Youngest person to clear Class 12 CBSE exam

Satyam Kumar who cleared the IIT-JEE exam with an all India rank of 8,137 , at the age of 12 years, has also become the youngest person in the country to clear the Class 12th CBSE exam. He has passed the exam with 85% marks.

Satyam belongs to Bakhorapur village in Bhojpur district. He has decided to appear for the IIT-JEE exam once again to better his results and get into an IIT.

Satyam is again another proof to the world that Biharis have the capability and can do really well in any area that they want to. Infact , once Biharis have decided, they can also change the face of the world as they are doing now by changing the face of Bihar.  This recognition can also be fathomed from the example where Bihar's labor minister is part of a 4 member delegation attending the 16-day 101st International Labour Conference (ILC) to be organized by the International Labour Organization (ILO) at Geneva (Switzerland), from May 30th.  The other members of the delegation are Union labour and employment minister Mallikarjun Kadge and the labour ministers of Andhra Pradesh and Haryana. The last time Bihar was part of this delegation was in 1984, 28 years back.

Early signs of social changes?

Two brides refused to marry their grooms because the grooms had come drunk to the marriage. Not only that, but the families of the brides also fully supported their daughters. Interesting and a welcome news : Unlike yester years, the families broke the tradition of forcing their girls into marriage after seeing the evils without fearing any social stigma. This happening in two different villages is a good sign and shows that such incidents have started to happen at the grass root level in Bihar.

Are these the indicators or early signs of the changing social framework in Bihar? I would think so and would love to be proven correct on this.

More details on the incidents themselves can be found in the DNA news article "Brides in Bihar refuse to marry drunk grooms
