We can help them by improving our universities in INDIA.No need to go anywhere for indians and we can invite other foriegners also.We dont have the easy gun licensing system in india and our universities culture also not like that.

By ensuring that no one you know is left alone to be a loner. The perpetrator of the VA Tech incident could have been sent for treatment and the massacre could have been prevented had responsible individuals around the person done the necessary at the right time. So if you notice anti-social elements, confront them or at least point them out. Don't let things go or as most Indians like to quote, "Sab chalta hain".

Start preparing for an emotional solitude, extreme social pressure and academic exploitation. The more you can absorb, the better you will stand in peace. Else, develop into a hard core diplomat who can sneak out deals from every situation and every person. "This applies to specific conditions and candidates only" Now I am not going to tell you who those candidates are... (-:

Every responsible parent has a moral duty towards the actions of their children to SOME extent. In this particular scenario if this boy was given proper attention ,as he has shown visible symptoms of psychatric complications from CHILDHOOD, this tragedy could be averted . In many asian countries parents are hesistant to reveal their kids psychological problems in an attempt to protect their future. Sadly the consequences are devastating

I see a lot of thoughtless answers given here just for the heck of it. I think one has to understand that such things happen because the very fabric of the society is breaking down. The new generations get influenced by a lot of things that can divert their energies into the wrong things. Everybody should see this as a sign of things to come everywhere - India or America.

Its more important to give children a better and stable future and nurture them with correct moral values and solid family backing to see them thru the worst that the society throws at them.

This is like the tip of the iceberg and everybody should try and look within themselves to create and contribute for a better society. It would probably the very minimum that everybody can do to make this world a better place to live.....

People have to themselves realise that being non-violent is the best way of living. May be the main problem in the society is stress, which is on the up, mainly due to the competition. I think we should keep our ambitions low enough that we keep our own minds cool and hence the overall situation improves. If not, we will have to see more of these incidents in future.

Tell more Indians, not to consider US as a destination even for education or tourism. America is one of the most crime-infested racist countries, I live here, so I know how these crackers react everytime they see a brown skin person
