Petite looking and sporting a bright bindi and neatly attired in her school uniform, Anjali Gurjar has made her institution proud. A student of the Inder and Prabha Sharma Girls Higher Secondary School, Madhya Pradesh, Anjali scored 98.5% in the recently concluded Class 10 board examination. Ranked first in her school, Anjali also made it to the Madhya Pradesh merit list securing the 10th position.
School principal Sunaina Sharma says that the institution will offer all possible support to Anjali to enable a bright future.
Anjali hails from Bhedi village. “My academic success is due to my teachers. Apart from regular school curriculum, my institution also focuses on cultural education and I consider myself blessed to study in such an institution that is in close vicinity to my village and this has enabled me to complete Class 10. A lot of girls have benefited from this school. While some girls like me come from the nearby villages, we also have girl students coming in, enrolling and studying from far off regions like Tripura and Mizoram (north east India).”
What’s also fascinating is that Anjali resorted to self study throughout Class 10 and did not opt for tuitions. ‘After coming back home from school, I used to make it a point to study at least 3-4 hours every day,” says Anjali.
