Meghashree Borah


LAKHIMPUR: Achieving a historic success, a Lakhimpur student hit the topmost rank in the toppers’ list of the High School Leaving Certificate (HSLC) examination as per result declared on Wednesday. This brilliant student is Meghasree Borah of Narayanpur, the birth place Mahapurush Madhavadeva, the luminous icon of spirituality of the State after Srimanta Sankardeva. In addition to her, three other meritorious students of North Lakhimpur are from St Mary’s High School. They are Tushif Tamanna Rahman, Aloy Buragohain and Deepjyoti Sharmah. Tushif has secured the fifth rank while Aloy and Deepjyoti have jointly achieved the seventh rank in the State in the HSLC examination.

Meghashree Borah hit the record appearing the exam, conducted by Secondary Education Board of Assam (SEBA), from Narayanpur Sankardeva Shishu Bidya Niketan along with 36 other students of the School. She is the daughter of late Gakul Chandra Borah, who was an Indian Army personnel, and Bonti Saikia Borah, a subject teacher in Naoboicha Junior College, permanent residents of Ward No. 1 of Narayanpur town. As per result, Meghashree Borah made the outstanding result securing 97 in Assamese, 97 in English, 100 in General Mathematics, 100 in General Science, 100 in Social Science and 100 in Advance mathematics. The grand total of her marks is 594 with 99 percentage.

Meghashree dedicated the credit of her epoch-making result for the district to her late father and mother, elder sister Jayashree along with the Pradhan Acharya and the other Acharyas of her school. She had no hard and fast time table and routine for her study. She prepared for the exam studying whenever she got time. Her hobby is reading book, drawing and singing. Renowned literary figures of the State, Anuradha Sarma Pujari and Mani Kuntala Bhattacharya are her favourite writers while her favourite book is Naharar Niribili Chan, the widely-read novel by Anuradha Sarmah Pujari. She has at present planned to study in the Darrang College in Science Stream in a view to be a doctor to render service to the humanity.

According to Meghashree, hard work, patience and perseverance are the keys to success. She said that the medium was not a bar to attain success in the exam. “Attaining expected success is not an impossible thing. If one goes ahead with hard work, patience and perseverance, one can achieve success”, said Meghashree, giving a message to her juniors and upcoming students. However, she admitted that she had not any expectation of bagging the topmost rank, but she thought she had to make the result good.

Meghashree was not only brilliant but also socially conscious. She remarked in front of the media that the Bandh culture had affected the State, not only in the academic environment but as a whole. “On the other hand, the demonstration of burning tyres taken for road blockade during the protest programme or bandh calls has harmed the natural environment of our State. It is time, we should be aware of it”, she stated.


JORHAT: Thrilled to secure the second rank in the HSLC examination, Chinmoy Hazarika of Don Bosco Higher Secondary School, Baghchung, Jorhat, said, “I never expected to secure the second position in the State.”

His grand total is 593 out of 600 with 98.8%. He scored cent per cent marks each in General Mathematics, General Science, and Social Science; 98 each in Advance Maths and Assamese; and 97 marks in English.

Chinmoy is the son of Rupak Hazarika and Ruli Hazarika of Nauholia Gaon, Jorhat. He wants to a doctor in future and will study in the Science Stream at Jorhat Pragya Academy.
