We know that we live in a competitive world and each one of us needs to do well in order to go ahead in life. But constant pressure to do well often proves counterproductive.
In such a world, when a parent wholeheartedly lauds her son's performance after he scores 'just' 60 per cent in exams, the heartwarming gesture is sure to get noticed widely online.
One such post by a Delhi mom has gone viral online.
Vandana Sufia Katoch has wholeheartedly lauded her son's performance in CBSE Class 10 examinations after he scored 60 per cent. She wrote a sweet post for her son who came back from the brink of giving up and put in his best efforts to tackle the situation.
The beautiful post reads "Super proud of my boy who scored a 60% in Class 10 board exams. Yes, it is not a 90, but that doesn't change how I feel. Simply because I have seen him struggle with certain subjects almost to the point of giving up, and then deciding to give his all in the last month-and-a-half to finally make it through! Here's to you, Aamer. And others like you - fishes asked to climb trees. Chart your own course in the big, wide ocean, my love. And keep your innate goodness, curiosity and wisdom alive. And of course, your wicked sense of humour!"
At the time of publishing of this story, Vandana's post had got 1800 Likes and had been shared 6800 times.
"Wonderful post. Showed it to my son too who has just cleared his 10th and am so proud of him," says one FB user.
"Parents must support their kids like this mom did...kaabil banna Zaroori hai , kitaabi keeda nahi.... kids must do everything they want then decide what to pursue as a career," says another Facebook user in comments.
