Gowhar and Shakir scored 657 and 651 out of 720, respectively
It is indeed a moment of glory for Bashir Ahmad, a shopkeeper from the Baramulla district of Kashmir. His twin sons, Gowhar and Shakir Bahir, have both cleared the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2020.
Thanking his parents and brother, Gowhar, who scored 657 out 720, said his parents always pushed them both to focus on their studies. Shakir, who scored 651, added that both the brothers know the value of hard work, something they’ve been taught since they were children by their parents.
“We are a middle-class family and do not have much but my wife and I were adamant that our sons should study and do well. I barely make around Rs 4,000 to 5,000 a month from my store. My wife and I also pick up other jobs at times to make extra money so that we could continue to support their education. Not only us, but they have made the whole valley proud,” says Ahmed.
