Education awareness has drastically improved among women in the past decade. Girls have started showing their interest in education and have been walking alongside boys. There are Indian states where girls outperform boys be it board exams, competitive exams or jobs.
Ranju Kumari is yet another example who has shown the extent of women’s passion and perseverance for education. A resident of Muzaffarpur in Bihar, Ranju walked right out after delivering her second child and rushed to the examination hall to appear for her B.Ed. exam.
Time was cruel when it tried to test the strength of Ranju. As she was about to get ready for her exam on Saturday, August 13, labour pain clenched her abdominal muscles and she was taken to a hospital where she delivered her child.

Without caring about her fragile condition and leaving her newborn behind, she left in the ambulance to appear for her exam. Just one and a half hour after giving birth to her baby boy, Ranju disregarded the doctors’ advice and left to sit for her Bachelor of Education (BEd) examination.
Despite the fact that Ranju was 30 minutes late, she did not lose hope. Impressed by her strength and determination, Mamta Rani who was the superintendent of the center allowed Ranju to appear for the exam.
"We salute her dedication to studies. She has proved women's awareness towards studies has increased," said Rani.
