Come Board exams, and students all over the country feel highly stressed. Parents are no exception. Despite the constant reminders from politicians and others that unhealthy obsession with high scores can be detrimental for the child, several parents are seen encouraging their children to ‘study hard’.

India Inc honcho and Marico Chairman, Harsh Mariwala, took to Twitter to share a letter from the principal of a school which has gone viral.

The letter urged the respective parents of the children to not take away the self-respect and the dignity of their kids if they do not manage to score well. It also asked the parents to stop stressing on the importance of marks and love their kids irrespective of what they score.

The Marico chairman was all praise for the letter. He also candidly admitted that he was never a "straight A’s student". "I emphatically agree that marks aren't everything," wrote the entrepreneur.

Twitterati couldn’t help but nod in agreement with the top boss. Several Twitter users, who didn’t do particularly well in their exams, came forward to share their success stories.

Kudos to Mariwala for being an inspiration for parents and students alike.
