उनके 100 में अंग्रेजी में 35, गणित में 36 और विज्ञान में 38 नंबर आए थे. ना सिर्फ पूरे गांव में बल्कि उस स्कूल में यह कहा गया कि यह कुछ नहीं कर सकते. pic.twitter.com/uzjKtcU02I
“Bharuch Collector Tushar Sumera, while sharing his class 10th marksheet, wrote that he got only passing marks in class 10th. He got 35 marks in English, 36 in maths and 38 in science out of his 100. Not only in the whole village but in that school it was said that they cannot do anything,” read the caption.
The post has garnered over 17.4k likes and tons of reactions. In the current society, fuelled by the rat race of scoring high marks with the hope of getting into a good college has left the generation mentally exhausted. That’s why Sumera’s hopeful life story has tugged at the heartstrings of netizens.
