Toppers During Tough Times


Toppers During Tough Times

The board examination results (Classes 10 and 12) are being declared across the country. It has been nail biting for high school students in India who had some examinations pending when the first national wide lockdown was announced on 24 March.

Amidst the pandemic gloom, there is a silver lining. When the lockdown was announced, some 250 students continued to stay across our Chatralayams. Many of them were yet to complete their board examinations while others whose homes were far could not go back in the absence of proper transportation facilities.

Our students’ hard work and perseverance has paid off. In this section, we share some short profiles of some such achievers from across India.

Madhya Pradesh

Ajay Mourya, a Class 10 student from the Smt. Jamunabai Chanchlani AIM for Seva Chatralayam for Boys, Hoshangabad, Madhya Pradesh, scored 98% in the board examinations. He is a school topper and was ranked second at the district level in Hoshangabad.

Similarly, Anjali Gurjar, a Class 10 student from the Inder and Prabha Sharma Higher Secondary School, Khategaon,  Madhya Pradesh, scored 98.5%. She was the school topper and secured the 10th position in the Madhya Pradesh merit list.

School principal Sunaina Sharma says that the institution will offer all possible support to Anjali for her bright future. Anjali hails from Bhedi village.


Vijayakumar G Biradar, a Class 12 student from the Jaya Smrithi Dhama AIM for Seva Chatralayam for Boys, Udupi, Karnataka, scored 92% and was the topper in the science stream in his school.

Vijayakumar joined the Udupi Chatralayam seven years back when he was in  Class 6. He is now preparing for the CET (common entrance test). “AIM for Seva has given me a good foundation and I was constantly encouragement to study. I will keep in touch with this institution throughout my life,” says Vijayakumar.
