In the world full of social media posts praising the toppers of the 10th or 12th board exams, there is a mother who congratulated her son for scoring 60% in the CBSE 10th boards. To show her son Aamer and others how proud she is of him, she took to Facebook and posted a beautiful message for him.
Vandana Sufia Katoch wrote, “Super proud of my boy who scored a 60% in Class 10 board exams. Yes, it is not a 90, but that doesn’t change how I feel. Simply because I have seen him struggle with certain subjects almost to the point of giving up, and then deciding to give his all in the last month-and-a-half to finally make it through! Here’s to you, Aamer. And others like you – fishes asked to climb trees. Chart your own course in the big, wide ocean, my love. And keep your innate goodness, curiosity, and wisdom alive. And of course, your wicked sense of humor!” on Facebook.
Vandana lives in Delhi and is the founder of the Clayground Communications. Her post instantly went viral and now the internet is saluting the doting mother for her post.
Vandana is the living example for the parents who pressure their kids to score high and become a doctor or an engineer and if their child does not live up to their expectations, they criticize him and compare him with his better scoring friends.
