Sevalaya result!

Remember sevalaya? The 12th (+2) results are out and its happy scene out there, yet again!
Sevalaya's Mahakavi Bharathiyar School has secured 100% pass in the Agricultural stream for fourth year in a row. We also got 100 % result in the Biology stream. 80 students from 3 streams of study viz Computer Science group, Biology group and Agriculture group and 79 of them cleared their exams successfully. The overall pass % is 98.75. The school topper is S. Umamaheswari, who has secured 1097 marks out of 1200. She has got 581 out of 600 in her core subjects. R. Ramachandran came second with a total of 1082 and the third place is secured by S.Surya who has scored 1062 marks.
The students of Sevalaya School are from poor families and most of them are first generation learners. Of the top 3 students, Umamaheswari's parents are daily wages labourers; Ramachandrans father rears cattle for daily wages and Surya lost her father at a very young age. Her mother works for daily wages.
Iam so glad these kids from this school are doing so good. You will have to see it to believe it! First generation kids to first study sincerely then to exceed so well is amazing. Remember how much we were egged on by doting parents, kith, all n sundry and then the tutions, question banks, notes and what not!! Atleast irritating comparisions to some BS or VS “see how come he always gets 100 or 99.8 and u also do so bad!’ that’s prolly for the 95 u got! The ones mentioned above are just the top scorers but in my op all those kids deserve the same adulation. Thats very heartening. Kudos & thanks to Murali and his team there!
Meanwhile be assured that such grassroot projects are India’s hopes. These projects sustain only out of regular and ample contributions from u(s) go here and happy u supported a very honorable cause!
