Ever since we’ve gained consciousness of our selves, we’ve seen or heard our parents giving examples of Sharma Ji ka beta/beti. That’s because they do everything right. From topping in exams to excelling in sports, Sharma Ji’s kids have been the BEST. And all we could do is either get angry on them or feel jealous (If you are not one of Sharma Ji’s kids).

But things seem to be changing these days, only because there’s a new competitor. Agrawal Ji ka beta. Here’s proof.

Recently Parag Agrawal, an IIT-Bombay alumnus, became the CEO of Twitter. He had been serving as the CTO for the last 4 years and had joined Twitter as a software engineer in 2011.

He secured 77th rank in the IIT JEE and completed his PhD in Computer Science from Stanford.

Not just Parag, if you look at other exam toppers from recent years, the trends are in favour of ‘Agrawal Ji ka beta’.

The topper of IIT JEE in 2021 was Mridul Agarwal. He scored 96 percentile, highest ever in IIT entrance tests.

I don’t understand why we were compared to Sharma Ji’s kids all this while.

Need more proof?

Shubham Agrawal from Meerut secured AIR 5 in NEET, this year. He was the state topper.

His score: 715/720.


Most of the time, desi parents give examples of Sharma Ji ka beta clearing government job exams like UPSC, SSC, etc.

Agrawals have proved their mettle here too. In 2013, Gaurav Agrawal topped the Civil Services Examination. He is currently posted as Collector & DM Tonk in Rajasthan.

Then there’s Sarthak Agrawal, who not only topped CBSE class 12th with 99.6% in 2014, but also cleared CSE with AIR 17 in 2021.

So, the question is:

Damn yes, it does.

Make way for ‘Agrawal Ji ka beta’. Sharma Ji’s kid you can move aside.

Feeling bad for Sharma Ji’s kid, tbh.
