Mother Faints and Father Wails in Despair as Daughter Arrives Late for UPSC Exam

In a heart-wrenching incident that has gone viral, a UPSC aspirant was denied entry into her examination centre in Gurugram after arriving late. The emotional reactions of her parents, captured in a video, have sparked widespread online discussion and empathy.

The video, which has garnered over 1,92,000 views since its release on Sunday, shows the aspirant’s mother in an unconscious state while her father wails in despair. Amid the distress, the aspirant is seen trying to console her father, saying, “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.” Her father’s grief is palpable as he laments, “Ek saal gaya baabu hamara (A year has been wasted).” The aspirant reassures him, promising to take and succeed in the exam next year.

The incident occurred at the S.D. Adarsh Vidyalaya, Sector 47, Gurugram, where the aspirant and her parents arrived at 9 am for the UPSC Prelims exam, which was scheduled to start at 9:30 am. Despite their timely arrival, the principal did not allow her to enter, leading to the heartbreaking scene.

The video, shared on various social media platforms, has drawn numerous reactions. 

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

Another commented, “Respect for his daughter to be strong in this condition.” 

A third user remarked, “A good UPSC candidate; she didn’t lose her calm seeing her mother crying, but it’s sad for the crying aunty.”

The UPSC Prelims 2024 was held in two shifts on Sunday — the morning shift for GS paper 1 started at 9:30 am, and the afternoon shift for GS paper 2 (CSAT) began at 2:30 pm. This incident highlights the strict adherence to entry timings and the emotional toll it can take on candidates and their families.

As the video continues to circulate online, it underscores the immense pressure and emotional stakes involved in competitive exams like the UPSC, and the need for empathy and understanding in such situations.
