A class X Board student gave birth to a baby while writing a paper at the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya examination center in this district headquarter town of Sheikhpura (Bihar), 18-year-old Sushmita Kumari delivered the baby when she was writing the Hindi paper.
Both mother and her baby were soon taken to the nearby Hospital, Condition of mother and child is good.
Not only this, Punjabi will now be compulsory up to class X in all schools in the state, yes in Navodaya and other CBSE as well.
All state education schools and also those affiliated to CBSE or ICSE, including Navodaya and KV's will have to strict to this law.
Now everyone will say Chak De Punjabi...
Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas are quality schools. In order to make such schools more accessible to SC and ST students, Government plans to establish Navodaya Vidyalayas in 20 districts that have a large concentration of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes. I propose to set apart Rs.130 crore in 2008-09 for this purpose.
