Science topper wants to pursue research

Arts Topper Targets Civil Service

Srinagar, Feb 2: Nineteen-year-old Atif Jan of Tyndale Biscoe Higher Secondary School couldn’t believe that he has secured first position in Higher Secondary Part II examinations. He has secured 490 marks out 500 to top the Science stream.
Atif hails from a modest family of Nowshera area of Srinagar, his father Muhammad Ayub is a project officer in Entrepreneurship Development Institute and mother Parveena an employee in SKUAST.
“I was not expecting that I would achieve this feat but I was sure that I will figure in merit list. After hearing the news all my relatives and friends were elated,” he says.
The topper, who figured in the merit list in 10th class examination two years ago, credits hard work and his family for the success.
“Even if you are intelligent you have to work hard to strive for your goal. I would study at least for 6-7 hours and finally it has paid. Whenever I faced any problem in studies, I would consult my sister who studies engineering in Islamic University of Science and Technology. Without her support my success was impossible,” he says.
Unlike others, Atif has no ambition to become doctor or engineer but wants to pursue research in science to serve his society.

When she opted for Arts stream, everyone in her family raised eyebrows as they were eager to see her as a doctor but Arjumand Qadir Kala, the girl who bagged first position in Arts stream in Higher Secondary Part II examination, thought differently.
A student of Govt. Girls Higher Secondary School Baramulla, Arjumand Qadir of Sherwani Colony Khawjabagh Baramulla secured 489 marks in her examination and achieved the distinction of being the first girl student from the north Kashmir district to achieve such an accomplishment in Arts stream.
“I was always fascinated by the Arts subjects and was sure that my love towards the subject will reward me one day,” Arjumand said.
Hailing from a middle class family, Arjumand has made her parents proud. Being the youngest one among four sisters, Arjumand has proved that it is hard work and not the gender that can make a family proud.
“I am proud of my parents and sisters who encouraged me all the time. My success is a testimony to those families who feel that only male child can make their families proud,” said Arjumand.
She has all praise for her teachers and believes that without their affectionate cooperation, her success could have never been possible.
While discussing her daily schedule of studies, Arjumand said that she never studies during the night hours and instead utilized only day time. Arjumand termed prayers and hard work a mantra for success. Arjumand said now her focus would be civil service exams.
“I want to become a KAS officer and am planning my over all studies in that direction only. God willingly, if everything goes right, my dream to serve my people will become reality one day,” she said.

18-year-old Saba Tariq of saffron town Pampore has proven her family wrong by securing first position in the Commerce stream. After passing matriculation examination, she was asked to choose Medical stream.
“As our family has medical background, we asked her to take medical line but she refused saying that she wanted to become a businesswoman. Finally, we had to relent before her wish,” says Ghulam Nabi, Saba’s uncle.
Saba’s father Tariq Ahmad is a radiologist at district hospital Pulwama while her mother Jabeena also works in medical field. Her grandfather Ali Muhammad Mir is a medico and uncle Nissar Ahmad is a pharmacist.
About the examination preparation, Saba says, “Slowly and steady wins the race. I would study two hours daily after passing 11th class examination. My preparation schedule did not change even during the examination.”
She adds that securing a position will boost her ambition of becoming businessman.
“I want to prove that business is not only male domain and woman can also touch skies in the field,” she said.
When asked about her future plans, Saba said that she does not want to work under anybody and that’s why she would prefer to work independent rather than working for any body else’s organization. “I will go for further studies in the same stream and try to establish my own business so that I can give something back to the society,” she said.
 Taiba Trumboo, student of Saint Joseph Higher Secondary Baramulla has secured second position in Science stream along with eight others. She has fetched 489 marks out of 500.
 Daughter of Noor Muhammad Trumboo and Shahnaz Rashid, Taiba has good academic record from childhood. She fetched 476 marks in her matric examination in 2009. She is the cousin of Valley’s young industrialist, Umer Shafi Trumboo, Director TCI Cements.
