The father held the celebration, which included everything from firecrackers, to sweets, a DJ and shamiyana, in a bid to motivate his son Ashu after he fared badly in the exam, according to The Times of India.

"This is how I want to motivate my son. After failing in exams, children go into depression and some of them even take the extreme step of ending their lives. I want to tell such children that boards are not the last exams. There is much more to come in life,” he was quoted as saying in the report. He added, "My son can reappear in the exam again next year."

Overwhelmed by his father's 'cool' gesture, Ashu was quoted as saying, “I appreciate my father. I promise to study more in the next academic session to pass with excellent marks.”

The gathering was attended by friends and neighbours in large numbers.
