I miss the time when we used to admire the achievements and achievers. I do not understand what is wrong with the new ALL-TIME-ONLINE junta out there.
First I saw people ridiculing Sarthak Agarwal, the Class 12 CBSE topper who got 99.6% marks. First thing first, Congratulations dude!! We are proud of you!! Now he did something which most of the people will not achieve even if they are given a 1000 chances or even if we let them write their exam even with an open book.
So instead of understanding that and asking kids to admire him and find a role model or atleast congratulate him, what we do ….. we ridicule him. Well that is something great ain’t it? C’mon folks he is what 17 or 18 or 19(max) and you are making trolls about him, did you for once thought how is it going to affect him. Probably not coz had you thought of it you would not dare do that.
Now today I saw a useless post on my facebook page which take about Gaurav Agarwal, who holds Bachelor of Technology (Computer Science) degree from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kanpur, and a Post Graduate Diploma in Management from Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Lucknow and now has topped the prestigious examination of IAS.
Now lemme tell you an amazing fact: For the first time in four years, a male candidate topped the prestigious examination who by the way is Gaurav. So he deserves some applause and not some sick and third class jokes.
I understand that they are overachievers and everyone[parents, aunties, teachers and god-knows-who] around you compare with them every now and then to make you feel bad about you but giving low standard comments and making abusive memes are not going to help anyways. Internet can be used for other things, don’t be another angry kid sitting in his dorm and abusing whosoever the kid doesn’t like. Be a sport not hypocrite!!
Live long and prosper \\//
