A civil contractor in Bhopal threw a party after his son failed the grade 10 board examination, reported Times of India.
The odd celebration included firecrackers and sweets, said a resident.
"This is how I want to motivate my son. After failing in exams, children go into depression and some of them even take the extreme step of ending their lives. I want to tell such children that boards are not the last exams. There is much more to come in life,” the father said. "My son can reappear in the exam again next year."
Student denied entry to examination hall
The son appreciated his father’s gesture and promised to study harder in the next academic session so he can pass with excellent grades.
“I appreciate my father. I promise to study more in the next academic session to pass with excellent marks,” his son replied.
A large number of guests including friends and neighbours attended the event.
