You have given your boards, and the nation has already gone into a frenzy about ‘where do you stand' kinda stuff and all you feel is the load of expectations imposed on you.
Let's accept it! We Indians, are totally obsessed with marks and ranks. I mean, whole life, we are taught, “beta accha padhoge nahi toh future kaise banega.” True that. But not to the extent that one feels totally hapless in life just coz they couldn't score well in boards.
You like or not, board exams are “the most talked about thing” in your entire life. They cause a great deal of stress and anxiety among students. So much so, that students have felt suicidal (even committed in many cases), gone through several bouts of nervous breakdowns right at the mention of boards exam results.
What is need of building so much pressure? That's exactly the point that Vir Das, comedian and actor has to make through a video titled, On Your Marks.
So kiddos, all we are saying is, whether you score well or not, just smile it out!
