The students, who appeared in that exam, were delighted with that question.
According to the Hindustan Times, a student name as Shamim Akhtar quoted, “We wrote the answer with delight as we never expected a question like this. He is my idol.”
Another student Shreya Ghoshal said, “It was a compulsory question (of 10 marks). We had to write a short profile based on the points mentioned in the question paper. But Kohli is so popular that even if points were not given, many could have written pages.”
Former Indian cricketer and former Bengal’s all-rounder, Laxmi Ratan Shukla was in very pleasant after that initiative. The Trinamool Congress’ legislator in the West Bengal assembly, Laxmi Ratan Shukla quoted, “Besides being an icon, Kohli’s life is about dedication, hard work and discipline, which can be an example for students. I appreciate the gesture and I hope in future there will be questions on sporting icons not only in Madhyamik but other board examinations as well.”
