Jasnoor Kaur, The Hush Post: In an inspiring story, a 44-year-old woman has cleared the Class 10 examination of the Punjab School Education Board (PSEB) along with her son. The result of PSEB Class 10 was declared on Wednesday. The woman works as a ward attendant in the Civil Hospital, Ludhiana. She had appeared in the Class 10 Board exam with her son.

The woman, Rajni Bala, resumed her studies after a long gap of 15 years. There was a time of double celebration in Rajni Bala’s house as she and her son scored 54 and 58 per cent respectively in Punjab School Education Board (PSEB) when the result was declared.

“I discontinued my studies due to a family problem when I was unmarried and stayed with parents in Tarn Taran. After my marriage and a gap of more than 15 years, I appeared again and cleared the examination,” Rajni Bala reportedly said.

She further added, “It was only due to the persistent efforts of my husband that I have got through this examination. Behind every successful man, there is a woman. It’s quite opposite in my case.”

She admitted herself in St Patrick School, Haibowal and took leave for one month from her job at the Civil Hospital. St Patrick School in Ludhiana offers open classes to help men and women reach their maximum potential.

“My elder daughters, husband and my classmate (son) sat together to study and prepare for the exams. This is the result of our collective effort of over one month,” said Rajni Bala.

Not only Rajni, her husband Raj Kumar Sathi after a gap of 18 years showed up for Class 12 examination in 2004.
