Uncle derserves a FREE CADBURYS if he clear it this time

It's a sad story... I'm glad my educational failures didn't leave me so badly off in life.

But maybe it is better to know when one is beaten and do something else?

Poor man...good for him to keep on trying....it is something he is striving for and there is nothing wrong with that even at his age....

I love that he says he is a "happy and contented person" and that's more than many people with advanced degrees can say!

He's 73?

And still trying to improve his marriage and employment prospects?

Hmmmm.....

Well, everybody has to spend their time somehow. Good luck to him

But millions of Indians get by, and married, with no education.

Sadly not this guy, and at 73 he's leaving it a little late.

You'd think he could have found someone who'd have him.

I am reminded of the scribe in Kipling's Kim, who signed "Written by Sobrao Satai, Failed Entrance Allahabad University". Proud to show that he tried?
