The twins’ story is an inspiration to everyone who dreams of a better future. They show that anything is possible if you work hard and never give up on your dreams.
Twin sisters from a remote village in Kashmir defy the odds and clear NEET exam.
Syed Sabiya and Syed Bisma, both 19, grew up in a remote village in south Kashmir. Their father is a religious cleric and their mother is a school teacher. Despite their humble beginnings, the twins had big dreams. Sabiya wanted to become an IAS officer, while Bisma wanted to be a doctor.
The twins knew that they would have to work hard to achieve their dreams. They started studying early and they never gave up. They also faced many challenges. They didn’t have access to the same resources as students in big cities. They also had to travel long distances to get to school.
But the twins never gave up. They worked hard and they never lost sight of their dreams. And finally, their hard work paid off. They both cleared the NEET exam and they will now be able to pursue their dreams of becoming doctors.
The twins’ story is an inspiration to us all. It shows us that anything is possible if we work hard and never give up on our dreams.
Sabiya explains that both sisters prepared for the competitive exams together. “We maintained a regular study schedule of eight hours per day, but it required serious effort,” she shares. “In the days leading up to the exams, we extended our study hours to up to 16 hours a day.”
This year, three candidates, including one boy, from Watoo village, which comprises around 450 families, successfully qualified the NEET exams.
Twenty kilometers away from Watoo, Sumera Mehraj’s father, Mehrajudin Rangrez, finds it difficult to believe that his 21-year-old daughter has cleared the exams.
“Only God knows how challenging it is for a girl from a humble family to qualify for such an exam,” says Mehraj, who works as a driver for the Deputy Commissioner of Kulgam. “I can’t believe that she has actually made it.”
Sumera studied at GNV Ashmuqam for the past six years and narrowly missed selection last year. Mehraj explains that he was encouraged by his superior to send her for coaching this year, which turned her fortune around.
