New Delhi: 35 marks in English and 36 in Mathematics, most of the Indian parents wouldn't be happy with such figures on the marksheet of their children. However, one such person is there, who is still proud and has achieved a lot despite scoring such marks in his class 10.
The person, who shared this marksheet is an IAS officer and interestingly the marksheet is also of an IAS officer. It can be seen how much the officer has scored in each subject. The motive behind sharing the mark sheet is to motivate students, who are scared of their board results.
The IAS officer named Tushar D Sumera is the district collector of Bharuch, Gujarat and in the markesheet, it is clearly visible that he scored only passing marks in his 10th standard. Interestingly, the person who shared the mark sheet is also an IAS officer named Awanish Sharan. The 2009 batch IAS officer from the Chhattishgarh cadre Sharan, posted a picture of Sumera along with a blurred report card on Twitter.
"Sharing his mark sheet, Bharuch Collector Tushar Sumera has said that he scored only passing marks in class 10 board exams. Out of 100, he got only 35 in English and 36 in Maths. Not only in the entire village but also at his school, he was told that he can't do anything," the post read.
Tushar Sumera also took to the micro-blogging site Twitter and thanked Sharan.
Sumera became an IAS officer in 2012 and reportedly, he worked as a teacher before clearing the country's toughest exam UPSC.
During the results of the board exams, many students go through anxiety or depression thinking the board exam results will decide their futures. To some extent it does, but there are also people, who despite poor performance in school, have gone too far in life and have achieved their dream. The story of Tushar D Sumera is the same.
