As kids, if there is something we hated more than that teacher who would always take away our free periods, it was writing leave applications.
We pretty much had a set format for leave applications back in our days but kids these days are way smarter. A kid from Pakistan ditched the old paper-and-pen way and decided to sing out his entire leave application to his headmaster in Punjabi folk style.
The video was shared by popular Pakistani singer Shehzad Roy and and has gone viral not just because the kid is singing his application, it’s because the child remembers to add all the correct punctuation while singing, which has made Twitter rally for his chutti!
Check out the adorable video right here:

While most people enjoyed the innocent video, some were quick to point out the poor education system:
What the real problem is our education system… We have learnt the same application by heart in 1983-84, and same is still on.. What a revolution in Edn system we have seen in last 3 dacades

I feel very sorry for this beautiful and inteligent kid. He tried his best to learn. This our education system after 30 years of PMLn govt on punjab & 70 year of independence @CMShehbaz @MaryamNSharif @hinaparvezbutt @Marriyum_A @MaizaHameed just imagine your kid in his face..

Hahahaha super funny. But at same time very very very unfortunate. I m sure 1 teacher was making this video. In the end she laughs. This is our future…..

Kindly grant leave to the teacher too. Permanently

Even today in private schools students are forced and encouraged to use this method for learning. They are not even allowed to make sentences by themselves or write the essays. What will be the future of Pakistan??? They r just producing Duffers and running a business!
