Punjab Farmer’s Daughter Tops In State In CBSE Class X Exams
It is one of those stories that melt your heart with joy. Taranpreet Kaur, daughter of a Barnala farmer, topped in the CBSE class 10 exams from Punjab, scoring 497 out of 500 (99.4%). The CBSE class 10 board exam results were announced on May 30. She is a student of the Broadway Public School in Barnala district.
“It is unbelievable for me. Though I was sure of getting 95 plus, more than 99% is a dream come true for me,” she told the Indian Express
Taranpreet’s father, Tarlochan Singh, is a farmer who owns 16 acres of land. Her mother is a housewife. “My paternal uncle, who shifted to Canada about six months back, used to motivate me often. Apart from this, my teachers used to guide me wherever I needed them. I did self-study as it is not easy to get a tuition teacher in a village. Also, I never felt the need for the same,” Taranpreet said.
Tarlochan Singh couldn’t study further than class 9 himself, so he was determined to provide fill the gaps and give the best education to his daughter. What’s more inspiring is that Taranpreet’s hardwork paid off and she scored big without any tuitions. Her village was cut off from the city and she did all the hard work on her own.
She is going with the subjects like maths, political science, and economics as a combination and aims to crack the UPSC in the future. She wants to be an IAS officer
Way to go, girl!
