Poovar: The A Plus secured by twin sisters Sneha David and Sangeetha David in all subjects in the class 10 SSLC examination is not only twice as sweet but also an inspiration for everyone fighting against severe odds.
Their mother Sheena of Sheena’s House at Varavilathoppu had been bedridden after her spine was fractured in a road accident. Much uncertainty had prevailed over the children’s education then.
However, Sheena passed on her courage and determination to her daughters. The twins studied hard and never wavered, finally scoring full A Plus in the class 10 final exam. The students of Angels’ Convent, Poovar also had the encouragement, support and love showered by the teachers, who included nuns, and their schoolmates.
Sheena is a teacher at Govt Upper Primary School, Pozhiyoor. Four years ago, while travelling in an auto-rickshaw along with some of her colleagues, she met with an accident. While another teacher died in the mishap, Sheena was bedridden after suffering fractures on her spine and ribs.
But a determined Sheena soon returned to her school to teach on a wheelchair. Sneha and Sangeetha overcame such obstacles to register their excellent performance in the Class 10 exam. They also made all the residents of the fishermen’s village proud.
