This is nice to know. Many of the candidates who attempt SSLC at a late age do so for the sake of achievement or to fulfill a job criterion. The authorities should make it easier for such candidates to appear and pass this examination.
We are a culture that always respected education. The only problem is the education barrier kept either chasing or raising from time to time. In the ancient times it was Vedas/Upanshads. It was Persian during Mughal era. Later it was SSLC /FA/BA during British days. Now it is BTech/MBA. But unfortunately a School Certificate does not give one any standing in present society. Never the less I respect this gentleman for still holding the SSLC diploma dear to his heart and for toiling for it
