Assume that your average marks are 85, excluding Hindi; you get only 2 marks to declare that you are failed in Hindi; the marks remain the same even after re-evaluation; you fought for over six months, in vain; what will you do? Nothing but breaking down! But Dhananjay Kumar never gave up. His characteristics - confidence and concentration like Dhananjay (Arjuna) in Mahabharata, have brought him the triumph at last.
Dhananjay Kumar, a student from Bihar's Rohtas district, was declared failed in the Class 10 final examination conducted by the Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) with just two marks in Hindi. Dhananjay applied for scrutiny of the paper, but result after scrutiny remained the same. Thereafter, the answer paper was got via Right to Information (RTI) which revealed that Dhananjay scored 79 marks instead of 2!
Dhananjay's brother told, "As per RTI, my brother scored 84.2%, 421 marks out of 500. Earlier, they gave him 2 marks in Hindi instead of 79, reducing total marks to 344. He is declared failed. We have been running to authorities since past six months. He is not able to study properly."
Dhananjay was keen to become an IITian, which was shattered by BSEB negligence. "I wanted to become an IITian. My dreams are shattered now. I wanted to commit suicide but my family helped me," said Dhananjay.
We hear about students with brilliant academic records scoring average marks and average students receiving red lines for subjects they would pass for sure. Some of them are even committing suicides. Now, is Dhananjay's story not an eyeopener and leading light of such students? Hats off Dhananjay!
