Failed…so what? You Will Pass Also!

Today, like every year the results for CBSE 10th would be announced. The news channels will celebrate the toppers. The nation will swoon over the super brilliant brains. The sweets sharing images will be plastered across all TV sets. The news anchor will gleefully announce that some 83-84% students have cleared the exams.  Interviews of toppers would be broadcast on TV channels and printed in newspapers.

Amid this hoo- ha, the nation would forget those 16-17% of students who would fail to clear the exams. Now, the families of these 16-17% of students would feel seriously dejected, and not to mention the terrible trauma that a failed student goes through. 

Now what I am trying to outline is that when we celebrate the success of students, we should not forget the failure of students. If the education system chirps when its students succeeds,then it should cogitate also on why some don’t succeed.  For successful students there are many accolades to bask under,but I think that it is failure students who need these accolades the most. You must be wondering why?

The reason is that they must be knowing that they were weak at some subjects, they must have tried to overcome the weakness, they could have shun the exams but they took it. And when the results came they failed. It takes a lot of courage to tread a path where you already know that the outcome could be negative. So they deserve the accolade for putting up a fight, for being gritty.

Furthermore, however we wish the identical education pattern to be absorbed and observed equally by differently equipped brains, we will not succeed. And when a brain was not naturally equipped to handle Maths,Physics or Literature for that matter, it failed to produce the desired result. So, there should be no shame attached to failing in subjects for which the brain was not designed in the first place. When a student fights the battle of the exam with a brain not inclined to these subjects, he/she should be lauded for making an effort that was a herculean task for him or her

And when a school cherishes the glory of their successful students, it should also inspire the failed students to do better next time by providing extra classes and psychological cushion. Because, it is the psychology of your mind that tells you to suicide when you fail. We must do everything as a society to curb the suicidal tendency in failed students. 

When someone fails for the first time the world comes crashing down, it feels that things will never change and in these moments of diametrical dejection the thought to end life reverberates in mind. We should tell the inexperienced and tender minds that failing is just the part of fighting and the time doesn’t remain the same. Things change and improve in this world, so they should not lose hope and look forward to a better tomorrow. 

Moreover, I think that this year there should be interviews of students, on TV and in print media ,who failed last year but passed this year.

And at last, we should refrain from being a society that is full of uncle and aunties who are unmindful of the pain that a failure student goes through.

देख लिया ...

देख लिया तेरा बाजार ,

देख लिया तेरा ब्योपार ,

देख लिया तेरा संसार ,

देख लिया तेरा आर पार I

देख लिया वो कंठी माला ,

देख लिया रामनामी दुशाला,

देख लिया वो गज मतवाला ,

देख लिया वो अमृत प्याला I

देख लिया वो सूरज चंदा ,

देख लिया वो जमुना गंगा I

देख लिया वो रोती आँखें ,

देख लिया वो सोती सांसें I

देख लिया वो अम्बर वाला ,

देख लिया वो नंबर वाला I

देख लिया वो थका नगीना ,

देख लिया वो बिका पसीना I

देख लिया वो अटकी सांसें ,

देख लिया वो ठिठकी आसें I

देख लिया वो समय का पहिया,

देख लिया वो जीवन नैया I

रोज़ रोज़ कुछ....

रोज़ रोज़ कुछ सिलना होता है,
रोज़ रोज़ कुछ रिसना होता हैI

रोज़ रोज़ कुछ मिटना होता है,
रोज़ रोज़ कुछ पिटना होता हैI

रोज़ रोज़ कुछ जीतना होता है,
रोज़ रोज़ कुछ हारना होता हैI

रोज़ रोज़ कुछ हंसना होता है,
रोज़ रोज़ कुछ रोना होता हैI

रोज़ रोज़ कुछ सकारना  होता है ,
रोज़ रोज़ कुछ मुकरना  होता है I

रोज़ रोज़ कुछ जीना होता है ,
रोज़ रोज़ कुछ मरना  होता हैI
