Prasad’s mother decided to go back to school in December 2021. She managed to keep her decision a secret not only from Prasad who lives in Ireland but also from her husband and another son who stay with her under the same roof for a month.
“Whenever I was in Ireland and used to call during Indian night-time, I used to ask where’s mom? And I was told that she has gone for a walk, I thought that’s odd that she got interested into walks. Little did I know that she was attending night school. She even managed to keep this secret hidden for a month from my father and brother, who stay under the same roof, “Prasad wrote.
Prasad found out about his mother’s night night school classes only recently.
He wrote, “Her days, started with learning all the lessons from SSC curriculum, one day when I was back in India, she showed me her notebook and I was amazed to see how good she was in Algebra and English. She also showed me photos that how their group of people who left education are now celebrated, now that they have decided to resume. “
Prasad added, “Even after so many years she was able to grasp different learning, and not just that, but was a brilliant student in her batch. And to tell you, her exams were in March and my marriage was in February she managed to do all the multitasking needed. “
Prasad’s mother not only cleared her SSC exams with passing marks but also scored a whopping 79.6 per cent.
“Sometimes I feel I am so fortunate that I had no worries about anything and was able to get to the position, just because of the privilege I have. Who knows what my mother could have achieved more? If she had the same privilege as me . I have always been very proud of my mother and now this would always imprint a lesson in my mind, never stop learning, even if it has to take an age of 53 to pass the SSC, “Prasad said.
