Tapas Sen

Tapas Sen, scored 92% marks in madhyamik examinations and stood first in Bankura district. We talked to Mr. Subal Das, the principal of Bankura Christian Collegiate school, who tells us about the adversity, which young Tapas has endured and prevailed. Tapas's father is mentally ill. Unable to bear the educational expenses, his mother, the sole earning member of the family, was forced to send Tapas to his uncle's place. Tapas has seen his father suffer for the need of good medical care, which the family obviously could not afford. He aspired to become a doctor and help the needy. Tapas worked very hard for his medical joint entrance exams. Although, Tapas could not become a doctor this time, his studies did not stop as Padakshep constantly supported him. Tapas has successfully passed higher secondary examinations and now he is studying at Bankura Christian College with physics as his major subject.
