New Delhi. A 16 year old boy today squarely laid the blame of his poor performance in 10thboard exams on his father’s choice of profession.
Lashing out at his parents for not being caring enough after his academics, Rahul Dhingra claimed that the only reason he flunked in the boards was because his father didn’t struggle enough to raise him as a boy from modest background.
Rahul arrived at this conclusion after he read and saw various news reports in the last 3 days about children from poor background doing extremely well in recently concluded boards exams.
Since last 2 years Rahul had been regularly reading and sharing many such success stories on Facebook.
He was convinced that the only way he could score well in board exams was if his father resigned from his current job of CEO and started working as a rickshaw puller, cobbler or took up any other low paid job.
“I am pretty sure we see so many rickshaw pullers on streets only because these people care about their children’s future, unlike my father. Many of them must be from well to do background,” Rahul insisted.
The boy from Modern school, Barakhamba, reportedly had stopped preparing for his boards 2 months prior to exams and had been only coaxing his father to start struggling a bit if he wanted to see him do well in boards.
“One day he even replaced tube lights in his house with lanterns and bought a chula to cook food on, when his parents were out,” the maid of Dhingra household confirmed.
“He insisted on being served only onion with roti during dinner and even started sleeping on floor of his room,” the maid further disclosed.
“I told him many times that if you care for my future you must sacrifice yours. But he refused to listen, telling my mother that I was a complete gone case and needed a psychiatrist. But I stand vindicated now,” Rahul declared waving news reports of rickshaw puller’s son ranking 5th in board exams.
He refused to believe when pointed out that some of those success stories were fake, and argued that his rich dad must have bought Facebook to plant such fake stories to demotivate him.
Rahul even chose to ignore, labeling media insensitive when pointed that what these poor people achieved was despite the hardships and not because of them.
“When a chaiwala’s son can go on to become PM, why can’t I get 90% marks if my father was doing similar job,” Rahul asked.
