Pune, 19/6: A 43-year-old man from Pune and his son both appeared for the Class 10 Maharashtra board examinations this year, but the results brought a mixed bag of feelings for the family as the father cleared the exam, while the son failed.
The results of the annual Class 10 exams conducted by the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education were declared on Friday. Bhaskar Waghmare, who had to give up studies after Class 7 and take up a job to sustain his family, was keen to resume studies. After a gap of 30 years, he appeared for the exams this year along with his son.
“I always wanted to study more, but could not do so earlier because of family responsibilities and to earn to sustain our livelihood,” Waghmare, a resident of Babasaheb Ambedkar Dias Plot in Pune city who is into a private job, told reporters on Saturday evening
