said while telling about aqnother incident of bullying.
It was during this period that he was so much depressed that he wanted to commit suicide, but after a year Raina quit the hostel.
