In Congress-ruled Madhya Pradesh, chaiwala’s and chowkidar’s sons top the 10th board exam

The total percentage of students who passed the exam this year remains 61.32% as compared to 51.39% in 2018.

It is a moment of pride for the sons of a chowkidar (watchman) and chaiwallah (tea seller) as the two boys are amongst the toppers of the Madhya Pradesh Board of Secondary Education (MPBSE). MPBSE declared the results of class 10 today.

The total percentage of students who passed the exam this year remains 61.32% as compared to 51.39% in 2018. With 499 marks out of 500, Gagan Dixit and Ayushman Tamrkar secured 99.8% each and were declared the toppers. The second position has been secured by Dipendra Kumar Ahirwar who scored 497 marks out of 500. The third position has been shared by six students.

Dixit’s father is a farmer while Tamrkar’s father is a chowkidar. Tamrkar who hails from a humble background, unlike other students, did not have the luxury of time for his studies. Apart from helping her mother in household chores, he often had to do his father’s job whenever his father was on leave. Not just that, he also used to work at a grocery store to arrange his fees.
