It is with great pride that I share with you all one of my blessed moments in my life. My daughter scores 90% comfortably in her CBSE class 12 exams in science stream. The pride is not in the fact that she scored 90% but she scored it without any help from external private tuitions and participating in all the co-curricular activities like NCC, camping etc.
She also simultaneously prepared for an All india entrance exam which almost coincided with her pre-board exams and NCC exams. She was tested for her creative, analytical, logical, mathematical, situational abilities and GK. In this triple round entrance exam, she secured an all India merit rank of 369 and is now awaiting counseling for one of the premier design institute of India where only 30% admission is on merit. The rest are all lateral entry admission like management, NRI and other caste quota. I am praying hard that she gets her choice of location and branch of study.
I am enjoying my time off routine, by connecting socially in the real world and meeting interesting people, had a great family time in my home town re-connecting with my long lost cousins who have relocated to India, touching some river bank villages on a day's road trip, reading physical books (among those I read I loved Sudha murty’s "House of cards") . And now another vacation is in the offing. Will share and record my vacation stories once I resume regular blogging.
