Students from Militant’s nest Tral continue to bring laurels to the region. Another 19 year old boy from Tral has secured eighth rank in the Common Entrance Rest and has also qualified the AIIMs entrance test.
The Board of Professional Entrance Examinations recently declared the results of the Common Entrance Test (CET), in which more than 28000 students had appeared in May. The boy, Shahid Nabi is a resident of Baragam village of Tral and has secured the eighth rank in the CET exam. Shahid however, said that he would not be joining any college in the state. “I am feeling happy that I am among the toppers. I have already been selected in AIIMS so I would not be joining any of the colleges in the state,” he said. He told that nobody in his family is educated. “My father is a farmer and my mother is a home maker. The financial conditions are not good,” he told. But none of this ever stopped him from achieving his goals. His elder brother too is pursuing medicine at Government Medical College in Srinagar.
He told that there was no school in his village and it was a struggle for him to go to another village for pursuing his higher secondary education. He told that every day it would take him more than 30 minutes to reach the nearby school in Noorpora.
Students from militancy- hit areas like Sopore and Tral are coming forward, setting a new trend. Recently, two girld from Tral secured top positions in Class X. A girl from Sopore also bagged the first position in the science stream in Class XII result declared by BOSE recently. Students from these areas have started breaking the stereotype of violence.
Shahid believed that hard and dedication makes everything achievable. Crediting his parents for his success, he said “I am not too excited by my success, I have to work harder and bring more fame to my place.”
