    Congratulations vibhali, you deserve it because you have left no stone unturned.Hats off to you and your mom and dad.
    Parents and children, take note of the various competitions vibhali has attended. It is not enough if you take only 98 % marks in exams. There should be alround . Equal importance should be given to. Extra curricular activities. It is possible if you stay away from mobile, iPad etc.
