There is no age limit for learning. If you have the willingness and the correct attitude to learn something, age becomes just a number.”
The above adage was proven right when 43 years old Manjinder Kaur ,an ancillary member of The Milestone Smart School cleared Class XII Punjab School Education Board(PSEB) exam along with her daughter Ishpreet Kaur.
Manjinder Kaur scored 72% in Arts Stream while her daughter got 94% marks in Non Medical .
Breaking barriers-mother-daughter duo passed 12th class together with flying colours. Manjinder kaur (Mother) did her 10+2 through Punjab School Education Board open school and her daughter Ishpreet Kaur did her 10+2 from Govt Civil Lines School, Patiala.
Manjinder was married at a young age and soon lost her husband .She brought up her daughter and son single handed. She did her matriculation in 1997.
When asked Manjinder Kaur, what inspired her to do 10+2 after a gap of 26 years as she had done her matriculation in 1997, she said “ when last year the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) formed its government in Punjab, I contacted the local party office at Tripuri for a govt job. At that time I was 41 years of age. They said, there is no govt job for 10th pass out. Do 10+2 than we will consider it. They even suggested me to do my senior secondary through open schooling and helped me in filling my form. They also guided me about the age relaxation for SC’s and widows. That motivated me to do my senior secondary.”
Despite the challenges thrown by the world she has a long way to go. She plans of getting her daughter admitted in a good engineering college.
The Management and the Principal of Milestone School, Patiala sent a congratulatory note to the mother and daughter duo. Manveen Aujla , the Principal of the school said that such lives are a source of inspiration and motivation for others
