Ahmedabad: Nagma Pathan was the first person in her family to have gone to school. Now she has successfully cleared CA final in her first attempt.
With this achievement, Nagma is the daughter of proud parents who never went to school. Her father Yusuf Khan Pathan is a taxi driver. “Because I and my wife are not educated, I always wanted my daughter to study well. I worked hard to provide facilities for her studies. Living in a one-room house and not celebrating Eid for the past seven years in order to save money so that I can spend on her studies, was really difficult. But I think, my sacrifices have borne some fruits now,” said an emotional Yusufkhan.
Nagma, who has fought hard to reach this stage, is of the opinion that Muslim girls should not limit their thoughts to marriage. “They need to change their concept of life, which is not limited to marriage and kitchen,” she said and added that her first priority is to secure a job so that she could help her parents financially and to ensure education for her two younger sisters. She further said, “I want to help those poor girls who want to study.”
