Treasure Trove
This kid proves why writing a leave application is too mainstream

All those who’ve written leave applications as students would know the pain of using the ever-so-formal vocabulary and beg for a leave in return. This kid, however, tells us not to follow the norms and instead schools us on how to sing a leave application to your teacher instead.

Be it Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, social media timelines and feeds went in a frenzy after singer and humanitarian Shehzad Roy, shared the video showing this little boy sing out a letter to his teacher asking for a leave, contents of which include the punctuation marks too and the video has since then gone viral. Hilarious! Isn’t it?
