Arin Sharma, a boy belonging to Jammu city who cleared National Talent Search Examination is one among four students from Jammu who cleared this exam. He had an exclusive interview with JK Media executive Ashish Kohli where he talked about his preparations and journey.
Q. Arin, first of all congratulations. Tell us something about the exam and it’s procedure.
Very few people know about the National Talent Search Examination (NTSE). Basically it’s an exam that provides you scholarships for your future studies. But, it’s not limited to money only. It adds to your resume and experiences.
NTSE is conducted every year. You have to fill its form and appear for phase 1. The syllabus mostly includes topics from 9th and 10th standard subjects. If you qualify phase 1, congratulations you are eligible for phase 2, and if you qualify that, double congratulations, your life is set (laughs).
Many children suffer through parents’ separation and then are targeted by problems like anxiety attacks worrying about their future. This exam is quite helpful for them to secure their studies.
Q. Rakhi Ji (Talking to Arin’s mother) tell us something about Arin’s nature and this exam.
NTSE, to be practical is very helpful. It has a lot of benefits especially for a single mother. To be frank, I was worried about Arin’s education expenses and wished he could sponsor them himself.
Jammu public lacks information about such exams. Parents are usually concerned about board exams. I think everyone should get aware about such brilliant opportunities.
Talking about Arin, he is a very obedient child. He friends aren’t that close to him but their parents are. Everyone praises Arin for his obedience and his sweet behaviour. It’s his hard work that has paid off today and he’s made me feel proud.
I still remember giving him food during his study hours. I had made my time table according to his. I would give him time to study and eat as per his needs. Thanks to Lord Shiva, my parents, my Sir and our everyone who blessed Arin for the best.
Q. Arin, what’s your YouTube channel about?
I just started my YouTube channel 5-6 months back. It’s a guidance channel that gives you information about NTSE and it’s preparation like how a NTSE student’s routine should be and what all books you need for it. It’s almost a new channel and very soon new videos will be uploaded.
Through NTSE, a qualified student gets Rs. 1250 per month as education expenses by the Government and his higher studies expenses are handled by it too.

Death of a 24 year old boy, family claims murder
An incident came forward from Thalsara area of Bhalla in Jammu and Kashmir where a 24 year old boy’s dead body was found. The family along with the village people, claiming it to be a murder blocked the Doda-Bhaderwah Highway.
According to them, the boy was innocent and didn’t have any personal grudges. However, the dead body’s torn clothes and broken bones have proved it to be a murder.
“It was morning when my son went for a haircut. Someone informed me about his death in the evening. While I rushed to the place, I saw around 200 people around the dead body. It’s a murder and we want justice.” said the boy’s father
“It’s a forestry area where hardly people are seen. How did the boy reach there? He was first killed and then thrown from a height. The Police hasn’t helped us yet. In fact, they told us to compromise. This is beyond limits.” added another
The family has demanded justice and requested Jammu and Kashmir Police to investigate the matter. “Police must check the call records of the boy’s phone and find the culprit. We want the murderer to be sentenced to death.” they said

Pegasus Snoopgate Row: Shiv Sena Protest Against Phone Tapping Case in Jammu
Manish Saini led the Shivsena party on Friday protested against the Central Government in the Pegasus Snoopgate case. The protestors prepared a bier and put their smartphones on it, showcasing the last rites of the smartphones. The party demanded that a thorough investigation should take place in the case.
While talking to the media, Saini said, “today, we are protesting against the phone incident. So many political leaders, Journalists and business people have become victims of this phone tapping incident. A third person now sees the data in our smartphones which earlier belonged to us, so we are destroying them as we don’t want our privacy to get affected. My appeal to PM Narendra Modi is that a probe by a free agency should take place, and a Data protection bill should be introduced in the Country”.
Yesterday Senior Congress leaders, along with youth congress, protested against the same issue and demanded the resignation of Home Minister Amit Shah.

Inflation is at an all-time high in the Country. The petrol and diesel prices are increasing rapidly, and the people of J&K suffered a significant setback when they came to know that ethanol is being mixed in the fuel. Several daily wagers, Asha workers, Dental Surgeons are on the roads protesting to demand justice for them. Taking a jibe at all these JK Panthers Party State Secretary Gagan slammed the Union Government and demanded the resignation of all Union Ministers, including PM Narendra Modi.

While speaking, Gagan said, “we should be thankful to the government that we finally see good days. But, if BJP talks about these good days, we demand that they return us our bad days. When BJP was in opposition, their leaders were the first to come on the roads with LPG cylinders wearing garlands of onion and potatoes. Instead of hunger strikes, people should now adopt political trends to raise their voices as with early trends, the Union Government will not take any action”.
“In the BJP’s regime, unemployment soared, inflation has raged, and GDP has deteriorated. People have voted them to bring down all these matters, but instead, they have contributed to the issues. Now it’s high time, and the Modi Government should step down. Our BSF/CISF Aspirants, PDD/PWD Daily wagers, Dental Surgeons are on the road. Many of our daily wagers die every day, and there is no one to compensate them”, he added.
