Exams are the worst kind of mental torture that a student can endure. When the exams start, you have to lock yourself in your room and start cutting down on television for hours, if not skip them completely. And video games? Suddenly you will start loving all those video games on your PC, but you cannot play them. The nights become longer and tenser. Mornings come suddenly and it is only 2-3 hours till the exam, and you dreadfully realize that you haven’t even prepared the last chapters. Serves you right for leaving things till the last night.
But did you know it is not your fault? It is definitely not because of your laziness. It is all because of one plague that is forever mental anguish. Exams! We can bet how many times you have prayed to God to listen to your prayers and cause some disaster to either destroy the exam hall or do something with the examiners.
Well, whether or not your prayers were answered, the prayers of the students in Sri Lanka were definitely answered. Only recently, a national disaster struck (or in this case, a very convenient disaster for the students), and the country ran out of papers. And because of this, the government had to cancel all exams.
We really wonder what sort of dark powers that the students of Sri Lanka commanded that led to this. Sure, there is the talk of a shortage of imports and crises, but who cares? In fact, all that we know, it could be linked to at least a million students sitting in the prayer pose, and heartily asking the skies to lend them the divine aid. However, this kind of divine aid also comes with a massive toll. Some of those Sri Lankan will not be getting promoted to the next grade. Most of the backbenchers will be on the same level as the class toppers.
On a serious note, this speaks volumes about the crises that the country is going through. If they investigate the matter further, it comes to the light that the paper shortage is not the result of strong prayers, but because of serious financial crises and countless debts that the country is going through. Sri Lanka has also asked its ally, China, for financial aid regarding this matter. However, Beijing has not responded till now.
