When the results were announced,Basanti was in tears after she cleared her class 10 exams conducted by Odisha state open school. She is a live example to people that dreams have no age bar. They can be fulfilled at any age but with sheer determination.
“My failure in clearing the matric exam always rankled me. I also realised that without clearing the matric, I possibly could not get any promotion,” said Muduli, who shared this moment of joy with her elder son Sibananda who also have cleared the exam in his first attempt.
Devotion, dedication and determination can move mountains. Malkangiri’s Basanti Muduli, an Anganwadi worker who appeared for Class X examination along with her son this year, has proved it right by clearing the examination in her first attempt.

Basanti credits her success to her supporting husband Laba Pattanayak and her son Sibananda.”I used to study from the books of my son. He used to teach me everything that was taught at the school,” said Basanti.
Laba Pattanayak, the proud husband now supports her and wants her to study further. Ramesh Chandra Majhi, the MP said “I hope more and more dropouts enrol and study further”.
