There’s no limit to gaining knowledge. More so, if your family stands by you there’s nothing that you cannot pursue and achieve. An impeccable example of this has been making news recently. Rajni Bala, 44, b ased in Ludhiana, is appearing for her class X board examination along with her son, reported TOI.

Rajni completed class IX in 1989 but had to discontinue her studies due to family problems. Now 44 years old, she is appearing for the Class X board exams. Her son is also in the same class and appearing for the same exam.

Rajni works as a ward attendant in a hospital and has taken a month-long break for the exam.

Starting school at this age wasn’t easy but she is a happy woman now. “I am working as a ward attendant in Civil Hospital and felt that I needed to complete my class 10. Initially, I felt odd going to school again but l am happy now,” she said.

Family rooting for education all the way

Rajni gives credit to her husband for motivating her to follow her dream.

“My husband motivated me to study. He believed in me, and he feels that I can become a source of inspiration for those who want to continue their education after having taken a long gap.”

She also said that her husband wakes up early to teach her and their son. Also, her daughters help her along the way.  

Raj Kumar Sethi, her husband who stood like a rock by her, said, “I have been asking her to complete her class 10 from many years. I have been telling her that age is no bar for education,” Sathi said.

Rajni, now that she is studying again, wants to complete her graduation. 

More power to Rajni and her family!
