A picture showing a large number of students preparing for various competitive examinations and writing mock test papers on the southern bank of the Ganga in Patna has gone viral on social platforms, creating ripples in academic circles.
Students in large numbers gathered on the ghat on Saturday to write papers for mock tests. An engineer SK Jha told reporters that he had been helping the students prepare for competitive examinations for the last two months.
According to Jha, around 12,000-14,000 students reached Patna Collegiate ghat each Saturday and Sunday for the tests that were being conducted free of cost.
The majority were preparing for examinations conducted by the Indian Railways and Staff Selection Commission.
Earlier, a similar scene was witnessed at the Sasaram railway platform where students from remote villages gathered in the evening and prepare for competitive examinations under the light of lamp posts. Later, the railways provided drinking water facilities for the students at railway platforms.
