CBSE?Board 12th topper Hansika Shukla stayed away from social media, focused on each subject

Published

Hansika Shukla, who has topped the Class 12 CBSE board exams, says she couldn’t believe it when her mother called her up to congratulate her for having topped the exams in the country.

In an interview to ABP news, Hansika, a student of DPS Ghaziabad, says that she was at home when the results were announced.

“My father called me from his office, but I couldn’t take his call. Then my mother called and congratulated me and told me that I had topped the exams. I couldn’t believe it,” she told ABP news.

While Hansika’s mother is an associate professor at a college in Ghaziabad, her father works as a secretary in the Rajya Sabha.

Hansika, who scored an absolute 100 on 100 in History, Political Science, Psychology and Hindustani vocals, has only one regret: scoring 99 in English.

Hansika said that she had not taken any tuition during her preparation for the board exams and that her score was completely on the basis of her self-study only.

She now wants to pursue Bachelors in Psychology and then go on to join the Indian Foreign Services.

“Psychology is my passion and I want to follow it. As far as career is concerned, I want to join the Indian foreign services as I am fascinated with the dynamics of foreign affairs,” she said.

Hansika’s teacher Abhilasha said that the she was a very hard working child and the results didn’t surprise her. “She has performed meticulously in the internals as well. She is a very disciplined child. We expected her to be topper,” said Hansika’s teacher Abhilasha,.

When asked about her choice of subjects, she said that she believes that History, Political Science and Psychology form the core of classical humanities. As far as music – her fifth subject – is concerned, she says that she always had an interest in music but somehow lost touch in class 4, but she took it up again later.

“I was always interested in History. History and political science always go hand in hand,” she says, adding that she had just wanted to study the subjects and had never thought about exams.

When asked about how active she was on social media, Hansika said that she wasn’t very active on social media and whenever she got bored while studying, she would, instead, prefer to listen to music.

“I listen to classical music and a little bit of Bollywood and English songs to relax at times,” she said.

“I am a sports enthusiast. At times, I would watch sports videos like those of badminton, gymnastics etc. I would also go out for some time to play a little. But I left that in the last two-three months before the exams,” she says.

As far as food is concerned, she says that junk food makes very little of her diet. “I love paneer, almost always wanted some variant of it. My mom would make it for me,” she says.

She says her parents always kept her motivated and focused. “My parents constant support enabled me to achieve this,” she says, adding that they always told her that she had the potential.

“My mom is strict, and always kept me focused. My father isn’t that strict, but he kept me positively motivated and would always tell me to keep up with the notes in the classroom,” she says.

The matter of demanding the right of worship in the Qutub Minar complex is once again in discussion. In fact, the Saket court has reserved its decision on the reconsideration petition filed in the matter. Delhi’s Saket court will pronounce its verdict on December 12.

This reconsideration petition was filed by petitioner Kunwar Mahendra Dhawaj Prasad in Saket Court. In fact, the Saket court had rejected the petitioner Kunwar Mahendra Dhawaj Prasad’s petition in the matter of ownership of Qutub Minar. Kunwar Mahendra Dhawaj Prasad Singh had filed a petition claiming ownership over Qutub Minar.

By filing the first petition, Mahendra Dhawaj Prasad Singh had demanded to make himself a party in this matter. It was said in his petition that the government had taken over the entire property in 1947 without our permission. This petition was rejected by the court.

The last time in September, when the ASI’s lawyer opposed the petition of Kunwar Mahendra Dhawaj Prasad Singh, saying that Sultan Begum had claimed the ownership rights over the Red Fort, we had opposed that petition in the Delhi High Court. Even then the court had accepted that there is no basis for the demand made in the petition. ASI had requested to dismiss the petition of Kunwar Mahendra Dhawaj Prasad Singh.

According to police, a 45-year-old man was arrested on Thursday for allegedly murdering his 35-year-old live-in partner at her rented house in Ganesh Nagar, West Delhi. According to police, the woman’s 16-year-old daughter was asleep in another room at the time of the incident.

According to the police, the victim, Rekha Rani, had lived in Ganesh Nagar with her daughter for more than 15 years, and the partner, Manpreet Singh, had stayed with them for the past 7-8 years.

According to police, Manpreet gave Rekha’s migraine patient daughter some pills and told her to go to sleep on December 1 at around 6 a.m.

“He informed her that her mother had gone to the market when she became suspicious and inquired about her mother. She called her cousin and went to his Paschim Vihar home. They then called the police when they discovered that their house in Ganesh Nagar was locked. Ravindra Singh Yadav, Special CP (Crime Branch), stated, “The victim’s daughter stated in her statement that she suspected that Manpreet had harmed her mother and that Manpreet and her mother had been fighting over money for some time.”

According to the police, the suspect allegedly stabbed Rekha in the neck and face while she resisted and mutilated a finger on her right hand.

Manpreet moved in with Rekha after meeting her in 2015. He claimed that Rekha stopped letting him visit and talk to his family because, over time, she started to feel insecure. A police officer stated, “He purchased a chopper (cleaver knife) recently to murder her and planned to kill her.”

According to the police, the accused is allegedly involved in six cases in Delhi, including kidnapping for a ransom, an attempt to kill, the arms act, and forgery.

According to the police, the suspect drove to his home village of Nabha in Punjab after killing the woman. Police said the car was found through toll barriers and he was caught using technical investigation.
