Dear Parent,

The board exam results are out. We know you will be really anxious for your child to get a 90% or to at least beat your neighbour’s son or daughter. It’s a matter of your reputation and your standing in society.  But please remember, amongst the children who have given the exams is an artist who doesn’t need to understand Math. There’s an entrepreneur who doesn’t care about History or English literature. There’s a musician whose Chemistry marks won’t matter. There’s a sports person whose physical fitness is more important than Physics.

If your child does get top marks then great. But if he or she doesn’t then don’t take away their self-confidence from them. Tell them it’s ok, it’s just an exam. They are cut out for much bigger things in life. Tell them, no matter what they score you love them and will not judge them. Please do this and if you do, watch your children conquer the world. One exam or 90 percent won’t take away their dreams and talent.

We felt like sharing the gist of a message from Mr. Karthik Krishnan, one of our Deans at Deeksha, to his children today: “It’s been a really frustrating roller coaster ride for you – from paper leaks to re-exams to uncertainty over CET. You have done well to stay focussed throughout. And today you stare at the PU results. Yes, there will be loads of happiness for many. But for some, it may be a day to forget. You may feel that you cannot face failure. But the truth is, this result day is just a tiny little part of your life’s journey. The future will give you umpteen chances to hit back at your critics and prove them wrong. It will give you thousands of reasons to go on. There is no single person on earth who has not seen a failure. It is in times like these that your true character emerges. My wishes and prayers are with you guys. Hope all of you come out with flying colours. Remember there is always somebody who cares for you, accepts you in spite of any failure. I’m one of them :) so stay spirited and stay strong!”

All of us at Deeksha stay committed to support our children and ensure that each of our children is strong and confident enough to face any adversity. Please reach out to us for any support.
