A great artist who committed suicide
The very original building that houses the Sampurnanand University, Varanasi. is a most significant architectural work that attracts an immediate attention of the visitors to the spot. It is a most popular tourist centre and those having an architectural interest find it as quite noticeable a piece of work. The sad background attached to it is the fact that the architect who brought such a building to existence committed suicide when he could notice that the whole building lacks necessary plinth level height with walls starting just from the earth surface level and even slightest possible rain showers made the interiors full of water. Realising that himself so great an architect he failed to realise the drawback beforehand, he started feeling guilty and committed suicide.
