A SCHOOLGIRL in Tamil Nadu, India, refused to accept an award from a politician because he allegedly humiliated the family a few years ago, reported Tamil Nesan.
S. Janani, a high school student in Manjoor, Nilgiris, had scored 489 marks in her Class 10 board exams, ranking second in the category of government schools.
However, Janani said that she would not accept the award from Ooty assemblyman M. Buddhichandran.
