Daughters of a labourer, a driver and a carpenter have secured top positions in Class 10 exam of Board of School Education Haryana.

Isha is a student of Shiv Shiksha Niketan Sr Secondary School at Sanghan in Kaithal district. She belongs to Barta village of the district.

Talking to HT, Isha’s mother Raj Rani said, “Isha is very good at studies and we were expecting that she would top the exam.”

She said Isha’s achievement has come as a hope for the family as her father Dharmendra is a daily-wager and does not earn enough to provide quality education and facilities to his children. “We could not send her for private tuition and she got the first position by self study.”

Isha’s teacher Shiela said that she is a disciplined girl and always focused on study. “She comes from a very humble background, but now she has become a source of inspiration for other students,” she added.

Sanju Rani of the Ashadeep High School of Karhans in Panipat district is also among the toppers with 497 marks.

Sanju belongs to a very poor family of Karhans village. Sanju’s father Rampal, who is carpenter, said he is very happy over the achievement of his daughter.

Her mother Anju, who is a housewife, says, “It is a big day of my life as my daughter, a girl from an ordinary family of a small village, has topped the exam.”

“In 2017, my son had topped Class 10 exam at the block level, but my daughter has proved that girls can even do better than boys,” she added.

Sanju gave credit for her success to her family, especially her father, as she said that he always fulfilled her expectations.”I also owe it to my teachers and other family members as they extended all support to me.”

She added that she did not go for tuition and dedicated eight hours daily to self study”.

Sanju’s classmate Tannu is among four students, who shared the second position.

Tannu, a student of Ashadeep High School of Karhans in Panipat, has got 496 marks. Tannu belongs to Pasina Kalan village and her father Ramesh Chander is a driver. Tannu says that she studied 6-7 hours daily and was expecting to be among the toppers.

Meanwhile, Hisar’s Nidhi also bagged 496 marks and shsred the second position. Daughter of a property dealer, Nidhi says she wants to become an IAS officer. “I will study hard to achieve my target. I have already started studying for my higher education and I will take best coaching to become an IAS officer.”
