Raksha Gopal is not just an ace scholar!

Securing the first position in the Std XII board examination is no mean feat. Mention the word topper, and it brings to your mind the stereotypical persona of a scholar. However, this year’s CBSE topper Raksha Gopal has shattered the stereotype.

Not only a good student but she’s also a fine artist. She plays the keyboards, sings songs and is an ardent reader. And interestingly, her hobbies did not take a back seat even during her exams.

She took to singing and playing the keyboards when she was five years old, and had joined training classes then. “My mother pushed me into the world of music. My sister and father are superb singers and musicians,” says Raksha.



Speaking to City Spidey, Raksha shared her love for movies, with Shah Rukh Khan being her favourite actor. She says, “I’ve watched Kal Ho Na Ho a number of times. I’ve watched it even during examinations. King Khan is the cutest guy in Bollywood and I have watched all his movies.”

Her pillars of support are Rajini, her mother, and Prerna, her elder sister. She considers them as her closest friends and says, “They’ve stood by my side at all times.”

“She understands her responsibility well. During her exams, I used to take her out to reduce the pressure of studies,” says her proud mother.
