Despite, the Indians are struggling between life and death due to the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the students around the country continue to keep up with their exam preparations despite the stress and panic and one such picture is going viral, where fighting against uncertainties, a student continued to study for his Chartered Accountant (CA) exam even while being admitted in the hospital.

The IAS officer Vijay Kulange, the District Magistrate and Collector of Ganjam district, recently visited a Covid ward and was astonished to find the young man working hard on his books.

The photo was posted by Vijay Kulange, an IAS officer which showed that the man was sitting with his books, copies, and a calculator spread on a COVID-19 hospital bed, preparing for CA exams.

“Success is not coincidence. You need dedication. I visited Covid hospital & found this guy doing a CA exam. Your dedication makes you forget your pain. After that Success is only formality,” the IAS Officer tweeted.

A government official was deeply moved as he saw the Covid-19 patient studying on his hospital bed in Odisha.

Many people lauded the man’s dedication, and others called it a glorification of ‘toxic productivity’.

As people wished the CA student a speedy recovery, many also highlighted how grueling it must be for a patient to focus on exams instead of his health.

Others, however, suggested that if he is feeling better enough to study, he should vacate the hospital bed for more critical patients as several parts of the country are reporting a shortage of hospital beds.
