The Day My 10th Board Exam Results were announcedWritten by Vijay Chidambaram
Hai! My name is Vijay Chidambaram. Iím 15 years old. Iíve finished my 10th standard board exams. Iíve written it quite well, I think. However, that is not what worries me. I know what Iíve written and also probably what marks I will get. What worries is whether my marks will be up to expectations of my parents, relatives and well-wishers
You see, my father is a doctor and my mom is a school principal. Both of them have their own ideas what my mark should be. Heck, I could deal even with them. Itís my relatives Iím most worried about. You see, day 12th standard results were announced, my mom got STD calls from my native place, asking when my results would be announced!
And also, people I only remotely know (whom I have met only once or twice) have started taking a great interest in my results. People I pass by on way to shops are asking about my results. Shop-owners are asking about my result. And oh yes, teachers working under my mom in school (of which she is principal are also asking about my results. My results, results, results... why are they so important?
