A civil contractor in Bhopal threw a grand party after his son failed the grade 10 board examination, reported media officials.
The odd celebration included firecrackers, sweets and assortments, exclaimed a resident.
“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,” the father said. “My son can reappear in the exam again next year.”
The son valued his father’s positive gesture and vowed to study harder in the next academic session so he can pass with flying colors.
“I appreciate my father. I promise to study more in the next academic session to pass with excellent marks,” his son remarked.
A large number of guests including friends and neighbors were cordially invited at the event.
