Beating all odds, a visually impaired girl, Shrishti Tiwari, from Damoh town has topped the Madhya Pradesh Higher Secondary examination in Arts stream.
The results were declared two days back by the Madhya Pradesh Board of Secondary Education. For Shrishti, a student of JBP Government Higher Secondary School in Damoh, the achievement is special not only academically but also because of the fact that she is visually impaired since birth. She scored 481 out of 500 marks to emerge as the topper in Arts stream.
Shrishti's grandparents and uncle helped her a lot in mastering the subjects, her family said. While her parents stay in Bhopal because of job compulsions, Shrishti's maternal uncle Sanjay Gangele prepared notes for her. Her maternal grandparents Virendra and Pushpa Gangele read out the notes to her, they said. In High School examination also, Srishti had secured a place for herself in the merit list in 2011, they said.
