One of the things that evoke your school days nostalgia are the charts of fruits, vegetables, good habits, bad habits, etc. We used to have homework of sticking them in our notebooks and reading them out. But that was that. Who would have thought, the poster of Adarsh Balak aka the Ideal boy would show up in a doctor's clinic somewhere far away? Comedian Stephen Fry shared a picture of the Adarsh Balak poster he spotted in his doctor's surgery room. While it amused the comedian-actor, the Indian Twitterati was equally surprised.

Stephen Fry when he shared the poster was calculating his points on qualifying as Adarsh Balak. He mentioned how he has tried to live it up to those points. For Indian Twitter users, it was much more than just a school activity. Some of them wanted to know who was this doctor, while others were just blissfully surprised at Stephen's discovery.

Decidedly odd of my doctor to hang this in his surgery. I've tried to live up to it though. Haven't managed to "Pray Almighty" or "Join NCC", otherwise I'm getting there. pic.twitter.com/Dl52jaqang

Twitterati was indeed thrilled to see this picture coming on their Twitter timelines. Check how some of the users reacted.
Jesus Christ. I NEVER in a million years would have imagined you, Stephen, sharing an Āadarsh Bāalak chart. This is peak Indian school stationery we'd have to buy for primary school projects, etc. I'm so thrilled that your doctor would have it.😅😅😅

Moral Science Lessons Back in Time
is your doctor Indian, by any chance? This what they put up in class when I was a school and we had to buy it at stationery shops to cut out and stick in scrap books for "moral science"

Memories Pouring In
Oh! this is so nostalgic. We were made to get entire booklets of these posters and make scrapbooks out of them as kids here in India and they ranged from The Ideal Boy/Girl to Being a Good Child to Cleaning your Neighbourhood. It's quite a meme now.

Considered a part of Indian stationery, these charts do bring back several memories. What's even funnier that these days, the characters have been made into memes. But who would have ever imagined the Indian Adarsh Balak would hang on it a doctor's surgery room.
