Shila Rani Das, 53, who passed the Tripura Board of Secondary Education (TBSE) exams on Wednesday alongside her two daughters, proved that age is not a bar to education.
Shila took the Madhyamik (Class 10) board exam this year, and her two daughters took the Higher Secondary Exam (Class 12). The recently released the results, brought about a triple thrill.
At a young age, Shila Das got married, and soon after, her spouse passed away, which ended her aspirations to further her education. She was alone responsible for raising her two daughters.
After some time had passed, both girls demanded that their mother take the board exam. Shila then prepared for the exam with the help of her daughters.
Shila stated in a statement to ANI, “I am happy that I’ve passed the exam. My daughters and other people supported me and inspired me to do it. I was confident that I will clear the exam.” She studied from Agartala’s Abhoynagar Smriti Vidyalaya.
Jayashree, Shila’s daughter, completed her HS exam from Agartala’s Bani Vidyapeeth Vidyalaya. She stated: “We are happy as our mother passed Class 10 exam and my sister and I cleared our Class 12 exam. We motivated her and also helped in her studies.”
