As we know India is going through a tough time ,dealing with the Covid-19 virus .A second wave is coming up ,and stats say that it will be at its peak in late April 2021. We are also told that the board exams of The CBSE and ICSE are going to be held May 2021 onwards. Offline classes have already started in many states, and as we know THE SITUATION DOESNT GET ANY BETTER. Thousands of students are affected by the virus every day. Many of them, leaving this very planet without their contribution for which they are studying for so hard with absolute determination. Lives are affected, families too. Students tend to make contact with other infected students and in turn spread the virus to their kin, thus contributing to the manifold piling up of cases everyday.

 

Students hold the very future of India. They have it all in their hands, and them suffering and dying is nowhere going to lead to the developed India we want. We are literally losing precious gems for the mere economy of other sectors. Do we want that? Isn't life and health more important than anything. As we've seen how keen some of the ministers are on continuing with classes and exams despite the rising cases and sufferings. In fact they are not bothered about the health of the students. Students were affected with the virus while writing the preparatory 1 and 2 (preparatory exams before the actual board exams).So how on Earth are they supposed to write a month long of exams while the second wave is at its peak without getting affected by the virus. Students affected would not even, hence get a chance to complete rest of their exams . Isn't that unfair ,given that college admissions are taken based on Board marks, which includes the marks pertaining to all subjects as a whole. Its clear injustice. What fault would the student have in this case.

 

Online classes that happened in these months, were not helpful, doubts were not solved. There was no interaction with the teachers whatsoever. Trying to reach teachers was like a big piece of task. Teachers were finding it so difficult to contact us although they were trying their best. The lack of fast internet supply and the chunky salary cut, did not allow them to do the best they could do, due to the lack of amenities. Despite the huge ICSE syllabus chunk, which was hardly reduced for the year of havoc, studentS kept their silence and followed on. But now is the time to act. Health and Life is no joke.

 

Also, none of the practical measures are being followed at schools. Social Distancing is not maintained, no sanitization and no wearing of masks by the students as well as the staff. The school managements do not even seem to care. The situation is taken for granted. I know how dangerous the virus is ,cause I've seen it first hand when my parents and my brother were suffering while they were affected by it. I used to be depressed every day thinking about them, while I was at home taking care of my grandparents and my little brother. It was very hard. Thankfully they came out of it ,but ,after so much suffering and loaded medical expenses. I having, a condition called allergic asthma ,and I know how hard it gets when you just have a cold, it's difficult to breath, with chest pains and bouts of coughing. With covid, it's going to be much worse for people like me and also for the general public.

 

At last, I'd like to say boards are not that important than health and lives. Everyone deserves to live. Everyone wants to fulfil their aspirations and dreams ,but without life and good health , there's no chance of it happening. THUS,I URGE ALL OF YOU TO SUPPORT THIS PETITION FOR THE FUTURE OF INDIA. Covid cases were comparatively very very very very very less last year and the exams were cancelled. My dad being a doctor and the head of the SICU of the hospital he works in ,has seen it first hand. Everyday he sees patients suffering, families crying and children dying. ITS THAT SERIOUS. We also are given to know that inoculation does not prevent infection like we think it does, so it's not going to withold the virus. It's more worse this year, and we will not only need cancelation of exams But also ANOTHER LOCKDOWN. ITS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. INDIA IS NOT INDIA WITHOUT ITS CITIZENS .WE NEED PROTECTION. WE CANT LIVE OUR LIVES WITH FEAR.PLEASE FIND A WAY TO CANCEL THE EXAMS COMPLETELY AND PASSING ALL THE STUDENTS EQUALLY FOR NOT ONLY ICSE BUT ALL BOARDS OR HAVING A NON-LIFE IMPACTING SERIES OF EXAMS,OR COUNT MARKS BASED ON PROJECTS.PLEASE DONT PUT TENDER LIVES INTO RISK.PLEASE.PLEASE SIGN THIS. WE ARE IN NEED.WE NEED THE FUTURE AND THE FUTURE NEEDS US.WE NEED INDIA AND INDIA NEEDS US.
