Still another navodaya girl!

Posted by Rewa Smriti on March 14, 2010

A unique road to success of a Navodaya girl!

Yes!…another Nayodayan again, and this time her name is Anita. She has completed her schooling from Navodaya Vdiyalaya  Hoshangabad, Madhya Pradesh. Read the article below to know the unique road to her success!

Anita Tilwari is in Malaysia, researching on medicinal plants for curing cancer.

She won a government of India fellowship for research at the Institute for Research in Molecular Medicine, University Sains Malaysia, Kelantan, North Malaysia. She also heads a Malaysian delegation to promote awareness about science.

Anita grew up watching her parents till the field and do menial jobs in Alampur, Harda district in Madhya Pradesh. (Her parents still work as labourers in Bhopal.)

Anita’s elder sister did not go to school and the younger one gave up studies after class VII. Both were pushed into early marriage. Anita, however, is unmarried.

She did her graduation and post-graduation in biotechnology and microbiology at Barkatullah University, Bhopal, and later got a doctorate in the same field from the Rajiv Gandhi Proudyogiki Vishwavidyalaya (University of Technology of Madhya Pradesh, Bhopal).

She got the Young Scientist Award in 2005 (from the state government) for innovation in the field of science.

“She was good in studies and one of her teachers in the village spotted her potential and sent her to a Navodaya Vidyalaya. This was the turning point in her life,” said her mother, Shanta Bai .

Anita has been able to shape the careers of her two younger brothers. One of her brother Valmiki said: “all this would not have been possible without the untiring efforts of my elder sister.” To know more, visit the link : From farms of MP to cancer lab — a scholar’s journey

While each person’s path is unique, it is up to us to be willing to live the life taking courageous advantage of every opportunity. For Anita didi, this has not been an instant success, her success story had a difficult start. She is doing what she believed strongly she should do!

    The increasing frequency of this kind of news I hear makes me proud of being a Navodayan. Needless to say, some of the Navodayan crop was indeed wasted (e.g. myself :)) but it made many lives and many more in progress.

    Long live Navodayans!
