Our Biology Pioneers

The students in year 12 science are our first batch that will sit the final examinations in the subject. In the Rajasthan Education system students who study Science must study Chemistry and Physics and then choose for their third subject either Mathematics or Biology.
These photos are of our biology students. The girl in the middle of the second photo is a most brilliant student who has won several scholarships from the Government due to her results in the last two years.
What amazes me about these students is their focus on their studies. For the whole of 11th and 12th class our science students have been studying day and night. We constantly have to go to the hostel in the evenings and explain to them that there is a long way to go and that they need to keep a balance and get some sleep as well. This is their chance to take a step in life, the students largely being first generation learners, and perhaps because of that they appreciate even more the chance that lies before them.
