It is clear that Shalini could have scored much better if not for some obstacles that hit her in life. The 17 year old has studied in Tamil medium from class one to seven. Shalini’s father had been bedridden for over a decade after falling off a building. As a result of this, her mother had to start working as a housemaid.

After this, her brother was diagnosed with blood cancer and Shalini’s mother had to spend most of her time to take care of the boy in the hospital. As a result of this, Shalini had to take up her mother’s job. She would work in five houses every day and then spend what little time she had with her studies and finally managed to score 85 percent.
