These twins are studying here from nursery to class ninth.

However, having so many twins in the school has its own problems. Many teachers say that they sometimes have trouble identifying kids in the class.
Dr. Jyoti is teaching for last 25 years and five years back she took decisive step to open a school. She look it as her passion not profession. She says,” my husband who is also retired as physics professor helps me in my venture and my daughters are also understands my emotions.” School has nominal fee in its area and prime motive is to serve the society. She says,” My mother-in -law helped me a lot during my post-graduation and doctorate.” Children are very happy in this school.
