Despite gap of 5 years, woman defies odds to score 78.2 per cent in HS exam


SILCHAR, JUNE 28: In what could be called a manifestation of love for studies and will to perform, L Priya Singha of Silchar passed this year's Higher Secondary Examination with flying colours, that too appearing after a gap of five years.

Daughter of L. Samarjit Singha and Monimala Singha and a resident of Manipuri basti in Tarapur here, Priya had passed her HSLC examination from Netaji Memorial Institute with first division marks back in 2013.

But she could not continue her studies owing to unavoidable circumstances at home.

However, the will to study backed by motivation from her husband Roshan Singha and in-laws helped her to come out with 78.2 per cent in the Arts stream bagging letters in Alternative English and Logic & Philosophy subjects.

Sharing her joy with The Assam Tribune on Saturday, 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 has been diagnosed with cancer and she is undergoing treatment.

"At one point, I thought I won't be able to continue studies anymore. However, my husband and family, along with parents gave full support and cooperation to my wish to carry forward studies.

"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 at the college are equally a part of her achievement and shared the credit with them for all their motivation care and concern.

Her husband, Roshan Singha, who works at the Goldighi Municipal Mall here expressed great joy at her sucess and admitted that despite obstacles Priya showed keen interest to go ahead with her studies." My father and I wish that if Priya aspires to sit for Civil Services, we shall provide her all possible assistance," said Roshan.
