Record 19 students bag first 10 positions in WBHS exam
A boarding school run by monks where students have no access to mobile phones and TV sets has created a record of sorts in the West Bengal Higher Secondary examinations with 19 students coming in the top 10 list.

Nine students of the Ramakrishna Mission Vidyalaya, Narendrapur, bagged the first seven positions. With 99.2 per cent marks, Billashib Basu Mullick, topped the list.

His classmate Sk Manirul Mandal (98.2 per cent marks) grabbed the second spot while another student from the same school Mrinmoy Roy (97.8 per cent) secured the third position.

Another two students each from the school have earned their places in the fourth and fifth ranks, while one each have made it to the sixth and seventh ranks.

In the ninth and tenth positions were five students each from the school.

"Altogether 19 students have made it from our school into the top 10 list. This is a record," School headmaster Swami Vedapurushananda told PTI.

When asked about the secret behind the astounding success he said theirs is a boarding school where there is no outside influence on students.

"We are able to mould them since childhood. They do not have any outside influence. We don''t allow them access to mobiles or TVs even. But we have meditation sessions, cultural and sports programmes for a balanced life. We give stress on discipline," he said.
