YESTERDAY, THEY worked hard; today, they are atop the world, bringing laurels to their schools and the city.
This is what has happened after the CBSE class X results were declared on Saturday.
Amogh Dikshit, who has secured 97.4 per cent marks, says, “To excel in every sphere of life will be a nice way to show gratitude to my parents who have done so much for me.”
Amogh, a student of Rani Laxmi Bai Memorial Senior Secondary School in the city, wants to translate his father’s dream and become an engineer.
“I’ve never thought of anything for myself. But, my father wants to see me become an engineer. My goal is to hit the jackpot, clearing the IIT joint entrance examination,” says the boy, who has secured 487 marks out of 500.
Since there is no cable connection at home, Amogh hardly watches TV. DD News is all that he sees. His batch mate Anshumali, who has secured 483 marks (96.6 per cent) with 100 in maths, wants to take up a unique study project in line with his family’s wishes.
Son of a medical officer, Anshumali wants to research the synthesis of science and spiritualism. He feels spiritualism has the potential to go beyond science. “It will take India to greater heights. My family is very keen that I go for such research,” he says.
An ardent admirer of Pt Shriram Sharma Acharya’s ‘Vangmay’, Anshumali says, “Newton and Einstein enchant me. Science can do wonders, but it has its limitations. But, character-building can make the impossible look possible.”
Mathematics is his favourite subject and he loves to play with complicated formulae.
Anupriya Dixit, another student of RLB who obtained 95.8 per cent marks, says she wants to become a doctor because that is what her mother wants her to be.
“My mother wanted to be a doctor, but could not become one. Hence, she wants me to be a successful doctor. I feel this will help me serve society,” she says. Her mother is a science teacher.
But, Anupriya disapproves of the medicos’ recent strike. “They should go for an across-the-table solution instead of paralysing medical services,” she says.
There is no cable connection at her house, too.
Her favourite pastime is listening to the radio. Three more students of the school — Amit, Vatsal and Nupur — have scored 95 per cent marks and above.
There is no end to success stories the city can take pride in. Garima Patel (96 pc) and Vibhu Mishra (95.4 pc) brought laurels for Lucknow Public School (LDA Colony, Kanpur Road).
Garima, who got 100 per cent marks in Maths and 99 in Science, also wants to become a doctor. Vibhu, who has secured more marks than he expected, aims to get into the IIM and clear the Civil Service Examinations.
He says there is no substitute for hard work. Manuja Sharma of Delhi Public School, Parina Magu of Army Public School, Akriti Chauhan of Kendriya Vidyalya, Cantt Road, Alankriti Saxena of Navuyg Raidance and Anshuman Bajpai of Bal Vidya Mandir have also done their schools proud. The toppers are against reservation. They also have strong reservations about the grading system to be introduced by the CBSE.
