Board exams are the bane of a student’s life. The sheer pressure surrounding it is so intense, many kids breakdown every year and horrific instances are reported.
The hours of studying for that one moment in the day, nights of staying up, cramming, learning and burning the midnight oil- all are experienced by many students every passing year. Our parents may be hard on us, but they are equally hard on themselves and feel the pressure too. And the fear of disappointing them, is the worst fear of all.
Soda brand Mirinda recently released a video of this very emotion and equation. The result is a heartbreaking account of what our education system has been reduced to. It’s an open letter from kids to their mummy and papas and am sure it will get you crying.
Can we give these teens a bloody break?
