It is 9:25pm
I am writing this peace to console myself, to gain solace and to restart my journey to success, a journey that aims exactly same as previous.

It was 9:15
“Prom- attend Piyush’s phone.”
“Okay mamma”
I hit the attend button and suddenly a harsh sound came that almost killed me.
“Hello Prom, I have good news for you.”
“Calm down Piyush, for what in the hell you are so happy for me.”
“You have been selected for the second level of NTSE (National talent Search Examination)”
“Ha-ha, please tell me the truth, say it isn’t correct”
Although I didn’t believed him but abruptly my heart started pumping so fast that it became almost impossible to hide my emotions and suddenly I started crying,
“Mamma your child has----“
“Wait - wait Prom, what I said can you please pardon me”
“You said that Prom you have qualified for the second level of NTSE”
“Sorry brother, I am really sorry, I am too excited and because of this I told you wrong, actually it’s me who have been selected for second level of examination and not you, by the way please give me your enrolment number so that I can recheck if you have been selected or not”
“Tell me this isn’t true please, I beg”
“C’mon prom don’t be coward, face the situation as it is, give me your roll number”
“Okay its-23114-0088-343”
He told me to hole the phone and I followed

It was 9:20
Alas, I couldn’t qualify for the second level. I immediately took the admit card and teared it in hundreds of pieces. I again failed, I could not do anything. People say i am talented but they are false. The truth is that I am dumb, dull and foolish.
Nothing could console me, not even this piece of writing. What mean, vulgar news he had told me. I was well when I wasn’t aware of the truth. He isn’t my friend. A dumb may never have intelligent friends, never.

This is great! Your grammar is a bit off, but nothing too terrible. :) I loved this story, it explains how I feel when I am not picked for somethin I wish to be. Excellent work, please keep writing, you are fantastic!                                                                                                           I read in the comments that you speak hindi. My friend Vidhi speaks hindi as well, and I just thought that it was cool/ :)

It was very good, I like it :) There were a few grammatical errors, but nothing too agregious. Is English a second language for you? The grammar things are errors that are common for second language English speakers. Still, good job

"Respect existence or expect resistance"

Deciding if someone is smart or dumb is not for the outside world to decide. It is for the person themselves, for only they have the information to judge themselves with. And even then, some facts may be hidden, because the soul is not a simple thing. If they have all the facts to judge themselves with in the first place, then they are the cleverest of us all, because they were the first to unravel the unknowable mysteries of themselves.  And the rest of the world doesn't need to know what they know. Only they do. And sometimes, that is enough.  This piece of writing was thoughtful, and deep. It had good language that flowed, and some parts that didn't flow; and yet, the message came across flawlessly. I don't know if you wrote this as a work of fiction or fact, but it is powerful in it's own right. Good work.
