Divyang Bhavani accepts the challenge and takes Board Exam – An inspiration to all

A lesson to learn from Divyang Bhavani

Most students consider Board Examination as a burden. The examination stress turns suicidal at times.

The will power shown by Divyang Bhavani is a lesson for the students. Divyang Bhavani Prasad has no shortage of passion and courage but she has no hands.

divyang bhavani

She is giving Class XII Board Examination now. Her dream is to become the collector of Jabalpur. She is learning Maths & Science group from APN School Sadar. Her mother Rani Yadav is fully confident on the abilities of Bhavani and proud of her and she takes daughter to the examination centre and back.

Bhavani was born without arms. But the parents decided to accept the challenge and trained her in all respects. She was trained to write and do all routine work using her legs instead of arms. Though the parents were not educated much – mother 8th pass and Father 10th pass, they dream of educating Bhavani to the maximum and they want to get her dream fulfilled.

Life is a challenge !

It was a challenge to get the child admitted to school and to educate her, but as things started succeeeding, the path became clearer., there were people who said, “you won’t be able to do this”. Now she operates computer and mobile phone easily with her legs.

Let’s wish her well !

Along with Class XII exam she is also appearing for IIT JEE. Let’s wish that all her dreams come true. Let’s take inspiration from her. We are here with all organs perfect and not utilising them properly to bring out our abilities and achieve maximum. Let’s pledge to work hard and propsper ourselves and helping the country to prosper.

Respond now. Your response counts. It will also help the teachers and Principal to take up the matter to CBSE authorities.

 

Feedback Received

Very Easy but Very Lengthy

“I appeared yesterday for the respective exam. It was quite surprising for us to see the very easy Physics Exam! I myself had prepared hard for it but the exam was much lengthy especially 3 marks questions. I myself couldn’t attempt 10 marks which i had already realized were quite easy questions. But I  have to accept this disappointment now” – Shubham Dhingra

physics std 11 oscillation chap

Displacement equation is given by y(t)=A sin(wt+ ϕ)  but in some books y(t)= A cos(wt+ ϕ) . i know both these function are periodic so they are defining motion .but mine question is how one can define a one type of motion by two different trigonometric terms sine and cosine if you see sine and cosine is having different values for different angles then how one a displacement of pendulum by sine and cosine both …? and in numerical also sometime we are using cosine term and some time sine how we comes to know that this equation we have to use for this sum …Pls answer me
