Letter to your friend who has failed in the Secondary Examination, encouraging him to try again.
2nd July, 2011
I feel very sad to learn about your failure in the Secondary Examination. It is more painful to hear that you have taken it to heart. You should know that an examination is not the real test of one’s intelligence. We have been talking much about reform in the educational system. But, we have not been able to do anything in this respect.
Moreover, success and failure are the two aspects of life. You must have learnt what Lord Krishna tells Arjuna in the `Bhagvad Gita’. “Our duty is to make efforts. The result is in the hands of God”. So, continue your efforts. You will definitely get through this time.
