Try, try, try again

A 73-year-old Indian farmer who vowed not to marry before passing the high school exam failed for the 38th time, flunking every subject but Sanskrit. The test normally is given when students are 15.

(Shiv Charan Yadav) said he found mathematics especially hard, blaming the subject for dragging down his score.

“Once I pass I want to get married to a girl who’s under 30,” Mr Yadav, who lives alone in Kohari village in the western desert state of Rajasthan, told Reuters.

He likes a challenge. Or maybe he doesn’t really want to get married.
