Srinagar/Baramulla, Jan 23: Amara Wani of Iqbal Memorial (Girls) Higher Secondary School Bemina was thrilled with joy when she came to know that she had bagged first position in class 12th examination. Amara obtained 490 marks out of 500 to share first position with four other students.
“I was expecting to secure distinction, but had never imagined that I will secure first position. The result is beyond my expectation,” said Amara, hailing from Batamaloo area of Srinagar.
Belonging to a middle class family and daughter of Muzaffar-ul-Islam, who works as legal-incharge in Geology and Mining Department and Shamima Akhter, a house maker, Amara credits hard work and support of the parents as mantra of her success.
“Whenever I studied, I did it with full attention and focus “, she said, adding that her parents guided her whenever she was in need of their support in studies.
Amara’s father, Muzaffar is jubilant over the success of her daughter and wants her daughter to top the Common Entrance Test (CET) for admission to professional courses. “I was delighted to hear that my elder daughter has topped the merit list of 12th class. Her triumph is proof that girls are no lesser than boys,” he says.
Success is not new for Sana Shafiq Pandit of Government Girls Higher Secondary School Kothibagh who has topped in Arts stream by securing 489 marks. She had secured 2nd position in her 10th class examination just two years back.
But she did not opt for Science stream after passing matriculation as most of the toppers do. Sanna says she decided to opt for Arts stream to realize her dream of cracking Civil Services examination.
Youngest of the three daughters of Shafiq Ahmad Pandit of Lal Bazaar, a retired Draftsman and Dilshada Bano, employee of Rural Development, Sana didn’t go to any coaching centre.
“Self-study is the mantra for my success. I did it without any coaching or going to tuition centres,” she says.
Shafiq, father of Sanna says that hard work of her daughter and prayers of the family have paid off.
“This is the second time she has passed the Board exam with flying colors. My daughter has made me proud by achieving the feat. I have three daughters and I never felt the need of a son. All of my daughters have achieved everything that a boy could have,” Shafiq says.
Rahila Hafiz, resident of Delina Baramulla, who has obtained first position in Commerce stream, says that she has proven her critics wrong.
“Everybody questioned my decision (opting for commerce stream) after class 10th examination, but today I have proven all of them wrong by securing first position,” she says.
But she adds that her parents stood by her decision of choosing the commerce stream.
“The choice of selecting a subject should be left to the student so that he/she can excel in their career,” she adds.
Rahila, wants to fulfill her dream of becoming Chartered Accountant (CA).
“These days, I am preparing for the forthcoming Common Proficiency Test to become CA and today’s success has instilled more confidence in me and I am hopeful that I will crack the test,” Rahila says.
Hailing from a middle class family of Mohalla Mir Sahab in old town Baramulla, Bismah Zahoor has proved that hard work and dedication towards a goal can always fetch desired results.
“I have firm faith that hard work never goes waste. I worked hard throughout the year and was optimistic that I will top,” she says.
Bismah has secured first position in science stream by securing 490 marks.
Aiming high in life, Bismah said that her aim in life is to become a doctor and feels that she has started to move in that direction.
“I had always dreamt of becoming a doctor. This is not only my dream but of my parents also. I had always dedicated my life to the aspirations of my parents especially my mother,” said Bismah.
Bismah is all praise for her teachers of St Joseph Higher Secondary School Baramulla and gives full credit of her success to the dedicated staff of the school.
