The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) announced the class 10 result on Monday, May 6. As per the CBSE statistics, around 91% of candidates cleared the exams with flying colours and most of the parents are happy with their child’s performance. Now, a proud mother has lauded his son for scoring just 60% in CBSE board exams and the post has gone viral for all the right reasons.

Taking to Facebook, a mother named Vandana Sufia Katoch wrote, “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!”(sic)

Not only she lauded him for scoring 60% but also appreciated his efforts during the preparation and for not giving up.

If every mother starts thinking on these lines, the world would be a better place to live!!!”
