This inspiring news comes to us from Bhind (MP), India.
A 15-year-old girl’s sheer determination and drive to learn has seen her cycling 24 km each day to school and her efforts have borne fruit as she secured 98.75 percentile marks in her board exams of class X.
Last year, Roshani Bhandoriya was enrolled in class 9 of Mehgaons Government Girls’ School and she had to brave long distances on her cycle as there was a serious dearth of transport options for her. Being only 15 years old did not put her off and she achieved the remarkable feat of cycling 24 km to school each and every day.
Roshani has been very much encouraged by her good results in school and is now looking towards a career in the civil services. Her father is a farmer who is extremely proud of his daughter’s achievement and is now looking for a transport facility for his high scoring daughter.
The results for the Madhya Pradesh Board of Secondary Education Class X exam were announced a few days back and Roshani got 98.75 per cent marks and secured the 8th rank in the merit list of the board.
Till Roshani studied in class 8, she would get the service of the bus but not from class IX, where she had to fall back on cycling the arduous distance of 24 kilometers each and every day, back and forth.
Her father says that since she got enrolled at Mehgaons Government Girls’ School, for the last two years, she had to cycle to school on most days due to unavailability of transport options like buses or taxis. He says that from now he will make arrangements for Rosahani’s transport to and from school.
Roshani’s father, along with the villagers of Ajnol is extremely happy with her achievement because never ever had someone from their village secured such high marks in a board examination.
Roshani says that besides school, she would study for up to 8 hours in a day. She has set her sights firmly on clearing the prestigious civil service examination and becoming an IAS officer. Given the determination and talent that she has displayed, she will surely distinguish herself as she prepares to tackle the notoriously difficult IAS exams in the future.
