Madhya Pradesh man throws party for son after he fails in Class 10 Board exams!

New Delhi, May 15: We all remember the whip we used to get if score low marks in any of our subjects, let along getting an ‘F’. While most of the parents would thrash or at least reprimand their child for scoring low in their examination, this out of the ordinary father in Madhya Pradesh threw a party for his son when he flunked his class 10 board examinations on Monday. A civil contractor, Surendra Kumar Vyas in Bhopal threw an impromptu party for his son’s failure and took the entire town by surprise.
This odd celebration consisted of firecrackers, sweets and shamiyana, all that’s required to host a lavish party. Talking to a leading daily, he explained the motive behind this. He said, “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,” he said, adding, “My son can reappear in the exam again next year.”
His son, impressed by his father’s reaction, said, “I appreciate my father. I promise to study more in the next academic session to pass with excellent marks.”
