It was 11 March, and it was my result day of class 11th. I was not at all worried about my result because I knew that I didn’t perform well.
I had a deal with my elder brother that if I score 86% plus than i would be allowed to do whatever I want, buy whatever I want to and be open to explore my extracurricular activities like, playing, singing and all.
Now was the result time. I went with my mom to collect my result. I saw that our class teacher was telling the report and performance of the student in front of the whole class. I sat at the last seat with my mom.
Now, it was my turn. I went to the front bench and sat there. Suddenly sir said, “don’t you study at home?” That hit so hard. I saw him continuously and then he told me the result.
I never thought that I would get such less marks. I was shocked and terrified. Now was the time for family reaction. Can’t tell why but I had no fear or no feeling of being scared.
Stay connected to listen about what happened next.
I think this is the most obvious thing to say that everyone is scared on that one day of the year- “the result day.”
That day you get to know about your overall progress of the year. I know it was not a thing to tell but ya it’s obvious..who is not scared on their result day?? I would like to meet that persona. I was scared even on my 2nd class result day. At that time, we were told that the teachers used to promote all kids till 8th. But then also…I had that feeling of hope.
During my 10th..a guest arrived in my happy world…corona virus aka covid 19. I didn’t met him yet but it scared me a lot. My tenth went in lockdown and quarantine. While my boards got canceled after so much requests(I didn’t do anything) my preparation went…somewhere.
After knowing my preboard marks…I was not at all hoping to even score 85.
All 10thies were promoted to 11th without getting result. Now come the time when a student has to make the toughest decisions he/she had ever made. What to choose, science/commerce/arts.?? Most important question that the parents are also worried about their children’s decision.
I opted for commerce with maths. And the 11th classes began online. It was August and I was taking classes on my bed. Suddenly a notification pops on my phone kept aside. It was my friends messege that the results are gonna be declared till 12 noon. I googled and the news was true. I got panicked and waited till 12 eagarly(panicked).
It was 12 noon and I got another shock that the website didn’t crash…my classes were still going on and I entered my essential info and 🤞. It was the day…processing…loading….and loading.
And there isn’t goes..the marks were far better than those of preboard. That day I learnt that whatever the situation is…never lose hope and nothing will work out if you give up.
I would like to end this story with a beautiful quote below…
Patty, a milkmaid milked her cow and had two full pails of fresh, creamy milk. She put both pails of milk on a stick and set off to the market to sell the milk. As she took steps towards the market, her thoughts took steps towards wealth. On her way, she kept thinking about the money she would make from selling the milk. Then she thought about what she would do with that money.She was talking to herself and said, “Once I get the money, I’ll buy a chicken. The chicken will lay eggs and I will get more chickens. They’ll all lay eggs, and I will sell them for more money. Then, I’ll buy the house on the hill and everyone will envy me.” She was very happy that soon she would be very rich. With these happy thoughts, she marched ahead. But suddenly, she tripped and fell. Both the pails of the milk fell and all her dreams were shattered. The milk spilt onto the ground, and all Patty could do was cry. “No more dream,” she cried foolishly
Comment down below and tell us what lesson did u learn from this story.
Having a friend to listen to your problems and discuss them with you is the beginning of finding a solution.
Did you know? That our silent presence can be more powerful than a million empty word. Comment down your views and tell.
Following blindly like sheep can lead us astray. Making choices in life is like buying something at a shopping Mall. the Sales assistant may us all the products available, telling us the pros and cons of each of them, but we must make the choice in the end. the Final decision in our responsibility.
We are all stuck,we all have a journey to complete,and we all have a destination.
There is a traffic jam within our minds. And that Traffic jam is stopping each one of us from reaching our true potential. Imagine if we knew how to clear this distruption.no fumes of insecurity causing us to cough, no one honking at us, distracting us from what’s important and plenty of fuel to sustain us so that we can live a life worth living.
Comment down ur thoughts on this. I would be happy to know them.
Myths and taboos are huge barriers to unshackling our community of period shame. Add to this the misconceptions, fallacies and false beliefs that have nothing to do with the actual science. In fact, they are anything but science. Moreover, the widespread period poverty hits women hard—they struggle to create their own solutions using grass, ash or leaves, with grim outcomes. But overall, the silence around and the acceptance of the culture of shame is unacceptable and must end.
Myths and Taboos
Some false, misleading notions, propagated for centuries, that must end.
A menstruating woman:
-is “impure”, “dirty”, “sick” or “cursed”
-cannot offer prayers, take part in religious ceremonies, enter a place of worship or touch an idol
-should not cook food/enter the kitchen, doing so will spoil food and people eating them will fall sick
– will spoil pickle, bread and fruits hanging from trees
-should not have sex, and if she conceives the baby will be born “abnormal”
-should not take a bath or go swimming
-is a carrier of “bad omen”, can bring suffering or harm to others and must be segregated
Why Shaming Must End
These horrific taboos and stigmas are not just discriminatory, they are also against all human rights. The segregation, shame and untouchability can eat away at a woman’s self-esteem and keep them from realising their actual potential. Period poverty can jeopardise women’s health and safety. Women in villages, generally drop out of school after their period, to avoid the shame and inconveniences and enter a cycle of domesticity and servitude.
Pls help the women’s at your houses from all this 🙏
Nowadays, Theirs all around covid-19 with its Second wave. I Think rich are becoming rich and poor are becoming Poor. I know many people who can’t sit at their homes despite Seeing this Second flood of corona. No! everyone has to run to markets as if their clothes are Torned & They don’t have a Single Piece of cloth to wear. People want alcohols, as if they would die without drinking it. They Buy BPL grains, Pulses etc. and sell in their locality at higher prices. But the Poor are getting poor because some have lost their Jobs, few have no food and Privileges. The Middle class has suffered a lot in Case of business but if we talk about family, so middle class is the happiest in all to Play, sing, dance, Work, sleep & Talk Together like a sweet family. Nowadays people have Started making New-New dishes & delicious deserts at home. That’s great! Family time is the best time & this corona has made it much more special. People are getting new excuses to not get vaccinated, by saying that they would die by getting vaccinated. I would say that they would either be less educated or less aware. The complete world is getting vaccinated so GO AND GET VACCINATED!
