Faces of India – 71


She is Archana Sasi. A 17 year old, she has created history by securing top rank in five medical college entrance exams (AIIMS, CET (medical), COMED (medical), JIPMER, Medical College, Manipal). She cracked the IIT entrance exam which is the most difficult entrance exam for engineering courses. Add to that she scored centum in Mathematics in her 12th grade exams. Incredible performance! At a prize distribution ceremony she willingly posed for me. She is training to be a doctor India will be proud of!

Faces of India, a series through which I intend to portray the various characters of my country. See more here.

    She is a gifted girl.

    There is something we all must remember when we talk about intelligence and achievements.It is no one's merit that a child becomes intelligent.There are also chances that another child in the same family could be less intelligent or even a mongol. It is there in her brains and she is blessed to have it.

    Wel ! I am a bit confused to either admire the face in the photo or the brain behind the face or the brilliance of the photographer, all three of course. Congrats!
