Srik, yen idu tragedy king atha iddera?

Diya, failuer is the corner stone of success. As if all the drivers on road know proper driving. Ask any driver to do "right reverse" 60% dont know what it is and other 40% say what is that?

Why do you need to worry. There is allways an other day, another car and another inspector.

Next time you will know not to do that. Take the test again.You will get thru.

don't worry diya, there's a next chance. perhaps we shall see diya passing the test successfully, and maintain her high-spirited manner! (i assumed this out of the conversation, forgive me if i've said something wrong)

all the best!
