They make sure their trusted gods are always by your side. EVEN IN YOUR PENCIL BOX!
You can’t just use ‘any’ pen to write your exam!
This is a must to do before leaving home for the exam!
God help you if you even mention Eggs or Bananas in front of them
And Maach er Jhol – Bhaat is the customary good luck meal before the examination
They know your exam dates much better than you do
They form their own picnic spot outside your school with other parents
And all hell breaks loose the moment you step out of the exam hall with the question paper (this is also the unofficial viva session)
They’ll be lenient with you all through the exams
Yet! No matter what we say, the care of our parents is what has made us Bengalis one of the smartest in the world. This is merely a take on their never-ending protective love for us.
