Salaam Sidra.


Al Salamu 'Alaykum.

This uplifting piece of news came on twocircles.net. Enjoy it:

Patna: She is a silver lining in the dark cloud and thus could be a role model. Sidrah Jamal of Patna’s Sultanganj area – a thickly Muslim-dominated pocket of the state capital – has earned honor and fame for not just her already well-off and well-educated family but for the community also – the community whose females are described as the most illiterate among the rest of the communities in the country.
Sidrah has got Gold Medal for topping in the Postgraduate Diploma in Computer Applications (PGDCA) at IGNOU – the New Delhi based world’s largest open university with study centres across the country and in different parts of the globe.
The youngest daughter of Mr. Shaukat Jamal and Mrs. Subuhi Jamal, Sidrah is pursuing Master in Computer Application (MCA) at IGNOU – the first year of the course is also considered as Post Graduate Diploma In Computer Applications (PGDCA). She has topped in the first year of MCA. She was awarded the medal at the 24th convocation ceremony of IGNOU held on 5th September. Sidrah did BCA in 2010 from Patna Women's College, Patna University.
Sidrah’s father holds a high post in Railways while her two elder sisters are lecturer at the prestigious Patna Women’s College.
Giving details about her family and herself, Sidrah told TwoCircles.net: “I am the youngest daughter of Mr. Shaukat Jamal and Mrs. Subuhi Jamal. My father is the Chief Inspector of Tickets in East Central Railways and my mother is homemaker. We are three sisters. My eldest sister Mrs. Soofia Fatima is the Head of Commerce Dept., Patna Women's College and my elder sister Mrs. Sadaf Fatima is an Economics Faculty, Commerce Dept., Patna Women's College.”
This year, around 27,103 students were eligible to receive degrees and diplomas in different streams from the Patna regional centre of IGNOU. Only four of them received gold medals for extraordinary performance in their respective disciplines.
Besides Sidrah, other three gold medallists at Patna were Abhijit Kumar, for masters in history, Vijeta Priyadarshani, for masters in public administration, and Gagan, for postgraduate diploma in disaster management programme.
'Alaykum Salam.

  1. PGDCA in New Delhi can be easily pursued if you are aware of Softdot institute. This education center offers quality education in every discipline. In fact, it offers govt. affiliated PGDCA degrees to its students. Are you looking for any such institute? Softdot is a one-stop destination then!
