A scholar of University of Chicago, USA, on a visit to Govt.
Middle School Chuck Murar, Tehsil Bishnah in Jammu and Kashmir of Indian side, last
summer addressed class 8th students to make them aware about huge opportunities
waiting for those who excel in studies. During the interaction he identified 5
students – 2 boys and three girls, who were sharp, full of zeal and potential
for excellence despite local area limitations. Pumping up strong words of
motivations to all students, he had a special word with Tilak Raj, School Headmaster
for arranging special coaching for selected five students.
He went back to US in pursuit of his Ph.D. for which
university, among world top ten, has taken to fund his research studies. From
there he is monitoring performance of students. He has created history of sorts
by mailing individual letters from America to students including Preeti Devi
D/O Uttam Chand, Rocky Sharma S/O Kewal Krishan Sharma, Ritu Sharma D/O Ram
Paul, Sanjay Kumar S/O Tilak Raj, Kiran Bala D/O Sat Paul, promising them
individual rewards along with certificate, in coming June, in case they strike
the targeted performance.
