Arts Topper To Pursue Literature
Ambika Kamat from Ponda who topped the Arts stream at the Higher Secondary School Certificate examinations with 90.16 per cent marks said topping was not her goal but scoring 90 per cent was.
Although both her parents are science graduates with the mother Seema holding a PhD and father a science graduate, Ambika joined the Arts stream because of her love for literature. She now wishes to do her PhD in English.
In fact, Seema who is the vice principal of PES College at Farmagudi said that even her colleagues wondered why her daughter opted for Arts stream and said that she and her husband stood by their child’s decision.
