This post was shared by the founder and CEO of Pathfinder Publishing India Pvt Ltd, Maheshwar Peri. He shared excerpts from his son’s Class 5 examination paper where he was asked a question about social evils in the pre-independence era. “If you were a pre-Independence social reformer, what social evil prevalent at that time would you like to eradicate to prevent India from going backwards? Explain why?” the question has been read.
The boy replied, “I would like to start a Widow Marriage Act. If a woman becomes a widow, she can wear Sati or wear white sarees, she can tie her hair and leave it. If these widows never remarry. they would have a much better and happier life.”
Even the teacher considered it a “very good answer”.
“My son is answering a question in a Class 5 exam paper,” Maheshwar Peri captioned the post.
