Fear is one of the ‘deadliest’ enemies of mankind. Most of the candidates have a fear of ‘results’ than they have for ‘exams’. It is the kind of fear that doesn’t let you sleep properly as many students would think how their parents will react after seeing the result.
The best motivation that sons or daughters would always love to hear from their parents is that ‘Even if you get 0 marks in the exam, we will not scold you or beat you.’ This meaningful phrase would literally boost students’ confidence and that’s how things can be sorted out.
We must have heard or seen a proud father throwing a party after his son or daughter comes through with flying colours in the exam results. But have you seen a father throwing a mega party after his son failed in the Class 10 exam? Quite surprising isn’t it? Yes, it is.
This amazing father Surendra Kumar Vyas in Sagar district in Madhya Pradesh had other cool ideas to encourage his son, Ashu who had failed to pass Class 10 board exams, results of which were declared on Monday. Instead of scolding his son, Surendra Kumar had planned to invite the people for the party whom he knows by a hello and a smile.
Ashu’s father Surendra Kumar who is a civil contractor knew exactly what he was doing. He is well aware of the fact that nothing is going to change if he would scold or beat his son for his failure. Ashu’s friends, relatives and neighbours turned up in numbers to grace the occasion that sparked with fireworks and sweets.
Surendra Kumar told that children quite often go into a shell, usually cursing their fate and would end up committing suicides owing to disappointments in exams. The phrase ‘One sheet of paper cannot decide my future’. Ashu’s father gave a solid piece of advice to the students that board exams are not the last exams because there is a lot more to come in life.
“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. My son can reappear in the exam again next year,” he told as per TOI.
Seeing the best response from his father, Ashu said that he would put a lot of efforts in the next year to make a name for himself as the successful student. Ashu said, “I appreciate my father. I promise to study more in the next academic session to pass with excellent marks.”
