When Sarita Zagade entered her SSC exam centre in Dadar, she attracted a lot of eyeballs from both students and the invigilator. But that did not make the 43-year-old homemaker nervous, who was taking her first ever board examination. “Everyone seemed to be looking at me and I realised that they weren’t used to older people in the exam hall, but I had to concentrate on writing my exam,” said Sarita, the Parel resident, who is taking the SSC examination, along with her 16-year-old daughter Shrutika. Also giving them company is her elder daughter, Kshitija, who is appearing for the HSC examination.

The mother and daughters are confident of excelling in their exams. “My daughters and my family has been extremely supportive of me and so I am able to give my best. We won’t disappoint each other,” said Sarita.
