In the face of the most punishing circumstances, Vanisha Pathak, stood tall, like the poem she wrote for her father who she lost to Covid-19 in May, and just days after Covid-19 also took away her mother. Putting the pain and adversities aside, she focused on her studies, scoring 99.8 percent in her CBSE Class 10 exams, a city topper who shares the top spot with 2 other students.
