Neha performed exemplary well in inter exams is due to her teachers and educational facility school provided to her. Regular classes, extra classes when required, giving enough time to students by a teacher so that they can come out with their queries, all these efforts of teachers brought out such an awesome result. Neha told that her School Principal Sanjay sir always supported and encouraged her. He was very sure that she will pass the exams with great marks. Her school have a smart class facility, it helped her in visually understanding difficult concepts.

Neha’s brother Kishan also studied in the same class of the same school and he also managed to get his name in the merit list. Her brother topped district in matric earlier, this motivated her to study harder to become like her brother. Both siblings together cracked the exam and made the family proud.

This will encourage others in village towards the education of their children and specially girls. Neha believes that her achievement can motivate other girls towards education. She also believes that parents should support their girls equally as boys. She also finds herself fortunate to have a school near her home, because earlier when there was no school in village, girls were not allowed to travel so long for studies hence remain deprived from education. “There are many talented girls in Indian villages, but due to lack of family support and distance from school depriving them from education”, Neha believes. She wish that her achievement could encourage other parents towards enhancing and supporting the talent of their girl child.
Neha’s performance is an example and proves that government school teachers provide full support and guidance to their students towards their studies.
