Assam: A 45-year-old woman in Assam’s Vishwanath district has proved the old adage that ‘there is no age to learn’ by clearing her class 10th examination. Recently, the Board of Secondary Education Assam has released the result of class X. In which Bulbuli Khatoon, the mother of three children, has also passed the exam with good marks.
Bulbuli Khatoon left education 22 years ago due to family reasons. But the desire to study remained buried somewhere in my mind. This time she had appeared in the 10th examination from Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed High School, Vishwanath Ghat.
Bulbuli works in Anganwadi
Bulbuli Khatoon is working as an Anganwadi worker for the last 12 years. He says, “Today I am very happy that my dream has come true. I always wanted to clear the matriculation exam but could not due to family reasons. After marriage, I got busy taking care of my family and kids.”
However, Bulbuli had a dream to pass the matriculation exam someday, so she studied whenever she got time. Now his goal is to continue his studies even further. She is planning to take admission in Higher Secondary in Arts stream. She also tells others that she should take time out for studies and never let her age become a hindrance.
