Despite gap of 5 years, woman defies odds to score 78.2% in HS

By Staff Correspondent

SILCHAR, June 28 - In what could be called a love for studies, L Priya Singha of Silchar passed the Higher Secondary examination with flying colours, that too appearing after a gap of five years.

Daughter of L Samarjit Singha and Monimala Singha of Manipuri Basti in Tarapur here, Priya had passed her HSLC examination from Netaji Memorial Institute with first division in 2013. But she could not continue her studies due to unavoidable circumstances at home. However, the will to study, backed by motivation from her husband Roshan Singha and in-laws, helped her come out with 78.2 per cent in Arts stream bagging letter marks in Alternative English and Logic & Philosophy.

Sharing her joy with The Assam Tribune, Priya said, �I am happy that I could resume studies once again. After my HSLC, I got married and there were unavoidable situations at home. My mother in-law was diagnosed with cancer and is undergoing treatment. At one point, I thought I won�t be able to continue studies any more. However, my husband and family gave full support and cooperated with my wish to study. In 2018, I took admission at Monmohan Ghosh Anil Das Memorial College at Ramnagar and sat for the exam this year. I wish to complete my graduation and continue my studies from the same college.�

She said her teachers and college management were equally a part of her achievement and shared the credit with them for their motivation and concern.

Her husband, Roshan Singha, who works at the Goldighi Municipal Mall here, expressed joy at her success and said that despite obstacles, Priya showed keen interest to go ahead with her studies.

�If Priya wishes to appear for the civil services examinations, we shall provide her with all possible assistance,� said Roshan.
