It was double delight at the Nayak household in Chikmagalur when the PU II results were announced a couple of days back.
The reason—twins Ashwini M Nayak and Anuradha M Nayak, daughters of Manjunath Nayak (presently transferred from Chikmagalur to Bangalore as Principal Senior Civil Judge and CJM) and Rekha Nayak, had scored identical 570 marks (95 per cent). The elated mother, Rekha Nayak, when contacted said she was overjoyed with her daughters securing the same score.
“Their identical marks even prompted some to ask me if my daughters studying in Sai Angles PU college in Chikmagalur had indulged in copying. However, the sisters were not even seated next to each other in the examination hall,” said Rekha, who hails from Yennehole near Karkala in Udupi district. The twins are of course celebrating their success.
Ashwini secured cent per cent marks in Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science. By securing 99 marks in Chemistry she secured a whopping 99.5 marks in PCMC. But Anuradha M Nayak secured 98.5 per cent (Physics-96, Chemistry-98, Mathematics-99, Computer Science-100) and yet achieved 95 per cent marks by doing better in languages than her twin sister.
It was a sweet revenge for Ashwini M Nayak who had secured a per centage less (85 per cent) in SSLC examinations when compared to Anuradha M Nayak (86 per cent). “There is intense competition among us,” confesses Ashwini, who is elder by a minute. Both of them besides being identical also share alike many likes and dislikes.
For instance, the hobbies of twins are dancing and reading novels. Chetan Bhagat is their favourite author (having seen the movie Two States, they are now reading the novel). However Ashwini confesses being the talkative one, while Anuradha is reserved. Having intensely competed until their teens, they now favour pursuing different courses in engineering.
One among the twins will be opting for an engineering course with computers while the other twin will be opting for the electronics and communication course.
