Is 35 a good number? If it’s age, then not so much, because 25 is better.
But if it’s marks on an exam? In a world where even high-scoring 99s aren’t enough, what is a mere 35?
So I was pleasantly surprised to see a newspaper article about a family celebrating the graduation of the son from grade 10.
What did he score? Yes you guessed it, 35! Not just in one subject, but in all the subjects!
35 is pass mark. 35 and your good. 34 you’ve to repeat the year.
For a family that was surving hand to mouth, with limited education facilties, this boy cleared his exams, even if just barely, and it was enough for a whole lot rejoicing.
Surely the little things in life count (upto 35 at least)!
