Kerala Govt ran a special bus for a tribal girl, She scored 95% in 10th boards

    For people living in remote areas, a good education facility is hard to come by. Combine it with the pandemic we are living in, and it becomes nearly impossible for them to reach the city areas for their education. Sixteen-year-old, C Sreedevi, was faced with a similar crisis. The tribal girl who lives in Annamalai Tiger Reservehad to travel 150km to reach her exam center. This is where the Kerala government stepped in and arranged a bus for her. With Shreedevi’s merit and support from her family as well as the state, the tribal girl scored 95% in 10th boards.

    The news is extra special because she is the first from her community to achieve this feat. Given the fact that most students from her community either drop out or are married off, Shreedevi’s achievement speaks for itself.

    Mr. M Chellamuthu, who is a farmer and the father of Shreedevi was worried his daughter won’t be able to make it to the exam center, as she had returned to her settlement after the lockdown was imposed. Thankfully, the Kerala government stepped in and arranged for a bus from her settlement to Chalakudy. Since the pandemic is ongoing, Shreedevi wrote her exam separately and had to quarantine herself once she was back home.

    Apart from the distance and the commute woes, Shreedevi also had to deal with irregular power supply and bad mobile signal. The 16-yo tribal girl scored 95% in her 10th board exam.

    She now plans to go further with her studies, and her father is in full support of his daughter. Hope this story becomes an example, an more parents support their child’s education despite the hardships.
