Daughter of a poor shoe-seller, Madhu Arya of Sheopur in Madhya Pradesh has overcome her adversities to find a place in the merit list for the MP Board Class 12 Result 2020.
In terms of her rank, she is at the third place in the stream’s merit list for Class 12 MPBSE Toppers list. She has scored 485 out of 500 marks in Science stream.
The 17-year-old Madhu’s father sells shoes on the footpath near the local bust stand to take care of a family of eight. The limited resources are often enough to take away the sleep of many and in tow the dreams.
She is the second of 5 sisters and a brother and the family of 8 stays in a two-room house. There were times when Madhu too despaired that poverty would force her to abandon her dreams of one day becoming a doctor.
Her house comprises of a single concrete room and a tin-shed. With as many as 8 people in the room, she would get up at 4 am each day. The lockdown did not deter her and she continued to make the most of the time by focusing on her studies.
“If the government extends help, I can realise my dream of becoming a doctor. I want to make my parents proud. I have been preparing for medical entrance exams,” she said.
बेटी मधु, बहुत – बहुत बधाई, शुभकामनाएं!
