Once upon a time there was a village Rampur. In that village lived a girl named Mallika.Her parents were very poor, so she didn’t go to school. Her friends teased her but she was having a strong desire of studying. She was very intelligent, she wanted to know about the histry of the country.
One day in that village two women came and told everybody that who is not able to go to school can join there tution classes which starts form 10 am and closes at 3 pm. By hearing this an idea came to mallika. She said to her mother about this. her mother said”ok,you can go to tution classes but what is the tution fee? ”
Mallika became upset and went to her room. At night she saw a dream that she was going to school and giving her first exam. Next day when she woke up she told everything to her mother and also told that she wants too become a successful person in her life, she wants to do something for her family, for her village.
Her mother told her with a smile” Mallika your father does everything that he can do, he also wants that you should go to school and I am sure that day will come when you will be the most intelligent girl of your school. ”
Mallika asked her mother with an innocent face” when will that day come?” and started crying, tears were rolling down from her eyes. Next morning the same women came to her house and asked after seeing mallika that whether she will join there classes or not?
Her mother asked” what is the fee?”
The lady said ” oh! there is no fee for it. We are doing for encouraging the small kids like Mallika to join school. There are many girls like her who are not able to go to school due to poverty. ”
By hearing this Mallika and her mother became extremely happy and from the next day she started going to school and started knowing many new things. After a week Mallika’s father was informed that he has to leave the village and go to delhi as he was promoted and was now cook instead of waiter.
He was happy and in a few days they left the village and went to Delhi. For them Delhi was a big city. He has to wander here and there for house as rent. At last they got a house but it was very dirty. Her mother cleaned the house and settled everything properly.
Next day it was his first day as a cook. After working for long hours in the restaurant he went for searching school for mallika. His salary was increased and now he can live a better life and could afford the fees of at least government school. After lots of difficulties Mallika was admissioned in a govt. school.
The principal was very nice and she agreed to admit mallika but she said that she has to pass a test for admission. Mallika ‘s father agreed and next day he went with Mallika for the test. when Mallika saw the paper she was very happy as she knew most of the questions and was able to solve them due to the tution classes. When Mrs. kavita , the principal herself checked her paper then she was surprised by her performance as each answer was correct. Mrs kavita told her father that she is very intelligent girl and can come to school from tommorow.
Next day she went to school and sat in class III A. Her class teacher Mrs. Neeru was very kind. Mallika sat with Roshni , she was also belonging from a poor family and soon they became friends. Roshni told her everything about the school as Mallika was there for the first time. Mrs Neeru told her to study hard, she can come 1st in the class.
Very soon the schedule of the exams was announced and mallika studied and studied and studied. When the exams started Mallika did the exam nicely and completed it on time. When Mrs. Neeru checked her paper she was really very proud of mallika as she adopted her sayings truly. Mallika was tensed about the results , it was informed that results will be announce on 15 th march . Mallika came to home and was sad. her mother asked her what happened?
She just replied in a low voice that she has to go to school for the result on 15 th. At night Mallika was thinking that who will be topper of her class? Next morning they went to school together. Mrs Kavita was announcing the results …..and she said in class III …..this time Mallika is the topper of the class!
Mallika was surprised and became very happy. Her mother said to her that see that day has come when you are the topper of your class. Mrs. Neru and the principal also told her that really she has proved that she can be a topper…
