The Hush Post: There is more to life than standard X examination results. When a boy from Sagar failed in his class X exams, his dad did something unusual to motivate him: He threw a party just in order to let his son know that he is not unhappy with the results and that he would want his son to come out of this failure.
Surendra Kumar Vyas, a resident of Shivaji ward in Sagar, Madhya Pradesh said: “This is how I want to motivate my son. After failing in exams, children go into depression and some of them even take the extreme step of ending their lives. I want to tell such children that boards are not the last exams. There is much more to come in life,” he said, adding, “My son can reappear in the exam again next year.”
The party began and there were firecrackers, sweets and shamiyana — everything to celebrate this odd occasion.
His son Ashu said, “I appreciate my father. I promise to study more in the next academic session to not only pass but score excellent marks.”
Friends and neighbours came in huge numbers to not only attend the party and but to also encourage the young boy who failed.
