Video of UPSC aspirant's weeping parents gets over 2.6 mn views

Tuesday, 18 June 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

A video that has garnered more than 2.6 million views on social media platform X (formerly Twitter) showed weeping parents as an aspirant appearing for the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) Civil Service Prelims examination was denied entry into the exam centre in Haryana's Gurugram after she arrived late. After the girl was denied entry, the aspirant's mother can be seen in an unconscious state as her father weeps in the video which has been doing rounds on X. "Papa! paani piyo. Kyun aise kar rahe ho? Papa, hum agli baar de denge.

Kuch aisi baat nahi hai (Papa, please have water and calm down. Why are you behaving like this? I will appear for the exam next year. It's not a big deal)," the aspirant said.

While the father said that a year has been wasted, the girl, in a bid to assure him, said that she can appear next year. Her father can be seen howling and cursing the school authorities. The distressed mother refused to leave the place.

Sharing the video, an X user Sakshi wrote, "Heartbreaking video. Condition of Parents who came along with their daughter for the UPSC Prelims exam today, as their daughter was not allowed for being late.  Exam starts at 9: 30 am, and they were at the gate at 9 am but were not allowed in by the principal of S.D. Adarsh Vidyalaya, Sector 47, Gurugram."

The video, shared on Sunday, amassed over 7,500 likes as many social media users expressed empathy.

 "Even I attended exam yesterday, they allowed me in after 9 AM too. But some colleges, it depends on type of principal present. He allowed candidates till 9:25 AM and closed the gate afterwards.

He was kind." Another user commented, "Respect for his daughter to be strong in this condition," a user said while reacting to the video.
