Manhar Bansal is the Class Xth topper of the ICSE board. Manhar belongs to Muktsar. Son of a doctor couple, he aspires to become an IAS officer. Navreet Kaur, daughter of a corporate official from Jalandhar stood 6th all over India. Navreet, a student of Mayo Girls from Ajmer scored 98.75 per cent marks in Humanities.
Manhar’s father Dr Madan Mohan Bansal is a physician in Muktsar and his mother is an ENT specialist. While the entire Bansal family is full of doctors, his elder brother Daksh is a doctor at Safdarjung hospital, Manhar has already chosen Humanities. At present he is studying at Delhi Public Sschool, RK Puram and has taken up Maths, Economics, Political Science and Legal Studies.
His father Dr Bansal says that recently he represented the North Zone at the All India ICSE schools quiz competition held at Hyderabad. About his studies, Dr Bansal says, “Manhar is not much of a book worm. He is a normal student though very disciplined.”
Busying taking congratulatory calls, Manhar says: “I have two options before me. I will appear for CLAT on the immediate basis. It will open two vistas for me civil services and judiciary.”
Manhar says depending upon the vastness of the topic he would determine the number of hours he would study. During his free hours he writes poems and reads novels. “I like to read Robin Sharma, Paulho Coelho, Preeti Sheonoy, etc.”
Like Manhar, Navreet also says, she likes reading books and intends to take up Psychology. She has a piece of advice for those preparing for Class X board exams. She says that these exams should not be taken as a burden but taken as learning and knowledge.
