Those are the days where studying was the only mantra for us, yes. When I was joined for my high school in 2003, it was really a struggling days for me because I just joined to English medium. Till that date I was in Kannada medium it’s a local language. And English is suddenly become a nightmare and a star to reach it. Studying all the subjects in English has become the toughest thing to digest in those days.
After getting so many suggestions and advises I came to know that studying Is the only way to get rid of the problem. It’s a new school for me and there are some various special things happening at that time. Hopefully its happening now also. According to that, it’s an event where the school principal going to honor the rank student who just got the first rank in the class. And the event happens on every last period of Friday and they will honor the topper on last Friday of the month. And that event name is “Sharada pooje”, where the principal going to reward the topper with some money and gift. By seeing those incidents at that time, there has started some spark in me though I was struggling at that moment to learn English. But that sort event has literally changed and made me to work for me to hit the bull’s eye at any cost. And 8th standard has completed where I just managed to score 80%. And the eager of topping the class has really made me to work hard and study hard to achieve that. And the time rolls even 9th standard also completed with 85%. 😀
And the real battle is now ON when I reached 10th standard where I almost comfortable with subjects as well as the language. And in those days clearing 10th exam is become a milestone. As the time approaches with some blessings of friends, god, I got the 1st rank in the preparatory exam, which was happened before the final; exams. And I managed to score 608/625 and their I rewarded 200rs; yes I really mean it because I earned it. And the lost goal was still left to get my name printed on the board that is situated exactly front of the school and I is still there where anyone can watch it now also. Yes, finally I made it and placed my name on the board by securing 91.52% in the final exam. It’s really been a life time impact for me. And I literally felt the fruit of hard work and dedication. 🙂
