The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) declared the CBSE Class 10 Result on May 6, and a Facebook post by a mother on board result has gone viral for all the right reasons. While everyone was busy praising the toppers of the board exam, Vandana Sufia congratulated her son for scoring 60% in the CBSE 10th Board Exam.
Vandana Sufia Katoch wrote on Facebook, ''Super proud of my boy who scored a 60% in Class 10 board exams. Yes, it is not a 90, but that doesn’t change how I feel. Simply because I have seen him struggle with certain subjects almost to the point of giving up, and then deciding to give his all in the last month-and-a-half to finally make it through! Here’s to you, Aamer. And others like you – fishes asked to climb trees. Chart your own course in the big, wide ocean, my love. And keep your innate goodness, curiosity, and wisdom alive. And of course, your wicked sense of humor!''
As soon as the post went viral, many people, including parents and students praised her for being an understanding mother. While one user wrote, ''I surely don't know you. But I am super super proud of you", another wrote, "You are a great mother, and we couldn’t agree more."
