Darrang : If you are determined and working hard to achieve your goals, then no mountain can stop you from fulfilling your dreams.

Aziz, is a student of Pipirakuchi Anchalik High Madrassa, who secured 553 marks and was superseded by only Selim Ahmed of Goalpara, who secured 561 marks.
At a time when parents are leaving no stone unturned to ensure their wards’ good performance in exams with round the clock tuitions and the load of many heavy books and practice papers, Aziz’s performance proves that raw determination can overcome any obstacle, including financial constraints and poverty, which can be one of the hardest deficits to deal with the expensive world of modern education.
Aziz belongs to Athkuriapara village in Sipajhar in the Darrang district of Assam and he belongs to a financially weak family. In the highly backward village located in one of the remotest villages of Assam, agriculture is the chief source of income. But it is a well-known fact that the farming community is ailing in the country due to many obstacles and the inability to deal with debt has led to mass farmer suicides in many parts of the country.
Aziz belongs to a village where proper education facilities, electricity, roads etc have still not made an entry. Along with the above, medical and health services are next to nil in the village and sick villagers have to travel far in order to seek medical treatment.
