Lipsa Bharti was part of the 10-member Indian team that participated in an international seminar on Nobel scientist Madame Curie in Warsaw, Poland, last month.

 A Class 10 student of DAV School at Talcher Thermal, she was selected from the State to compete at the national-level debate last year on the subject ‘Chemistry for human welfare; promises and concerns.’ She stood second in the national seminar, organised by the National Science Centre.

 Top 10 successful students from India and that of 13 other countries were selected to participate in the international seminar, organised by the Polish Government. “This global event was organised to commemorate the centenary of Madam Curie receiving the Nobel Prize in Chemistry,” said Lipsa.

 “On reaching the centre at Warsaw on September 18, the Indian students had to undergo a written test on the subject. I stood second among the Indian students,” she added.

 “I am proud that my daughter was selected from among the hundreds of students in the country,” said Shyamamani Besoi, Lipsa’s mother.
