A bright student since childhood, my daughter Susmita Jha is currently pursuing her PhD in Cooch Vihar, West Bengal. She obtained AIR -891 in ICAR exam and completed B.Sc from SHIATS Agricultural College, Allahabad and completed masters in Plant Pathology from Uttar Bangal Agricultural University, Coochh Bihar, West Bengal. By God's grace she is currently employed in a project funded by ICARDA-GOWB. Brought up in a middle class, joint family background, she is a perfect blend of traditional values and modern culture. She is considered as courteous, innovative, sincere, intelligent and sensible by her acquaintances and makes me a proud father. Pretty close to nature, she loves to express herself with sketching and poetry.
