65-year-old student fails exams 43 times


A 65 year-old-man from India is appearing in his secondary school exams for the 44th time.

Kanpur City’s Mian Jabbar Husen could not clear his exams for 43 years but still has not lost hope to pass it. His financial condition is very poor. He says his vegetable stall keeps him busy and he hasn’t got enough time to study.

According to him, education is more valuable than religion.

Husen’s younger batchmates have always tried to help him with the answers but he won’t take their help.
