A father in Madhya Pradesh’s Sagar city recently threw a party for his son, after the latter failed in the Class 10 board examination. Surendra Kumar Vyas, the father, who’s a civil contractor, apparently wanted to cheer up and motivate his son Ashu.
The party, which was attended by friends and relatives of the family, included bursting of firecrackers, a DJ session and a sumptuous spread. The father, while speaking to TOI 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.”
