New Delhi.Surmounting all odds be it financial or cultural,a local vegetable vendor’s daughter Nagma Mansuri achieved a rare feat in her educational career when she topped the Chaudhary Charan Singh University to win a Gold Medal for scoring maximum marks in Physics subject.

Nagma’s elder sister Tabassum Mansuri  had topped the Meerut University back in 2014 and her brother is studying Computer Science.

Back in 2013 Shamli had  witnessed worst kind of communal riots , following which hundreds of families had migrated to settle in other towns and cities or in relief camps. The town has a very poor female literacy rate.

The feat achieved by Mansuri sisters have made a role model for other girls in the locality.However the small number of girls who were in schools was forced to drop out due to the riots.

“Initially, people were criticizing us for sending our daughters to college. But, after the laurel they brought to the town by their astonishing success, they have become a role model for others.

“There are many girls in the town who want to become like them and come to our house for guidance”, Farzana Mansuri, their mother, she was qouted by Hindi.
