Never Give Up
It is easy to give up but difficult to keep fighting for something in which you have failed multiple times.

But to fall for 46th time and rise again to take the challenge, you need more than determination and grit.

This is the story of  77-year-old Shiv Charan Yadav, from Khohari village in Alwar is appearing for the 47th time for secondary school examination. He has failed 46th times but that has only made his resolve to clear the exams strong.


Not that easy to carry on after repeated failure

He first appeared for the exam in 1968 but failed to clear it. In 1995, Yadav cleared all the papers but flunked in Mathematics.

“Each time it so happens that I pass in some subjects, but fail in others. For example, if I get enough marks in mathematics and science, I fail in Hindi and English. This time, I hope to pass all,” a confident Yadav told the Times of India.

He has vowed to not marry until he clears the class tenth exam. His parents passed away in his childhood and he has been living alone for last 30 years now.
There are many in his village who admire and gift him stationaries to help him with his study. At the same time,  there are naysayers who believe he has gone crazy.
Charan wants to pass the exam, so that he can die in peace.


 

The Logical Indian community hopes that he clears his exams this time and salutes his unflinching determination of never giving up.
