Humor Or Not: Exams, Students And Questions!



In a school certificate examination in a certain language in a certain place in Maharashtra something very unusual happened. The exam hall was filled with bright and expectant students waiting in suspense for the question papers to be distributed. When the suspense ended and they had their papers in hand they hardly expected what they encountered.


Thee was a question that left them all shell shocked. Some of them got emotional, some of them broke down and some of them protested vehemently. Even most of the teachers on duty became very angry and supported the students. The exam schedule got disturbed and absolute confusion prevailed. Finally the authorities canceled the question papers on that particular subject and gave assurances for rescheduling. The authorities also promised to take stern action against the setters of that question paper.

The question was ‘how would you write a letter to your younger brother on your father’s sudden death’. They came prepared for the exams, but definitely not for this.

On the lighter side one student in a particular exam in a particular place somewhere in India found one particular question very intriguing and perplexing. Like all students of today he was also more familiar with the modern times and modern things like iPods, iPhones and laptops, and not of the ancient times. But he was smart enough to put in a very short and precise answer after pondering over it for a while.

The question was ‘Why did Lord Ram banish his dear wife Sita to the forests’.
(Ref.Epic Ramayana)

The one-line answer was ‘He must have had some solid good reasons to do so’.
