Adhisha Debsharma has made the entire Vidya Bharati family proud by securing the 1st rank in the State in West Bengal Board of Higher Secondary Examination. An alumnus of Madan Mohan Para Sarada Shishu Tirtha, Dinhata, Adhisha is now the centre of celebration in the entire state.
“Although I knew that I would rank in top 10, but I did not expect to rank first. When the results were declared I was in the temple. My father came and told me that I have stood first in the state. My immediate reaction was bowing to the Divine”, said a jubilant young Adhisha.
Studying Pure Science in Higher Secondary with Physics, Chemistry Mathematics, and Biology as main subjects and English and Bengali as compulsory, Adhisha has obtained 498 marks out of 500 in the board examination. She has scored a 100 upon 100 marks in 4 subjects including English, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics.
Recalling her days in Vidya Bharati School, Adhisha mentions, “The good results that I have done today or the sense of principle that I have developed, I got from my school. I used to study in Madan Mohan Para Sarada Shishu Tirtha, Dinhata School from a very young age. I didn't understand much then. Today I got the result of the awakening of sense of principle in me through various stories shared by my teachers during my school days at Vidya Bharati”.
While all her friends joined coaching for JEE or NEET from class 11, Adhisha’s parents guided her to focus on what she was studying then. So she put all her time in preparing for Higher Secondary Examination.
“Studying or preparing for examination is all in the mind. How long one needs to study depends on one’s self confidence. It is very important to believe in yourself. If a subject is studied with concentration of the mind, then it can be absorbed in a short time”, Adhisha shared, who being a classical dancer, in her spare time, practiced dance and sometimes also recited a poem or simply created an artwork.
Adhisha hails from a humble family where her mother is Nurse (1st ANM) and her father is a primary school teacher. She had always felt for the needy children. Whenever she saw a child being dropped out of school because of lack of money, she wanted to help. In spite of acing the top rank, Adhisha’s first goal is to help children in need.
“Children who are not able to move forward due to financial reasons, I want to bring them in front of everyone with the money I earn in my right path”, she said, who wants to come to Kolkata for further studies.
