Filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra and film critic Anupama Chopra's 15-year-old daughter Zuni, who has already published two books of poetry and a novel, has now penned a poem titled "The Mountain Range" on exam pressure on students.

Inspired by filmmaker Shoojit Sircar's latest short film "#ReleaseThePressure" -- aimed at delving into the mounting pressure on students to perform well in exams -- Zuni has added her voice to an awareness campaign by Mirinda on this issue, read a statement.

A stanza from the poem reads: " A warm meal from mother for dinner/ A pat on the back from father/ A giggle from a sibling/ An air that does not hang heavy/ With percentage, ranking, marks/ But swirls playfully through the merry chatter/ Suffused with hope, with dreams, with unconditional love/ A Wonderland in the world of Exams/ Releasing the pressure./ Exams. Exams. exams."
