Aneeka Shabir and Shareera Shameem, from a south Kashmir village, have made their homeland proud by securing first and second positions respectively in the 10th board examinations. The girls belong to Dadsar village of Tral area in South Kashmir, which is known to be a hotbed for militant activities.
Aneeka Shabir, who secured the first position, told Daily Excelsior, “My aim is to become a Professor. I am thankful to God, my parents and my teachers for this achievement.”
“Two to three hours serious daily study is enough to achieve good results. I started preparing for examination right from the beginning of the session and students should not wait for the examinations to start the preparations,” she added.
Aneeka’s father, Shabir Ahmad Rather, elated by his daughter’s performance told, “I want her to study with the same zeal, progress and achieve more.”On the other hand, Shareera Shameem wants to study medicine to become a doctor.“I am thankful to God who blessed me with success and parents and teachers. It was not possible without their contribution,” she told the newspaper.

Both the girls are the students of a little known Hajahad Public School. It is the first time that the school has bagged the top positions.

The Principal of the school, Imtiyaz Ahmad, also praised the duo for their outstanding performances in the exams.

“It is a dream come true for us. I had full confidence that these two girls will achieve top positions. The way they performed in the class tests, we expected them to get 500 marks out of 500,″ he told the newspaper.

This year, around 50,535 students appeared for the examination out of which 26,900 were boys and 23,600 were girls. In the results declared by the Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education (JKBOSE), the top three spots have been bagged by girls.

Srinagar, October 27, 2017 : Authorities imposed restrictions in various areas on Friday to prevent separatist-called protests to mark the Accession Day of Jammu and Kashmir to India.

Joint resistance leadership (JRL) of separatist leaders — Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umer Farooq and Yasin Malik — have asked people to observe October 27 as a “black day” in Kashmir.

It was on this day in 1947 that the Indian Army landed in Srinagar Airport following the accession of the state.

“Restrictions under section 144 of CrPC will remain in force in Nowhatta, M.R.Gunj, Safa Kadal, Rainawari, Khanyar, Kralkhud and Maisuma,” a police officer said.

Heavy contingents of the state police and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) in full riot gear were seen disallowing pedestrian and vehicular movement in these areas.

Railway services in the valley have also been suspended on Friday as a precautionary measure. (IANS)
