‘If you have a burning desire to do something then no obstacles can hold you back’ – Hojai’s Neha Das has proved this proverb right.

Neha Das, a student of Bibekananda Junior College in Hojai of Assam, in spite of suffering from chronic  ‘rhumetoid arithrithis’ has cleared the higher secondary examination with third division, the results of which were announced on Saturday by Assam Higher Secondary Education Council.

Neha aims to continue her studies, whatever may be the situation. She is an exemplary inspiration to all the youths.

She is a resident of Bishnupally in Hojai and the elder daughter of Late Dilip Das and Ruma Das. She has a younger sister Rishita Das.

Young Neha Das has secured 44.4 per cent marks. She has obtained 57 each in English and Alternative English in spite of facing difficulty to walk and write properly.

Talking to Northeast Now, Neha Das said, “Till class VIII, everything was fine but after that suddenly things changed.”

She said,” My parents tried to do whatever was possible for them to cure my disease. Even in this financial crisis they somehow managed with my treatment in Bangalore in 2015, and after returning to Assam, my father had a brain stroke and we lost him forever in between this stressful situation.”

“My mother and younger sister are my backbone they always give me inspiration to study,” Neha added.

Neha says she has tried her best but she is not satisfied by her results, now she desires to study taking English subject as honours and her aim is to become a good public resource manager.

She said that as she cannot walk and even cannot write properly, in her daily routine she studies her academic books and as per hobby likes to read novels, loves to hear music but does not have a tevelsion set at home and she use to love to dance but now this not possible.

She have thanked principal of Bibekananda Junior College, Biplop Acharjee, Kumkum Laskar and teachers for providing her free education and helped her to take the examination centre on examination days.

Neha’s mother Ruma Das said that due to financial crisis her treatment has been stopped and now they have moved to ayurvedic treatment.

Talented Neha is a living inspiration for the society but due to financial crisis her further studies and treatment are at stake. Her family is now hoping that someone will come up for their help.
