Payal Birhar, daughter of Andhu Birhor, became the first Birhar girl among 36 Birhor Tandars in the district to pass the matriculation examination – the results of which were announced on Sunday. Hazaribagh Deputy Commissioner Aditya Kumar Anand said it was a great achievement for the district as the girls and boys of Birho were reluctant to go to class despite their best efforts but Payal was very interested in studying.
“We will provide all kinds of assistance for the education of this girl and other Birhor girls,” she said. He added that the state government is providing financial grants and stipends for their higher education
As far as Payal, who has passed the second division, the district administration will see that he has been admitted to the best institution, he said.
“I am proud to be the first student of TT Tandar in Hazaribagh district,” Payal told PTI.
She was a student of Parijan Ucha Vidyalaya in Kandsar in the remote Katkamsandi block of the district, from where she passed matriculation.
Her mother thanked Upendra Narayan Singh, principal of Sundari Devi School, and said that her guidance had inspired her to continue her studies and achieve success.
Payal said he had the desire to continue his ambition.
She said she would encourage other Birhor girls, who are mostly dropouts, to continue their studies to build their future.
Kandasar village chief Ram Kumar Mehta expressed happiness and rewarded the girl.
The population of Birhar in the district is 11,000.
Binod Ranjan, a teacher of tribal education at Binovave University in Hazaribagh, said the state government has given some incentives and facilities to send Birhors to their ward schools but despite that, they are less interested and want to go for their traditional tihdai ropes.
Jagannath Prasad, Block Education Officer, Katkamsandi, said the success would definitely encourage other Birhor girls to study.
