    In villages of the poor countries poisoning is the most common thing done by the people when they get the so much grief and not able to repay the debts taken because of their agricultural fields were destroyed due to bad climatic conditions or when their love was not successful. This is one of the most serious problems of the poor countries. This is happening not only in poor countries but also in several developing countries. They choose this option more as this is thing that will be in their near hand. But death is not a solution for grief in our life. Life will be great and happy only when we get out of them and achieve success. But as one of the human beings it’s our responsibility to rescue the person even though he wishes. Let’s see what to do when a person got poisoned. Sometimes if there are small children they try to keep the things whatever they get in their hands they too get poisoned.
