Harvest worker Mamum Hossain, son of harvester worker Nasir Uddin of Porjana UP’s Charkadai village under Shahjadpur Upazila of Sirajganj, has got Golden GPA-5 from the science group in the SSC examination this year.
He obtained 1143 numbers in total. He also received scholarships in Talent Pool in PSC and JSC. Even though this talented boy has done bright results in exams, it is uncertain whether he will be admitted to any good college due to the financial crisis.
His father Nasir Uddin said Mamun is the second of his four children. They have nothing but a three-decimal of land and a dilapidated tin house on it. His son Mamun was a regular student of Beltail High School. He used to walk three kilometers every day to attend school. He could not afford coaching or private tuition expense. Mamun has achieved this success by attending regular classes, home-based reading, and with the help of school teachers.
Besides, Mamun used to work with his father as a paddy harvester on school holidays. With this money, he runs his family and his education expenses. He also went to Tangail as a harvest worker with his father on the day the test results were released. From there he can know the news of his result. He wants to become a doctor in the future and serve the poor and needy people of the area. But financially, it is uncertain whether he can be admitted in class XI now.
On the other hand, Sanjida Akhter Sampa, daughter of late Mosharraf Bepari, who was a carpenter from Purbacharkaizuri village in Kaizuri UP of the same Upazila, got GPA-5 from the science group in the SSC examination this year by working as rice maker with her mother in the village. She obtained 1083 numbers in total. She also got GPA-5 in JSC.
Even though the meritorious student has done so well in exams, it is uncertain whether she will be admitted to a good college due to the financial crisis.
Her mother Mrs. Sahida Begum said Sampa is her only daughter. They have nothing but a four-decimals land and a dilapidated tin house on it. After the untimely death of her carpenter husband, the mother and daughter have been making their living by boiling and drying rice in other people's houses. On the school holidays, Sampa works with her mother. Besides she works as a house-tutor for the students of 1st to 4th class. Sampa wants to become a doctor in the future and serve the poor and needy people of the area. But financially, it is uncertain whether she can be admitted to class XI now.
The parents of both of them have sought financial help from the kind-hearted rich people of the country to continue their education.
