SILCHAR, May 31 - At a time when the seemingly dismal performance in this year�s High School Leaving Certificate (HSLC) examination has disappointed everyone, Bikram Sutradhar, a student of Public Higher Secondary School in Silchar, has given his poor parents and the people of Barak Valley a huge reason to rejoice with his commendable performance amid difficult times.
Son of Subhash Sutradhar, a carpenter, and Maya Sutradhar � resident of Kanakpur Part II � Bikram secured 548 marks with 91.6 per cent and Letter marks in all the subjects. �My father is a carpenter and work hard to live a sustainable life. I have been given everything I needed for my studies. I want to become a doctor and shall pursue my career with Science,� Bikram said.
Interestingly, even as he admitted his lack of interest in politics, he wasted no time to thank Education Minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma for introducing �free admission processes� in the educational institutes. �I have no wish to follow politics and don�t want to involve in any discussion on this. But I want to thank our Education Minister for coming up with the free admission scheme which will help many like me to receive education and become better citizens of the country. I believe things have improved in the education scenario since Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister,� Bikram added.
He said that he loves reading newspapers and his father encourages him to keep a track of the current affairs. Bikram used to accompany his father as a helping hand and amassed money for his studies.
