Serving the country as an IAS officer is the ultimate goal of Urvashi Makkar, who has topped the Haryana Class 12 board examinations in the commerce stream, the results of which were declared on Thursday.
A student of Vijeta Public Senior Secondary School Karnal, Urvashi scored 490 marks out of 500. She also grabbed the second position in the state in all three streams.
Urvashi credits her family members and school teachers for her success. “Though I studied at least 10 hours a day, my score is unbelievable. I am really thankful to my family and teachers, who gave all their support to me,” she told HT.
“Now I want to focus more on my studies and join the Indian Civil Services.”
Urvashi’s father Vijay Makkar lives with his wife and three children in a single-bedroom house. However, the family extended all their support to her despite their limited resources.
“My eldest daughter and elder son are doing CA, and now my third child has brought laurels for the district,” Urvashi’s father Vijay Kumar Makkar told HT.
Elaborating on their impoverished circumstances, he said: “I sent all my three children into commerce as I could not afford new books for my children every year. My eldest daughter Twinkle took admission in the commerce stream, and their siblings – Dharmendra and Urvashi – understood my helplessness and followed suit.”
“Though Twinkle and Dharmendra had also topped in their schools, Urvashi’s success gave me more strength. I will leave no stone unturned in helping her achieve her dream,” Makkar added.
