Her proud father, Purushottam Bhadouriya, 36, said, “All my children are good students, but this girl has made everyone proud. No one in these parts has ever scored such high marks. Of course, I want her to continue studying. I want to see her get big degrees and work in big firms in big cities.”

Sometimes, it would be days before I could get back home,” she told ANI.
I was given a bicycle by the government which I used well. I used to study around four and half hours everyday.
