Yesterday, my mother went to Pune with my sisters for my sister’s entrance exam. I hope she did well in the exam and scores well 🙂
Yesterday, I was thinking over the times when I was studying. My mother used to come to drop me at the examination hall. She did this for 12 long years. I remember very well, she came to drop me till my classroom during my 12th Board Examination. She waited outside the class-room even after the teacher got inside and distributed the question paper. I was sitting in the 2nd row somewhere in the middle of the classroom, but I could still see her from the window. I waved at her saying that I’m fine and asked her to go home. She didn’t move from there. She just nodded and waited there.
I started looking at the question paper. I started answering the questions. I looked at my mother who was still waiting outside. She smiled and waved goodbye to me. I also smiled back 🙂 She was just waiting till I start writing. She got immense pleasure whenever she saw me appearing for the examination. I got a lot of motivation because of her smile and I tried my best to perform to the best of my capability.
When I finished the examination, I re-checked my answers. I then handed-over my answer sheet to the examiner and stepped out of the class-room. And you know what, the moment I stepped outside I saw my mother waiting there for me. She always managed to reach the classroom before the examination got over. She asked me how I did with great curiosity. Like I did most of the times, I said that it went good and she was super-happy after hearing that 🙂
