Life and Result
Failing in the exams, not end of the world
A girl ending her life and ten others attempting suicide across the Valley after class XII results were declared recently is shocking! One wonders why have qualifying exams and securing good marks become so important for this generation?
Young boys and girls need to realize that failing in exams is not the end of the world. Life exists very much beyond the class XII exams results. They need to bear in mind that the parents who bring them up and want their children to shine put everything at stake for their sake. By committing a suicide or by making an abortive bid to end their lives they tear the heart of their parents apart.
Times have changed and having big degrees with good marks is not all. What matters is how efficient and capable a person is. In private and corporate sector deliverance matters. No company is interested in how many marks a person has secured and how many formulae he remembers. Degree to some extent helps a person to gain entry but he cannot survive by just having a degree. People who don’t have a sound academic record are in no way inferior to such people who have better academic record. There are many instances which prove that people without degrees have achieved what people having degrees could not.
It is astounding that children in Kashmir are made to believe that scoring good marks in class-X and class XIIth secures their future. Had that been the case many doctors and engineers would not have been sitting idle. Our younger generation needs to believe in itself rather than mugging up the formulae and solutions which become insignificant soon after one leaves the school.
Our elders need to realize that intimidating children doesn’t help anyone’s cause. It pushes them to brink and they end up taking extreme steps. Parents should see what exactly their children are interested in rather than them imposing their interests on them. Every parent wants his child to excel in life and see him perform well. This puts extraordinary pressure on children and when they fail to live up to the expectations they, out of fear at times, are compelled to over react. But young children committing suicide is alarming. This shows that there is something seriously wrong with our system. We need to wake up and take a stand before it becomes too late. It seems our younger generation has become hypersensitive and impatient. These are not good signs; suicide is a cowardly act as by doing so person tends to run away from everything. Our young boys and girls are our future. They have to be strong rather than being a depressed and impulsive lot. Youth are strength of every nation. They have to lead the nation from the front and history stands testimony to the fact that Kashmiri youth have always been at the forefront of things.
Our youth and children are our strength we have to nurture them and not intimidate them.
