There is a saying that marks are just numbers on paper, and they certainly don’t decide your future, and a recent Twitter post by an IAF officer aptly proves this phrase. The tweet indicates that hard work, dedication and perseverance are needed to achieve a milestone.
“Bharuch Collector Tushar Sumera, while sharing his class 10th mark sheet, wrote that he got only passing marks in class 10th. He had got 35 marks in English, 36 in maths and 38 in science out of his 100. Not only in the whole village but in that school it was said that they could not do anything,” reads the tweet by IAS Awanish Sharan when translated from Hindi. He also shared a picture of his fellow IAS Tushar D. Sumera and his class 10th mark sheet. The now viral mark sheet shows how the IAS officer struggled to secure passing marks in his class 10th examinations.
