They say, hard work is the key to success, and 15-year-old Roshani Bhadoriya is a living example. The teenager, a resident of Ajnol village in Bhind district of Chambal region, cycled 24 km every day in order to attend school, and her determination to get an education paid off as she secured 98.5 per cent in the Class X board exams (Madhya Pradesh state board).

With this percentage, she ranked eighth in the state board. Her father Purushottam Bhadoriya, told PTI, that Roshani was earlier enrolled in a different school, and had access to bus facility, but two years ago, she changed schools and didn’t have transport available. “Since Roshani got enrolled in Class 9 of Mehgaons Government Girls' School two years back, she had to cycle to reach school on several days due to unavailability of other modes of transport like taxis,” he told the news portal.
“It was difficult to go to school on a bicycle. Though I didn’t count, I cycled for about 60 to 70 days a year to reach the school. My father also took me to school on his motorcycle whenever he had time,” she said.
In the future, she plans to prepare for IAS.
