￭ Amruta scores 95 pc in SSC
Against all the odds, Amruta Kahandal with a 'never-say-die' spirit secured outstanding 95.82 per cent in the SSC exam.
Living in a narrow and dingy room of 8x10 along with four family members and poor resources, she braved her way in testing time and proved her mettle in the board exam. Studying at Kalavati Chauhan School from standard first, Amruta was a brilliant student throughout as she always finished among the first three rankers.
Her father an autorickshaw driver and her mother who crushed spices at home on orders, somehow managed to have a square meal for the family. However, she remained unfazed by these factors and instead of relying on tuition, focused on study and secured 95.82 per cent in the 10th board examination. Amruta nourishes a dream of getting admission to MBBS and to achieve it she is ready to burn the midnight oil. Buoyed by her unflinching zeal to pursue study to be an MBBS, her parents are also determined to help their daughter achieve the goal. Shiv Sena's Vaijyanti Khaire, mayor Kala Ozha, and AMC office-bearers visited her home and promised her lifetime scholarship for further studies.
